How can I use Kodi with NordVPN

Note: you can encrypt your Kodi traffic by setting up NordVPN app on Windows, macOSAndroid, iOS or Linux without configuring VPN addon directly at Kodi.

Kodi is a very extensive Media Player. It is highly advisable not to use it without additional security measures. To use it with NordVPN, you would have to connect the device that is running Kodi to NordVPN servers.

You can read more about Kodi here: https://nordvpn.com/unblock/kodi/. We also have a video tutorial for setting up the Kodi:

  1. Make sure that OpenVPN is installed and reachable from the command line.
     
    • If you’re running Kodi on LibreELEC and OpenELEC, you can skip this step as it comes pre-installed.
       
    • If you are using Windows, check the tutorial on how to install OpenVPN and put it on your command path.
       
  2. Download the NordVPN add-on zip file from nord.app/kodi and add it to your Kodi device. You can do that by:

    a. downloading the file directly on the device
    b. downloading it on your computer, saving it to a USB key, and connecting that USB key to the Kodi device.
     
  3. In the Kodi interface, go to Settings -> System settings -> Add-ons and flick the Unknown sources switch to ON.


     
  4. You will be presented with a warning message. Our add-on will not be collecting any data on you, so you can safely click Yes.


     
  5. Go back to the Home screen and click on Add-ons. In the Add-ons menu, click the Package button in the top-left corner and select Install from zip file. Depending on how you added the add-on zip file to your device in Step 2, locate the file and select it.




     
  6. After the installation finishes, you will see a prompt that NordVPN add-on has been installed and will be offered to run a setup wizard. Select Wizard.


     
  7. You will be guided through the setup and asked for your NordVPN account credentials.




     
  8. After you enter the credentials, you will be asked whether you want the VPN to connect automatically on startup. If you do, you will also need to select the country you want to connect to.






     
  9. When the process finishes, you will be successfully connected to the VPN.
