Will Rose or Jessica be defeated in this intense face-off match? Tune in Saturday, May 11, 2019, for the results. You can watch this match on Kodi and Android devices, but you need to use a VPN.

Why Is a VPN Needed While Using Kodi?

Having security gives you peace of mind, especially when you’re browsing the internet. When you think of internet security, you may think of anti-virus software. Anti-virus software helps prevent viruses from infecting your hard drive and destroying your files. Instead of focusing on virus threats, VPNs protect your personal information, which helps prevent identity theft and other instances of fraud.

What Does a VPN Do?

VPNs hide information people can use to track your location and gain access to your personal files and information. VPNs hide your internet browser history. With a hidden browser history, no one can view the sites you visit. This also means third-party sites cannot target you with ads. A VPN protects your IP address and location. Your IP address can be used to access your internet search history. Your location can be used to determine where you conducted internet searches. Without a VPN, you have no privacy.

The Benefits of Masking Your IP Address

Geo-Restricted Access

Masking your IP address is beneficial for many different reasons. Masking your IP address gives you access to geo-restricted content. This content is often restricted to certain countries, which means you are only granted access if you live in that country. With a VPN, this type of content is no longer restricted.

Censorship and Surveillance

Masking your IP address by using a VPN allows you to bypass surveillance and censorship. This means the government will have difficulty monitoring how you spend your time on the internet.

Use of Public Wi-Fi

Like many people, you may be tempted to use public Wi-Fi when it becomes available. Public Wi-Fi connections are not encrypted, which means they are not secure. If you have a VPN enabled on your device, you can browse the internet without worrying about your digital identity being discovered or cyber threats.

Maintaining a Private Browsing History

Privacy is what VPNs are about. If you don’t want people, such as the government, employers, your internet service provider, ISP, checking out what you’re doing, you need to use a VPN whenever you use any electronic devices. Whether you’re researching something for a personal matter or want the freedom to browse whatever you want without worrying about peeping Toms, you need a VPN to protect the information on your internet browser.

Protecting More Than One Device

You can use a VPN across a variety of devices, including laptops, tablets, desktops, and cell phones. Regardless of which device you decide to use, your information will always be protected.


Before you continue reading, understand the significantly higher risks of streaming online today. In fact, this applies to any device online as well as your smartphone or tablet. 

Not too long ago users online enjoyed a certain degree of anonymity due to the Net Neutrality laws. However, in 2018, these laws were repealed. This means your own Internet Service Provider can legally sell your personal data (such as health records, security information, and browsing history).

In addition, they can monitor your online traffic to ensure that you are in compliance with their “fair use” policy. Streaming is generally quite bandwidth heavy and you’ll find ISPs often buffer user traffic which drastically impacts the streams and makes them unwatchable.

After you install a streaming app on your device or even if you’ve already installed one – make sure you secure your streaming data with a no-logging VPN like IPVanish. This is your only protection and it’s worth the nominal investment.
