We recommend using IPVanish. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. Using IPVanish will hide your IP Address, prevent your ISP from spying on you, make your online presence anonymous, access blocked content from other countries and hide your streaming habits! IPVanish works practically on all Kodi Devices including the Fire Stick.
