    Private Internet Access has one of the cheapest VPN subscriptions available — you can sign up for as little as $2.03/month. With such a low price, I wondered whether PIA could really stand out against its higher-priced competitors. It’s been around for 10+ years, so it could be one of the best-value VPNs out there. I decided to find out just how good it is by looking into the company’s lo...

    Sehr einfach einzurichten unter Linux (Kubuntu)

    Absolut einfache Installation unter Linux. Bin sehr zufrieden mit Preis, Leisung, Geschwindigkeit und ... Bedienbarkeit. Hatte vorher andere Anbieter probiert die VPN für Linux anboten. Allerdings stellten diese teilweise keinen Support für die neuesten Linux-Distributionen zur Verfügung oder sie waren relativ komplitziert bei der Installation bzw. bei der Eirichtung und Bedienung. Daher kann ich PIA zumindest für Linux-User nur empfehlen.More

    VPNMaster is difficult to download, has slow customer service, and the speeds and encryption capabilities aren't that much better than free versions that are available. VPNMaster is hardly a premium service, but only available at a premium cost. I honestly can't understand what would prompt a person to choose VPNMaster. That also means it definitely can't unblock Netflix on any of it's servers, or...

    A Free APN easy to use. The few adds are acceptable interesting and manageable. My junk Email has shrunk to zero

    I am an elder smartphone user. Smartphones are not easy to use. I understood a VPN is a safeguard. ...  Due to my circumstances. They must be free. I tried 2 others, junk mail and spam was unbearable. Since downloading "VPN MASTER" spam and junk Email have virtually gone (mastered). The only worry is it cuts out (like on a timer) and has to be reset. More

    Garbage. Servers always down, missing or slow as crap

    Enough said. You are better off using the free version because the paid subscription for "VIP" access ... is no good. Servers have been down the past 2 days and who the heck knows what happened to their US servers. I can't use any of my apps or services routing through any other server other than the one based in the US which negates the purpose. Don't waste your hard earned cash on this service.More

    The Bottom Line

    Final Verdict: Great Price for Customizable Security on Any Device Private Internet Access provides strong security with several customization options. Plus, its large server network is great for torrenting since every location allows P2P downloads. I was even able to download twice as fast with its port forwarding option. On top of that, it has full-featured versions for every major OS, including one of the best Linux apps around. It’s a great value for the price, especially with its yearly subscription. In addition, its privacy policy has been proven in 2 different court cases. Regular transparency reports are further proof it’s a company you can trust to handle your data. There are a few flaws. The customer support is hit-or-miss. On top of that, it has inconsistent speeds on local servers, and it’s really slow on long-distance ones. Overall, I recommend Private Internet Access if you want to torrent on
