🚀   WHAT DOES THE TECH COMMUNITY THINK? 🚀 ★★★★★
"Private Internet Access, one of Lifehacker readers' favorite VPN service providers, makes it easy to surf privately and securely from anywhere." – Lifehacker.com
"There have been several Editors' Choice VPN services recently, as one product tops the next, but Private Internet Access out-performs and out-features the competition. With 4.5 stars, Private Internet Access sets the bar high and is truly the Editors' Choice, trumping all our previous favorites." -- PC Mag
“When shopping for a VPN service, it is recommended to find a service that does not log its customers’ traffic and prevents an anonymity-unmasking issue known as IPv6 leakage. Private Internet Access carries that level of security.” – Wired.com
Why does the app need camera permissions?
The camera is used only when you scan a QR code, nowhere else. Earlier versions of Android (before 6.0) will incorrectly report that we need this at all times.
GDPR compatibility
This application only send username and encrypted passwords to our servers as part of using this app. During signups, we also collect user-email. We not collect and/or store any other user information.

Reviews From google play store

Not impressed. Buggy AF on Android. While it did fix Verizon's throttling of YouTube, twitch, Netflix, etc, I will randomly lose ALL connectivity and have to force close the VPN. Update: contacted customer support and was told it's normal and they couldn't do anything about it. It's nice to SOMETIMES be able to get around Verizon's throttling, it's not worth the headache to pause, unpause, force close, and restart this app fifty times a day.


when it works, it works great. when it doesnt...terribly slow speeds, will never connect. no way to report slow speeds or traffic from mobile app. desktop much better, can report easily. no idea when my subscription expires, difficult to see from app or desktop. I need my VPN to work 100% of the time...when I am in a slow net area it seems to make PIA 0kb speed. it never connects to anything when this happens. this truly IS the "best" VPN in all other aspects, yet I have issues 10% of the time.


Was working great until recent Android updates. Now the widget doesn't work properly and the tray icons stay active even after the app is shut down and you get multiple pull-down menus also. A fix for this is well overdue.


So far, the mobile version works as expected.. however, the widgets can be clunky and im having an issue with the app running in the background when not in use, even after closing. I've had to resort to "force quit" every time. Also, every time the app updates, i have to go back in to turn on the darl theme. Seriously? This is pretty annoying. Enough for me to leave a review.


Doesn't work anymore, since the last update this app is useless.i paid for 2 years upfront and now I see that was a bad decision. Every server I tried to connect to fails, this is not good! Update: as of 3/15/19 go into your phones Android VPN settings and select the VPN as Always-on active, since doing that i am now able to connect to vpn servers again and you can toggle it on or off through the PIA shortcut!


I like the app and that PIA has added quite a few great features in the last 6 months or so. However, im using the Trusted Wifi feature for my work Wifi and it can never connect without me closing the app and reopening it every morning. Instead it is stuck in an infinite loop of failing to connect, causing significant battery drain.


Works great when it works, but it keeps closing. The school I work at has a wifi filter, even for the teachers. So I use this to get around that. On my pixel 3, it just closes randomly and I never know until I try to answer or send a DM and it just doesn't send. Or I don't get them at all in the first place. It's seemingly random. I think I'll try a different VPN next month


- Used to be a PIA fan boy/girl/user for many a year, but sincere we took the 3 year offer, wow, we sure regret it. - The App is terrible buggy in Android Pie, have to reset our S8's to make notifications dissappear, it's the only way, as no matter what we have tried, this still remains a big problem. - We will not use a NON PLAY APK: as their email reply asks, they should have been prepared for Pie release, the App should work! - PC Pings & Speeds are constantly bad! - Beta testers yet again!


Paid for this app last year. Only froze my devices and slowed them down. Stopped using the app and figured I had lost my money. I get an email thanking me for my auto renewal and can not get a refund. The app doesn't work and I never used it. Pls spend your money anywhere but here. I would rather leave mine on the side of a road it's the same thing


PIA is great unfortunately this version has been causing some bugs (Android 9.0, Note 9). This are the the PIA notification toggle saying connection is still ongoing when it's not, staying in the pull down menu even after turning it off, having duplicate toggles in this pull down menu both have different running counts for ongoing connection when there is none and the inability to remove said notifications from the menu without turning notifications off completely... Thank you, will do.


Used to work great. Doesn't work now. Internet is crazy slow while using, or doesn't work at all. I've even been starting to have the same issue on PC as well (along with frequent drops while downloading files...uncloaking my IP and eliminating the point I got the service for). Time to start looking elsewhere. Too bad, though...I have been a customer for over a year and have really liked this service until the last few months. *Update* Computer runs great now, phone app unusable


This app has been great, but now I'm experiencing crazy battery drain to the point where I can watch my battery percentage tick down. Will update when this issue is fixed.


I've been in IT for 21 yrs and a Network Administrator for 9 of those yrs (so I've tried them all) and I can honestly say that this is probably the best VPN out there, especially for the price. Very trustworthy and really good speed thru the servers, which are the two main issues with most other VPNs.


like others it works fine on PC, but it doesn't work on Android, keeps telling me my login details are incorrect. i have been through tech support but everything they have suggested is aimed at the pc app not the android app despite me frequently mentioning it's the android app I'm having problems with. Beginning to feel like I'm pissing into the wind.


It works pretty well...so I have a question does this works from hackers getting into your phones? because just before I put this on my phone I had hacker problems will this help keep hackers out?


The app is good and does what it says on the tin, but there are a couple of minor annoyances. Whenever the app updates, my preferences get reset, including losing the dark theme. Not fun in a dark room being unexpectedly blinded with the default white theme. Also, for me, the automatic region selection never connects to the internet. I have to purposefully choose a specific region to connect. These issues don't break the app, but if they get fixed it'll be worth 5 stars instead of 4.


Frequently loses internet connection and have to manually change servers to get it to work again. Not impressed.


After using the App on my phone and my home PC and after discontinuing my account they still took the money for a year out of my account afterwards. Not a good look ...


As a network engineer, I am very familiar with many of the VPN offerings that exist these days. I personally use private internet access, and I highly recommend it for both clients and friends alike.


It does what it promises but customer support NEVER answer, only got an email confirmation of ticket initiated but nothing more. I created the first one 6 months ago and still no answer. ... one last thing, when is running, internet goes a little bit slow.
