Add privacy and security to private and public networks when you browse the Internet and use WiFi, whether connected to a hotspot or at home. High speeds, unlimited bandwidth, connect with 5 devices simultaneously (smartphones, tablets, computers), no traffic logs, and 24/7 professional, native English speaking customer support. WHY USE VPN FROM PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS®? • Low price. $3.33 per month if you purchase a yearly account ($39.99/year) or $6.99 on a monthly basis. • Reliable and trusted VPN provider since 2010 with a proven no log policy. • Privacy is our Policy. Here at PIA, we not only provide a great VPN service at a low price, but we also support organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, FightForTheFuture, Creative Commons, Open Rights Group, Index on Censorship, freenode, Wireguard, Arch Linux, and many others. We respect your privacy and anonymity. BY USING VPN FROM PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS®, YOU GET: • IP Cloaking. Your IP address will be changed to a Private Internet Access IP address to hide your identity and location. Hide your IP address to stop data trackers, snoopers, and hackers from tracking your browsing and search activity. • Data Encryption. Encrypt your internet traffic with our VPN proxy. Our trusted online privacy service creates several security layers which keep you anonymous and prevent access to your data. It’s time to change your WiFi habits. Don’t use WiFi without our secure VPN to proxy your internet traffic! WiFi Security. With WPA and WPA2 now kracked, you need a VPN to protect your WiFi everywhere - not just in hotspots, coffee shops, cafes, hotels, and airports.

WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS THINK? “Firstly, the company is second to none in terms of support, troubleshooting, and individualized assistance. Their nodes and hubs are top speed. Their client is streamlined and has a tremendous ease of use.” JAYDLUV, 10/10/2017 “This is my go to app for VPN. Been using Windows version for years and the iPad version is great.” Pkcarreon, 09/18/2017 “No hiccups, no crashes or anything. It just works great. Bear in mind you have to subscribe to the service for this to work. I highly recommend it.” Scott Loflin, 09/15/2017 “Simple and solid. No issues even when traveling.” Joe1134206, 09/8/2017 “Love it. Feel safer when browsing the internet.” Cachuco, 08/7/2017 “Hard to find a nit with this app. (...) The iOS app allows a quicker toggle on/off than digging into settings, for VPN hostile iOS apps like Pandora and Netflix. I like PIA’s value for the money, and I have not had any trouble whatsoever with the iOS app. I recommend this app, and PIA, as one of your layers of online security.” DB Associates, 01/27/2017 “I did my homework, reviewing many VPN services. PIA was among the most economical, plenty of simultaneous connections and more than enough servers and services. (...) The speed is more than I hoped for. I can stream all YouTube videos. HD quality is superb with no buffering. I am happy to have this extra security on all our devices. My wife could not tell the difference after I installed it on her PC. I think I paid $39.99/year. What a bargain!” Helmut, 06/20/2016 GDPR compatibility This application only sends username and encrypted passwords to our servers as part of using this app. During signups, we also collect user's email. We do not collect and/or store any other user information.

    With all the hacking and bad news we hear about people whose had their lives turned inside out because of malicious net activity. PIA gives me that piece of mind. Just run the install from the app and it's flawless. Perfect on the PC as well. Need to investigate Chrome OS, but it seems like this company really has their technology worked out in a way you can trust. 3 Cheers to you!
  • Slow servers, poor customer support, no refunds

    After getting only 20mb down on a 500mb connection for over a month I contacted support. They had me jump through a ton of hooks using copy and paste templates that were completely unrelated to the problem. If I get 20mbps on my phone and laptop how does adjusting my laptops firewall solve the slowness on my iPhone? They refused to prorate a refund. Their “automatic” server selection tool connects me to Boston USA almost 100% of the time when I am in EU. They also use the Comcast model of only offering the best price to new customers. Renewal? Pay double and no refunds whatsoever. The irony is palpable given their service is designed to combat the isp’s privacy practices lol. There are other providers that don’t throttle their customers like Comcast does, I’ll be switching as soon as I’m able.

    It won’t even let me sign up but made me pay the $6.99. Such a waste of money

    Their response below shows how clueless they are: “Bad customer support? Contact customer support!” “Fox stealing eggs? Hire the fox to guard the henhouse!” Sheesh. I asked over and over again for a manager to contact me, and ... crickets. Their response below helps prove the point that they do not want to admit or cannot even comprehend what the issue is — even after the explanation in my review and after dozens of emails back and forth with their customer “support”. Dealing with them is like dealing with someone who denies that something as plainly evident as gravity exists ... and then (after arduous explanations of what should be presupposed) having them still deny it over and over again — despite it being evident to anyone with common sense. They play dumb so as to not ever issue a refund. They are glad to steal mistakenly duplicate payments. ————- Let me moderate my comments below (===). I cannot impute to the entire company the actions of a couple of retarded “customer support” reps unless the company condones their actions. Basically I wanted to renew my yearly subscription at the end of 2018 and tried via the PIA app to renew and it didn’t work via PIA’s in-app purchase (no credentials sent and “pending” for days), so I made the purchase directly on the PIA website while also sending a support ticket to PIA asking them to not bill me for the “pending” in-app purchase that did not work. The in-app purchase however still processed about 6 days later resulting in a double charge (about $80) for a yearly subscription. When I tried to “report a problem” with this in-app purchase, Apple’s automated system kept referring me back to the developer to resolve this issue. I contacted PIA. The issue was plain as day and evident, but the customer support at PIA pretended it was not evident and would not credit either one of the two charges for only the single subscription I wanted. After many email exchanges (you cannot call them) displaying unbelievable idiocy or dishonesty on PIA’s part (denials and evasions of what was plain as day), I then finally in desperation reached out to a live person at Apple who — unlike PIA customer “support” — immediately saw the plain-as-day problem and immediately credited the in-app App Store purchase from PIA. The PIA customer support agents apparently need a good flogging 😉 for being either liars or idiots, and then fired. ============= (previous review below) That says it all. Their customer support is seemingly populated with no one but idiots, liars, or cheats. In my experience it is despicable company without an ounce of integrity. Been a customer of the service for many years, but after my recent experience with their “customer support” I could only in my opinion dissuade anyone from doing business with them. Unbelievable.

    I originally rated this app 1 star. However the last update fixed connectivity issues for me. I will give it 5 stars if this stability continues.
  • Drains battery on iPhone

    By SunandBlue
    This app drains the battery on my iPhone fairly quickly. I turn the PIA off and charged the phone. After turning off the PIA, the battery usage is back to normal. The iOS is up to date and it has a new battery so now I know there is something wrong with that PIA app that is causing my phone to drain much quicker. PIA, please look into this and update it.

    Avoid! Despite PIAs general reviews as a decent VPN service, they double billed me for 9 months. When I alerted them to this fact, they refused to reimburse me. When I asked how it was possible to bill someone for two subscriptions despite both being on the same email address, they said that sometimes people like to have two accts with same address. I had simply tried to retrieve a login for my (single) acct, not understanding that this is the only business I’ve ever heard of that allows customers to sign up twice on the same email address without alerting them to the fact they are setting up a second subscription. They are refusing to refund me and their customer service is atrocious based on an email only ticketing service. I am not an experienced VPN user and they have exploited me. I am disgusted.
  • Doesn’t work when I leave WiFi

    By Brandon098
    This app works fine, but if I leave the house it trashed my internet and nothing works, the app then refuses to connect again. If they fixed this issue then it would be 5 stars, but this is a deal breaker to me. You can’t have privacy if the website/app your using is going to get your real ip as soon as you turn off The vpn just so basic internet will work.
  • Great VPN

    It worked perfectly. When connecting dangerous public WiFi, it can encrypt data with VPN so hacker hard to reach out data.
