I‘ll also discuss the risks involved when using third party addons like Scrubs V2 that are outside the official Kodi repository.
My goal is to equip you with the knowledge to safely install and use Scrubs V2 or any other Kodi addon.
Let‘s get started!
An Introduction to Scrubs V2
Scrubs V2 is a video addon for Kodi that provides access to a huge library of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more.
It‘s considered a "fork" of the popular Exodus Kodi addon, meaning the developer used Exodus as a starting point and built on top of it.
The addon pulls links from various free streaming sites and torrent sources, bringing everything together into one easy-to-use interface.
Some of the standout features include:
Movies – Extensive library of full movies sorted by genres, years, popularity, etc.
TV Shows – Binge entire seasons of TV shows with new episodes added frequently
My Movies and My TV Shows – Integrate your personal digital media library
New Movies and New Episodes – Quick access to recently added titles
Documentaries – Hundreds of full-length documentaries on various topics
Movie and TV Networks – Stream movies and shows from specific studios or networks
Tools – Features like maintenance, log viewers, Trakt sync, etc.
Search – Find movies or shows by title, actor, director, etc.
As you can see, Scrubs V2 essentially provides an "everything but the kitchen sink" streaming experience.
Rather than jumping between different addons for movies, shows, docs, etc., it conveniently brings them all into one place.
Next let‘s go over some usage statistics to get an idea of how popular Kodi and addons like Scrubs V2 are.
Kodi & Addon Usage Statistics
Kodi itself is an open-source media center application that is perfectly legal.
Where things get tricky is when third-party addons like Scrubs V2 are installed to provide access to streaming content from sketchy sources.
But there‘s no denying the immense popularity of Kodi and streaming addons. Here are some stats:
Over 55 million active Kodi users worldwide (Source)
Roughly 18% of US households with WiFi use Kodi (Source)
There are thousands of third-party Kodi addons available
Exodus and Genesis, addons similar to Scrubs V2, have been installed over 20 million times
Cybersecurity company Surfshark found 74% of Kodi addon repositories contain malware or illegal content (Source)
The massive demand for streaming content, both legal and illegal, is fueling the exponential growth of Kodi and addons like Scrubs V2.
And with the popularity comes increased security risks that you need to be aware of.
Is Scrubs V2 Safe to Use?
Since Scrubs V2 comes from outside of Kodi‘s official repository, there are inherent risks involved any time you install unfamiliar third-party code on your device.
Fortunately, I scanned the Scrubs repository URL and it checked out clean:
But malicious code could get bundled into one of the dependency packages during installation. And the streaming sources indexed by the addon could also potentially contain malware.
That‘s why I strongly recommend always using a VPN like IPVanish anytime you‘re streaming from an unverified addon.
A VPN encrypts your connection to keep your identity and device safe and secured. It also hides your IP address and online activities from prying eyes.
You can learn more about installing IPVanish on Firestick and Android TV in this guide.
With those precautions in place, you can greatly minimize any risks while still enjoying everything Scrubs V2 has to offer.
Speaking of which, let‘s dive into how to install Scrubs V2!

Streaming Tips and Considerations
To get the most out of Scrubs V2, here are some pro tips:
Using a debrid service like Real-Debrid authorizes your account to access faster, higher quality streams from file locker hosts and torrents. This significantly improves the streaming experience. Learn how to setup Real-Debrid here.
You can sync your viewing history and watched status across devices by connecting your Trakt account in the tools section. This is especially handy if you use Kodi on multiple TVs or media players.
When searching for movies and shows, you‘ll get the most results by keeping the titles simple and avoiding extra descriptors. For example, just "Star Wars" instead of "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope".
Browsing the new movies and new episodes categories is a great way to keep up with the latest releases added to the addon.
If you experience any issues playing streams such as buffering, unable to play errors, etc., go into the Tools section and run the "Clear Providers" and "Clear Cache" maintenance options. This typically resolves many common problems.
And those are my top expert tips and advice for getting the best experience using Scrubs V2!
Are Kodi Addons Like Scrubs V2 Legal?
Now you might be wondering – is using Scrubs V2 and other Kodi addons fully legal?
The short answer is…it‘s complicated.
Third-party addons like Scrubs V2 live in a legal grey area because they potentially facilitate access to pirated content.
However, there are also completely legal ways to use unofficial addons:
Streaming free, public domain content – Older movies and shows no longer under copyright protection can be freely streamed. Scrubs provides access to many public domain titles.
Watching content you own – If you own digital copies of movies and shows, Kodi addons help organize and play them.
Using addons to launch legal apps – Some people use addons primarily as menus to launch authorized streaming apps like Netflix or Plex.
So while the underlying technology behind Scrubs V2 itself is legal, how each person ultimately uses it could enter into piracy territory.
The burden is on the user to avoid illegal streaming, downloads, and uploads of copyright-protected content.
One way to stay on the safe side is by using a VPN like IPVanish that hides your IP address and online activity.
A VPN adds a critical layer of protection so you can maintain your privacy and anonymity while using Kodi addons.
The Best Legal Streaming Alternatives
If you want to steer 100% clear of any potential copyright concerns with third-party Kodi addons, your safest bet is to use verified legal streaming services.
Here are some of the best free options:
Plex – Media server software with an extensive collection of free movies, TV shows, and documentaries.
Roku Channel – Ad-supported on-demand streaming with no signup required.
IMDb TV – Popular movies and shows from studios like MGM, Lionsgate, and Sony Pictures.
Tubi – Massive content library with over 20,000 movies and shows available for free.
