Exodus is one of the most popular Kodi add-ons. Its is however not an official Kodi add-on and you will not be able to find it on the official Kodi ad-on store. This is because Exodus is used to stream pirated and copyrighted content.

This is also the reason why it’s one of the most popular Kodi extensions.

1. Is Exodus for Kodi legal?

Using Exodus itself is not illegal. What is however illegal in several countries such as the United States, Canada, UK and Europe is to stream copyrighted content. So, you can actually use Exodus without getting into trouble, the only think that is against the law is to use to watch pirated and copyrighted content.

Most of the TV shows or movies available on Kodi come from websites that contain pirated content, as such you can get into trouble if you watch these shows or movies if you are located in a first world country.

2. Can I use Exodus anonymously?

In order to avoid the issues described above you will either have to avoid using Exodus altogether or use it with a VPN that encrypts your traffic and stores the encryption keys on your local device. Let me explain why.

If you are using a VPN that encrypts all your web traffic, then only your device will be able to actually see the contents of your web traffic. It will not be possible for any person or computer program to actually see what websites you are visiting while using the VPN or what movies or shows you watch.

If your traffic is encrypted then no one will be able to tell what you do on the internet. Not even your ISP!

Even if 100% of your web traffic gets recorded, it will be useless data, as it will be encrypted.

You should use a VPN that only stores the keys to decrypt your data locally on your computer. This means that not even the VPN company itself will be able to decrypt and see your traffic.

It also means that the only way to decrypt and see the contents of your web traffic is to have physical access to your device.

If you do the above, then you will not have any issues using Exodus.

Please note that we don’t endorse using Exodus for illegal means such as watching copyrighted content. This is just a technical description of how a VPN app works – which is 100% legal – and what effects it has.

Below you will find a few questions and answers regarding the usage of Exodus and a VPN.

3. Can anyone see what movies I watch on Exodus?

If you don’t use a VPN then yes.And you can get into legal trouble if it’s copyrighted content. If you are using a VPN with the characteristics described above then no, no one will be able to see what movies or shows you watch.

4. Can someone decipher my traffic even with a VPN?

If you use a top-tier VPN with local device based encryption then no, no one else other than you will be able to decrypt your traffic.

5. Is Exodus safe to use?

Exodus is a known and popular apps used by millions of people. It is totally safe to use. There are however many rouge Kodi apps that are not safe and may contain even malware. Exodus on the other hand is known to be absolutely safe and secure.

The only think you need to be worries about is using it without a strong VPN. You should ALWAYS use Exodus with a VPN no matter what.

6. What is the best VPN for Exodus and Kodi?

The best VPN for Exodus in my experience is NordVPN. This is because NordVPN uses advanced encryption and only stores the encryption keys locally on your device. This means that without physical access to your device no one will be able to know what websites you visit or what movies you watch with Exodus.

NordVPN also has a zero logs policy, meaning it will not collect and keep any records of the activities you do on the inter net while using the app.

NordVPN is excellent for streaming with Kodi and Exodus because it has extremely fast servers well-suited for streaming which are capable of running HD and 4k videos without any buffering issues decrease in video quality.

So I hope I did answer all your questions here. Remember that using Exodus without a VPN can get you into trouble, so always and every single time you should use a VPN when using Exodus. This is very important.
