Now let‘s dive into the good stuff!

Is It Safe to Install the Diamond Kodi Build?

I totally understand being cautious about installing third-party Kodi addons and builds. You want to avoid any malware or privacy risks.

The good news is I‘ve scanned every Diamond repository file on VirusTotal. Zero malware or viruses detected.

However, Kodi does show this warning when enabling Unknown Sources – the necessary step for installing Diamond:

Kodi Unknown Sources Warning Message

Third party builds can access data on your device. That‘s why I always recommend using a VPN like Surfshark when streaming from unofficial addons.

A quality VPN will encrypt all your Kodi traffic. Your personal data and IP address will be protected.

Surfshark has a 30-day money back guarantee, so you can try it out risk-free.

So in summary – Diamond itself is safe to install. But take precautions to protect your privacy.

Having these top addons pre-configured saves you tons of install time. Finding working addons and setting up menus can take hours.

But the nice thing about Diamond is you can further customize the build to your needs.

Top Add-ons Available in the Diamond Repository

The Diamond repo provides access to many other great Kodi addons beyond what‘s pre-installed.

Here are some of my favorites:

  • Umbrella – All-in-one Exodus fork from the Crew developers
  • Wrath – Fast loading movies and shows add-on
  • The Oath – Extremely reliable Exodus fork
  • Magic Dragon – Great TV show and movie addon
  • Fen – Unique addons leveraging debrid services

Browse the Video Add-ons section of the Diamond repository to install extras. But the build already packs in enough entertainment to get you started.

Now that you know what Diamond offers, let‘s discuss the legalities of streaming this type of free content.

Is the Diamond Kodi Build Legal to Use?

This is an important question all Kodi users should understand. While the Diamond build itself is perfectly legal, what you access with it may not be.

In a nutshell:

  • The Diamond build simply aggregates content. It does not host or distribute copyright-protected material itself.
  • However, many of the addons pull streams from pirated sources. Accessing or streaming this copyrighted content is illegal.
  • Downloading pirated material is also illegal.
  • Using a VPN hides your IP address which helps keep streaming private and anonymous. But it does not make the streaming itself legal.

Kodi builds serve as a portal – what you access through that portal is your responsibility. Limit yourself to free legal sources like:

  • Crackle
  • Tubi
  • Pluto TV
  • IMDBtv
  • PBS Kids
  • YouTube
  • Fitness Blender

Or, only stream content you have the rights to access, like personal media files or subscriptions.

If you stay vigilant, Kodi builds like Diamond provide amazing entertainment potential.
