Use VPN with Bennu Addon
Even though Bennu offers a wide range of content but it can be a significant security risk. Very little of the content that it offers is distributed legally whereas predominantly it hosts pirated streams. And to avoid litigation due to pirated streams the Phoenix add-on was shut down. Also, Bennu being a third-party application is more vulnerable to the unscrupulous add-ons as compared to the add-ons available in the official Kodi repository.
And so before you start streaming any media from a third-party add-on, use a VPN that will hide your identity online and keep you anonymous. You can use any high-quality VPN like IPVanish, NordVPN or ExpressVPN.
Bennu hosts a massive library of content that you can enjoy immensely. Its fan base is growing regularly and may suit you.
