Install the App

  1. On your Fire tablet, open the Silk Browser and visit the download link for the Libby APK (the link must be opened on your Kindle Fire to work).
  2. You may get warnings saying that the Silk Browser needs more access on your device or that this kind of file should be avoided. We test our file to make sure it’s safe, so you can safely dismiss these messages for our Libby APK.
  3. Tap “OK,” “Allow,” or “Continue” to proceed. (The wording of the warnings may vary.)
  4. Once the file downloads, tap “Open.” (If you’re unable to open the file from this prompt, locate the file in your downloads folder and tap to open.)
  5. If you get a message saying your device is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source, tap Settings and toggle “Allow from this source” on. Note: We recommend turning this setting off after installing the Libby app. This will prevent you from accidentally downloading unsafe files in the future.
  6. Tap the “Back” button in the top-left corner, then tap “Install.”
  7. Once the app is finished installing, tap “Open” to start using Libby!
