Best VPN I have ever used

I have tried a few different VPNs in my life so far… And private Internet access is not only the greatest VPN I have ever used, it is also one of the all-time best companies I have ever done business with. This is the most affordable VPN I have found on the market with some of the best speeds possibly out there… The best track record of no logs possible and the greatest selection of . different places to connect to around the world that I have used to date this far. I also really appreciate the 24 seven live chat help.

I was skeptical at first… And for a few weeks, I would send constant emails and chat with countless customer support agents on the website before making my final choice to leave my current VPN and make the switch… Let me tell you it was one of the best decisions I had made in 2022. Not only did they speeds match my own connection speed up to 99%. It allows me to stream from multiple multiple multiple. The 10 X connections is great for friends and family and the whole household… Computers, cell phones, tablets… Private Internet access pretty much has everything covered.

I honestly see myself with private Internet access for as long as I possibly can be. I’m contemplating and thinking about buying one or two more three-year subscription plans … merging them all together to top off to a near-10 year subscription plan… That is how impressed I am.

Excellent

Never had a problem. Has been my go to VPN for the past 2 years. Awesome service ever since 👌

Update: to all the negative reviews out there - there’s a ton of options to tweak to make the connection more stable. In fact, this is the only VPN service I know of that offers 3 different options (IPSec, IKEv2, AND OpenVPN). EXPERIMENT!! Not all Wi-Fi is the same. Try changing the connection options. IKEv2 is usually the most stable with OpenVPN coming in second. With the latter you can even change the port number. Maybe stop complaining and actually try to do some research. I’ve had this app for over 2 years and it’s never failed. And for those very strict environments there’s always the official OpenVPN app with preconfigured PIA profiles for literally any situation.
And before you ask - I was NOT paid to write this or am getting a discount. I’m just sick of reading reviews from people who seem like they’d rather complain than explore the myriad of connection options this offered by this service /rant

I used to love this product

I’ve been a subscriber to PIA for 2 or 3 years now and this year, I’m going to let my subscription lapse. I joined PIA because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews, and for a time, I was in agreement. The iOS, Windows, and macOS clients were all dead simple to use and I even had the private IP subscription to eliminate all the annoying CAPTCHAs sites like Google throw in your way. Now, however, it seems like 50% of the times the latency and speeds are completely unusable for even the most basic of web browsing, making it so that I have to turn the VPN off to even be able to browse the web sometimes—which defeats the entire purpose of paying for a VPN. Additionally, while the desktop apps have gone relatively undisturbed, the iOS app has gotten buggier over time. The switch doesn’t always line up with the status of the VPN and the widgets are completely worthless considering all they really do is open the app and sometimes but not always display the current connection status. Additionally, in a recent update, there’s a live notification always living in the Dynamic Island with the PIA logo and a connection status symbol with seemingly no way to disable it, which gets incredibly annoying. I wish I could enjoy using PIA like I used to, but now I have enough grievances now to where I’m ready to move on. Hopefully these issues can be fixed in the future.
