Careful with credit card gift card (like Vanilla Visa Gift Card). PIA can't process gift credit cards reliably.

More Info on various services available (2013 edition), "VPN Services That Take Your Anonymity Seriously, 2013 Edition"

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)

uTorrent step-by-step instructions [lifehacker.com]

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.

I caught this deal a few months ago at the 1/yr $31.95 price. Highly recommend it, best VPN I've used so far. The others like HMA tend to have a lot of latency and really limit my connection speed, but with PIA, I barely even notice that I'm connected to a VPN.

Reliable worldwide servers and their customer service has been top-notch too. No negative experiences yet, but I wish the software was a bit more intuitive and had more options. All in all, worth every penny (and more).

This is a noob question. I am not VPN savvy. I know this pretty much anonymizes you on the internet, but will it also anonymize any sort of downloading/peer to peer activities?

Which software? From a glance it looks like it won't be running through my router? It says it has a 5 device limit. Is this going to be friendly in all environments? I would want to use it on Mac, windows, iOS, Android.

Absolutely, as long as you're running your peer to peer program through the VPN.

Generally, yes. I bind the connection directly to my localhost IP (adapter) so it's not thru the VPN.. but that's my personal choice.

But to answer your question, yes... it installs a totally different network adapter so everything you do via the internet goes thru that adapter and hence, the VPN (so long as you're connected to a VPN server, of course).

Surely someone else will weigh in on that question as well.
