If you’ve been watching movies, TV shows and sports illegally on Kodi (check out my Kodi setup guide), you are probably due a warning letter in the post from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
ISP’s in the UK such as Sky, Virgin Media, BT and Talk Talk etc are actively monitoring what people are watching online.
If they see you are watching illegal streams of live sports or movies using Kodi plugins such as Exodus, Sports Devil, SALTS, Alluc and Pro Sports, you’ll probably be getting an nasty letter through the post.
You may be asking yourself how they know your watching illegal streams?
By using these plugins on your Android box, Fire TV, PC or Mac, you are leaving yourself vulnerable as your IP address is visible for anyone to see online and you will probably be issued a warning letter asking that you cease and desist.
There are two ways you can protect yourself,
- Stop using Kodi altogether.
- Use a VPN to hide your IP and protect your online privacy.
Using a VPN To Protect Your Privacy
If you want to continue to use Kodi, you will need to use a virtual private network, or VPN for short.
Don’t worry, this is very easy to setup 🙂
- Head over to IPVarnish and sign up for an account.
- Download and install the VPN app on the same device you are using Kodi on.
- Launch the VPN application and connect to a VPN server.
That’s it! You can now use Kodi anonymously. Neither your ISP nor copyright protection groups can track what you are doing online once you’re connect to a IPVarnish server.
