Today, we will look at how to install AnimeDLR on FireStick and other Fire TV products, including FireStick 4K, 4K Max, FireStick Lite, and more. I will also discuss whether the app is safe to use or not. We will also briefly look at the app’s features.
What is AnimeDLR?
If you are an anime fan, then this app is for you. AnimeDLR lets you watch tons and tons of anime from all sorts of genres for absolutely free. New anime are uploaded, and their episodes are constantly updated to go with the archive of older ones. Though AnimeDLR doesn’t host any video itself, it links you to multiple sources where you can find what you are looking for and start streaming.
You might as well use an external video player like VLC or MX Player for a better experience.
There are not just subbed anime but dubbed as well. That means you can watch an anime in multiple languages along with subtitles. There is a download option as well, after which you can watch the content offline. However, I do not recommend downloading on FireStick as it has low storage.
Please note that you will need the Mouse Toggle app to navigate AnimeDLR as it is not 100% remote-friendly.
AnimeDLR is now part of our library of featured apps for FireStick.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!

Is AnimeDLR Legal and Safe to Use?
AnimeDLR is a third-party app and is therefore not 100% reliable. This is the case with every app that is not official. Therefore, we cannot conclude that AnimeDLR is totally safe.
However, the results from VirusTotal show no viruses, which is a positive sign. This means there are no viruses or malicious files inside the app. However, it still can’t be trusted entirely, but at least it won’t malfunction like some of the other third-party apps.
Since AnimeDLR is from an unofficial repository, FireStickTricks cannot verify whether the app is legal or not. Therefore, we cannot determine if it has obtained the licenses to distribute the content. We do not condone copyright violations. However, I recommend Using a reliable FireStick VPN, like ExpressVPN, to avoid any legal issues.
How to Install AnimeDLR on FireStick
So AnimeDLR is not an official app. It is not available on any official app store, so you would have to download its APK file. A third-party app cannot be downloaded directly on FireStick. For this, we need an app called Downloader to sideload APK files on FireStick.
Sideloading, in simple terms, is the installation process for apps that are not available on the Amazon App Store.
Now without any further ado, let’s go through the installation step by step.
