This post will point you in the proper direction if you want to install VPN on Kodi. Most Internet service providers are starting to block access to many Kodi addons, builds, and wizards. By installing a VPN on your Kodi box, you will enjoy unlimited access to these blocked Kodi resources.
Internet providers are also starting to throttle download speeds for various Kodi addons and running a VPN service will usually help with buffering as well.
Last and certainly not least, many government agencies are starting to reprimand those who are using various Kodi addons, that provide free movies, tv shows, live feeds, etc. If you are one of those people, you should protect yourself with a VPN on your Kodi box.
A VPN or virtual private network will encrypt your traffic and provide you with a new IP address, which will hide your streaming activity from your Internet Service provider. Your connection to the Internet will become anonymous, which will provide you with the privacy that you deserve.
Some of you may have received threatening letters from your Internet service provider, claiming that you have downloaded or streamed media that has a copyright. They may even tell you that you may be contacted by the authorities for copyright infringement. By installing a VPN on Kodi, you will not need to worry about receiving these letters anymore from your ISP.
Unfortunately, there is no good Kodi addon that allows you to setup a VPN unless you are running OpenELEC which is a branch of the popular media application. OpenELEC has a Kodi addon that allows you to setup a VPN service directly within Kodi. Most people want to run the main Kodi branch and also use a VPN to protect themselves so OpenELEC is usually not an attractive option and that is the reason for this guide.
The easiest way to hide your IP address when using Kodi is by simply installing a VPN service onto the streaming device that you are currently using.
I have created numerous tutorials that will walk you through the step-by-step details on how to install a VPN on the following Kodi boxes.

If you are running Kodi on your computer such as Windows, Mac, or Linux, most VPN services provide an application that you can download and install onto your system. After you install the application, you simply input your VPN username and password into the login area.
Keep in mind that you can also use your VPN service on your other Internet connected devices that you frequently use. Do you travel? If yes, you should NEVER connect to a public wifi hotspot unless you are running a VPN service.
My VPN service of choice is IPVanish as they provide the fastest download speeds among the various VPN providers that I have reviewed. The service works very well on all Kodi boxes, which isn’t the case for most VPN providers.
