Having a decent way to stream content to your Television is very crucial now more than ever. With several streaming services now available, and the ever-increasing streaming-only shows we are currently getting, being able to view original content and evergreen content is surely a vital part of entertainment.
If you have never owned a streaming device, Amazon’s Fire Stick is what I will recommend without even thinking about it. At its $29 price for the entry-level model, it is a great choice for all, and Prime shipping will have it delivered to your home as soon as possible.
However, since it is under the Amazon umbrella, as soon as you set up your Fire Stick, the install application will insist that you share your Amazon account information. For several users, it is no issue. In fact, it simplifies the process of integrating your Fire TV Stick with your Amazon Prime Video account.
But if you would wish to safeguard your privacy while using your Fire TV Stick, you will need to know how you can set yours up without linking your personal Amazon account. See How To Use Amazon Fire TV Stick Without Registration Of Amazon Account:

Buying A Fire Stick:
Be aware that if you purchase your Fire Stick from Amazon using a regular Amazon account, it will arrive preloaded with your Amazon account credentials. Meaning, it is wiser to buy a used Fire Stick from platforms like eBay or Craigslist, or get one via Amazon on a second account.
You can also deregister an Amazon account, which gets rid of your account from the device altogether. For some users, this might still appear like an invasion of privacy, however, if you are that bothered about Amazon knowing what you do with the device, it is best to not purchase a Fire Stick at all.
The Registration Process:
After turning on your Fire TV Stick, it hard-boots into a setup screen. There, you will be prompted to type in the details of an Amazon account in order to continue with enabling the device and gaining access to its feature set.
If you do not wish for Amazon to know that you are the owner of the specific Fire TV Stick, then you have 2 basic options:
- Get the Fire TV Stick registered using your personal account, then de-register it in future after you’ve installed another method of accessing content.
- Sign up for the Fire TV Stick via a throwaway account.
Both options should help you ensure your data and activity are kept private, therefore choose the option you want to go for.
