How to Reset Kodi on Android TV Box

Kodi is a multimedia player that is open source and can stream both online and offline video content on all the operating systems. Since it is open source you can experience lag or hanging issues, especially on Android-based smart TVs. But it is because of any of the addons installed on your device, most addons on Kodi are built to run on PC, so if you have installed such addons then you might need to reset the app to get things back to normal.

Tip-off !!

Streaming without a VPN exposes your IP address, making you vulnerable to privacy breaches and hacker attacks. Without encryption, your online activities are more susceptible to monitoring by ISPs, snoopers, and the government. Lastly, accessing geo-restricted content may be impossible without a VPN, limiting your entertainment options. Hence, it is recommended to use a VPN.
