How to Change Location on FireStick | Bypass Geo Restrictions


This is a step-by-step guide on how to change your location on FireStick, Fire TV, FireStick 4K Max, and Fire TV Cube. 

FireStick devices are set to a default location based on the information you provide during the FireStick setup or the country associated with your Amazon account.

However, you can always change your FireStick location to make the most of your device. For example, it will help you unlock geo-restricted content and get personalized weather updates and content recommendations.

Please note that, until recently, FireStick users could easily choose their desired location from Settings. But this feature is not applicable anymore.

2 Ways to Change Location on FireStick

Following are two tried & tested ways to change location on FireStick from anywhere in the world:

How to Change Location on FireStick Using Amazon Alexa

The first method on our list requires you to install and use the Amazon Alexa app. But, unfortunately, this app is not accessible to many regions from the Amazon App Store.

Though the app has an APK version, it offers limited functionality on FireStick. Therefore, you will have to sideload its APK on the Android device.

Remember, changing location via Amazon Alexa will not unblock geo-restrictions; it will only customize Alexa’s responses to include local weather updates, news, and traffic information based on the set location.

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open your Android mobile and type Alexa app APK” in the search engine. Choose from the results.


Step 2: Scroll down and select “Get the Latest Version”.


Step 3: Select “Download”.


Step 4: Choose “Download Again”

P.S. Since I have already installed the Amazon Alexa APK, it prompted “Download Again”. For the first timers, it will only show “Download”.


Step 5: You will see the “Downloading File” icon on the top.


Step 6: Once the APK is downloaded, click “Open”.


Step 7: Click “Install”.


Step 8: The installation process will start; wait for it to complete.


Step 9: Click “Open”.


Step 10: Enter your Amazon account credentials.


Step 11: You may enter your number for verification or skip this part.


Step 12: This is the interface of Amazon Alexa app; choose “Devices” from the bottom menu.

Step 14: Navigate to “Location”.


Step 15: Enter the desired location in the search bar.


Step 16: You have successfully changed the location on your FireStick device!

Since not all VPNs are reliable, we highly recommend you opt for one of the leaders in the market – ExpressVPN.

Follow the steps below to install and use ExpressVPN on FireStick:

Step 1: Go to the FireStick home screen and tap the “Search” icon.


Step 2: Type “Express VPN” and then select it from the list.


Step 3: Choose “Express VPN” from the results.

Step 7: Choose “Sign In”.


Step 8: Click “Sign In With Remote”.


Step 9: Enter your credentials.


Step 10: Tap the “OK” icon.


Step 11: Click “OK”.


Step 12: Click “No Thanks”.


Step 13: Click on the location that default location on the app. In our case, it was “Singapore – Jurong”.
