PIA (Private Internet Access) Review.
After signing up to PIA (Private Internet Access) I have found their services to be very reliable and cost effective and for what you get for the price of a 12 month subscription as being the reviewer in my opinion is very much worth it.
I have found increasingly I have relied on the service for on line anonymity and specifically their no log handling procedure of your personal data. The company PIA has multiple servers around the world and can accommodate many forms of on line services for which they provide anonymity. Android, Linux, Windows, iOS.
Setting up in Linux is a breeze but will require CLI (Command Line Interface) Knowledge in order to download the OpenVPN framework and distribution files. For those that wish to use the CLI only this is an option for example hardcore users of bash for example under Nix* .
Recently Russia changed their policy on the handling on Data and on line services and PIA as of the time of writing this article pulled their Russian presence as law changes meant that information was to be logged I believe and their for did not coincide with their policy of no logging of users personal data. This in my opinion gives peace of mind.
Their is an active on line forum and user data base and customer service Representatives are able to respond quickly to customers requests using tickets available placed Via. E Mail.
The company it self also accepts many payment option and options include prepay debit cards and check's for anonymity if you with to set up a temp E Mail address to keep your self fully hidden even from the company it self.
The Android App is easy to install and can be downloaded Via. Play Store, set up and configured and along with various options has a kill switch to block all traffic in case the VPN drops.
As well as supporting P2P, SOCKS5 PROXY you also get unlimited bandwidth and it has WiFi encryption capabilities. For those that know the entire WiFi framework and construct is another beast all in all and their for secure access across networks using your mobile, you can at least breath easy as it supports AES256 Standards.
They have 3465 + Servers across the world from Asia, to Germany to north America.
Another big thing is they dont censor your access and you can can by pass geographic location restrictions with their software.
My advice would be everyone needs a VPN and everyone also who wishes to use a VPN needs to do research on the laws in their own country because if routing your connection threw servers for speed for example threw their servers in you country you may run in too problems if the law asks questions. Lets be honest thats why a lot of people use VPNs. On line Anonymity and protection from prying eyes. They hold no log files.
If in the future PIA begins to log traffic at the time of writing this what I have said is correct so dont blame me if something goes pare shaped.
