Setting up your Kindle to connect to My Private Network’s VPN should take just a few minutes using the PPTP protocol. Please note that your device needs to be connected to the Internet and able to browse the web before moving on with the instructions below. These instructions were written for Kindle Fire HD (2nd generation) and Kindle Fire HDX that runs on OS4.

Unfortunately if you’re using the newer OS5 version of Kindle, Amazon has removed the option to setup a VPN directly on your device. You’ll need to setup the VPN using our Kindle VPN Manager App instead in the link here:

Any Problems?


Unfortunately, it does not always go to plan! If it does not connect, please try rebooting your Internet router (if you are using one) and also completely power off your device and then switch it back on.


Failing that, you can try connecting to our service via our L2TP protocol or via our VPN Manager App that runs on SSL OpenVPN protocol. We have prepared some instructions which will guide you on how to set these up, they can be found on the following links:
