I will show you how to install Genocide Kodi addon in this post. This article is relevant to all eligible Kodi devices, including FireStick, Nvidia Shield, Windows PC, Android phones, Macs, and more. I’m using Kodi 19.5 on FireStick Lite for demonstration. In this article, I’ll take you on the journey of installing Genocide, using it, discussing its safety & legality, and everything in between. So, let’s dive in.
What Is Genocide?
Made by a developer called Genocide, Genocide is an all-in-one Kodi addon available on THE CREW REPO. People love Genocide because of its versatility. You name it, movies, TV shows, concerts, standup comedy. You’ll find all sorts of entertainment content on the Genocide Kodi addon.
Genocide gives you free access to everything freely available on the internet through its robust scrapers. However, you can also add premium hosters like Real Debrid to boost your entertainment experience.
Genocide features a simple, neat, and clean user interface. All the sections have relevant sub-sections, so you can easily browse them with no issues. Also, it includes a powerful search function to find any content you like within a snap. Overall, Genocide has all the ingredients to be one of the best Kodi addons available on THE CREW REPO.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect to a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3 months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
Is Genocide Safe & Legal?
Let’s talk about safety first. Genocide is available on one of the most popular repos, THE CREW REPO. I used Genocide and didn’t find anything that may lead to any safety issues.
However, I’m not a security geek, so I can’t give a 100% clear-chit to the Genocide Kodi addon. But I did check the zip file of THE CREW REPO on a famous virus checker website, and the results were quite surprising – here’s the screenshot of the result:
Regarding legality, we are also unsure because we do not have enough resources to determine if the content available on Genocide is legal or not.
In conclusion, I would like to say that always connect to a VPN when using a third-party app/addon. I recommend ExpressVPN as it keeps your personal data safe and turns you ghost the moment you turn it on.
How to Install Genocide Kodi Addon
To install Genocide on your Kodi app, you must do two things beforehand – enable unknown sources and install THE CREW REPO. And then the addon itself. I have broken down the three into separate parts so you can easily follow along without getting stuck or overwhelmed. So, here’s how it goes:

Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources on Kodi
By default, Kodi doesn’t allow you to add third-party repos/addons/builds/wizard for safety purposes. In this part, I’ll show you how to enable unknown sources on Kodi so you can easily add THE CREW REPO and install Genocide. Without further ado, let’s jump in:
1. Open Settings by selecting the Gear button on the home screen of Kodi.
2. Go to the System tile.
3. Roll down and select Add-ons from the left-hand side panel. Scroll down and turn on Unknown sources on the right.
4. Kodi will send you a warning prompt regarding your safety; click Yes to continue.
Part 2: Install The Crew Repository
Genocide is available on the famous THE CREW REPO. In this part, I’ll show how you can load THE CREW REPO on your Kodi app to access and install Genocide easily.
1. Select Settings in the top left of your Kodi home window.
2. Click File manager.
3. Select the Add source option.
Note: Can’t locate Add source due to the populated File Manager list? Scroll down.
4. Select <None> on this popup.
5. Type the official path/URL of THE CREW REPO https://team-crew.github.io and click OK.
Note: We aren’t affiliated with THE CREW REPO. I have only mentioned the URL that leads to the official source of the repository.
6. Highlight the field Enter a name for this media source.
7. Enter The Crew and click the OK button to save the name.
Note: You are free to set any name for THE CREW REPO, but I recommend The Crew.
8. Click on the OK button to save changes.
9. Go back to the Settings page and select Add-ons.
10. Open Install from zip file.
11. Click Yes to get past the warning pop-up sent by Kodi.
12. Select the name of the repo you chose. It is The Crew (in my case) on this window.
13. Pick repository.thecrew-X.X.X.zip.
Note: X.X.X has replaced the version of THE CREW REPO. Presently, the version number is 0.3.4, but it can change in the future.
14. On successful installation, Kodi will notify you with a message – THE CREW REPO Add-on installed.
Part 3: Install Genocide
Here’s how you can install the Genocide addon on your Kodi app:
1. Go to Kodi Settings > Add-ons and select Install from repository.
2. Open THE CREW REPO.
3. Open Video add-ons.
4. Choose chains genocide in the following window.
5. On the Genocide dashboard, select Install.
6. Wait for Genocide to download and install on Kodi.
7. Kodi will send you a notification once the installation finishes – Genocide Add-on installed.
You have now installed Genocide Kodi Addon.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
