Why Should I Hide My IP Address?

On its own, an IP address is harmless. Every device has a public IP address. But advertisers, hackers, and authorities can use your IP for nefarious purposes, such as to:

  • Track your activity online
  • Gather and sell your personal information
  • Restrict your access to online content

Want To Know More?

PIA VPN connects to a remote server that conceals your real IP address and assigns you a new anonymous one, and encrypts your data. It acts as a buffer between your device and the website you're trying to connect to and offers extra protection and anonymity.

PIA’s most value-packed subscription comes out to only $2.69 per month. PIA offers the best VPN service at a significantly lower price than our competitors — and one subscription covers 10 devices.

An IP address is a necessary part of connecting to the internet. It’s a unique number linked to all of your online activity — including your device information, location, and more. This unique number provides a way for advertisers, hackers, and authorities can use your IP to track you online, gather and sell your personal information, or restrict your access to online content.

An IP address is necessary to connect to the internet, but it can also be used to track you online, as it is unique to your particular device. Advertisers, cybercriminals, and authorities can use your IP to keep tabs on you, gather and sell your personal information, or restrict your access to online content. For these reasons, it is considered a best practice of internet safety to hide your IP address, just as you would any other private information.

IP addresses are often closely tied to your geographical location. While an IP address won’t reveal the exact address of your home, it’s very easy to tell which country, state, city, or region you’re accessing the internet from. This is bad news for privacy, but good news for easily switching your IP to a new location.

Absolutely. You have a right to privacy online, and using PIA VPN to keep yourself secure and anonymous while browsing the web is perfectly legal in almost all jurisdictions. VPNs are legal in most countries worldwide except China, Russia, Belarus, North Korea, and other authoritarian regimes which only allow citizens to use state-approved VPN services.

Yes. Your real IP address is still protected when using a Dedicated IP. 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. So while a Dedicated IP is unique to only you, PIA keeps no record of which Dedicated IP belongs to which user — keeping you anonymous.
