Is it legal and safe to use? Install ExpressVPN to stay safe

Safety

Whether a build on Kodi is safe or not is relative to the user. The Diggz Xenon Build doesn’t come from Kodi, so it’s not official. Needless to day, there’s no control from the Kodi team as to what goes into the repository. This can change at any time.

Ultimately, it’s up to you as a user to guard against malicious software and protect your privacy. Current scans have shown there to be no malware or suspect files within the Diggz Xenon repository. 

Regardless, you should always use a combination of virus protection and VPN before downloading or viewing content through Diggz Xenon. This is the best way to protect your personal information from hackers.

Legality

Most of the content on Diggz Xenon is not legal. The build has tons of content sources from torrent repositories and other pirate sites. Streaming this type of copyrighted content without payment is illegal in most countries around the world. 

If you’re caught and turned into the authorities by your ISP, you could be subject to legal action. This is the other reason it’s important to hide your IP address from your ISP using ExpressVPN.

This is another reason to hide your IP address with a quality VPN provider like ExpressVPN.

Installing ExpressVPN to stay safe while using the Diggz Xenon Kodi Build

Whether it’s hackers, corporations, or ISPs, online tracking and privacy is a big issue. We gave you a solid list of the best VPNs for Kodi previously. And there are certainly many more out there. 

However, if you want to use the best-of-the-best, there’s no other choice than ExpressVPN. It’s an easy-to-install, intuitive, user-friendly VPN that always has your back. 

ExpressVPN has servers in 160 locations in 94 countries, so you can always find a solid IP to watch your favorite content. It uses some of the best encryption systems on the market and is one of the fastest available.

Most importantly, ExpressVPN will keep your system safe while you browse on any device. Using the web without a VPN invites hackers into your network to steal information. Whether or not you’re watching content online, always keep your IP private with a solid VPN.

Playing Movies & TV

Since this is easily the most popular category, we’ll focus here. From Movies & TV, you can access thousands of movies and TV shows—old and new—from a variety of addons. 

This is the best category to provide instructions on using Diggz Xenon. You’ll replicate these steps in many other categories on the build, but we’ll review those as well.

From here, you have a couple of options.

FAQs

What is Diggz Xenon Kodi Build?

To answer this question, let’s distinguish between builds and add-ons for Kodi. 

A single add-on on Kodi could give you access to many types of content, whether official or not. Most unofficial Kodi addons give you access to a specific repository of links. You must open Kodi and then open the add-on to access content. 

A build bundles groups of the top add-ons and repositories all in one place. It also integrates into Kodi to give you customizable layouts and looks. When you install a build, you only have to open Kodi, and it’s there—with no extra steps.

Diggz Xenon is one of the most popular Kodi builds because it has loads of working addons in a user-friendly format. With Diggz Xenon, you can access tons of content from a wide range of categories like TV Shows, Movies, Sports, Arcade, Music, Streams, TV Guide, Kids Zone, and much more.

What is the best Kodi build?

There are many opinions of what’s the best Kodi build, and it’s hard to proclaim which one is the ultimate, must-have build.

Developers release new builds every year. To stay on top of their game, they’re updating features based on user feedback and the best available Kodi Addons.

Different Kodi builds are better for different people based on the type of content they watch. And the user interface is another factor that could determine which build is the best for you. 

If you’re unsure of where to start, we have a list of the best Kodi builds in 2022. And note that Diggz Xenon consistently makes it to the top ten in most Kodi build review lists—including our own!

How do I use Kodi builds and are they legal?

Using Kodi builds isn’t difficult. Just install the build, and navigate through the different categories to find content. Builds usually include Live TV or IPTV, TV Shows, Movies, Sports, Kids programming, Fitness, and even more. Once you access a category, click on the link to play.

For legality, this is where things get tricky. It’s legal to download, install, and use a build on Kodi. However, using a build typically involves accessing copyrighted content that’s illegal to watch for free. 

Before viewing content with a Kodi build, be sure to install and run a VPN on your Firestick to protect your privacy.
