Using Kindle Fire while being abroad
However, thanks to the forked version of Android, you can’t use VPN at all. It’s limited when it comes to connectivity, thus it’s not working very well outside the US. It’s rather crippled. When I found out that, I was very desperate. Till my friend told me I need to use a VPN service and a router (or to share PC’s Internet connection with the Kindle) in order to access Amazon’s premium features.
Doubtfully accepting his solution I was amazed. It was so simple. Here’s what you need to do. Amazon stripped down basic VPN connectivity features, but you will only need these two things:
- To get yourself a reliable VPN account such as HideMyAss, and
- To properly configure your router for VPN or to share PC’s connection (in which case you won’t need a router)
Of course, later on you may create an Amazon account. Check out the links above to learn more about the router you will need, and to get yourself a Kindle Fire VPN account at HideMyAss.
