Android - Installing the PIA APK File


In the case where users want to use MACE (not available in the Google Play Store version), we recommend downloading the APK version of the PIA Android App. Use the instructions below:

Step 1: Download App APK File

Navigate to the Download page on our website and tap the Download APK (advanced) link

Step 2: Download Permissions

After selecting the Download link, the installer will ask permission to download the APK, select Download to continue

Step 3: Install App

Your device will then ask if you want to install the application, tap Install

Step 4: Open Application

Once the app has finished installing, tap Open to launch the PIA app

Congratulations! The app should now be installed. For more information on how to connect and how the app works, navigate to the Understanding the Application Settings guide here.

If the APK downloader does not initiate installation you will likely need to allow installation from an unknown source. For instructions on how to Install the application APK File from an unknown source please review this guide here.
