In addition to a reliable, private no-logs policy, for Kodi you’ll want a VPN which offers consistently fast download speeds and allows P2P traffic on the majority of its servers.
Beyond this, you will need to make sure it features a native app for your chosen platform. If this is PC or Android you’ll have lots of options, but Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Linux operating systems are more limited.
Most VPNs will work with Kodi, but very few are actively maintained to be fully compatible.
Our favourite VPN for Kodi is IPVanish – especially on Amazon Fire TV Stick. Many VPNs are compatible with Kodi, but IPVanish is one of the few we’ve seen with an active focus on Kodi.

How Do I Use a VPN with Kodi?
How you use a VPN with Kodi depends very much on the device you are using. There are as many methods of setting up a VPN with Kodi as there are devices which can run Kodi – in other words, a lot.
In general we do not recommend running your VPN within Kodi – as this can be difficult and limits the protection on offer from your VPN.
For some devices you only need to download Kodi and your VPN from the appropriate App Store and you will be ready to go, but others are much more involved.
Scroll down the page or use Ctrl+F (on Windows) or Cmd+F (on Mac) to find detailed instructions for your device of choice.
