PIA Adds Ad Blocker: Introducing Private Internet Access MACE™
July 8th, 2016: Private Internet Access MACE™ is a new feature that block ads, trackers and malware. Private Internet Access (PIA) has always sought to provide the most privacy-preserving solutions for customers using the PIA desktop client. After all, “Privacy is our Policy.” Online advertising is often a free-for-all where the end user loses. That’s why Private Internet Access created a VPN service with ad blocking features to keep users safe on Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.
Private Internet Access MACE™ blocks ads, trackers and malware
According to recent statistics, about 10% to 15% of internet users are currently using ad blockers. We believe this number should be a lot higher, and have doubled down on that belief with the release of MACE™. It is often hard for users to find the right ad blocker that works with their browser and is simple to use. Setting up an ad blocker at the network level requires even more technical expertise. Now customers will be able to use Private Internet Access MACE™ to block ads, trackers and malware on whatever browser they are using. To try out Private Internet Access MACE™, simply update the PIA client to v60.
