Precautions before installing Fire TV Guru addon
#1:- Make sure you are using a VPN
This is an important precaution you should do before installing kodi add-ons. Not only for Fire TV guru addon but also it is good to use VPN before installing and using any sort of add-ons with kodi. The reasons are different. One important reason is, piracy and copyright issues. Fire TV guru add-ons are controlled by third-party team. The TV shows, movies, sport events etc listed on fire TV guru are completely managed by these third-party people. There will be several built-in channels and videos that may under copy protected law. If your country is strictly against these piracy acts, make sure you hide your IP address through a VPN software.
Another reason is the restriction your ISP made for fire TV guru URLs. If the ISP receives a DMCA notice against the URLs mentioned in Fire TV, they may block you to access such links and channels. So you should bypass such restrictions before accessing these channels and links. So VPN is the best way to do such things.
#2:- Make sure you have active Internet connection
I have seen many people complaining that, during kodi build installs, they are getting many sort of errors. one important reason is because, they try to install kodi without connecting to Internet. kodi build installations require active internet connection for downloading the files over internet. Some builds are bigger in size and it is recommended to use a fast network.
