If you love watching movies, sports, TV shows, or just streaming your own content from a local hard drive, you've probably downloaded Kodi. It's the best streaming software, and because it's free and open source, Kodi can adapt it to your every need.

But there is a way to make Kodi even better, and that is by using a virtual private network (VPN). Get one and it will make your Kodi experience safer and possibly faster too.



Interested? Read on to find out the best VPNs for Kodi in 2022.

What is a VPN?

When you connect to the Internet, your computer is assigned an IP address that tells websites which country you are connecting from. This information may result in a site being blocked on content considered inaccessible in your region.

A VPN circumvents this by acting as a virtual trapdoor, essentially making it seem like you're connected from an entirely different part of the world. The result? Your original identity is masked, and you can access geo-locked services that you otherwise couldn't, such as Hulu, HBO Go, or American Netflix.

There are several VPNs out there right now, so to keep things simple, we've put together a shortlist of VPNs we recommend when using Kodi. We'll also update this page with more VPNs in the future, so check back regularly.


The 4 Best VPNs to Use with Kodi

1. CyberGhost VPN (from Free)

CyberGhost has quickly become a well-known VPN service, and after using it for a short time, it's easy to see why. Simply put, CyberGhost is one of the easiest VPNs to use and lets you start a VPN-enabled browser session with just one click. Like other paid VPNs on the market, CyberGhost also does not store details of your connection activity. CyberGhost can also be used for free, which means it's a great way to try out the service to see if you want a VPN in the first place. The only limitation of the free tier is your connection speed and the lack of free slots available on the networks if they are particularly busy. You can currently get CyberGhost on a Ā£4 PAYG basis.

Limited offer: 3 months FREE!

2. NordVPN ($3/month)

NordVPN is currently one of the strongest VPNs you can get. Backed by 695 global server locations in 54 different countries, NordVPN offers excellent coverage allowing you to connect to and from just about anywhere in the world. Plus, NordVPN's software is relatively simple, and like other VPNs, it doesn't log or store your connection details. Finally, just like the other VPNs mentioned here, NordVPN uses a kill switch that shuts down your entire connection if your VPN goes down. This means that there is no way your real IP information can be leaked. At the time of writing, you can get NordVPN for just $3 per month.



3. ExpressVPN ($8/month)

Even though ExpressVPN is not as well known in the Kodi community, it is still one of the best VPNs you can use for Kodi. ExpressVPN doesn't store any activity logs, so your privacy is preserved, and it's also historically been one of the best VPNs for watching US Netflix in the UK. ExpressVPN also comes with an excellent support network, and if you're unsure or unhappy with the service, you can take advantage of its 30-day money-back guarantee. After that, ExpressVPN will cost you $8 per month for a 12-month contract.


4. IPVanish ($6/month)

There are several Kodi VPNs out there right now, but IPVanish is definitely one of the most popular among the Kodi community, mainly because of the freedom it gives users. Of the VPN services on our list, IPVanish is one of the most legally dubious as it allows access to torrent services and offers a strict no logs policy, which means that the details of your connections will not be stored. It's also easy to use on desktop or mobile, and if you have any issues, IPVanish offers awesome customer support. IPVanish costs around $6 per month, at the time of writing.
