Is 9 Lives Kodi Addon Safe & Legal?
9 Lives Kodi addon is safe as its host repository, GrindHouse repo, doesn’t contain any malware, according to VirusTotal. However, as with any other third-party Kodi Addon, the legality side of the addon is a bit sketchy. This is because the 9 Lives Kodi addon provides links to content that may be pirated. But at the same time, the addon doesn’t host the content, it only scrapes for links from the publicly available web. This means that it is your responsibility to mind what you access.
