Although quite different from a VPN, we provide a SOCKS5 Proxy with all accounts in the event users require this feature.
Our SOCKS5 Proxy is available at: proxy-nl.privateinternetaccess.com port 1080
You will require a different username and password to use the SOCKS5 proxy. These usernames and passwords are generated from the Client Control Panel.
- Log in to the Client Control Panel.
- Click Downloads and Scroll Down to VPN Settings and you will see the SOCKS section
- From here you can generate a Username starting with "x" and a random Password which will then be shown.
- You must use this username and password when connecting to the SOCKS5.
The application supports using a SOCKS5 proxy to connect to the VPN server. For more information about this new feature please review the following article here
