The following step-by-step tutorial will show you How to Install Brave Browser on Firestick/Fire TV for Ad-Free YouTube & more.
Brave Browser is a secure, private browser application that automatically blocks ads and website trackers for safe browsing.
There are various apps available for this browser, however, there is currently no option for installation from the Amazon App Store.
Luckily, we can sideload this application for use on a Firestick or Fire TV in just a few simple steps.
Sideloading apps on a Firestick device is what many refer to as “jailbreaking”.
Jailbreaking your Firestick or Fire TV will allow you to access thousands of applications not available in the Amazon App Store.
This includes Free Streaming Apps for Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, and more.
There are tons of reasons users may want to install a Web Browser on Firestick.
Many people are turning to private Browser options in conjunction with a VPN to ensure their online privacy and security.
Most importantly, Brave Browser BLOCKS ADS ON YOUTUBE for a completely ad-free experience.
This is a great alternative to SmartTubeNext which is an ad-free YouTube app for Firestick devices.
While many opt for SmartTubeNext on streaming devices, using Brave will allow you to use the official YouTube without advertisements.
In the guide below, we provide step-by-step instructions to install and use Brave Browser on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max.
However, these instructions will also work for any variation of Firestick as well as Android TV Boxes such as NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL, and more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Users may find the orientation for this app is a bit off. However, we have noticed that it typically auto-adjusts to match the orientation of the Amazon Firestick.
If you continue to experience issues, we suggest installing the Set Orientation Tool which should eliminate this problem.
In order to use Brave Browser on Firestick, you will likely need Mouse Toggle for navigation.
This is available for Fire TV devices within the TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer.
