Test the VPN connection using the steps below. It takes about 5 seconds. You just look at your IP address without the VPN connection and make sure it’s different than the IP address that shows with the VPN connected. For step-by-step instructions, see below.
How to Test IPVanish App for Firestick
When the VPN app is Connected to any VPN server, your IP address will be different than when it is not connected to a VPN server. This is easier to check than it sounds. Just look at the top-left corner of the IPVanish app screen after you Connect to a VPN server:
See how the “Visible Location” in the screenshot above says “209.123.456.789″? (The “123, 456, 789” are blurred-out in the screenshot above). This is the IP address of the VPN server when you’re connected to it. As soon as you Disconnect, the app will reveal your real IP address.
Now press the Disconnect button using the Fire TV remote.
After you’re no longer Connected to the VPN server, observe how the IP address shown in the “Visible Location” area of the IPVanish app is now different (it now says “70..” instead of “209..” from the previous Step). This is your true IP address (when the VPN is disconnected). This is the IP address we want to hide! See the screenshot below to see how the IP address is different after we Disconnected from the VPN server:
After you’ve successfully tested the VPN by verifying that your IP address is different after you Connect using the IPVanish Firestick app (aka Firestick VPN app), re-connect by pressing “Connect”! As long as you’re connected, your data is safe.

Thanks for the help on so many issues with Kodi as well the presentation of your tutorials. People learn differently and I’m one that does better with with tutorials than videos. I understand the importance of the ipvanish and wish you luck and success on it.You certainly have your bases covered. I’m using a different one at moment. China enforced a rule recently making it a violation to have/use one just last week I believe. Look forward to enjoying Kodi with your help. Starting from scratch tonight.
Yes; you are. IPVanish continues to run in the background, keeping your data encrypted and routed through the ‘apparent access point’ you chose.
