Alluc has been an extremely desirable add-on in the Kodi streaming community for almost a decade. Some of you must have already used it and those who haven’t are missing out a lot of ‘fun’ from Kodi.

What’s Alluc Addon

Alluc is not exactly a ‘streaming service’ itself and doesn’t host any of its own content. It is a website that offers free streaming links from other sources. As of today, Alluc boasts tons of thousands of movies and TV shows (new and old), all from other streaming sites. While you may think that it could be potentially dangerous to follow links from unknown sources, Alluc developers make sure to remove any dead or malicious links.

Is it Legal to use Alluc Addon?

Since streaming and legality are always subjected to complexity; thus, it’s a rather grey area than black or white. In many countries downloading or hosting content that the viewer doesn’t have rights to is illegal. But since Alluc doesn’t host any of its own content and serves as a directory of links redirecting to other sites instead, it’s safe to assume that Alluc is legal.
Legal aspects also depend upon where you live. For instance, in most countries, it is legal to watch content but downloading or hosting isn’t. While in some regions like EU, streaming content from unofficial sources itself is prohibited.

Is Alluc Safe to Use?

As discussed above, all links posted on Alluc are first inspected by the developers for any malware to eliminate or at the very least, minimize all security risks. However, the security concerns with Alluc being a third-party addon are still there. So if you’re conscious about your data and privacy, you may resort to a useful Kodi VPN to enjoy a safe and private streaming experience.
