In this guide, I will show you how to install and use AppLinked on FireStick. I will also provide the instructions to register and create AppLinked code and download the files using this app. The same guide will work for all Amazon Fire TV versions, New FireStick 4K, New FireStick 4K Max, Android TV boxes, and Android smartphones and tablets.
What is AppLinked?
AppLinked is a file-sharing app designed by Inside4ndroid, the developer studio that also created UK Turks, Strix, and Media Lounge. You may consider AppLinked as an alternative to FileLinked (a popular but discontinued file-sharing app). All you need to do is enter the code, then browse and download the APKs.
Inside AppLinked Store, you can download various apps across various categories, including movies, TV shows, live TV, sports, utility apps, and much more. Besides APKs, the app also lets you share images and videos. The app converts an APK link or group of APKs into a numeric code, allowing the quick installation of apps.
The app is compatible with Android TV boxes, Amazon Fire TV devices, and Android smartphones and tablets.
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 AppLinked Safe & Legal?
I used Virus Total to scan the APK file of AppLinked. Virus Total is a very popular online antivirus. The scan result shows that 8 security vendors found the file malicious. This is discouraging. I have installed this app on my FireStick, and it hasn’t caused any trouble. However, I still advise you to exercise caution.
If you do not want to install AppLinked anymore, you may try one of its alternatives.
We don’t know whether AppLinked is legal or not. If you are downloading third-party streaming apps from AppLinked to stream copyrighted content, you may get into trouble.
It is advised that you watch only the content available in the public domain. Furthermore, safeguard your online identity and maintain your privacy by using a reliable VPN service, such as ExpressVPN.
