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.

I held off on the update due to the Killswitch issues you mentioned. I run it on my media server along with Peerblock whenever downloading stuff.
No need to, just set your firewall to block uTorrent (or whatever) on private connections and ok on public. Set the VPN network as public, home network as private. The second the VPN disconnects it'll kill the torrent app connection and stop it from running off your regular IP.

Not knowing what you're talking about = priceless

Hamachi has nothing to do with PIA. Open VPN is your own VPN, if you're looking to download Bittorrent files with your own hosted VPN at home enjoy getting your speed throttled and DMCA notices. And good luck accessing European-only streaming sites with either option you mentioned. This solves those problems, and at full speed.

Please don't threadcrap unless you understand what's being offered, your post is FUD. This is a GREAT deal on a solid service.
free cable + untraceable ip = dont need to pay for vpns. ip hop and thats it wave besides downloading torrents and illegal stuff hmm. doesnt mean youre going to be invisible to the authorities if you are downloading stuffs. either way there is other ways than paying for something..

Why I'm still not choosing to invest in it. It skyrocketed in price, on what is practically a virtual stock market not controlled by any real world laws of currency fluctuation. It is scary unstable for it to skyrocket like that as a CURRENCY, so I am not touching it until it starts to stabilize.
im waiting for $100 a coin. then im cashing out Big Grin so far im beyond happy with my investment.. wanted to get a asic but beejezus is it expensive or empty promises

I've been using their service since September, and I have no complaints. I don't know what their bandwidth limitation is, but it's faster than my 6mbit AT&T U-Verse DSL, because I experience absolutely no slowdown.

Interested but not quite familiar with VPNs Smilie If I am using a secure SSL to access to a newsnet server, I don't think I will have any need for VPN, isn't it? ISPs should not be able figure out the content? isn't it?

I'm interested in purchasing this and would like to use bitcoins to do it, but having never done anything with bitcoins before, with everything I'm reading, it looks like coinbase is the place to buy bitcoins. How can something that's linked to your bank account and done online really be anonymous? Is there a way to buy bitcoins quick without having to link your bank account? I'd like to purchase this service while the promotion lasts!

Been using this for a few weeks and no complaints. As others have said they don't keep logs and the price is right.

This is a lie. Stuff has to be logged. How do you think they comply with DMCA and child porn laws?
What is the point to use VPN if they can track me?
