The Kindle Fire HD (2nd Generation) and Kindle Fire HDX that runs on OS4 supports VPN via PPTP and L2TP protocols. The instruction below will guide you on how to connect to our VPN service via the L2TP protocol.
Note: Amazon has removed the option to setup VPN directly on Kindle Fire devices from OS5 onwards. If you are on OS5 and above, you can still setup the VPN service via our MPN VPN Manager App following the guide here: MPN VPN Manager App for Kindle Fire
