13 Kodi Repos You Need to Uninstall and Why

Several well-known Kodi repositories disappeared around the middle of 2017. The attack on TVAddons sparked two distinct lawsuits in two different nations, which exacerbated the situation.

Several additional repositories and add-on developers have put their projects on hold because of the litigation.

Most users couldn’t keep track of which repositories were still active since there were so many that had been abandoned in such a short period of time. Anyone who has used Kodi for a long time knows that maintaining abandoned repositories on your app is a recipe for security disasters.

One of two security nightmares could unfold:

  1. A hacker might purchase the domain of the depreciated repo and use the existing installations to inject malicious code onto a machine.
  2. A copyright holder could initiate a “honeypot” sting whereby a repo appears to offer premium content for free, while in practice, a tracker records your IP address and passes it on to the legitimate rights holders.

Which Kodi Repos to Uninstall and Avoid

So, in light of the current Kodi climate, which repos do you need to delete off your setup? There are too many out there to list them all, but here are some of the former most popular repos which can no longer be considered safe:

  • Noobs And Nerds
  • Looking Glass
  • Colossus Repository
  • Smash Repository
  • DandyMedia Repo
  • SpinzTV
  • Ares Wizard
  • Alpha Repository
  • UK Turk’s Playlists Repo
  • Mucky Duck Repo
  • Soulless Repository
  • Origin Repository
  • Pulse Build / Wizard

Note: Just because some of these still work, it does not mean you should use them.

And before you ask, no, we’re not going to recommend alternative repos that will let you find content for free. Yes, they exist, but using them could land you in significant trouble with the law.
