    How do I install Private Internet Access on Kodi? Can you please provide step by step instructions? I've tried MetalKettles OpenElec but it doesn't seem to let me enter my PIA credentials. Maybe I'm missing something??

    I've used PIA in the past. It always worked by going to Android system Settings > Wireless and Networking > More > VPN and logging in to one of PIA's servers with your userID and password. You shouldn't need to do any setup in Kodi. They also had an app that you could use at startup.

    This worked! I went into the VPN settings for the Android device and not through Kodi. I was able to connect.

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't think there's a way to turn PIA on and off from within KODI. I tried one of those launcher type add-ons in the past, but couldn't get it to work. Like the other guy said, you'll need to start PIA from your OS, then start KODI. When you want to turn it off, you can minimize KODI using the "/" command, turn off PIA, then use the "/" again. I would just leave PIA on at startup and learn the setup from this kodi vpn blogs:

    I am not sure about PIA, but I have used PureVPN. It always worked for me with Kodi. They have complete setup guide for Kodi VPN which you can see here

    You normally install the PIA, and other VPN client apps on Android, not Kodi. All your other apps and background services use it when you are connected, not just Kodi. You can launch and use PIA with, or without, Kodi.

    I currently use IPVanish, but used to have a PIA account. Neither program actually requires any Kodi setup. You can simply launch the PIA client app before using Kodi, Mobdro, etc. - and then disconnect from the PIA server when you are finished.

    I think in our time, there should not be any problems with the choice of a virtual private network for any task. NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and TunnelBear are the most suitable VPNs for Kodi. Here you can read all the reviews on this theme -
