SafeKodi Features & Details

SafeKodi was formed by a group of researchers at Northwestern University and Brave Inc. The project aims to inform Kodi users about addons that contain potential malicious content.

This can be a virus, malware of some sort, or unwanted ads. Their website states the following:

SafeKodi’s database is continuously updated with de-Kodi, a Kodi crawler which is capable of discovering and testing large cross-sections of Kodi’s decentralized ecosystem at tunable levels of depth and breadth. With de-Kodi, we discovered and tested over 9,000 distinct Kodi addons..

For complete safety and privacy when using Kodi, we strongly recommend a VPN in conjunction with SafeKodi.

This will ensure your activity is not visible to your ISP or anyone else.
