Fortunately, the possibility to download Android apps is among the finest features of the Firestick. So, TikTok can also be installed on Firestick in the same way.
As the Firestick is based on Fire OS, which is extremely close to Android OS, you can easily use an APK file to download any Android application on your Firestick device.
WARNING FIRESTICK USERS
YOUR INFORMATION IS EXPOSED
Your location is: Ashburn VA
Your current IP address is: 2001:4455:2f7:b700:f880:7bad:b46b:1768
You can stream and download anonymously through your PC, Mac, Android, and iPhone through IP Vanish.

Google trackers are lurking on 75% of websites. Cover your tracks to protect yourself.
However, if your Firestick lacks a front-facing camera, you can only use it to watch TikTok clips or videos from around the world.
In this friendly guide, you will get to know the 4 best methods to install and watch TikTok on your Firestick device.
The official TikTok app for Firestick is barely usable. So what we do instead is install a much better app on your Firestick called TikTok Lite APK.
So without further ado, let’s get started!
Overview and Features of TikTok on the Firestick
As TikTok can now be easily installed on Firestick, everybody can use all features of this highly famous app on all the Firestick devices.
Going across clips or videos is quite simple and works nearly identically to how this app functions on an Android or iOS device.
People can also easily log in to their TikTok profiles to see all of their top picks and interesting videos.
Notice: Hackers create fake WiFi hotspots to steal your passwords when you log in to public WiFi. Secure your data.
Setting Up your Firestick Device for Downloading TikTok App
So, in order to download an app on your Firestick that is not listed in the Amazon App Store, we have to turn on the enable applications from unknown sources in the Firestick’s settings.
It’s highly crucial to turn this on or else you would be unable to download the TikTok app APK on your Firestick device.
Amazon disables this feature as standard, therefore we need to activate it directly. If you have no idea about doing it? Don’t fret, just see the following steps:
- Navigate into your Firestick’s settings and select the “My Fire TV” option.
- Next, you have to choose the “Developer” option.
- To turn it on, go to the Settings > Apps > Unknown sources.
- Following that, it will display a type of warning notification; just dismiss it and hit the “OK” button.
Now that you have enabled this setting, you’re completely ready to download the TikTok app on your Firestick device.
Here’s Why You Need to Use a Reliable VPN on Your Firestick
VPN is software that protects your access to the internet and transmits it via an external host.
For instance, TikTok has been blocked in a wide range of locations. So, a reliable VPN is required if you wish to access a service that is not allowed in your location.
It also prohibits others from tracing your regular internet activity. As a result, your activities on the internet will be kept hidden, and neither your ISP nor the authorities will be able to detect them.
How to Watch Tiktok on Firestick (4 Methods)
Out of the 4 Methods to watch TikTok on Firestick, my favorite is Method #1. This method gives you the most functionality. If you want the fastest way to watch TikTok on a Fire TV stick, then use Methods 2, 3, or 4.
Method 1: Install TikTok on Firestick Using Aptoide TV
Use the step-by-step instructions below to install TikTok lite APK on Firestick. Fully functional!
This is the only KNOWN way (to use Aptoide TV) to install TikTok Lite APK 1.7.6 on Firestick.

- Press Open to launch Aptoide for Firestick. Press Allow, then press Cancel.
- Press the Search icon in Aptoide. Press Allow.
- Enter “TikTok” into the Search field
- Select TikTok Lite (select the first occurrence of TikTok Lite, which has the lightning bolt icon. To double-check that you install the right version, make sure the version says 1.7.6 (or later) after selecting it.)
- Press INSTALL
- Press Open. You’re almost done!
- Follow the steps below to enable your firestick to navigate around TikTok using a Bluetooth mouse or virtual mouse app (like Cetusplay).
How to install Cetusplay to use a smartphone as a virtual mouse for Firestick
- Open the app store on your phone
- Search for Cetusplay. Press Install on Cetusplay. Press open
- Select your Fire TV from within the Cetusplay smartphone app to install the Cetusplay RECEIVER app on your Firestick. ( Your Firestick may appear as “Smart TV” in the Cetusplay app) (if you see an error message, make sure ADB debugging is enabled in Firestick settings – developer options. If it’s enabled, restart Firestick. It’s common for ADB to go offline and require a Firestick restart). Also, make sure Firestick and smartphone are on the same WiFi network.
- On your firestick, press “always allow”, then Yes/ok/allow to allow your smartphone to connect to the Firestick.
- You’re done! Now use the “Mouse” feature in the Cetusplay smartphone app to use your phone’s screen as a virtual touchpad mouse for firestick.
The Cetusplay virtual mouse app works great to control TikTok for firestick.
So after you install TikTok lite for firestick and the Cetusplay app, you should have full TikTok app functionality on your Amazon FireTV stick.

Method 3: Watch TikTok on Firestick Using Official “More on Tiktok” app.
Tip: The “More on TikTok” app for Firestick was JUST recently released and needs work. You can use it to watch some videos, but the Search feature appears to be broken
Method 4: Cast smartphone screen to Firestick using FREE AirScreen APK
Note about TikTok Lite APK versions in Aptoide TV:
Version 1.7.6 seems to be the most stable, most usable, most complete version of TikTok for firestick
In contrast, version 1.3.3 (also in Aptoide tv) is the GO version of TikTok Lite, which works fine (and is faster and more lightweight than the newer version). BUT version 1.3.3 is unable to upload videos.
- So use version 1.7.6 (first occurrence of TikTok Lite in Aptoide tv) for a more complete TikTok on firestick experience.
Or use 1.3.3 for a faster, more lightweight, less jittery TikTok for firestick.
Notes on Installing Tiktok for Firestick
You can try using Downloader, Apps2Fire side loader, or my Filelinked code below, but I received the firestick error message “application not installed. This application is not compatible with your fire TV” with the downloader method and Filelinked.
Using Sideloader, I received an error message about not being able to extract some libraries.
Therefore, the only working install method I found was Aptoide TV.

So here’s the Filelinked code and Downloader address (“URL”) for the Tiktok Lite APK:
