How to Change Kodi Skin (Jarvis / Krypton / Leia)

Fire TV & FireStick, Kodi, Kodi Fire TV News

This easy step-by-step guide walks you through how to change Kodi skin quickly and easily.  This changes your Kodi set-up’s appearance by changing the skin. Many skins are readily available through Kodi; however, there are specific mods of some of these skins that have to be downloaded manually and installed as a zip file.

With what is going on online it has become more imperative that one protects himself while exploring the internet. This is possible with VPNs, as they aid to prevent your ISP from monitoring your online activities. They are also capable of getting around restrictions set up by these providers. VPNs are also great for public Wi-Fi networks.

I recommend IPvanish & StrongVPN as the two most trusted VPNs in recent times.   It’s easy to set up IPVanish on Firestick or any other type of device.
