How to Install NordVPN on Kodi

When you want to use Kodi to access content that is blocked in your country, the first thing that you will need to do is to install NordVPN on your device. If you are new to Kodi, this tutorial will help you get the most from your device and ensure that your personal details are kept private.

Step one: Install the VPN provider’s App

The first step in connecting to the VPN is to install the app that is dedicated to the platform. On Roku, you will find the NordVPN app in the Store section of the software. You will then need to log in with your email and password to continue.

On iOS and Android, you will find the NordVPN app in the Google Play Store or the App Store, respectively. Once you have installed the app, you can set it up to connect to a server near you.

Step two: Select a server

Now that you have the app installed, you can browse to the VPN’s settings page in the main menu of Kodi. From here, you can select a server to connect to based on your location, port, protocol, and encryption method. If you are not sure which option to choose, pick the USA server as a starting point.

NordVPN also offers a money-back guarantee if you meet the criteria, so if you are unsure which server to choose, you can get a free trial or set up a free account to try out the service.

Step three: Configure your account

After you have connected to a VPN server, you will see the IP address of the server in the status bar at the top of your screen. From here, you can click VPN Status to view additional information about your connection, such as the amount of data transferred, the ping time, and whether the connection was over VPN or via direct connect.

If you would like to keep your connection private, you can generate a password and save it in the app (or otherwise configure the app to connect with PIN protection). You can then click the Settings button to view the server’s endpoint (URL) and login information. If you do not want to use a PIN for authentication, you can change the password throughout the app using the Login Button.

Step four: Activate your account

Once you have generated a password, you can activate your account by clicking the Activate button. You will then be prompted to enter your email address and password to confirm that you are a real person and not a bot or spider (also known as a “robot”). Once you have activated your account, you can browse to the main menu of Kodi and select the VPN client. You can then connect to a VPN server based on your preference (location, port, protocol, and encryption method) and authenticate using your email address and password.

Bonus step: Use a bookmark

If you are using a mobile device and have limited battery life, you can set up a bookmark to easily access the VPN settings page by just clicking the bookmark icon in the navigation bar. You can then select a server to connect to based on your location, port, protocol, and encryption method.

How does NordVPN work?

NordVPN is one of the most trusted VPN providers because it offers a no‐questions‐asked 90‐day money‐back guarantee. If you meet the requirements, you can get a free trial or set up a free account to test the service before you make a purchase. This guarantee makes NordVPN one of the most popular VPN services for legal users who want to stay secure while surfing the web. This is because most VPN services block access to specific websites based on your IP address, the country you are in, and/or the region within that country that you reside in. As a result, if you are in the USA, for example, you will see a lot of ads from retail websites that are not safe for work or school, such as Reddit or The New York Times. With NordVPN, you will not be blocked from these websites.

What is Reddit?

If you visit Reddit on a device connected to a VPN, you will see that the platform is blocked by default. This is because Reddit isn’t safe for work or school. However, if you are logged in with your NordVPN account, you will see that the platform is accessible throughout the site.

Does VPN protect me from malware and virus?

Any virus or malware attempting to infect your device while you are connected to the internet via a VPN will be blocked by the virus defense mechanism in your device’s kernel. If you are still concerned that you may be exposed to a malicious code while connected to a VPN, you can additional protection by installing a firmware update for your device. This will force all of your apps to update to the latest version (which usually comes with a bugfixing update).

Is a VPN necessary to use Kodi?

Most people on the Internet use a vpn to access restrictive content that is blocked in their country. However, if you do not need to access blocked content, you do not need a VPN to use Kodi. If you are in the UK for example, you will not see any difference because all of the websites and apps you use are already available in the UK App Store or Google Play Store.
