Private Internet Access VPN Review (2016)

Updated 2016

Private Internet Access (PIA) definitely ranks high in my list of VPN services. All the features are wonderful, it's easy to use, and it's very cheap when you compare it to similar services.

Even though the company is US-based, it has thousands of servers located across more than 20 countries, and you can switch between the countries as many times as you want (which you won't see with every other VPN service out there). Plus, you can use your account on multiple devices at once!

I use Private Internet Access for my two computers and iPhone, but don't buy it just because I recommend it. Look through this review to see the features to make an informed decision.

39 VPN Services Compared: Prices (2016)

Updated 2016

I have a large list of free and paid VPN services to better secure your Internet browsing. The table below just serves as an easy way to compare the prices of some non-free ones.

Some of these VPN services have alternative plans that are more expensive but come with more features. The prices you see here are the cheapest plans available for each service. Also, some of these services do not let you download/upload an unlimited amount of data. Choose the "Review" or "Buy" link next to each service for more information about these things.

  • Cheapest VPN from this list: Privatoria
    • A $22.80 payment for an entire year is just $1.90 /month
  • Cheapest VPN I've reviewed: Kepard
    • Pay $35.00 for a full year, making the monthly equivalent $2.91 /month
  • The VPN I use: Private Internet Access 
    • Buy a year at once for $39.95. This cost divided by 12 months in the year gets you the VPN for $3.33 /month

13 Websites That Show Your Public/External IP Address

You public IP address is the address given to you by your ISP. It's the public address that hits web servers when you access Internet pages.

In contrast, the private IP address is the address used within your network.

Listed below are several websites for finding your public (external) IP address. You only need one to find the address, but I've listed several in case one of them is down.

How to Use Torrents Anonymously

If you're worried about your privacy when using torrents, it may be necessary to learn how to download and upload torrents anonymously (e.g. anonymous torrenting).
