Will PIA implement Wireguard VPN when finalized?

I've read lately about Wiregaurd VPN support in Docker containers, and many sites lauding it as a next-gen vpn protocol/stack. But, is the system really as viable as it is made out to be, and is it something PIA would consider implementing in the future?

    There is also something called "Hexa", although it appears to be proprietary and not open source.

    Hi PIAVipper,

    We are aware of Wireguard and we're discussing it internally. We would of course have to thoroughly vet and audit any new protocols/stacks to ensure the security and privacy of our customers.
  • Hi Jayson,

    Has there been any movement towards supporting Wireguard at PIA? I ask for us linux users who have renewals upcoming and are looking to move to an in-kernel solution.

  • @randomphish, we're still looking at this! While we don't have any plans for implementation in the immediate future, we did make a donation to help sponsor its development, and we'll continue to monitor it closely.

    I'd also like to request the implementation of WireGuard.
  • +1 on wire guard support.
  • Me too. It would be good to know a little more:
    -- Do you feel that WireGuard is at too early a stage of development to implement soon?
    -- If you were to decide to implement it, would it be Linux only? I believe WG has two 'flavours', the faster kernel-based one and a more general one.
    -- What about Linux-based routers?
  • +1

    Would love to see WG support
  • +1

    Wireguard would be an awesome feature.
    Just as an experimental option to advanced users.
  • I've added it to my list of requested features for customers.
  • As a long time PIA user I would love to have Wireguard as an option.

    Any update on this? Will we see it in a future release?
