Private Internet Access is committed to privacy, does not log and uses shared IPs. The US is one of the only countries without a mandatory data logging requirement:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tel...ted_States

Private Internet Access was rated 4.5 out of 5 Stars by PC Magazine and is PC Magazine's Editor's Choice VPN service provider.




The speeds and reliability and support is good for the money.
But they are registered in the USA so this 'we don't log or share things' talk is hogwash. Any VPN provider in the USA has an obligation to work with the authorities (the Patriot Act and/or NSA PRISM) so this is as anonymous as HMA (non-existent).

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.

For those of use still trying to pay with Anonymous Bitcoins... or as Anonymous as possible... There is a good recent link that Zabeer123 shared with us in the thread... This is a step-by-step guide to creating an anonymous wallet for what ever reason... There is also an option to pay with a one time gift card....

Two Mostly Somewhat anonymous Payment Options


** ALWAYS PAY CASH FOR EITHER OPTION / DO NOT USE SAVINGS CARDS IF BUYING @ A GROCERY STORE/CVS/WALGREEN's or Other / DO NOT ASK A BUSINESS HOW LONG THEY SAVE THEIR SECURITY FOOTAGE OR U'LL FLAG U'RSELF **


1st - BitCoins -
A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Anonymous Wallet for Covert Practices [reddit.com]

Key quote/point of tutorial below (U'll still be on camera where ever u end up doing the exchange) Read & Read & Read the tutorial until u know what u are doing...
Quote :
Another great idea is to use the localbitcoins website; meet with a seller locally; pay cash and GTFO.
U can also take a chance & use a local BitCoin business found on Craigslist... Just make sure they have a physical business location... Like a cellphone store or something else.... U will be on camera at said location but it should lower the chance of getting ripped-off... And after 30-90 days or even less... Said business would probably overwrite u'r mug off their security system... Always change u'r BitCoin Wallets address for each transaction to avoid linkage...

PROS

- As anonymous as u can theoretical get
- Once you learn how to do it, U can replicate it for next time
- Should cost about 3%-7% above MT.Gox average price which should be less then $4.95 per transaction on smaller amounts of $75...

CONS

- U still have to meet some one in public or at their business.
- U'll still be on camera at Star-bucks or at a business
- U are trusting a stranger
- It cost money to wash u'r BitCoins
- Value of BitCoins can fluctuate
- Never use u'r homes Wifi to purchase or clean BitCoins. U'll have to drive to a Library or Starbucks...


2nd - Credit Card Gift Cards -
You can also pay with a CC Gift Card... They are available from different companies from different retailers... Get one that is not re-loadable but that you can add an exact amount at purchase time... Most run about $4.95 per GC... That way u pay the amount needed + $4.95... Call ahead to make sure the GC u are looking for is available where u plan to purchase... Choose a location where u don't normally go to... Wear a hat/cap & shades... Make sure u grab the right GC & that u add the right amount... Once activated/purchaed u probably can't change the balance... Go to an out of place retailer & not to a mall... Gas station stores are probably u'r best bet... Most of this info is part of different Blog posts old & more recent that when combine can give u the best option in u'r area & case... I've included links to said Blog posts... I included a hint to the best CC Gift Card... Said CC Gift Card will either not require any online registration or the only info they will request is a random ZipCode u will need to remember... Always use Tor & TorEmail when dealing with registration of u'r choice of CC Gift Card's... If possible use a public Wifi when doing said registration... Always use bogus info when registering said CC GC.... Also always write down the info u use for said registrations... Never use u'r CC GC at more then one service or purchase... But if u do... Only pay for the same service... NEVER use the CC GC on different services or u'll create linkage... CC GC do come with FEE's for u'r balance... Usually said fees don't start until 7 months or longer... So depending on how much $$ u add to u'r card & how long u plan to hold said CC GC... Be aware of how much extra it will cost u.... U will find the best option for u by reading all the links below...

Anonymous Credit/Debit Cards [theprivacyguy.com]

Privacy Through Prepaid Credit Cards [snarfed.org]


PROS

- Theoretical a lot more anonymous then u'r Paypal, Visa, MasterCard... etc...
- Much easier to purchase then BitCoins...
- Easy to purchase if you do u'r homework...
- U can "cook" your card by waiting 30-90 days before using it to make sure the video footage of u buying has been written over...
- If u choose the right GC... It will probably be ready to go within 24 hours of purchase or the only info u will need to register online will be a random ZipCode... Don't forget what random Zipcode used...
- $5 per GC for possible anonymity


CONS

- Theoretical not as anonymous as BitCoins...
- Say Cheese... U'r on camera for as long as the retail location keeps their security video
- The bigger retailer u go to the longer u will be on camera purchasing the GC...
- GC's can incrue fees after a certain amount of months... 7 months, 12 months... Read the back of the GC before buying it...
- U might have to register the GC with bogus info online(Most non-refillable cards can be registered with bogus info... Write down what u use).... Use Tor & TorEmail for anything related to the GC & if possible don't do it at home...
- Re-using the GC negates any anonymity, So get as close to the amount u need... In this case $32...
- Using a GC for something that needs actually shipping to any address negates any anonymity too...
- $5 per GC for possible anonymity...

READ, READ, & READ & then READ some more... I think both of this payment options are worth the hassle to add a layer or two of anonymity when purchasing a VPN or other online service...

Thanks to all the Slick Dealer's that help us combine this info....

Please correct me if I am wrong ...

PIA's service is $40 per year. You are waiting for a "flash sale" that will effectively save you $8?

If I am incorrect please forgive ... but you are waiting to save $8? Damn, and I thought that I was cheap!
If you looked up 4 posts you would have seen the same question and answer....

PMed PIA, but no response. Will sign up for a year if that flash sale is actually back on! Please update if any of you hear back from them?
Thanks... If I understood the sales chat dept. over at PIA correctly... PIA does not control this sale... So it must be a SD base resale 20% discount sale... Some one in charge of finding sales here at SD arranged this discount & they control when it is available... So I guess the next step is to find out who at SD can return it for a few days...

Well for us that are going to be using a one time payment Credit Card gift card we are adding $5 to the amount we are paying... So it would cost us $45 @ regular price... I myself bought a gift card for $32+$5 fee on the same day the sale expired... So I am stuck with $32 amount on the card & plan to wait till that price is available again... The good thing is that the longer I wait the less days are left before the security camera video gets deleted where I purchased it... I hope...

Exactly... It's not the price but the principle of the thing...

If SD controls the PIA sales here... It means we have been PM'ng the wrong people... PIA account is just a PIA FAQ account for us... But the two posters of the original & second deals... Specially oFlamingo & Brisar would know more about how to get this deal back on.... Don't PM'd them till I hear from them...

K, guyz... Got a response... Our request for the deal has been noted & we need to sit tight... While they work on it... So if u haven't line up BitCoins or a $32 gift card... I would start looking into that... U can see how to get a one time use gift card on a prior post & Wiki...

So although there are no guarantees how soon we will get the sale... I am hopping it is in a much shorter cycle then the 2 months in the past... I believe the right people are aware of our request & now all that's left for us to do is line up our $$$ & keep an eye out for the next sale post... Thanks for all u folks that have helped...

They seem to be over due for the promotion... Usually it's been an every other Month thing... Maybe me requesting a flash sale over a month ago slowed down the return of it... Or maybe PIA is getting ready to go out of business thanks to the NSA...Wink

Not I am not even sure I want it or not....

Been a long time for a deal from Private Internet Access it seems. I signed for their monthly service to try, and am happy so want to switch to a full year plan before my second month gets charged. A nice deal would be good also.
