How to Install and Use FileLinked on FireStick

I’ll show you how to install and use FileLinked on your FireStick in this guide. I’ll also explain how to use this app to sign up for the FileLinked service and download the files. All Amazon Fire TV models, including the Fire TV Cube, Firestick Lite, and Fire Stick 4K, will work with the same guide.

DroidAdmin was the previous name for FileLinked. It’s a file-sharing app that’s also a great side-loading tool for Amazon FireStick and other Android devices. FileLinked can be used to share a variety of files, including videos, photos, music, and APK files. You can be a file uploader, a file user, or a combination of the two.

For example, if you’re on vacation and want to share your photos with friends or family privately, you can upload the files, create a code, and share the code with them. Those who have your code can download the FileLinked app for Android, enter it, and access or download the files.

FileLinked could be very useful if you want to sideload apps onto your FireStick device. Simply obtain the Filelinked codes from the uploader and enter them into your FileLinked app. If you are an uploader (like me), on the other hand, you can share the code with your users (like you) and allow them to easily download the files.

This guide will provide you with all the information and instructions you need to get started with FileLinked, whether you’re an uploader or a user. Continue reading!

Users of the FireStick, take note!

Governments and internet service providers keep a close eye on your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could land you in hot water. Your IP address,, is currently visible to everyone. I strongly advise you to get the best FireStick VPN to hide your IP address and stream your favorite shows safely.

ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN on the market, is what I use. It’s not only simple to set up on any device, but it also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, you can always get a refund if you’re not completely satisfied. On top of that, ExpressVPN is currently offering three extra months for free on their annual plan!

Here are some of the reasons why you should always use a VPN.


How to Install the FileLinked on FireStick

To install any third-party apps on your FireStick, I recommend using one of two apps:


  • Downloader
  • ES File Explorer

Both of these apps are available on the Amazon Store, and installing them on a FireStick takes only a few minutes. I’ll walk you through the installation process one by one, using both apps. You can choose between the two options.

The most useful side-loading app for FireStick is Downloader. It is available for download from the Amazon Store.

Another popular app for sideloading apps on FireStick and other Android devices is ES File Explorer. ES Explorer, on the other hand, isn’t just a sideloader. It’s also a fantastic file manager.

After that, install FileLinked on your FireStick using ES File Explorer by following the steps below:

1. Open the ES File Explorer application.


2. Scroll down to Downloader on the right side of ES File Explorer’s home screen, where you’ll see a bunch of icons.

Note: After installing the app, I recommend deleting the FileLinked APK. This will allow you to save some space. On the left side of ES File Explorer, click the Local dropdown menu, then click Home (the second one on the dropdown list). Now open the Download folder on the right. The APK file can be found here. Remove it.
