Local traffic and internet traffic


Does PIA send local network traffic via the vpn?

Im curious to if it sends everything through the vpn from my windows 10 pc on ignores 192.168 traffic and lets it through the normal interface.


  • Hey @u173487

    No, PIA will only encrypt what goes through the VPN tunnel as it connects to your ISP.  

    Only tunneled VPN traffic is encrypted, local network traffic will not be encrypted/protected. 

    You can read more about how our VPN works here

    Please let me know if you have any other questions :) 
  • Thanks @PIAAustin,

    I missed the I in PIA there,
