When you start using Kodi, you might find the user interface a little plain and straightforward. If you are new to using it, this article will help you get acquainted with it. But you won’t always be stuck with the same interface. You can change it by installing different builds on Kodi. Today, we are going to talk about a specific build that you may find convenient.

Kodi Misfit Mods Lite is one of the most popular Kodi builds. In fact, it is recognized as the Kodi Build of the Year in many blogs. It is light file size-wise, has a beautiful UI, and offers different addons. Don’t let the small size of Misfit Mods Lite lead you into thinking that it won’t provide access to the best Kodi addons. This lightweight build is as powerful as the heavy builds. Plus, you’ll get a premium-looking Kodi skin.

Misfit Mods Lite build is available via the official Misfit repository. In this repo, you can also find Misfit Mod build. Misfit Mods Lite is an abridged version of the Misfit Mod Build. It is lighter and ideal for new Kodi users who are still getting the hang of Kodi features.

If you don’t already have Kodi installed, see our tutorial if you want to learn how to install Kodi on Firestick.

Let’s get started!

How to Enable Unknown Sources

To install any third-party addon (an addon that isn’t available via official Kodi channels), you will need to enable unknown sources from settings. This is a security measure that keeps you from adding unknown sources to your Kodi, and it is a good way of keeping you safe from hackers and malicious third parties that might try to harm your privacy in different ways.

You should do a background check on the third parties you want to add as the source. It is always a good idea to be sure of what you are installing on your devices. Let’s learn how we can enable Unknown Sources. 

1. Go to your Kodi Settings and open the System.

Kodi Home Page

Kodi Settings Screen

2. Click on Addons, and from the right-side menu, toggle Unknown sources.

Under Settings/System category, choosing Add-ons shows Unknown sources with an on-off slider button

3. A warning prompt will appear. Choose Yes to continue.

You have successfully enabled Unknown sources. This will let you install different addons and builds in your Kodi via different third-party sources.

Simple, isn’t it? When installing any addon or build to Kodi, the steps are roughly the same as above.

Afterward, you can start installing any addon or build from the repository of the one you’ve just installed. Once you get the hang of it, the rest comes easy, and you get to enjoy all its benefits.

Before you start streaming on Kodi, always be cautious of your actions. That’s because every detail can be monitored. Your internet service provider (ISP), government, or some malicious third parties are able to track everything you do online. The invasion of privacy is a rampant problem in the digital age.

Our personal info, likes, dislikes, search history, and even the details pertaining to our identity can be sold to advertising companies. In worst cases, to the black market. In today’s world, where almost anything can be transacted online, we must protect our online identity by halting unwanted access to our personal information.

How to Maintain Your Privacy When Streaming via Kodi

Protecting yourself from prying eyes is very easy. Just use a VPN. It masks your online activity and your searches by encrypting our internet browsing activities. 

Setting up ExpressVPN is simple and as easy as 123! You need a subscription, but don’t let that scare you. ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can buy a subscription and use ExpressVPN for free for 30 days. If you, for one reason or other, are not satisfied with ExpressVPN, you can always cancel within 30 days. But you’ll probably continue using it as it truly is the best VPN service of today.

Let’s learn how we can set up our ExpressVPN account and install it on our Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K device.

1. Go to the ExpressVPN website, choose the plan you want to buy. Create an account and add your payment details.

4. Let it download and then open the ExpressVPN app. Click on Sign in. Enter your email ID and Password. Please note that you can’t buy a subscription from this app, and you will need to use a smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer prior to using it on Firestick.
