In this tutorial, we will learn how to delete Kodi addons step by step using multiple methods. However, for some reason, you may have to uninstall Kodi addons from Firestick, Android TV box, or any device.

Why Uninstall Kodi Addons?

Reasons to Uninstall the Kodi addons might be the following:

  • You have got another best Kodi addon or build to install
  • You want to update the Kodi
  • The addon is causing problems like buffering in streaming
  • The addon occupies an ample space of your Firestick or device
  • You have many addons or Kodi builds, and you use only a few
  • You want to increase Kodi performance

It is always better to delete the addons and builds you do not use because these will consume your resources unnecessarily. Sometimes, Kodi frequently hangs due to the Addon or Builds creating problems. Another reason can be addon is not updating or the repository path is different.

Attention, Cord-cutters!

I want to warn you that whatever you stream online is visible to the Government, ISPs, and Third Parties. Following are some of your details:-

IP Address: 44.211.239.1
Location: Virginia US
ISP: AS14618 Amazon.com, Inc.

You must be aware that streaming copyrighted content without a license is illegal and may land you in legal trouble.

I urge you to comply with the rules and regulations in your country, but what if you land up streaming illegal content unintentionally?

No worries, there is a foolproof way.

Hence, I suggest using the most secure VPN, i.e., ExpressVPN, which has military-grade encryption. In addition, ExpressVPN enables buffering-free streaming, hides your IP address, Location, and bypasses the geo-restrictions and bandwidth throttling.
