|kamaaina||Same here, I paid through Amazon payments, and they told me a few days ago it would renew at that rate. Got the same confirmation message as well.|

I hate to resurrect an old thread, but I was wondering if those who had this renew recently were charged the original 20% off rate for the second year, or was it the full price.
As far as I can tell, the site has no kind of admin center where you can view your renewal date, payment method, etic... maybe that's by design, but not very convenient.

1) log into your account through PIA and generate a proxy username and password
2) open utorrent and select preferences and then connections
3) look at PIA forums to find Proxy settings (its on front page of forums)
4) copy settings into utorrent with your generated username and password.
5) restart utorrent and you should be good to go.
now your browsers/apps use your regular connection and utorrent uses the VPN
SIDE NOTE: when doing this method you are just using another IP to send data through and not actually encrypting it, so you would also want to select the "encrypt data" option in utorrent as well. (this is what i have gathered form the forums)
this is also secure in the sense that, if the proxy has issues, utorrent will disconnect, vs if you use the client and the vpn drops, utorrent may still run. though people have fixes for that as well. (setting VPN and a public network, and your internet as private, then allowing utorrent to only run on the public network)
also, some people are extra secure and run utorrent with the proxy settings while also using the VPN.

But yeah, the concept of daisy chains is basically a VPN into a VPN, kind of like Inception (dream within a dream).
However, for the truly paranoid, you're still only safe if all of the VPNs you use don't track. But if you take this statement to be true, then you'd probably be good with just 1 VPN in the first place lol.

Someone said something about how VPNs aren't entirely anonymous since it will log the IP the VPN uses. Then someone said to daisy chain it to get around that. Then someone asked him to explain that. Then you used the LMGTFY on him.
I think the whole idea might be to VPN into a VPN into a VPN.... and then your IP might sort of kind of be masked by all that VPNing.

I don't even remember what the post was about or what scenario you're referring to so I don't know how it's supposed to help either.
