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.

Select System

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.

Select Yes.
