Rest assured that if your VPN connection drops unexpectedly, our tested and trusted kill switch will automatically and immediately block your internet connection preventing any data leaks. 

Powerful Encryption

Powerful encryption

Stick with our defaults, or optimize your VPN experience to your own personal needs. Configure your own encryption standards, data authentication algorithms, and handshake encryptions.

Split Tunneling VPN

Split Tunneling

You control your internet connection. Make your VPN experience automated and smooth by choosing which applications or IP addresses can bypass the VPN tunnel.

Dedicated IP VPN

Dedicated IP

PIA offers a Dedicated IP add-on. Using your very own anonymous static IP address gives you all the security, privacy, and freedom of a VPN with a more regular web browsing experience.

Private Internet Access also uses world-class, next-gen server infrastructure in 78 countries - meaning you get a secure, reliable VPN connection anytime, anywhere. PIA Virtual Private Network also works with all major streaming services so you have unrestricted access to all of your favorite sites and services. Plus, with only one Private Internet Access VPN subscription, you can connect unlimited devices and use up to 10 devices simultaneously.

PIA offers one of the best connection speeds out of any VPN provider thanks to our huge network of world-class servers all across the globe. If you feel like your connection isn't strong enough, you might be on a crowded server. Switching servers is easy and only takes a few seconds.

PIA works on all major devices and operating systems including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Android TV, iOS, and even routers.

A Dedicated IP is a unique internet protocol address assigned exclusively to you by a service like a VPN. Unlike a shared IP, which is assigned to many users, a Dedicated IP is unique to your account — no one else can use it — avoiding congestion and giving you better speeds, all while preserving the same security and anonymity of a traditional VPN.
