To enable ADB debugging or install apps from outside the official Amazon Appstore, you’ll have to unhide your Amazon Fire TV’s “Developer Options” menu. We’ll show you how to reveal this menu on your device so you can then use it.

Prior to June 2022, Amazon kept the Developer Options menu visible by default. It’s now hidden after Amazon pushed a software update that hides the menu. You can still activate the menu by selecting an option on your device. Here’s how.

1. Select FireStick Settings
