What Is Kodi?
Kodi (previously known as XBMC) is home media center software that lets you watch movies, listen to music, play games, and organize photos. Unlike other similar platforms like Apple TV or Chromecast, Kodi is 100% free and open-source.
That makes Kodi extremely customizable. You can change almost any element of the interface, including predefined themes and custom backgrounds, to create your own personalized viewing experience.
Kodi’s active community of users and developers makes it the home media platform of choice for power users. You can take your Kodi experience to the next level by using a VPN to watch Kodi with speed, security, and privacy.
Why 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.
ExpressVPN sets up an encrypted tunnel between your computer and the secure VPN location you choose when you connect. Your true IP address is hidden and replaced with a new one that cannot be traced back to you. To your ISP, would-be hackers, and other third parties, your internet activity is encrypted and unreadable.
So, if you don’t want your internet service provider monitoring or logging the content you download and watch with Kodi, use a VPN to take back your privacy.
