Is it Legal to Use Kodi on a Firestick?

Yes, Kodi by itself is completely legal. It is an open-source media software that is designed to store and play your personal media files.

However, the legality of Kodi can become a grey area when third-party add-ons are installed that provide access to copyrighted content without the proper licensing. Using this software legally means sticking to verified add-ons that can be installed from Kodi’s official repository.

In other words, Kodi is an open-source platform and it strictly does nothing on its own. This is similar to YouTube, GitHub, uTorrent, and other popular software.

Is This Application Safe?

Before installing this app, we wanted to scan the official APK installation file with VirusTotal.

Here is the screenshot of the scan results.

Is Kodi on Firestick Safe?

VirusTotal did not find any malicious viruses/malware within the official Kodi APK file.

However, this does not mean we shouldn’t protect ourselves when installing 3rd party addons from Kodi.

The best way to do this is with a secure VPN that will secure your identity and anonymity when using 3rd party apps.

Overall, if you own an Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, or any Android device Kodi is a must-have!
