Yes, because setting up a VPN on your router protects your whole network and stops anyone from snooping on your connection, whatever device you’re using.

Even devices that don’t normally support VPNs will benefit from military-grade VPN encryption, secure VPN protocols, and a 100% effective Kill Switch. Putting a VPN on your router also stops your ISP intentionally slowing down your traffic when you connect to streaming services, because it can’t see what you’re doing online.

That means you can have the best of both worlds, and never need to disconnect your VPN to access local sites and services.

If you have a VPN-compatible router, start by subscribing to PIA. Then, depending on your router model, you’ll need to follow our detailed installation guide. Once you’re finished, connect to a server and enjoy our VPN protection and blazing-fast connection speeds on every device on your network.

Yes, FlashRouters have VPNs built-in. If you don’t have one, we recommend getting one of their VPN routers with PIA pre-installed — especially if you’ve never flashed a router yourself before.
