What is Shazam?
Shazam is a content-streaming Kodi addon for movies and TV shows. This addon is easy to install and use, has a sleek, uncomplicated interface, and has excellent video resolution ranging from 720p to 1080p.
Shazam’s TV series and movie library has diverse content genres, including action, animation, comedy, romance, adventure, horror, sci-fi, and many more.
Navigating the Shazam Kodi addon is easy. You can move from one section to another without lagging or buffering. Other highlights of this addon are the filters that let you select content through categories like genres, interests, and topics.
Shazam supports Trakt TV, a service that tracks your watchlist and recommends customized streaming options. You can also upgrade from the free links to fast,buffer-free links by linking your Real Debrid account. Refer to this guide for some of the best Kodi addons.
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 Shazam Kodi Addon Safe?
Shazam is an unofficial Kodi addon located in the Narcacist repository. Therefore, FireStickTricks cannot determine its safety. This means it’s best to research the addon to establish whether it’s safe to use before installing it on your FireStick.
However, I ran the repository hosting the Shazam addon on VirusTotal, and it didn’t contain any malware or viruses.
Is Shazam Kodi Addon Legal?
FireStickTrick can’t ascertain the legitimacy of addons operating in legal gray areas. Remember, it’s illegal to download or stream copyrighted content through unauthorized channels. Therefore, always watch content in the public domain.

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.
