How To Install FileLinked on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV Box (2022)

FileLinked is an app that provides access to many apps and games not available on the Amazon Appstore or Google Play Store. With FileLinked, you can install multiple apps at once using codes. This makes it easy to customize your Fire TV device.

However, FileLinked is not without risks. Some of the apps available through it may contain malware or illegal content. To stay safe, only install apps from reputable sources.

This tutorial will show you how to install FileLinked on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV boxes. We’ll also cover how to use FileLinked and answer common questions about it.

How FileLinked Works

FileLinked allows you to easily install apps by entering numeric codes associated with app repositories.Developers can create their own FileLinked codes to share their apps.

Each code leads to a repository containing various apps and APK files. By entering a code, you can install all the apps from that repository in just a few clicks.

Some benefits of FileLinked include:

  • Access to apps not on official app stores
  • Simultaneous installation of multiple apps
  • Faster installation compared to manual APK sideloading
  • Easy customization of your device

However, as mentioned earlier, you should be cautious about the safety of apps installed from FileLinked. Stick to codes from known reputable sources.

Is FileLinked Legal and Safe?

The FileLinked app itself is perfectly legal. However, some of the content available through it may violate copyright laws or contain malware.

You should only use codes and install apps from trustworthy sources. Avoid “free” movies, shows, and live sports apps, as these often contain illegal streams or malware.

Stick to installing mainstream apps like Kodi, media players, emulators, VPNs, etc. from reputable developers. As long as you’re careful about what you install, FileLinked can be used safely.

To install FileLinked on your device, you will need:
