How to Install Umbrella Kodi Addon
The installation process is straightforward and is broken down into three simple parts. To install the Umbrella Kodi Addon on your device, please carefully follow all the instructions below:
1. Allow Unknown Sources within Kodi
We must install the Umbrella add-on from an external source because it cannot be installed through the official Kodi repository.
By design, Kodi forbids the installation of add-ons from third parties like Umbrella. You must allow the installation of unofficial or third-party add-ons on Kodi. The steps are as follows:
1. Open the Kodi application on your preferred device.
2. Then, navigate to the top left corner of the display and click Gear Icon ⚙️.
3. Select System from the list of choices.
4. On the menu bar on the left, choose Add-ons. Click the toggle switch for Unknown Sources now on the right side of the screen.
5. A warning will appear on the screen.
Read this before proceeding.
It says the Add-ons will be given access to personal data stored on your device.
Now, if you do not want your personal data accessed by third-party add-ons, it is important to use a reliable VPN like ExpressVPN while streaming through a third-party Add-on.
2. Install Repository Containing Umbrella Kodi Addon
Next, we will install the Umbrella repository for Kodi. Please follow the instructions below:
1. Click Gear Icon ⚙️ once more when you are back on the Kodi home screen.
2. Hit File Manager.
3. On either side of the screen, click Add Source.
4. Choose <None> on the dialog box.
5. Enter the following URL:
Check for mistakes. Click OK when you are ready.
6. Give this source a name that can be identified easily. I’ll call it Umbrella. Click OK.
7. Select OK.
8. Go back to the Settings screen and select Add-ons this time.
9. Click Install from zip file.
10. You will see a notification about the third-party addon’s auto-update feature. Choose Yes to continue.
11. Select the source name you previously typed (in my case, Umbrella).
12. Select repository.umbrella-x.x.xx.zip
13. Wait until you see the message “Umbrella Repo Add-on installed” appear in the top right corner.
3. Install Oath Kodi Addon
We can now download and install the Umbrella add-on from the Umbrella repo. Here are the steps:
1. Simply select Install from Repository on the Addons page.
2. Select Umbrella Repository.
3. Navigate to Video Add-ons.
4. Click Umbrella.
5. Click Install in the lower right corner.
6. Clicking OK will permit the installation of additional dependencies.
7. Kodi will download and install the Umbrella addon.
8. Wait until the message “Umbrella Add-on installed” appears in the upper right corner of the screen.

To access your collection, lists, and other Trakt features, go to My Movies and My TV Shows on Umbrella’s main menu.
