Don’t Risk It – Use VPN

Due to the fact that Quasar is based on P2P torrenting, your public IP address will be added to a torrent swarm whenever you’re streaming a video via this particular Kodi addon. That means that your ISP and copyright groups can actually monitor which files you are watching because anybody can access that torrent swarm. In order to avoid getting copyright infringement and DMCA notices when using Quasar, you have to hide your IP address on Kodi. This can be achieved by using a VPN service. Here are some of the benefits of using VPN with Kodi.

  • Unblock Geo-restricted Kodi Add-ons: There are a lot of Kodi addons that you can only use in certain regions such as FreeView, BBC iPlayer, Channel 4, and ITV addons. With VPN you can bypass regional restrictions.
  • Bypass ISP Throttling: Ever noticed that your Internet speed is decent if you are browsing websites but suddenly drops when you are watching videos online? If that is the case, your ISP is probably throttling your Internet speed. Using VPN basically allows you to avoid that from happening.
  • Ultimate Privacy: Your ISP and copyright trolls will not be able to eavesdrop on what movies you are streaming or files you are downloading.
  • VPN Applications: You don’t have to be a tech-freak to setup a VPN connection thanks to user-friendly VPN apps on PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and FireStick.

From personal experience, ExpressVPN is the best VPN service you can use with Kodi. They have optimized their VPN apps to work better with Kodi add-ons and have a no-logs policy. Simply sign up with IPVanish. Then download their app to the same device you use Kodi on. Launch the VPN app and connect to a VPN server from within.
