Task Killer Features & Description
For complete navigation within the Task Killer app, a mouse may be needed. If you have a compatible Bluetooth remote this will grant you access to other features such as the Settings in the upper right.
For those without a keyboard or remote with mouse, we can install Mouse Toggle to use this feature.
KODIFIREIPTVTip: You should always use a VPN to protect your identity and security when installing any 3rd party applications. Even though these APK’s contain no malware, the developers and even your ISP can still log what you’re accessing through your IP address.
Using a VPN will ensure your anonymity by masking your IP address making your location and information completely unknown.
