Today I will guide you on how to install the Aurora Store on FireStick. The steps provided in this guide apply to all Fire TV devices, including FireStick 4K Max, FireStick 4K, FireStick Lite, Fire TV Cube, and more.
What is Aurora Store?
Aurora Store is a third-party app store for Amazon FireStick and other Android devices. This app store features a design similar to Google Play Store. It features several official apps that are not listed on Amazon App Store. In addition, it offers various unofficial apps from third-party developers.
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 Aurora Store Safe?
Since Aurora Store is not an official app, FireStickTricks can’t say that it is entirely safe to use. There are always some red flags while installing a third-party app. I can’t provide a 100% guarantee of its safety. However, after checking the application on VirusTotal, I found no malicious or virus files. Check the result below:
Is Aurora Store Legal to Use?
Unfortunately, FireStickTricks doesn’t have the resources to independently verify the legal status of every app available on the Aurora Store. Besides, I strongly discourage using any illegal app available in this store. Therefore, I recommend using ExpressVPN while using these third-party apps to protect yourself from harm.
