Please click here to signup to IPVanish through our affiliate link. VPN providers attract Kodi users for two main purposes: privacy protection and circumventing geo-blocking. IPVanish has recently been selected as our VPN service of choice, due in part to the fact that they are the only top VPN provider with native Amazon Fire TV support. The IPVanish VPN app can therefore be installed to any Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick directly from the Amazon App Store. They also offer complete Android TV support for owners of other Kodi boxes. The top notch Amazon Fire TV app makes IPVanish one of the best VPN choices for Kodi users no matter where they’re living.
VPN services function by routing your traffic through servers that are located in various countries around the world. When you’re connected to a VPN provider, your internet traffic will appear to be originating from the country which are you connected from. This gives you the ability to unblock content that is only accessible from certain geographical locations. At the same time, if you’re in a country that blocks access to certain internet web sites (the United Kingdom or China as an example), a VPN service will allow you to bypass the country-wide firewall. Lastly, if you’re using any form of P2P like torrents or AceStream/Sopcast, an IPVanish VPN will ensure that you don’t receive any nasty letters in the mail.
