How to install Unlinked on FireStick [FileLinked Alternative]

Unlinked on FireStick

Today, you will learn to install Unlinked on FireStick. I will also tell you how you can sideload third-party apps using Unlinked. Instructions provided here will work for the complete range of Amazon Fire TV and Android-powered devices.

A few weeks ago, FileLinked went offline due to unknown reasons. To fill this gap, many FileLinked clones have hit the market. FileSynced and AppLinked are the best FileLinked alternatives so far, but now we have a new entrant called Unlinked.

Just like FileLinked, Unlinked allows users to create their own Unlinked codes, which are labeled as libraries.

These libraries have some of the Best FireStick Apps for quick and easy installation. Right now, there are not many codes available for Unlinked as it is still new.

If you are looking for Unlinked codes, check our Best Unlinked Codes guide. We keep updating this guide as more and more codes become available for users.

If Unlinked is not working for you, please visit our Unlinked Not Working Troubleshooting Guide here.
