Always use a VPN with Kodi on your Android Phone. Here’s why:

Kodi is an open source media player and millions of streamers use it around the world for their binge-watching needs. However, it is not a regulated entity, and Kodi users are susceptible to hacks and cyber attacks. If you are a privacy concerned user who wants to keep their identity and personal information safe from malicious online individuals, you should always use a VPN.

A VPN is a great tool for anonymity. It encrypts all data that is sent and received from your device, making it impossible for anyone to trace back your identity and steal your personal information. In this day and age, the more cautious we are online, the safer we can remain from all cyber malice.
