There are hundreds of add-ons for Kodi, but due to geographical restrictions, many users are unable to use the add-ons that they download. With a VPN, however, digital borders disappear, making all of the Kodi add-ons accessible from anywhere. A VPN from IPVanish establishes a protected internet environment, void of ISP surveillance and invasive ad trackers. With IPVanish VPN, you have the ability to mask your IP address, the internet address issued by your ISP to identify your personal web activity . We strongly suggest using a trusted VPN service like IPVanish
