ATTENTION: Before using Kodi, users must remember the fact that your IP and online activities are visible to the ISPs and Government while using Kodi. If you stream copyrighted content through Kodi, you will end up in facing some serious legal issues. To avoid this, you must use a trusted VPN service to mask your internet activities from the ISPs, hackers, Government and many more. On the other hand, VPN also helps you to access the geo-restricted media with ease. We recommend our users to purchase and use NordVPN on their device.
