They have horrible customer service! Their product maybe cheap or good but the customer service is terrible.Deal has now ended. DEAD.

This is NOT an internet service provider.
More info on what a VPN is and why it is useful: http://lifehacker.com/5940565/why...your-needs
  • You may connect with up to 3 devices simultaneously with a single account.
  • A router that supports DD-WRT or Tomato can connect and counts as 1 single device.
  • The regular price of the service is $6.95/month or $39.95/year.
  • There are 263+ servers in 9 countries and growing.
  • Port forwarding is available in the application or with a script/API available on the PIA forum.
  • DNS Leak protection is available in the application's advanced settings
  • Internet kill switch kills any internet access in the event of a VPN connection drop and is available in the application's advanced settings.
  • A SOCKS5 proxy is also available.
  • Bitcoin and Ripple are available as payment methods. You can buy bitcoin on a Bitcoin exchange.
  • If you pay with any service other than Bitcoin or Ripple, you will be automatically charged the full $39.95 price next year. But you can unsubscribe at anytime and still use the remainder of the year you've paid for.
  • Every purchase includes a 7 day refund period.

Here are some alternative VPN services that have large selection of servers (worldwide)proxy.sh is $5 month

Setting up BT software Vuze (used to be call Azureus) to only use VPN connection (won't connect if VPN connection not available.)
Here is a tutorial of it.
http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...hrough_VPN
Here's a tutorial for utorrent: http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...IP_binding
(Remember to un-check make new firewall rule in utorrent settings/prefs)

Enter the interface identifier into the field next to "Bind to local IP address or interface" in the settings.
Note that the interface identifier is named different on every system, so make sure to check how exactly it is called on yours.
In their example, it is "eth15" for OpenVPN, "net2" for PPTP" and "net1" for L2TP.

Make sure the checkbox next to "Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available" is checked;
otherwise it can happen that Vuze keeps downloading without using the VPN.

If the Vuze setup is done correctly, it will ONLY use your VPN connection. If you didn't login to your VPN service, Vuze won't work.


Rock...I bought it and went back without linking through here and price was back up to $3.33 per month. I now check and it is back down again. Get it while you can as it may change again.

Not to vouch against this VPN, but

it reduced my bandwidth from 10 Mbps to 2 Mbps.downlink

Strangely my uplink has increased to 30 Mpbs from 10Mbps
My connection is 25 mbps and The best I can do right now on any server is around 11 Mbps with many of them 2 to 4 Mbps. Looks like they overloaded the servers.

I've been using them for four or five months. No issues. BitTorrent works as well.



Nothing is logged with this VPN. One of the reasons why I like them over others.
hey - just curious can you have all your multiple internet devices be anonymous or is there a limit?

The software is installed on the PC and everything that you do on that PC goes through the VPN. I'm using Windows 7, I'm not sure what else the software can be installed on.

okay thanks! I think I'd prefer for the VPN to go through my router instead of going through each laptop or internet devices I have

They might have a version that lets you do that. I'm not sure. I opted for the software version because I like to choose the location I want to appear from on a whim.

Jeez, no need to get so offensive. Mad much?

I don't even remember what the post was about or what scenario you're referring to so I don't know how it's supposed to help either. Confused

I was bored so I went back to look it up for you guys.
Someone said something about how VPNs aren't entirely anonymous since it will log the IP the VPN uses. Then someone said to daisy chain it to get around that. Then someone asked him to explain that. Then you used the LMGTFY on him.

I think the whole idea might be to VPN into a VPN into a VPN.... and then your IP might sort of kind of be masked by all that VPNing.

Bahahaha, thanks and repped! So I don't get why he called me a Twit and says he knows what daisy chain is, if he asked about it in the first place.

But yeah, the concept of daisy chains is basically a VPN into a VPN, kind of like Inception (dream within a dream).

However, for the truly paranoid, you're still only safe if all of the VPNs you use don't track. But if you take this statement to be true, then you'd probably be good with just 1 VPN in the first place lol.

I am also interested if this can be achieved.
Yes, i have been testing it out.


1) log into your account through PIA and generate a proxy username and password

2) open utorrent and select preferences and then connections

3) look at PIA forums to find Proxy settings (its on front page of forums)

4) copy settings into utorrent with your generated username and password.

5) restart utorrent and you should be good to go.

now your browsers/apps use your regular connection and utorrent uses the VPN

SIDE NOTE: when doing this method you are just using another IP to send data through and not actually encrypting it, so you would also want to select the "encrypt data" option in utorrent as well. (this is what i have gathered form the forums)

this is also secure in the sense that, if the proxy has issues, utorrent will disconnect, vs if you use the client and the vpn drops, utorrent may still run. though people have fixes for that as well. (setting VPN and a public network, and your internet as private, then allowing utorrent to only run on the public network)

also, some people are extra secure and run utorrent with the proxy settings while also using the VPN.

I hate to resurrect an old thread, but I was wondering if those who had this renew recently were charged the original 20% off rate for the second year, or was it the full price.

As far as I can tell, the site has no kind of admin center where you can view your renewal date, payment method, etic... maybe that's by design, but not very convenient.

Same here, I paid through Amazon payments, and they told me a few days ago it would renew at that rate. Got the same confirmation message as well.
