Private Internet Access®, or PIA, enables users to encrypt their network traffic and stay protected when online with our proxy servers. 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. If you use WiFi hotspots without encryption, your data can be seen, blocked, throttled, censored, or otherwise changed. • PIA MACE™. Private Internet Access MACE(™) blocks ads, trackers, and malware while you’re connected to our VPN server. • Defeat Censorship. Access blocked apps or connect to censored websites.

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. iOS has a VPN notifier by the Bluetooth indicator icon, so you are always aware of your status. 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

    The app will be unable to connect to any server often. I will have to force restart or manually change server locations to maintain a connection.
  • Per app setting

    I wish we had the per app setting on ios app as well.. Android has the feature... now I am not able to control smart home devices as it says I am not on the same network.
  • Still has some severe connection problems

    I thought the application got better with the recent update as of January 2018, but this or not the case. The VPN connections are still extremely unstable, and continues to disconnect on its own at random times. Although the VPN client still tell you're device that it's still connected, in reality it is not. Even when you see the VPN sign at the top of your phone, when you go into the VPN application, a wheel will be spinning in the public IP section, meaning it it's trying to reconnect to the servers. While this is happening, your device will report that it's still connected to the VPN, but you will have no internet connection. Please fix this issue! Even the OpenVPN client continues to have issues with this same thing in iOS!

    1. Got rid of Dark mode 2. Got rid of ping timing from servers under region selection 3. Does not also connect if it does takes a long time Made this app less useful to me.
  • So far so good

    It’s still kinda early for a review but the app kept insisting me. So far the only problem I’ve had was enabling this particular vpn to work with the nvidia shield. Customer support told me they don’t support that device at this time but in fact it does work on it but takes a little more work getting it on there.
  • IT WORKS AGAIN yay

    The last version was atrocious, didn’t work at all and hadn’t been updated for months, so I switched over to letting OpenVPN manage my PIA profile (which was a little more stable but still had issues). The new 2.3 update to the PIA app actually works now and has finally been updated for iPhone X. It looks cleaner & even handles switching between wifi and cellular pretty well. I’m happy for now and I like PIA (works great on Mac!), but I hope the iOS app keeps working and gets updated more frequently for bug fixes / iOS version compatibility. If not...there are plenty of other good VPNs out there.

    The app doesnt work in the UAE and getting your money back isnt fun. However they do respond quickly to enquiries. Will update if I get my money back.
  • What Happened!?

    By iDon76
    Update: Their last update did nothing to fix the issues on the X.This use to be a solid VPN but has gotten to the point of being unusable. It constantly loses connection or is so slow it’s worse than 3g. Please fix ASAP or I’m moving on.
  • Cannot Use the Service

    I paid for a year as I moved to Beijing and read before purchasing that it would work with getting around the firewall to access social media sites and still unable to access them or google where all of my email is. I also can’t get to the website to contact them either.
