Syncler – How to Use and Install

In this guide we will discuss what Syncler is as well as how to use and install it. Syncler can be installed on almost any device e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, PC and more. However, this app cannot be installed from the Google Play or Amazon app store. In order to install it, it must be sideloaded.

The Amazon Firestick is certainly the most popular streaming device on the market right now due to its low price and ability to jailbreak it with just a few simple tweaks. It’s a perfect streaming device for beginners as well advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

What is Syncler?

Syncler is a video-on demand app that lets you stream the latest movies and TV shows for free but with adverts. It appears to be a clone of the TV Zion app that shut down in September 2020. The app is without a doubt very easy to install with it’s own installer. You can sideload Syncler onto almost any Android streaming device as well as all Fire TV devices.

How Does Syncler Work?

Syncler on it’s own is basically just a browser for movies and TV shows. It does not scrape or provide any streaming links. Unlike other unofficial free streaming apps, users must install provider packages to stream content directly in the app. It also works with Real Debrid. Real Debrid, to clarify, is a premium service that searches for premium quality links. Overall, this provides many more links in buffer free and high quality, up to 4K in resolution.

This app is also compatible with Trakt. This is a great tool in order to synchronise all of your favourite movies, shows, watchlists and more across multiple devices and applications. With Trakt, you can always keep on top of what you’re watching and what’s more, never miss an episode!

Is Syncler Legal?

Yes. This app does not provide any links and is in essence just a browser for movies and TV shows. It is therefore 100% legal to install and use. It’s even available in the Google Play Store. However, to use it, you must install provider packages from 3rd party sources. It is unlikely that the majority of links scraped from these providers hold the proper licencing for distributing the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming copyrighted content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this app with a VPN


Your online activity is open to threats and snooping from your ISP, hackers, or governments. For that reason, a VPN can help to protect and defend you against any attacks. Using a VPN can also unblock access to the internet in countries where the internet is censored and can bypass other geographical restrictions.

In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.

Legal Copyright Disclaimer: As has been noted, streaming copyrighted content is unlawful and could get you into legal trouble. On account of this, we do not condone the streaming of copyrighted content. Therefore, check your local laws for streaming content online before doing so.

How to Install the Syncler Installer
