A VPN router enables you to configure PIA’s VPN on your entire home or office network at once. This ensures that all internet traffic passing through the router — from any connected device — is automatically routed through the secure, encrypted VPN tunnel.
First, you’ll need a PIA VPN subscription, then you can install PIA on your router.

A VPN router is the same as the router you use at home to connect to your broadband internet service, only it has VPN software installed on it. This means you don’t have to install a VPN on your computers, smartphones, or smart TVs because your connection is protected at the network level.
First, you need to make sure your router is compatible with VPN software. Installing the software can be difficult, and it may require some technical knowledge. You can install PIA on your supported router by following the instructions here. For most users, we recommend FlashRouters. FlashRouters are designed to be used with VPN software, and they are easy to set up with no technical knowledge required.
Any router you can install a VPN on will give you the same security benefits, because it’s the VPN, not the router, that protects your network. That said, we usually recommend FlashRouters to our users because they're simple to set up and use, and doing so requires no technical knowledge.
A VPN router works just like a normal VPN. You can choose from the same range of server locations, benefit from the same quality of data encryption, and take advantage of advanced features such as split tunneling and ad-blocking. The only difference is that the VPN is installed on your router instead of your computer, tablet, smartphone, or other connected device.
All VPNs slow your connection down to some extent, but installing the VPN to your router instead of your devices won’t affect your connection speed very much. PIA’s VPN is among the fastest available, with a NextGen server network that’s optimized for 10 Gbps connections (that’s fast!).
A VPN router protects absolutely any device connected to your network. If it has internet connectivity, it can be protected with a VPN router. This includes smart TVs, video game consoles, and IoT devices (like smart appliances, cameras, speakers, lightbulbs, and more).
