There are many benefits to using Kodi through a VPN provider. If you’re located in a country that blocks certain web sites, a VPN service will allow you to circumvent these censors. You could also use a VPN provider to access content which is only available to people located within a specific country. Using a VPN service will also ensure that your privacy is maintained online, privacy is always a good thing regardless of what you’re doing. It is also quite common for people to use a VPN to access American Netflix and what not.
Once you’ve installed the VPN provider’s app on your computer, tablet, mobile phone or Android TV box, all internet traffic will be routed through whichever country you select, before it reaches you. This effectively anonymizes your internet traffic and allows you to access the internet as if you were actually located in the country of your selection. Please note that free VPN services should be avoided, going with an untrustworthy VPN provider could potentially pose huge security risks.
We don’t claim to be experts on VPN technology, which is why this list is based on TorrentFreak’s top rated VPN providers. TorrentFreak is a file sharing news blog, that among others things is the internet’s leading source of VPN reviews. We’ve also personally tested each of these services with Kodi vigorously.

There are obviously other good VPN providers out there, this list isn’t meant to say that others aren’t good, it’s just that these are the ones we use and recommend. All we’re going to say is that since all of your data will flow through your VPN provider’s servers, make sure it’s one you can trust.
