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.

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



  • VPN PIA issues with WiFi

    By Digital Art Nomad
    I was happy with the application until recently. I am traveling and the VPN PIA is disconnecting my WiFi which is causing me to use a lot of cellular data. This is causing a major problem. When I delete the VPN PIA app, problem solved and WiFi works again, but I can’t use VPN services on my phone.
  • Started out nice...

    By Kharris_89
    Have been using pia on my phone, iMac and Linux laptop for about 6 months now. Everything started out beautifully, easy to install (even on Linux), and my devices to a very small internet speed hot but completely worth it. Fast forward to now and my devices now take a huge speed hit and i have to reset my connection constantly. I went from loving it to feeling ripped off. I paid for a year of service and unless something changes I will not purchase another year.
  • Seems to work without interfering

    By Brandbs
    Runs seamlessly in background, without creating problems for other apps. A good app for a good service.
  • Disconnects

    By JoshedT
    Keeps disconnecting and won’t reconnect unless you open the PIA app and do it manually.
  • New update still not 100%

    By Jones style
    I still get the "ip resolving" issue all the time. It constantly disconnects or totally blocks my internet connection. If i dont check it and do the disconnect / reconnect fix my emails wont update for hours. I might even be missing phone calls due to my use of Sprints wifi calling feature that i have turned on. Additionally the PIA MACE feature does not seem to really block ads. I have my own website and even with PIA MACE turned on i can still see myself show up on my google analytics realtime tracking. MACE works great on the desktop but for some reason its really spotty on the iphone and does not seem to block GA most of the time. The Fix: I have found that if you just download the OpenVPN app from the app store and import a PIA profile it stays connected basically 100% of the time. I dont think the standard profiles have the same level of encryption that the app does and you will lose the MACE feature but at least it wont disconnect on you. Update 8/2/2017: This update seems to have fixed most of the ip resolving issues but not the issues with PIA Mace. I have also now noticed a new issue where after i close my phone when connected to wifi then go to unlock it it shows me as disconnected from wifi and from the vpn. Then once i unlock the phone it goes back to being on wifi and connected to the vpn. This is prob just a bug and not really a disconnect issue but im still giving this one star because a vpn is all about protection and if there is any chance im not connected when i think i am then its worthless to me. Update 8/3/17 It seems this latest update has made it worse. It was working ok before this last update but now it goes back to ip resolving and drops the connection again. Im on iphone 7 ios10.3.3 Update 8/13/17 Still breaks all the time and gives the ip resolving statement. Seems they have taken a step back again. The OpenVpn app works better. When you import PIA's config files into it it never breaks the connection. Update 1/26/18 Version 2.2.2 still disconnects all the time. It seems to cut the internet connection completely so your real ip does not leak but its a such a pain to constantly have to disconnect and reconnect to get it work. Im sure as soon as i disconnect my real ip pings a bunch of servers and renders this app worthless because if your ip leaks even once whats the point of the app. Using the OpenVPN Connect app has much better results but really drains your battery. I cant even keep it on for a full 24hrs without fully killing my battery. I really hope PIA can fix this issue as there hasn't been to this app in a long time. Update v2.3: Still nothing changed still constantly breaks and needs to be disconnected and reconnected just another update to purge all the old negative reviews.

  • Will be requesting a refund

    By 97304neta
    I just renewed my subscription after one year but I will asking for a refund. I have hardly been able to use the internet at all for 4 days. I am constantly changing regions to find a good connection and there are none. The wheel spins and spins and spins until it times out. They don’t make it easy to contact support either. PIA is made for the dinosaur ages. I have had it.
  • When it works ...

    By Joelee427
    When it works is great. But several times a week I have to turn it off in order to get some web page or other to load. I contacted support and they suggested changing a dozen or so ports until it worked better. Above my pay grade and level of interest!
  • Service ok
