The following tutorial provides step-by-step instructions to Install VPN Privacy Dot on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV/Google TV.

VPN Privacy Dot is a tool used by cord-cutters and streamers to verify their VPN Connection status on any streaming device.

This includes the Amazon Firestick and Fire TV which are the most popular media devices available today.

VPN Privacy Dot is a VPNSafetyDot Alternative similar to VPN Monitor Dot that works in the same fashion.

After installation, users will find a small icon in the upper right-hand corner of their device informing them of their VPN Connection status.

When your VPN is turned on and working, the icon will blink green. If it is not working, the icon will blink red.

This is a great way to ensure peace of mind when streaming and always keep you informed of your VPN status.

While using this tool is a fabulous way to check your VPN’s connection, it cannot ensure your safety.

The best way to do this is with a VPN Kill Switch that is available on the Surfshark Application.

Using a Kill Switch such as the one within Surfshark will automatically terminate your network connection if your VPN is disconnected for any reason.

This guarantees you are never unprotected when using 3rd party apps, APKs, websites, and more.

TROYPOINT recommends using a VPN Detection tool such as VPN Privacy Dot in conjunction with a Kill Switch for total protection on any device.

In the guide below, we are installing VPN Privacy Dot on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

However, this will also work for any variation of Firestick as well as Android devices such as NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL, and Chromecast with Google TV.

  1. Does not work to show vpn is not connected. Always a green dot whether vpn is connected or not connected. Dumbest app ever for privacy monitoring.

  2. On VPN Privacy Dot Free, I keep getting an error massage: failed host lookup and on VPN Monitor Dot, it keeps shutting down. Can you Recommend a good free VPN? I’m using NordVPN, but I’m Not very happy with it.

    The free safety VPN dot still works. Just discard the message that tell you to upgrade. Open safety dot, set it to on either before or after you’ve turn on your VPN. It’s still working for me.

  4. Thanks to dev for this; it works a treat with IP Vanish. You will need to turn off VPN before downloading.
    VPN Safety Dot uninstalled – it worked great but whoever came up with that pricing structure is nuts! It’s way too expensive for what it provides especially with the cost of living crisis. Shot themselves in the foot there.

  5. While all VPN safety dots are a great tool to have, most of the people I’ve spoken with including myself will not install it because it flashes either green or red and it is distracting. If the developers would come up with just a solid Green Dot or a solid red dot, that would be much more preferable. Thanks so much for all your help the streaming Community really appreciates it!

    1. Hi Brian, I use NordVpn and it works perfectly. I’ve installed it on Firestick, Firetv and on a MUVIP Android device no problem.
