If you have been trying to install Colossus Repository on Kodi recently you probably found that none of the file source URL’s are working. This is because the Colossus Repo is down as it was officially taken down in November 2017.
In this guide we will show you a working method of how to install Colossus Repo on Kodi by manually downloading and installing the Zip file from the official Colossus Repo GitHub Page.
Stay Protected While Streaming On Kodi By Using a VPN
As you are probably aware, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) knows everything you see online. To keep yourself anonymous and protect you from unwanted people seeing your online information, I highly recommend you start using a VPN.
I personally use PureVPN to protect my privacy whilst streaming on Kodi. Not only does PureVPN make sure all of the internet traffic coming in and out of my house is encrypted, I can also use it on maximum of 5 devices at any given time which is great whenever I decide to use my laptop to stream Kodi on the go. Some of the other benefits of using PureVPN are:
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- Anonymous Browsing
- Defeat ISP Throttling
- 256 Bit Encryption
- IP Address Masking
- 7 Days Money Back Guarantee
With the current legal changes happening surrounding online streaming its a good idea that you start using a VPN to make sure you stay on safe side.
