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.
  • In terms of security, OpenVPN>LT2P>PPTP.

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.

Anyone have any experience with this provider? Are they truly anonymous?

FYI, I have had their service in the past and I don't like it because their VPNs IPs are shared among the pool of users. This means that every secure site you visit, you will be flagged because other people have used the same IP to visit the site. On the good side, it is extremely easy to use and for the most part, I could connect to each of their gateways at full speed.

No VPN is truly anonymous because the IP you use to connect to the VPN is always logged.

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.

and how much bandwidth do you lose daisy chaining?

Tried Mullvad a month ago and on a 20Mb connection and got less than 5Mb, I expected the bandwidth slow down, but not just that much. How is it with PIA?

This is a lie. Stuff has to be logged. How do you think they comply with DMCA and child porn laws?

VPN providers actually don't have to log anything, it just makes it more difficult to operate. They can't comply with DMCA because they do not host the content. They're basically a ISP provider.
