What Is Yes Player?
YesPlayer is an app that lets you play various video, audio, and subtitle formats on your FireStick. From FLV to MP4 and SRT, YesPlayer supports it all.
Featuring a simple and intuitive interface, YesPlayer is relatively easy to use. Also, it offers a good range of customization features like adjusting the layout and theme.
With YesPlayer, you can stream sports, live channels, movies, TV shows, and more. Thanks to the support of using a single streaming, you can jump straight into any media.
YesPlayer lets you watch streams in high definition and other resolutions. That said, all the richness makes YesPlayer one of the top-ranked media players for Android devices.
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 YesPlayer Safe & Legal?
YesPlayer is one of the top media players for FireStick. But is it safe and legal to use?
Regarding safety, YesPlayer is a third-party app because it’s unavailable on Amazon App Store. Therefore, like other third-party apps, there’s no guarantee of its safety. Amazon doesn’t provide any support to third-party apps, including safety. So, at FireStickTricks.com, we can’t certify whether YesPlayer is totally safe or not.
That said, here’s a screenshot of the virus analysis I ran on YesPlayer’s APK file:
About legality, YesPlayer is legal to use if you aren’t streaming illegal content via it. However, as it supports URL streaming, some users might take unfair advantage of it. However, you don’t have to worry if you are using it just like any other media player. In conclusion, I recommend using a VPN like ExpressVPN when using YesPlayer to maintain anonymity and privacy.
