Why should I use a VPN for Kodi?
To empower your add-ons
Many add-ons are unavailable in certain locations, or have their functionality censored by different networks. ExpressVPN lets you change your virtual location so your add-ons will run smoothly from anywhere.
To prevent ISP logging
Some ISPs may keep logs of your internet activity, including the content you view through Kodi. ExpressVPN encrypts your web traffic so ISPs and other third parties can’t read your traffic.
ExpressVPN also keeps no activity logs and no connection logs for maximum privacy.
For superior leak protection
ExpressVPN’s Network Lock (a.k.a. kill switch) stops all traffic if your device disconnects from the VPN for any reason. This prevents any leaks outside the secure VPN tunnel.
ExpressVPN also runs its own private, zero-knowledge DNS on every server to prevent DNS leaks.
Get access to more content
ExpressVPN can also give you access to thousands of movies and TV shows across tons of streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and many more!
Setup videos and 24/7 support
ExpressVPN has a ton of videos available with Kodi setup instructions for a wide range of devices and platforms, plus a dedicated support team waiting to help you anytime via email or live chat.
What happens if I don’t use a VPN for Kodi?
Without a VPN, ISPs can see and record your internet traffic. This not only includes activity in your web browser, like browsing and search history, but all traffic from any application that uses the internet, including Kodi and any other home media center. Some ISPs have even been known to throttle your connection speed depending on your activity.
With Kodi, some add-ons get their content from torrents, which exposes your IP address to other peers on the network. Without a VPN, the IP address you share will be your true IP address, which can be traced back to you.
What kind of security does ExpressVPN provide for Kodi?
ExpressVPN sets up an encrypted tunnel between your Kodi device and the internet. To your ISP, would-be hackers, and other third parties, your internet activity is encrypted and unreadable. This prevents throttling and keeps your Kodi activity out of the hands of marketers, snoopers, and governments.
ExpressVPN also hides your true IP address and replaces it with a shared IP that cannot be traced back to you. To the rest of the internet, your traffic will appear to be coming from a shared VPN server in a location that you choose.
