We‘ll also cover key information about Absolution, like is it safe and legal to use. By the end, you‘ll have everything you need to start streaming tons of great content with the Absolution addon. Let‘s get started!

Is Absolution Safe to Use?

Whenever installing third-party add-ons outside of the official Kodi repository, it‘s smart to check if that addon is safe to use.

I scanned the Absolution repository URL on VirusTotal and it came back clean, with 0 detections. This suggests there isn‘t any malware present in the addon files itself. However, Kodi does show a warning that third-party addons like this will have access to data stored on your device.

That‘s why I strongly recommend using a VPN like Surfshark when installing and using Absolution or other unverified add-ons. A VPN will encrypt your connection to keep your data safe and anonymous.

Overall, as long as you take precautions like using a VPN, Absolution appears to be safe to install and stream from. But let‘s walk through how to actually get it installed correctly on your device.

Is Absolution Kodi Addon Legal?

When it comes to third-party Kodi addons like Absolution, it‘s impossible for me to say definitively whether the addon itself is legal or not. Since it‘s not part of the official Kodi repository, that does raise some questions about its legality.

However, the legality ultimately depends on you as the end user. Accessing and streaming content that you have the rights to is completely legal. But downloading or streaming copyright-protected content without permission is illegal.

So as long as you use good judgment when streaming with Absolution, you should be fine. But do so at your own risk. For the most complete safety, I suggest using legal streaming apps instead.
