Kodi is a popular media center application used by millions of people all around the world. It is compatible with various devices such as Firestick, Roku, Android, and more. Kodi lets you access different kinds of media including movies, TV shows, documentaries, sports, cartoons, anime, and much more. To stream these kinds of media, you must install addons on your Kodi app. Some of the addons are officially supported and you can download them within the app. Whereas, to get some addons you need to access third-party sources. To download those third-party addons, you need to enable a feature called Unknown Sources. Without enabling unknown Sources on Kodi, you can’t install the addon from third-party sources. In this article, let’s look at the steps to enable Unknown Sources on Kodi.

Note: Kodi users must remember the fact that their IP and online activities are visible to the ISPs and Government while using Kodi. To avoid this, you must use a trusted VPN service to mask your internet activities.
