Private Internet Access (PIA) VPN has over 3,000 servers in 37 locations in 28 countries. It has a ton of options which include encryption levels, DNS leak protection and a kill switch. These features enable you to configure PIAVPN to suit your needs. Personally, we used couple months ago, we have never had any issues and also user interface is extremely easy to navigate as we needs change to consider to another VPN on this list, but for now suits our needs just fine if you are someone that’s into torrenting.

PIAVPN does not collect or log any data or use of its VPN or proxy now that is perfect now that means that PIAVPN is not login any users data. The app has an kill-switch to interrupt data connection in case the VPN drops. OpenVPN, PPTP, IPSec/L2TP protocols and options are available and the encryption can be customized. You also can quickly modify all your connection settings via the app. Users are free to use Internet they wish, such as peer to peer is allowed, you can access to unlock any geo-blocked content and everything else is good to go. But sometimes, the software felt less than stable and the connection issue.



Next let’s have a look at PIA VPN’s service plans. You’re going to see they ofer three different options.

Their two years plan works out to $2.91/month. This is the best price point, save up to nearly 60%. If you’re not satisfied the pricing is not too bad either if you pay annually, it is $3.33 a month. PIA VPN offers additional payment options including cryptocurrency Bitcoin, for those who do not want to have a paper trail of VPN payments.


We received an automated email response with a tracking number and take a pretty long to receive email from PIA VPN team support. The message request had been received and was in the process of being reviewed by support staff. Seemly, they do not have 24/7 live chat support, however they still provide the FAQ, blog, and website in general.


Now, once you sign up, go ahead and download the software of your choice here, that way you can go ahead and get running and test the VPN service out.
