Frequently Asked Questions

Many ad blockers won’t block YouTube ads, but PIA’s built-in ad blocker blocks ads at the DNS level, including YouTube ads. 

Ad blockers are perfectly legal for personal use. However, internet service providers are generally prohibited by law from enabling network-wide ad blocking because this goes against copyright laws. 

Exactly what you’d expect it to. It identifies ads and stops them from appearing on your web pages, videos, and apps. PIA’s ad blocker also identifies and blocks trackers and malicious websites that may potentially infect your device with malware. PIA’s “MACE” works at the DNS level to prevent any unwanted ads or scripts from ever loading or making tracking requests.

Aside from the obvious benefits of not having to see annoying ads everywhere and protecting you from malicious sites, PIA is a VPN that hides your IP address and bypasses data-logging practices from you internet service provider.  For more info on what a VPN is, go here
