HOW TO EASILY TURN ON UNKNOWN SOURCES ON MULTIPLE DEVICES | SHORT TUTORIALS | 2020

This is a really short video showing you how to turn on unknown sources on a variety of devices so that you can allow the installation of 3rd party applications.

Check out the video above for a step-by-step video guide or below for some helpful links.

1. Select Settings from the home-screen of your Fire device

2. Select Device or MyFireTV (This maybe different depending on which device you are using)

3. Select About

4. Within About you will find your device name & then on the left hand side (highlighted in red below) is your Fire TV Home Version. The beginning number is your Fire OS (in this example mine would be 6)

1. Select Settings from the home-screen of your Fire device

2. Select Device or MyFireTV (This maybe different depending on which device you are using)

3. Select Developer Options

4. If Apps from Unknown Sources is OFF, select it & turn it ON

5. Select Turn On to confirm

Your Firestick is now setup to allow installations of third-party apps. You will never have to do this process again.

With FireOS 7 you shouldn’t have to follow the tutorial below. When you want to install third-party apps form another app (for example Downloader) you should receive the following message on screen & then skip to step 4. If you are still experiencing issues try following the tutorial from step 1 below.

3. Select Developer Options

Your Firestick is now setup to allow installations of third-party apps from this particular app.

2. Within Settings scroll down, find & select Apps

3. Select the 3 dots from the top right of the screen

4. Select Special access

5. Scroll down & select Install unknown apps

6. Find & select the app that you want to install from (in most cases you will be looking for an app that you are installing apps from. For example Filelinked or Downloader)
