Filelinked is the most popular app for Firestick and Android TV that provides the ability to sideload apps to the streaming device, and in this post, we ask, what is filelinked and is it safe?
WHAT IS FILELINKED?
Filelinked provides direct access to a database of Android applications (also known as repositories). Filelinked works by allowing developers, or users, the ability to create a shared repository of Android apps (also known as APK’s). Users can directly access a repository via a unique ‘Filelinked code’ via the Filelinked app, which is most popular among users of Android TV and Firestick.

Filelinked codes can be entered into the Filelinked app, which then allow the users to browse an ‘application market’, and install multiple Android applications from within Filelinked. It is a quick, and easy way to share a list of recommended or popular applications with other users.
Creating your own Filelinked repository is easy. You can create your own Filelinked code for free, by creating your own repository, on the Filelinked official website.
Filelinked is most popular on Firestick and Android TV boxes, as most repositories provide access to huge amounts of applications that allow users to watch HD Movies and Sports for FREE, and offer a wide range of the best apps for the Amazon Firestick.

IS FILELINKED SAFE?
Using Filelinked is both free, and safe. It is recommended to ensure you have a virus scanner, or malware security app installed on your Firestick or Android TV box when using Filelinked, as there are currently no security measures built into Filelinked, that detect malicious applications, which may contain a virus. Unlike the Google Playstore, which has strict security measures in place, any application can be uploaded to Filelinked repositories, which makes it easy for users to install an undetected virus, if no security detection app is installed on your device.
If you are are looking for a reliable security app, that works as a virus scanner, firewall, and more, we recommend using the free version AVG AntiVirus.
The other thing to consider, when using Filelinked, is your online activity.
Some of the streaming apps that are shared on Filelinked are based on torrents. If used, your IP address, and other associated data on your network, may be logged when downloading, or streaming using a Torrent. Torrents work by sharing bandwidth, to some extent. When you download (or stream from) a Torrent, you end up sharing, a part of that film, by allowing other users of that Torrent to download a chunk of the file, which is saved on your device, which is also known as a seed (or seeding). It is illegal to download, or stream in most countries, and when seeding a torrent, it means there is part of the Movie file which was accessed (and shared), using your IP address, which contributes towards the distribution of copyright content, which, in some countries, is dealt with very seriously, and can result in fines, and in some cases, criminal prosecutions.
There is an increase of Internet Providers (also known as an ISP), sending letters to users of different streaming apps such as Mobdro, or Showbox, advising that copyrighted content was accessed via their network. This may result in throttling of speeds, a warning being issued, which can result in the termination of your internet service, or in the worst case scenario, fines being issued.
There is a way to hide your IP address, which protects your online, and streaming activity from your ISP, or any other prying eyes, especially when Torrenting. The most common, and secure way to stream online, whilst being fully protected, is by changing your IP address, which may also unblock restricted content in certain countries, protects you from DNS leaks, and ensures you will not receive any letter from your ISP (they will be oblivious to your activity), and that is by using a VPN.
A VPN encrypts your connection to the website, file, or service you are accessing, by tunnelling your connection, through a private, encrypted server, which means you can stream with confidence, that your activity is not being tracked. There are many FREE VPN’s available, but we do not recommend using the below video, is a great explanation why.
