Also, we strongly recommend you to ALWAYS use a good VPN while using any third-party Kodi add-ons. I’m using Express VPN on Kodi, Firestick, PC, and Smartphone. It’s #1 VPN in terms of speed and security.

Once you enabled the Unknown Sources, go back and select the File manager option to add a media or plugin source.
