🚀 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

"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

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.

    Have been using it for years. Keeps banking and sensitive transactions safe. I trust it enough to use it on open wifi. Never a problem. Doesn't slow down my connection. More than enough regions to choose. Good pricing and basically runs in the background with no interference. Works well with Brave browser. It updates periodically and so far, all changes were for the better. Ill stick.

    apk Good price, rock solid performance, not only for android, but on windows and Linux platforms also, in my experience, all simltaneously working beautifully under one subscrption, and I've tried quite a few, I always come back to this one. Would love if the service could include end point servers in China and Russia etc, but that would be more than any other VPN could offer also, so maybe too much to expect. All in all, this is the best VPN out there, I believe.

    review Suddenly, a top CPU user even when not in use. Happily using this for years, but suddenly it is in the top 3 CPU users on my phone even when it's not activated. Tech support is telling me that it handles all internet traffic even if it's not routing it to a VPN server. Didn't realize it worked that way. Would have thought it was only inserted when "turned on". This combined with noticing that it is grabbing the location of my phone in the background has me looking elsewhere.

    download The app is great easy to use, doesn't make me log in every time I want to use it. But since A11 came out it crashes non stop, like multiple times per hour and sometimes it doesn't even last a few seconds before I need to reopen it and restart the connection. And it crashes so hard that the notifications act like I'm still connected till I reopen the app

    mod apk Issues staying connected on Android 11. After it's disconnected, when I tell the notification to open my VPN app it doesn't open it, I have to go to PIA in the app drawer to open it now. Just not working as well as it did before. Edit: it's also now choosing random servers, this morning it was trying and failing to use Vietnam. Had to manually choose an appropriate one to get connected. 1 star now that this thing is a pain in the butt to keep connected. Unsubscribing.

Outside apps, on the browser it does seem to work for SOME sites though again not netflix etc. On mobile even when I disconnect it keeps connecting back. Also does not function with chromecast

    app store I have had PIA VPN now for three years, and have had an annual subscription for two. I have tried other VPNs, but had speed, reliability and software issues. The software is simple and it works without constant "troubleshooting". My major complaint is ISP blocking - the service's ISPs are now being recognized and blocked by popular websites, probably due to high traffic from the same ISP. I would like to see dynamic ISPs. Speed is ok, but all VPNs cause speed loss.

    itunes The app is intuitive and makes PIA easy to use, even for a senior like me. I used PIA long ago on a laptop. It seemed too slow and difficult to use. I'm really happy I gave it another try because it's working wonderfully on my phone. I'll probably use it again on my laptop once it has been repaired.

    app I'm so glad I only paid for one month. The UI isn't great, but it's passable. What isn't passable however, is the constant disconnecting. I have my device set to block connections outside the VPN, so when this app disconnects, I essentially have no connection. Not that it tells you it's disconnected and this seems to happen at random.

    is free Originally subscribed for the PC version, primarily to use torrent and related networks. Subscriptions cover 10 devices, so it's now on a windows desktop, laptop and tablet, 2 android tabs and 2 phones. Overcoming ISP nuisance limits. If you've tried to get customer service during the pandemic you'll understand! Fast and reliable is my experience. Haven't seen heavy background use when inactive, but I always close the app when not in use. Does everything I need.

    My go to for years. I cannot give PIA enough praise.I started using it on desktop thanks to Linus Tech Tips praising PIA and never looked back.The fact that I never have to worry about browsing/watching/downloading without my ISP snooping in, is just wonderful. Extremely easy to use on both desktop and mobile.Thanks to also having the client run on one account in more than just one device, I've been relieved in knowing that my close family is also covered.So thank you PIA and keep kicking butt.

    When you open the server list it starts towards the bottom which makes no sense, half of the servers won't show latency, most of the US servers are very slow and won't allow a connection, however a lot of apps, podcasts, and websites won't work with foreign servers. You guys are terrible. The app hasn't worked right in a few months now.

    Does not stay connected ever, having auto connect enabled and having given the app all permissions possible to run in the background it still disconnects after about 5 min with the screen turned off and does not auto reconnect either, no clue why in the hell Linus Tech Tips advertises this when the Android app is literally unusable, even crappy nordvpn is better than this app.

    I love PIA, but the apps on my phone and Chromebook are flakey and really haven't improved. I've tried WireGuard and there's times it doesn't work at all. The taskbar shortcut on my phone doesn't work with PIA, I'll tap it and it appears like it's connecting, but stays like that indefinitely until I force close it and restart the app. On my Chromebook it will show connected, but stop internet traffic after a while until I restart the app. Again, great service, but I wish the apps improved.

Also Imgur was giving me non stop ads for the local scumbag "representative" of what ever Lobbyist wrote the biggest check this week. Despite the fact I disabled Political ads on my Google ad personalization, so I VPNed to Romania and now they don't even display ads at all. 131/43 would trust the Romanians to cover my Flanks.

    The service itself works perfectly fine, I mainly use it to bypass restrictions in a single network and for that, it does its job. However, I do not want a VPN on other wifi networks and it was possible to do this before, now I can't ever get wifi networks to show up to create an automation rule for local networks.

    Give your ISP the middle finger. They all throttle bandwidth, more so when it's a competing service. PIA makes it impossible for your ISP to selectively throttle your favorite service. If you have CoNcast or T mobit, PIA is a must. I have verified both of them selectively throttle based on the service you are connected to, and not traffic. They both lie and say it is "provisioning based on traffic load". LIES! Get PIA today so you can actually use your bandwidth as you choose.

    Since at least 8/20 the app went from 5 star to 0. Horrible slow due to bad auto connection picks, ping number's gone, ping skyrocketed. Please fix, I am very frustrated with this app, considering ending my ~5 years of loyalty. I'm seeing similar reviews complaining about recent update. Dont treat your customer as guineas pig for garbage beta build. Please consider offering massive discounts for beta app users instead ruining customers. Did you guys lose your old programmer or something?

    One of the few providers that work on Windows, Linux, and Android so no need to buy separate products for each! As far as I can tell there's no obvious slowdown in use too, so can't fault it on that front either. Only one minor quibble recently with the Next Generation servers... some sites seem to misidentify the location (eg Southampton shows as the US, and London as Romania), but as it's not all of themI'm not sure whether it's the site that's got things wrong, or the server configuration...

    One of the best and trusted VPN in the market. Everything is done in a breeze, no hiccups. I would have rated it 5 stars if tis equipped with an "obfuscation technology" to be completely invisible from your ISP. Tis much better if your ISP doesn't know that your using a VPN or that you ever existed at all.

    Trash new update removes best features. No longer shows ping time to each server/location. Frequently PIA has certain times where it will slow down extremely bad and I would check the app which shows high ping time to the corresponding server. However since the last update this is not viewable at all. So i have to guess which server is fast and deal with even more slowness. Avoid PIA at all costs and go with a better VPN provider.

    ** Updated Review 2 Years On ** I was previously disappointed & rated PIA 1 star. Now i've accepted the things I cannot change & decided to make the most of my subscription. I'm a satisfied user now & have it installed on both my phones, tablet & laptop. The app's U.I. looks better plus it's been regularly updated with fixes, security patches, new features & improvements. 🤔 If they give me a discount if i choose to renew my subscription another 2 years... I'll add an extra star! ⭐

    PIA was sold to a shady adware/malware company in late 2019. PIA had community forums where you could ask questions, report issues, and get help from the developers on their website. The new owners deleted the forums. They don't want you to know who they are. PIA can't be trusted, they are probably selling your data. Use at your own risk.

    Such a great VPN, mainly getting 5 stars just because of the price. You will not find a better value VPN ! You'd expect some cut backs or less premium features but pia will hands down beat any other VPN.

    Quality has vastly gone downhill. Quite often I can't even log into the vpn, it just won't respond. It's gotten a lot slower, many times it just disconnects over and over again. Overall a very unreliable connection. If I disconnect from the vpn my internet works perfectly, but this will immediately make using your network a nightmare.

    Did NOT RENEW. Always 50% speed overhead (200 mbps drops to 100 throughput) which was acceptable. BUT had critical support issue with new Tab S6 and didn't get help; waited over 48 hours, then cancelled. Tab randomized MAC address / quickly consumed all 10 licenses so could not use product with other devices (we've got a PC and a couple of Android). Never got anyone to look at it or do the requested reset. Too bad, product is pretty good

    The app does protect your ip when surfing and using apps but it does connect when I don't want it to, I did check the settings but they where correctly set to only connect when I opt to do so yet it kept on connecting when I did not opt to do so. Had to remove the app to stop it. It also doesn't protect devices that are connected by tethering but I believe this is an android limitation.

    PIA has been great on my PC for years, I'm a long time customer. A few years ago I switched to Mac and found PIA's VPN to work great there too. Same with iPhone and now I'm on android and it's still great. They continue to innovate, the VPN client is the right mix of simple with the ability to customize or be specific only 1 more click away. There's more competition now for VPNs today. The security and simplicity PIA provides across operating systems and devices is a clear winner.

    Used it for years. Playstore banned the version that blocks adverts. You can download from the PIA site. Wireguard now works well, but next gen network has issues and only 2 UK servers not in the UK! If they were, all traffic needs to be logged by UK Law. More problems with disconnecting on trusted WiFi, the app needs your GPS location at all times, a massive privacy and security risk. Some odd things in the background RE logging, GPS, tracking users, steering DNS etc.

    Easy to use. Allegedly keeps no logs. At $35/yr very affordable. Loses one star because Netflix would not allow me to log in while using PIA. Netflix then alerted my brother (the owner of the Netflix account) that someone in Israel logged in under his account, causing a panic and password change. I'm not sure if recent updates have resolved this issue but I have not tried again. Now I use Netflix without the VPN.

PIA states in the app I'm being routed one place and yet when I check the ip address that's not true. Yes, the app is up to date. Vpn app states connected to Texas in the app. ip location service states I'm connected Federal Way Washington DC. App states Chicago ip lookup states Washington DC.

    Got this for my PC while overseas. Has worked great on my phone, haven't and too many issues. Sometimes it when enabled it causes some apps to not work until the connection is disabled. But overall. Decent for a phone but prefer it for my computer

    Not impressed so far. I'm confident in saying that the app uses more battery than a competitor. Also speed test consistently shows about 20mb download when I have 75mb available. No PIA active shows 50-60Mb (over wifi). So the app and/or servers are reducing my throughput.

    I've only used this Private Internet Access (PIA) VPN app for one day, but so far it's working fine on my laptop and phone. I have not noticed any slow down in performance and websites are displaying as usual.

    It doesn't automatically reconnect to the VPN if I lose my connection (even though I've set it to do that, and it used to), and I can't reach the help desk. I've tried via the app and directly form their website. Same error.

    I've used this app for many years & I'm well pleased. It meets my needs & it's developers constantly modify it aesthetically & IMO definitely keep VPN tuned up & ready for providing fast & secure service.

    It is a cheap and effective VPN, and allows you to choose what country it is in

    I use this on Android and Windows and it does exactly what it says on the tin! Would prefer it if the number 1 wasn't always displayed on the icon when it's activate, but it's not a big issue.

    Very reliable VPN. Always at the forefront. I have been with them since 2014 and I have been very pleased with the service they provide. Support is topnotch. Always improving your VPN experience.

    I'm using this app for over 3 years. Mostly using Canadian servers. Fast response and rarely any problem at all. Number of servers is increased over the years. So far so good.
