What is Stremio?
Stremio is a modern media center that allows you to watch various content in a single place. It will enable you to stream content online anywhere and anytime. If you are familiar with the concept of either Kodi or Plex, Stremio works similarly to them.
A significant advantage of Stremio is that it is cloud-based, meaning whatever addons you download will be added to your cloud account rather than your device. It also signifies that whenever you install some addon on your mobile, it will directly update the same to your TV.
Is Stremio Safe and Legal?
Stremio can’t precisely be deemed a safe platform as it has some piracy content. Some addons also have illegal content on Stremio. So, it is strictly recommended to use a VPN. It helps to create an encrypted path between VPN’s server and your device.
So, if anyone tries to intercept or hack the data, they will not understand anything. You will also be protected from being charged with piracy content violations.
