How to choose a VPN for Kodi?
What device are you using to run Kodi?
The best option is almost always a VPN that offers a custom app for the device you are using to run Kodi. While all major VPN providers have apps for the main platforms, not everyone has a Fire TV app for example. Failing that, look for easy-to-understand step-by-step guides on how to use a VPN with your preferred device and direct downloads of APK files for use with Android-based Kodi boxes.
Does the VPN provider have the most privacy-friendly policies?
Look for a VPN that’s as close as possible to zero logs. While no VPN on our site will ever log your activity, many will capture some level of usage data to allow them to maintain peak performance on their networks. Best case scenario then is a VPN that does not log your IP address at all, nor that of your specific VPN server. Similarly, look for limitation of timestamps to collection of dates only rather than specific times. Finally, you want a VPN incorporated beyond the reach of the US and EU jurisdictions.
How fast is the VPN in your favorite locations?
You need reliably fast download speeds and low ping to watch buffer-free ultra high-definition video streams on Kodi.
Does it have servers in the locations you need?
The nearer the VPN server to your physical location, the better the performance. More servers tends to mean less congestion and improved speeds but this is not always the case.
Will it work with your favorite app?
Do you watch Netflix or BBC iPlayer? Not every VPN will work with these apps.
