  • How to Test IPVanish App for Firestick

    1. 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:
    Test the VPN server on your Fire Stick
    This is your Firestick’s IP address when Connected to the secure 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.
  • Make sure you see data transferring securely in your new VPN app
    Press the Disconnect button to finish testing the VPN connection and move on to the last step
  • 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:
  • IPVanish app for Firestick IP address
    IP address when not connected to the IPVanish app for Firestick.  See how the IP address changed?  This means you’re protected by the VPN!
  • 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.
  • Wrap Up
