How To Install And Setup IPVanish VPN On LibreELEC


IPVanish is one of the best VPN service that you can install on LibreELEC and get access to all Geo blocked content. VPN makes sure that you are on a secure and a private connection so you can enjoy online entertainment fully without any restrictions. You can get access to all geo blocked content so where ever you are, you can access content worldwide. A VPN also makes it possible that Kodi streams run smoothly because a lot of Kodi streams are blocked by ISP (internet service providers) so when a VPN is running on your device it makes you fully anonymous.

If you plan on streaming content via any of the Kodi addons we recommend using a VPN. A VPN will anonymize your online activity, protect you from spying ISPs, and allow you access to geo-blocked add-ons and content.

We personally use IPVanish VPN and highly recommend it. You can sign up for IPVanish VPN here or if you want to know more about why to use a VPN with Kodi click here
