This tutorial will show you how to set up ExpressVPN on your Kindle Fire with the L2TP/IPsec protocol.
Not all ExpressVPN locations may be available for manually configured connections. To use the full list of VPN locations, use the app setup.

To set up ExpressVPN manually, you will first need to obtain your ExpressVPN credentials for the manual configuration.
On your device, go to the ExpressVPN setup page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and tap Sign In.
Enter the verification code sent to your email.
This will show you your username, password, and a list of server addresses around the world.
