Description

Private Internet Access VPN Protect your privacy with Private Internet Access®, the world's leading VPN service for iOS users on iPhone and iPad. Private Internet Access®, or PIA, enables users to encrypt their network traffic and stay protected when online with our proxy servers. Add privacy and security to private and public networks when you browse the Internet and use WiFi, whether connected to a hotspot or at home. High speeds, unlimited bandwidth, connect with 5 devices simultaneously (smartphones, tablets, computers), no traffic logs, and 24/7 professional, native English speaking customer support. WHY USE VPN FROM PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS®? • Low price. $3.33 per month if you purchase a yearly account ($39.99/year) or $6.99 on a monthly basis. • Reliable and trusted VPN provider since 2010 with a proven no log policy. • Privacy is our Policy. Here at PIA, we not only provide a great VPN service at a low price, but we also support organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, FightForTheFuture, Creative Commons, Open Rights Group, Index on Censorship, freenode, Wireguard, Arch Linux, and many others. We respect your privacy and anonymity. BY USING VPN FROM PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS®, YOU GET: • IP Cloaking. Your IP address will be changed to a Private Internet Access IP address to hide your identity and location. Hide your IP address to stop data trackers, snoopers, and hackers from tracking your browsing and search activity. • Data Encryption. Encrypt your internet traffic with our VPN proxy. Our trusted online privacy service creates several security layers which keep you anonymous and prevent access to your data. It’s time to change your WiFi habits. Don’t use WiFi without our secure VPN to proxy your internet traffic! WiFi Security. With WPA and WPA2 now kracked, you need a VPN to protect your WiFi everywhere - not just in hotspots, coffee shops, cafes, hotels, and airports. If you use WiFi hotspots without encryption, your data can be seen, blocked, throttled, censored, or otherwise changed. • Content Blocker. The Safari Content Blocker blocks ads, trackers, and malware while browsing with Safari. WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS THINK? “Firstly, the company is second to none in terms of support, troubleshooting, and individualized assistance. Their nodes and hubs are top speed. Their client is streamlined and has a tremendous ease of use.” JAYDLUV, 10/10/2017 “This is my go to app for VPN. Been using Windows version for years and the iPad version is great.” Pkcarreon, 09/18/2017 “No hiccups, no crashes or anything. It just works great. Bear in mind you have to subscribe to the service for this to work. I highly recommend it.” Scott Loflin, 09/15/2017 “Simple and solid. No issues even when traveling.” Joe1134206, 09/8/2017 “Love it. Feel safer when browsing the internet.” Cachuco, 08/7/2017 “Hard to find a nit with this app. (...) The iOS app allows a quicker toggle on/off than digging into settings, for VPN hostile iOS apps like Pandora and Netflix. I like PIA’s value for the money, and I have not had any trouble whatsoever with the iOS app. I recommend this app, and PIA, as one of your layers of online security.” DB Associates, 01/27/2017 “I did my homework, reviewing many VPN services. PIA was among the most economical, plenty of simultaneous connections and more than enough servers and services. (...) The speed is more than I hoped for. I can stream all YouTube videos. HD quality is superb with no buffering. I am happy to have this extra security on all our devices. My wife could not tell the difference after I installed it on her PC. I think I paid $39.99/year. What a bargain!” Helmut, 06/20/2016 GDPR compatibility This application only sends username and encrypted passwords to our servers as part of using this app. During signups, we also collect user's email. We do not collect and/or store any other user information.

  • Massive battery drain

    In the past 24 hours: 1 min on screen (no background activity listed), but 20% battery use. Past 2 days: 1 min on screen, but 39% battery use. Also, the location list hasn’t been showing ping times for most locations lately (none in the US), and when I checked just now, it wasn’t showing ping times for any location. My previous review (below) still applies, although this is happening less often now. Previous review: Regularly loses VPN IP, stalls “Public IP” spinning-wheel error still exists. If my internet connection isn’t working, when I check the PIA app, it sometimes says that everything is fine, but if I quit and restart the app, it shows that it’s connected but now says “IP Resolving”. Seemingly there is a UI bug that prevents it from updating its status even though the status has changed. Disconnect and connect, and then everything is fine for a while. Also, why do I have to open the app to get it to resolve a connection error at all? It should do all of this in the background on its own…
  • I would give it zero star if I could

  • Connection is sketchy

    Connection is sketchy and not very reliable. It slows down connections and sometimes I have to disconnect to use my phone properly.
  • Love PIA - except on iOS!

    I’ve been a happy customer of PIA for a while now and am happy with their VPN service on my computers. I also have PIA for Android installed on my work phone and it works just fine. But I’ve encountered nothing but issues with their iOS app and finally give up. I’ve spent more of my life the last few months staring at a spinning wheel at the top left of my iPhone screen (while it stays hung up), toggling WiFi and data settings, and cussing at the thing. Guess I’ll look elsewhere for a VPN service to use on my iPhone. Disappointed with PIA.
  • Working great, Responsive updates/features! :)

    PIA VPN has been working great on my iPhone SE lately and though initially frustrated, the PIA support and outreach has been very admirable! They helped me adjust beyond “IPSEC” to make the VPN work (however better debugging and troubleshooting info to users would help, perhaps a “I’m not a dumb user - tell me what really failed” versus simply never connecting, apparently IPSEC was blocked) and added features to the iPhone app for adjusting VPN connection settings. I have been able to connect to public and other WiFi locations with a secure VPN now easily which is great! Orig comment: Latest version doesn’t work, why pay for service? I paid for PIA months ago and it works fine on my Win laptop and Android, however this never worked on my iPhone - login fine, fails to connect to VPN!?! Tech support asked me to change DNS servers, like that would make a difference when my other devices on the same network use the same DNS servers?!? (PS: No it did not)
  • No Customer Support with a live person

    This might be a good system, however once you need get in touch with them it is impossible. I have tried several attempts in the last 3 days to unlocked my account. No password reset has worked, still waiting on an open tickets, no response in 3 days; now that I have to go back home, I was unable to connect to the free WiFi in my hotel for fear of join to an unsecured network. Choose another company with better customer service. I finally had to join to a different service.

  • Version 2.6 problems

    Continuous problem with server not found error in google news and search in iOS 11.4 devices. Seems to drop server and takes forever to reconnect … actual more than a minute. Doesn’t handle transition between WiFi and LTE very well. Need to manually reconnect. These issues started with version 2.6.
