VPNs reroute your traffic through an encrypted tunnel to another server, acting as an intermediary between your internet service provider (ISP) and your intended online destination. When you do this, your ISP or network admin can't log or store any of your browsing data.
When you route your data through a secure, encrypted VPN tunnel, it becomes unreadable and untraceable by ISPs, network administrators, and government censors. And it makes many cyber attacks exponentially harder to achieve.
Some Wi-Fi networks restrict your access to streaming content to save bandwidth. PIA lets you bypass network blocks and watch the content you want, when you want. Simply connect to one of our 154 global server locations to change your virtual location and bypass network restrictions.

A virtual private network (VPN) is a network of servers that encrypts your internet traffic and conceals your location to give you greater security and freedom online. When you connect to a VPN server, your IP address is replaced by one belonging to the VPN server. This allows you to change your virtual location, meaning you can protect yourself against IP-based tracking.
Connecting to a VPN also means your data will be encrypted, making it invisible to your internet service provider (ISP), network administrator, or government censor.
When you connect to a VPN, your internet traffic is routed through a secure, encrypted tunnel. That way you're protected from certain “man-in-the-middle" hacking attacks and other cybercrimes. This is particularly useful if you use unsecured public WiFi.
It’s important to note that not all VPN services offer the same privacy protection as PIA. For example, some VPNs log and even sell user data. Our strict No Logs policy ensures we never record any of your traffic history.
Yes. VPNs are legal almost everywhere. Unfortunately, some countries such as China, Russia, Belarus, and North Korea only allow citizens to use state-approved VPN services. Using VPN encryption to protect your digital privacy and online freedom is your right as an internet user.
For starters, all our VPN apps are 100% open source, meaning our source code is completely transparent and available to the public — something that very few VPN services do.
