Now you are all set to install Trepidation Kodi addon.

Before we get started, let me tell you that the following installation method will work across all Kodi supported devices because Kodi interface is the same on all. Whether you are using Kodi on FireStick, Android TV, Windows, or smartphones, the steps will remain applicable.

Kodi users are strongly advised to use a VPN while streaming. I always use IPvanish on my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.

Your IP is visible to everyone. A VPN hides your IP and protects you from online surveillance, ISP throttling, and hackers. It also unblocks geo-restricted Kodi Add-ons / Builds.
