Fixing Installation Problems

If you can't get Kodi onto your iPhone or iPad, make sure you have sufficient storage space on your device first.
  1. Open Settings and tap on General
  2. Tap on About
  3. Go to where it says Available, and you will see how much space you have free on your device.

If you don't have enough space, clear some stuff off your device – uninstall apps you don't need, delete files you don't need and move your media to another storage place, i.e., a USB flash drive.

Is Kodi Safe to Use?

Kodi app is perfectly safe to use, and it is legal – if you are only using it for storing your own media. Where the legality greys a bit is in using the add-ons as these are not strictly legal. However, if you use a VPN, you can hide them from your ISP and from Apple, so they cant be revoked. If you do choose to use an add-on, be aware that the smaller ones tend to disappear very quickly. Chose one of the better-known sources (there are plenty of lists on the internet) as these are regularly updated to keep them safe and secure.

There isn't any doubting the popularity of Kodi; it is used by millions across the world. You do use it at your own risk but, providing you keep yourself secure and use the official download links, you will have a lot of fun with the app.
