Yes, unless your school also blocks VPNs.
You could also set the PIA client to use TCP port 80 or 443 (standard web ports). It's doubtful those would be blocked or inspected to the point they know it's a VPN service.

this is why I choose a PC over a Mac.
That's an oddly specific reason, especially considering all the other reasons one could give to choose one or the other. Wink

And yes they send you the password unencrypted, If they would encrypt it, how would you decrypt it hmm? They would have to send the encryption key to decrypt it, which in sense is still sending it clear text.

Also, you can just change the password, stop being lazy. If you really use a password that is automatically generated for you for a NEW ACCOUNT, you don't deserve to use a VPN.

Oh, and since you sound very misinformed, Outlook (Microsoft) , Gmail (Google) and Yahoo email services emails, attachments, text you name it, is now all sent encrypted through POP3, IMAP servers, Yahoo is confirmed 2048 Bit encryption keys.
Wouldn't it be much safer to have a user choose there own details rather than sending in clear readable text ? i mean the user would remember that a little better don't you think ? So whats to say its not stored in clear text either ?

And not everyone uses Gmail/Yahoo or Outlook...

For a privacy company clear text user/passes are not good!

Yes it would be safer, but then they gotta run a full authentication system with a key, generating a key per user and email. It varies per system and what they want to do Network Security wise

Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook (Hotmail), AOL (Who even uses that lmao) and which ever other services that are free, most have implemented full encryptions streams end to end due to the big outlash of the NSA and PRISM. Even if you wanna go all out, run your own server and encrypt your emails, or use PGP communications with public/private keys.

Whenever you send a user an email, all the SSL does is prevent man in the middle attacks - there are many ways to get user info, key loggers on the users own computer/trojan/rootkits you name it that can pull data from pretty much anywhere from within there own computer/network. There own email could have already been compromised for all they know.

Thats why its always better to have the user choose it rather than send it as not everyone uses the 2 factor auth system some services now offer.

PIA run a static key and there CA - theres no generating of individual user keys from what i have seen and security wise, you have no idea how it really works - but after there forum was hacked and DB stolen - would you trust them after this ? for a so called top end privacy company you would expect them to be on top of there security at all times.

And after there *automated* support responses (Pre-defined replies) when some had absolutely no relevance to what i was asking, i left. Between this and the security breach, there really is no going back.

Hey bud, I'm in no way of coming off and saying PIA is the greatest thing since slice bread, every company has their faults, and I'm not saying they are the only ones customers should go to.

I'm curious myself, which service are you using? If you could PM me it or post in the reply, I just don't want this topic to get de-railed and start another borderline opinionated conversation.

Speaking of 2factor, I use 2factor my own self to whomever has it available which is a great system imo, quite easy to implement, but not many companies want to get it going.

Encryption wise, I was just speaking in terms of the popular email services to the other user above which I forget who was talking about insecure email iirc (Sorry I didn't open up another thread to check, just going off my memory)

I did notice the static key, and nothing is dynamic. Only thing that is dynamic is the server IP's per region... in which a lot of customers are using PIA for spamming, and other activities which got some of the IP ranges banned (For example I watch twitch.tv and my ISP throttles, so I use the VPN to un-throttle, but some of the PIA IP's have been banned due to spam etc)

There is a post in PIA forum showing you how to setup the proxy connection for uTorrent, try that to see if it helps. Depending on your hardware, that could be your issue but you'd have to fork out some green to get a nice ones just for testing. I've tried default settings and also settings people have posted on forums and youtube. One thing I did forget was to portforward the port used by uTorrent. Make sure you have that setup on your router. That did make a difference.

I've never used Peerblock before but it could be used as another layer of security for you. Look through their forums to see if you can find anything on it or even file a ticket with them. Maybe they'll give you the run around that you won't need PeerBlock since you're using their software Big Grin.
Been meaning to post an update of my progress here. After looking over PIA's informative Client Support Area, I tried portforwarding the VPN also as per their instructions. THAT made a world of difference! I chose Toronto, Canada as the closet portforward option for me. I also adjusted my VPN's Data Encryption & Authentication settings to "None" since I don't think it's really necessary for torrenting and to improve speeds. I set Handshake at RSA-2048. After all of this, my speeds skyrocketed! I still have to set my uTorrent Bandwidth Maximum Upload Rate at "10." Anything more and it craps out the DLink modem/router. However, I can set my Maximum Download Rate at "0" (unlimited), Maximum Number Of Connections at "500" and Maximum Number Of Connected Peers Per Torrent at "100." I'm glad I have this VPN now, connecting is usually fast and it doesn't seem to slow down my regular internet surfing either, sometimes it seems faster! Anyways, I hope this helps someone out there in SD-land who might be having problems.

Anyone know if they plan on running this deal again anytime soon?

Could use a little price break from their regular rates if possible.

Looks like there was a Labor Day promotion last year, so perhaps this will pop up again in a few days.

I hope so. I was hoping that there would have been a "back to school" sale over the last couple weeks. My PIA 1-year membership just expired a couple months ago and I need to renew. I got a new CC since, and want to lock in at a lower annual rate (was on the normal rate before). Smilie
