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.

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.

WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS THINK? “Firstly, the company is second to none in terms of support, troubleshooting, and individualized assistance. 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. 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 GDPR compatibility This application only sends username and encrypted passwords to our servers as part of using this app. During signups, we also collect user's email. We do not collect and/or store any other user information.



  • Battery Drainer

    By Doreido
    Simple and easy to set up due to the great app. Works well on my Mac as well. Since installing on my phone though the app has become the largest drain on my battery. The PIA team needs to look into this and why on earth a VPN app needs this much background activity. Draws into question just what exactly is this doing in the background????

  • Latest update not good

    By dataspot
    Latest update seems to drop VPN connection whenever I leave wifi. On top of that, when I go to reconnect using the 3D Touch menu, it doesn't seem to know it's disconnected and only offers the Disconnect option. Please fix this issue. I don't want the app trying to guess when I need VPN service. It should stay on until I turn it off. Update: the beta seems better. Will edit further once it's publicly available.
  • Version 2.8.2

    By RazorVault
    Seriously?!?! 👎 👎👎 This won't even stay connected to any server I try using. After a minute or two it *always* comes up with "unexpected error" and drops me. I have a long term subscription to this app and to your company and it'd be decent if you could return it to a working status asap.
  • Not what I expected

    By Kimmykim57
    I was told that this helps book cheaper flights but it really doesn’t
  • Pia was working fine but.

    By Markipeweye
    Private Internet Acess, the app has a very user friendly interface and was working fine for a couple weeks, until my wifi started disconnecting after I turned on my VPN, sometimes even when I turn on my phone, I see the wifi connect as the screen turns on, this does not happen on regular wifi. Sometimes the Vpn will outright not connect even with a good signal (data and wifi).
  • Reconnect option

    By Jani1157
    With as often as your server goes down can you add a reconnect option to 3D touch devices.
  • Bad week

    By The_Hunka_Uncka
    I’ve had this since January loved, I had no complaints... until last Monday. I went out for some political business and tried using it with the WiFi at my Municipal clerk office, and it hasn’t been working correctly ever since. I’m not sure if I picked up something or other, a subtle virus, but nothing has restored it to peak function, not rebooting or a major update I had previously postponed. Since I’m not sure that it is on your end, I’m giving you 2 stars instead of one, but is something isn’t done to alleviate this, I will cancel in a few weeks. This is very frustrating. Update: It is STILL turning itself off at random on WiFi, and won’t stay on for my LTE at ALL.
  • Battery

    By Steve_>
    No connection or speed problems but the battery drops off very fast on OpenVPN. Switched to IKEv2 protocol and the battery drain is back to normal.
  • Great service, but terrible battery consumption

    By namecannotbeblanq
    Connections are stable, killswitch works as expected, speed is good. Unfortunately, the app consumes a LOT of battery in the background when killswitch is enabled (which is the only secure option really), about 30% a day on a xs max, which makes the phone last less than a day for me. Hope it gets fixed some day.
