Hi @pebutzow, welcome to Trend Micro Community! 

To answer your question, yes, we have Mobile Security for Android can also protect your Kindle Fire OS! You can refer to the link below for detailed:
Mobile Security for Android Smartphones and Tablets

However we've checked your account information, your current licese is  Internet Security. I'm afraid that Internet Security provides advanced online protection only for PC.

If you will like to protect your Kindle Fire OS with Trend Micro Security, here is our recommendation: 
1. Purchasing Mobile Security for Android Smartphones and Tablets 
2. Upgrading your subscription to Maximum Security when the current license expired.

The key difference between Internet Security and Maximum Security is that Maximum Security includes the following key features below in addition to Internet Security:
  • Online storage scan of Microsoft OneDrive
  • Password Manager for online accounts & Secure browser for safe online banking
  • Mac protection
  • Mobile security protection for Android & iOS &Kindle
  • Here's for your reference. http://www.trendmicro.com/us/home/products/software/
Please let me know if this answer meets your needs.

Linda, I'm finally ready to do something about security for my Kindle and our new smartphones. I'm a little confused with your reply, though.
Is there a reason I can't upgrade my current subscription right now instead of purchasing another product now and upgrading later? It seems to me it would be more sensible to just insatll one time instead of installing one product then replacing it in a few months.
Thanks Paul B

Hi Paul, sorry for the confusion.

Let me clarify this for you. Since Internet Security and Maximum Security are two different product editions, their license period cannot be combined. If you renew your Internet Security before your expiry date, your subscription will be automatically extended to the number of years purchased but it will not change product edition. 

If you want to upgrade your subscription to Maximum Security when the current license expired, we suggest disabling Auto-Renewal by the following step first.
Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Auto-Renew - refer to "Disabling or Canceling Auto Renewal"

Then upgrade (purchase) a new license of Maximum Security
Mobile Security for Android Smartphones and Tablets - "Compare Versions"

If you do not want to purchase a new Maximum Security license, you can optionally purchase a 1 year Mobile Security for Android license for your Kindle Fire OS as I mentioned last time!

Hope this answers your question. Thank you!
