Private Internet Access Unblocked in Hong Kong

For the last several days, Private Internet Access servers have been blocked in Hong Kong. However, we are pleased to announce, that we have been able to successfully unblock our servers, and everything is working properly now.  To everyone in Hong Kong – stay strong, stay safe, and always use protection!

    So can you please explain who blocked your servers and why?

    this is odd timing. Can you provide more details on what’s transpired? If I were the Chinese government I would absolutely be interested in breaching your servers right now and then making them available in Hong Kong.

    Thanks, Mr Miller, for the good news. The chairperson of Hong Kong’s ISP industry body said earlier that there was no blocking and suggested that it could be a case of PIA’s own servers having problems. Were your services initially blocked by any Hong Kong ISPs which are now unblocked? Or was it indeed due to technical issues on your part? It would be great it you could kindly shed some light on this. Much appreciated. F.Wai, Hong Kong.

    We deserve an explanation as to the reason behind this. The blatantly false allegation was that this was government action and the ‘great firewall of china’ had come to Hong Kong. I expected better from PIA, and can no longer recommend your service to my fellow citizens in Hong Kong.

    Did you get unblocked or did you find another way around their firewall 🤔
