Protect Yourself Against Cyberattacks and Snoops With the Best UK VPN

Reasons to Use a VPN in the UK

The UK is famous for many things: the royal family, fish and chips, and eroding your right to privacy. Recently, UK authorities have ramped up their online surveillance efforts, investing in new spyware systems and adjusting laws to gain even more power to record your online activity.

Using a VPN is the easiest way to secure your traffic and bypass government surveillance in one tap. Our advanced VPN encryption also helps you avoid cyber attacks, especially on public Wi-Fi networks.

Traveling abroad? Use PIA VPN to change your IP address to one from the UK and access exclusive British platforms like BBC iPlayer, Channel 4, and ITV from anywhere in the world.

Get a Fast, Stable Connection

Get a Fast, Stable Connection

Using just any old VPN is likely to slow you down and cause lag or buffering. PIA VPN has 10-Gbps servers in Manchester, Southampton, and London, which have been optimized for the fastest speeds. Connect in no time and forget about poor load times, even during peak hours. Stream the Premier League in UHD, or game as much as you like — we’ll never limit your bandwidth or cap your usage.

Wipe Your Tracks

A VPN may hide your online activity, but did you know it can also log it? Your VPN provider could easily store or even share your browsing activity. PIA is different. When we say we’re a No Logs VPN, we mean it. Our RAM-only servers automatically delete your session history, so nothing remains. We’ve developed all our systems to make it impossible for us to collect your search history.

Wipe Your Tracks
Rely on Powerful Security

Rely on Powerful Security

What you do online is public knowledge. ISPs, advertisers, and cybercriminals can track your activity or intercept your sensitive information. Luckily, you can use PIA VPN to browse with peace of mind. In seconds, our app covers your traffic with military-grade encryption, while MACE blocks trackers, malware, and malicious websites. Additionally, our integrated Kill Switch will kick in on spotty Wi-Fi to prevent any data leaks.

Keep Calm and Stay British

Platforms like Channel 4 and ITV only work in the UK, which means you won’t be able to follow some of your favorite shows when you travel abroad. Don’t miss Doctor Who just because you’re out of town. Connect to one of our servers in the UK and stream local news, sports, and series as if you never left. We also have streaming-optimized servers that work with a wide range of platforms, including Netflix UK and BBC iPlayer.

Shop Safely and Save Money

Public Wi-Fi is super convenient when shopping — but it can be dangerous. Cybercriminals can intercept your traffic, hijack your session, or steal your passwords and credit card details.

Secure your connection with PIA VPN and defend against cyber fraud. You can also save money on flights, car rentals, and products. Simply change your IP address to almost anywhere in the world and compare prices between regions before you buy.

Can I Use a Free VPN to Get a USA IP Address?

Yes, you can use a free VPN to get a UK IP address, but it’s a bad idea.

Privacy isn’t a priority for many free VPNs and some will even sell your data to third parties. Connection speeds also often take a knock when you connect to free VPNs, making them useless for catching up on Eastenders.

By contrast, PIA offers industry-leading privacy protection, blazing-fast connection speeds, and unlimited VPN bandwidth. The result: unbeatable privacy, security, and freedom online.


It depends on your needs, but when it comes to privacy, speed, and value for money, PIA VPN can’t be beaten. Connect to servers in London, Manchester and Southampton in a single click and get a secure UK IP address. Stream sports and films more securely on BBC iPlayer, ITVX, More4, and other UK streaming services.

A UK IP address is a series of numbers that identifies an internet-connected device as being located within the UK. You’ll need one if you want to unblock websites that are restricted to connections coming from outside of the UK. Connect to PIA VPN servers in London, Manchester, and Southampton to instantly get a UK IP address and start browsing UK websites.

Yes, using a VPN to secure your data and hide your IP address is perfectly legal in the UK. However, using a VPN to do anything illegal is still illegal, and we don’t advocate breaking the law, with or without a VPN.

A UK VPN can cost anywhere from £0 to around £15 per month. Free VPNs can be tempting, but offer inadequate privacy. Get premium protection at an affordable price when you choose PIA VPN. Subscribe from as little as per month to get a UK IP address anytime, with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Laws in place in the UK force ISPs to store and disclose a citizen’s online history on request. That means the government can access your browsing history at any time unless you protect yourself.

The UK is also part of the 5 Eyes Alliance, a group of countries that monitor citizens' online activity and share information. PIA VPN encrypts your internet data, so it can’t be read by your ISP or government. Also, our strict No Logs policy means we’ll never collect or store any of your usage data. If the authorities ask us for your data, we'll have nothing to give them.

Yes. PIA has servers in London, Southampton, and Manchester. Simply connect to any of our VPN servers to instantly hide your location and online activity. In addition to our UK servers, we also have servers in 91 countries worldwide. Connect to an overseas server to explore local web content in other regions, and enjoy total freedom online.

Absolutely. Just download VPN and connect to a server in one of PIA’s three UK locations to get a secure local IP address. UK sites will only see your new UK IP address and your true location will be hidden. Cybercriminals, advertisers, or other third parties won’t be able to track you, so you can enjoy privacy and security online. It’s a win-win.

You can, but it’s not a very good idea. Free VPNs are usually slow, they lack security features, and often sell your usage information to cover their costs — which defeats the point of using a VPN! In contrast, PIA offers blazing-fast connection speeds, a strict No Logs policy, and a comprehensive range of advanced VPN features to protect your security, identity, and freedom online.

Not by itself, no. Your internet traffic still has to pass through your ISP's network before it reaches PIA, so you need strong VPN encryption to make your data unreadable. PIA offers military-grade 256-bit AES encryption to keep your data safe from snooping ISPs. We also have a strict No Logs policy, which means we’ll never record or store any data about your VPN usage.

Absolutely. PIA offers Dedicated IP addresses in the UK, the US, Australia, Germany, and Canada. Our Dedicated IP servers are optimized for speeds of up to 10 Mbps and they use clean, reliable IP addresses. IPs are assigned using a fully anonymous token-based system, which means not even we can associate your Dedicated IP to your actual IP or PIA user account.
