Dear Slickdealers,
Thank you for the questions!
...
You can connect up to 3 times per account simultaneously with an unlimited number of devices (but only 3 at any given moment).

Hope this helps, and please feel free to keep the questions coming!
Quote from Stunner2xx View Post :
connect 3 devices.

NOTE: if you put it on your router, everything on the router will use the VPN and that only counts as 1 connection, which leaves you 2 more to use.
rep+4 for both.
To privateinternet,
Can I insall on my android smartphone and then use as hotspot to all 8 other devices? So in this case, I only use one vpn connect??

We do not log, period. Where did TorGuard make this false claim?
I personally haven't seen TorGuard make that claim specifically, but there are plenty of Reddit users that think you do log though for some reason (something about the US requiring it?..)

The claim never made sense to me considering you're always toward the top on TorrentFreaks preferred VPNs.

I sign up 2 days ago. Dam*! Do you know if I can get some of this money back?

I always use server in Romania. Cause its far away from anybody I know.

ALERT. I have to turn on my DNS Leak Protection. Go to dnsleaktest to check and if you ISP show up, then you need to turn on DNS Leak Protection.

LifeTime makes this a SlickDeal x3 OMG (as long as nothing is logged.. In Hash or other possible forms)

As for the logging quote... I was told the following thru TorGuard's Chat service...

Quote :
TorGuard: Hello, would you like to talk about our products?

Client: yeap.. what is u'r encryption ?

TorGuard: its AEA256 bit for OpenVPN military grade the best encryption can offer!

Can I help you with anything else?

Client: on PrivateInternetAccess site I can test the speed of the servers.. but haven't found how to do that on u'r site.. pre-sub

TorGuard: at this moment, we are not offering any more our famous 24h free, no CC necessary accounts. sorry for that but the thing that we are offering is our famous money back guarantee that will serve you well during the first 30 days of the trial period, where you can test our services without worrying! give us a try, and you won't regret it
also, you can go to our store torguard.n…store/PrePaid-VPN-Service and get 24h account to test the service, for only 1$ - this is what I would recommend

TorGuard: and that site you mention, keep logs

they do not have ABSOLUTELY NO LOGS WHATSOEVER policy

like I said: they do not have ABSOLUTELY NO LOGS WHATSOEVER policy

Client: humn... intersting..

u do have the no logs on both ends right..

TorGuard: no logs on our side

thats the only side where logs could be kept

PIA keep logs in hashed form though, asked them directly about that

we do not encrypt your IP or do anything with it, nor do we store it

not even for 1ms
How do u handle u'r billing side & service side ??? Do u log who is log in at any time... ???

As for the 3 connections... Please increase this to 5.... If the logging part is false... It would make u'r service perfect... Router + Cell 1 when away from router + Cell 2 when way from router + Tablet way from router + laptop when away from router.... Would suck to have to open the cellphone to unencrypted traffic if one want's to use a bigger screen away from the router...

Also is there a way to mail in cash & a email address to pay & sub on this deal... Bitcoins are all over the place in price and hard to get for a Bitcoin noob anonymously... We don't mind waiting to open an account locked at this price till u receive the payment...

Hope to hear u'r responses... thanks for coming here to chat with us...

PS. Added the beginning of the conversation... New ?... What is the highest encryption that PIA uses ???

I am still trying to find the best possible VPN service for myself... As u can tell I research till there is no ? of what I am buying... Done editing for clarity... Will await u'r response... Please be specific...

I've been using PIA to tether my phone without my carrier getting their panties in a bunch for the past few months. Speeds are probably capped by my phones connection rather than by PIA servers, but I've had no issues PIA at all.
I am thinking the same. So do u install PIA on your phone? and then all other devices connected will be auto vpn?

Quote from firebirdx01 View Post :
It's also helpful for public wifi spots- if you want to say sign on to your bank account and its unsecure- you need a VPN to prevent malicious users from intercepting your unsecured traffic (which can contain your password). So it has legitimate uses in preventing identity theft- and anyone who has been a victim of that- knows its no joke. The only catch is that -you have to trust the VPN as they route all your traffic.
very true, I understand that there a lot of legitimate uses for a VPN, thanks for clarifying that all VPN traffic is not meant to do illegal activity Smilie

I just want to clarify: When the included VPN desktop client is *not* running, my connection is 100% stock through my own home network and ISP, right? I'd like to use VPN in certain occasions, but do not want any overhead from the software when I absolutely don't want the VPN running, such as online gaming.

Right... But if one torrent's or not thru VPN... When u'r paying for a service... U want it to do something that the free VPN/Proxie options do not... Speed is one of the biggest things... But as much anonymity specially from the the VPN provider is another one... How fast do u think a VPN provider can come up with non existing logs once a Gov./lawyers/IRS/Cop's wanting DNA... LMAOMadLMAO starts to play hardball with their $$$....

Great questions, please keep them coming!

So just to clarify - If I signed up during the last $32 deal, it will autorenew in a year for $32 instead of the full price? Thanks, PIA...

Yes, but performance will be dependent upon your smart phone.

We do not log - and the US is one of the few countries where you do not have to log.

We do not log, in hash form or otherwise. It appears the other service is making false claims...

The 3 device limit is there for now but may change. I have forwarded the request on. Smilie

You can buy bitcoins in cash and the price has been pretty stable lately. Right now, cash is not an option but, I will forward this request on as well!

You can do that - performance will vary depending on the phone.

Yes, this is true. However, in this case, then, do not enable VPN kill switch.


Please keep the questions coming!! Smilie

Thanks, PIA, now I'm glad that I gave you good reviews. Smilie

Do you have a referral program, by the way? I've sent a few people your way, but couldn't find anything online.

This adds privacy to your internet access (internet access not included)
Quote from Snoopy2gos View Post :
Hi, This isn't an internet service, this is access to a VPN [wikipedia.org]

Some people use it for torrenting illegal files, others use them to bypass location restrictions on certain web applications (NetFlix, Hulu, MLB.Tv) and some people in countries who have web restrictions will use VPNs to read websites that have been blocked by ISP's.
Thank you both. Like I said, I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to this stuff. Now, I'm a little less so Wink .

Your company came recommended from Lifehacker. I appreciate you coming here to answer questions personally.

I had skipped your last promotion because I'm using StrongVPN and my subscription wasn't close to ending, but now it's ending in a few months. Will you have a new promotion soon or can you create a coupon for me that I can apply when my current VPN subscription ends? And are there student discounts too? Thanks.

I signed up earlier this year and like the service so far. Currently I use it on my laptop using the Windows client and on my unraid server using a plugin. I'd like to lock into this price point with an extension and sign up for autorenewal with cash. Waiting to hear back ...
