What is Filelinked?

Filelinked was formerly known as Droid Admin and is an excellent tool for those wanting to access and download media online whether that be Firestick apps, Android apps, photos, videos or music.

Filelinked is great free way for you to share files while also being one of the best resources to obtain new files. The beauty of the app is that Filelinked doesn’t host the files, they are hosted on Dropbox, Telegram and accross the Web. In short, it’s an easy way to connect a user to a batch of file, by using a simple code.

It is also great for maintaining anonymity when combined with using a VPN.

Filelinked is great because it’s free, fast and really easy to use.

What Does Filelinked Do?

Filelinked is used like a file messenger service.

User A has a batch of files of different servers and locations that they want to share with User B.

They use the Filelinked website, create an account and then copy and paste the links of the files that they want to share. You can name them and even provide cover art. Once all the files have been added, they create a unique Filelinked code, which will allow User B to access the files. User A also can send User B a pin code if they set their Filelinked store to require one.

User B then downloads the Filelinked app, they enter the unique URL within the application and then type in the PIN. They can then access and download all the files.

What Platforms Does it Work On?

Filelinked works on all Android devices (phones, tablets, Android TV’s, etc) and Amazon Firesticks.


  • No limits on how many files you can link to or how many files you download
  • Easy to use interface and system
  • PIN means you can protect files for everyone apart from the intended user
  • Plenty of tutorials and guides on how to use them

Should I Use This Filelinked with a VPN?

It depends on what you are downloading from Filelinked. If it is your uncle Bob’s latest update to his travel site app, you are fine not using a VPN. However, any time you might be downloading content in the grey area, such as many streaming apps, it’s always best to be safe and turn on the VPN first. The files are typically hosted on Dropbox and Telegram so you are unlikely to get in trouble without using one, but you never know for certain unless you setup the path.

There are a number of reasons you should always use a VPN:

  • Your Internet Service Provider works actively to prevent users from accessing pirated content. In the UK it’s estimated that 50% of online content may be restricted by ISP’s. You also run the risk of having your browsing history logged and stored for up to a year, as well as the possibility in extreme cases of a fine 
  • VPN’s help you to stay safe online, both from the watchful eyes of your ISP, preventing your traffic from being logged, but also malicious third parties who want to track you or insert malware onto your system
