Disable add-on auto updater Kodi

Depending on what repositories you install and the level of trust you have in them, it could in some cases be a smart move to consider disabling automatic add-on updates in order to ensure that the integrity of the add-ons you use aren’t compromised by untrustworthy developers.

Step 1: Navigate to the “Settings” tab under the “SYSTEM” menu heading.
