Most internet service providers (ISPs) throttle connection speeds if they see you connecting to a gaming-related website or app. But a VPN encrypts your traffic, meaning your ISP is unable to see where you're connecting, making them much less likely to throttle your connection speeds.
Change your virtual location to access geo-locked games, features, or in-game content — or change your location to take advantage of cheaper prices somewhere else in the world. With servers in 84 countries, our VPN makes it simple to game across borders.
A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a common tactic used by gamers to overwhelm an opponent's network, slowing them down and freezing them out of a game. PIA's VPN protects against DDoS attacks by giving you a new IP address and receiving the brunt of the attack with our state-of-the-art NextGen server infrastructure.
Get a unique IP address that only you can use. This is great if you want all the benefits of a VPN — like accessing restricted content and hiding online activity — but with fewer CAPTCHAs and more stability when doing things like online gaming.
One PIA VPN subscription covers 10 devices, so you can stay protected wherever you are.

Yes, and there are several reasons why: First, they overcome most throttling by your internet service provider (ISP), making your connection speeds faster. Second, they protect against DDoS and other cyber attacks that can damage and threaten your network. Third, they allow you to change your virtual location to access geo-restricted gaming content. And fourth, they're great for privacy — you don't need your ISP or network admin knowing what websites you're connecting to, and you don't need the websites you're connecting to knowing your physical location.
Sometimes your ISP will throttle your connection speeds due to excessive streaming or gaming. But by filtering your data through PIA’s VPN servers, your data is securely encrypted and concealed from ISPs or network administrators. This means that when you game, your ISP cannot detect what you’re doing online, and therefore they won’t throttle your connection speeds.
