Are you concerned about your privacy online? Many people are and have taken to encrypting their internet traffic with a VPN (Virtual Private Network). For the uninitiated, a VPN allows you to tunnel your Internet traffic through another computer. The computer, acting as an intermediary, ensures that any data you send out cannot be identified to you based upon your IP address. More often than not, VPNs employ encryption; ensuring that nobody on your local network can intercept your traffic.

VPN usage has historically been linked with the enterprise, offering companies a way for remote workers to access an internal network without worrying about external threats getting hold of their precious, private data.

From this stuffy, corporate heritage, the consumer has found use for the humble VPN, with the proliferation of VPN services reflecting that. Common use cases involve circumventing georestriction How To Connect To Your Work VPN With Your Android Tablet How To Connect To Your Work VPN With Your Android Tablet One of the best things about having a tablet is the fact that I can be productive just about anywhere.

Choosing the right VPN provider can be a bit of a headache. Until now. Meet Private Internet Access; a US-based provider of VPN services, with an emphasis on usability and choice of endpoint. They’re fast, and really quite good — and should be no surprise that they’re listed on our Best VPN Service Providers page. Here’s why, and how they can help you take control of your own privacy.

We’re also giving away 10 Private Internet Access accounts valid for one year! Join the giveaway below.

Private Internet Access

I tested Private Internet Access on computers running fully-patched and updated versions of Windows 7 and OS X Mavericks. I connected over my home Internet connection; a 50 megabit fibre-to-the-cabinet affair.

Ads by Google

What first struck me was the speed of the connection. I’ve used other VPNs in the past, and a surprising amount were blatantly oversubscribed, providing glacial access speeds and intermittent (and infuriating) drop-outs. That really wasn’t the case with Private Internet Access.

Casual browsing felt no slower than my home connection, and I was able to watch movies and stream music without any buffering. Upload speeds were pretty impressive too, which is excellent news for BitTorrent users looking to maintain a healthy ratio BitTorrent Etiquette: How to Avoid Getting Banned From Private Trackers BitTorrent Etiquette: How to Avoid Getting Banned From Private Trackers Read More on their favorite private tracker The Best 3 Private Torrent Trackers That You Should Be Invited To The Best 3 Private Torrent Trackers That You Should Be Invited To Just like the good old Napster days though, public torrent sites and trackers are riddled with trojans and other garbage.

As I’m sure you’ve imagined, since you’re accessing the Internet through a server in the middle, latency is going to be a bit more than what you’re used to. However, I found that I usually got a ping that was less than 100 ms (and often hovering around the 50 ms mark). This is more than adequate for VoIP, and a href=”http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-reduce-lag-in-online-gaming/”>online gaming, although your milage may vary based upon the VPN server you choose. Obviously, the further the server is from you, the longer it takes for data to travel to and from it.

There’s also a startling amount of choice for endpoints. You can choose to push your traffic through multiple locations within the US, as well as many European jurisdictions including the UK, Sweden, France and Switzerland. People wanting to get their fix of Doctor Who from BBC iPlayer can choose to use a VPN in Blighty, whilst those who are particularly privacy focused should connect to a box in Switzerland or Sweden.

PIA-Swiss

I didn’t try out every location on offer, although the ones I did use were uniform in offering a reliable, consistent experience in terms of speed and stability.

Getting started with Private Internet Access is easy. Whilst it’s entirely possible to manually configure your computer’s VPN settings, they offer clients for OS X and Windows which do most of the manual lifting for you.

OS X

Acquiring the OS X client is easy. Navigate to the Private Internet Access downloads page, and click on “Download Mac OS X VPN”.

PIA-ClientDL

Once you’ve downloaded the DMG file, mount it and double-click the executable inside. Depending on your security settings, your computer may regard it as an unacceptable security risk and refuse to run it. That’s not a huge problem, and is easily circumvented Control-clicking it, and selecting open.

PIA-InstallerFail

Installation is over and done with in just a few short minutes. Once it’s finished installing, the client will launch and ask you for your login details. Pop them in, and select the region you wish to use by default. If you have a change of heart, don’t worry. You can easily switch later. You can also select whether you wish to open the VPN client whenever you log into your computer and tell it to connect automatically whenever the client opens.

PIA-Settings

Once installed and correctly configured, it’s time to connect! You’ll notice a new icon in your OS X toolbar. Click it, and select ‘connect’.

pia-mac-connect

Windows

As I’m sure you imagined, the steps taken to install the Private Internet Access VPN client on Windows don’t differ greatly to that on OS X. Like you did before, pay a visit to their downloads page and grab the Windows client. Once downloaded, double-click to start the installation process.

privateinternetaccess-install-pc

Halfway through the installation process, you will be prompted to install a device driver. Press ‘install’. Once the installation has concluded, the client will open.

privateinternetaccess-client-pc

As you did before, enter in your log in information and select the region you wish to connect to.

privateinternetaccess-toolbar-pc

You’ll notice a new icon in your taskbar. Click it, and select ‘connect’.

Pricing

Private Internet Access offers three subscription options: $6.95/month, $35.95/6 months, and $39.95/year. Regardless of which plan you choose, you’ll receive the same benefits: PPTP, OpenVPN and L2TP/IPSec protocols, “choose your own encryption level”, VPN kill switch, IPv6 protection, multiple VPN gateways, unlimited bandwidth, and support for 5 simultaneous individual connections. Private Internet Access also doesn’t store any traffic logs for complete anonymity.

How do I win a Private Internet Access account?

You may enter by submitting your name and email address. You’ll receive one entry simply by doing so.

After that, you’ll also be offered various methods to earn additional entries. They range from sharing a link to this giveaway on social networks; to commenting or visiting a specific page. The more you participate, the higher your chances of winning! You will receive 5 additional entries into the giveaway for every successful referral via your shared links.

This giveaway begins now and ends Friday, December 6. The winners will be selected at random and informed via email.

    HUGE problem - Banks have been ordered to revoke the card
    of someone who tries to order a proxy server or VPN!
    And THEY DON'T EVEN WARN YOU IT'S BEEN REVOKED!
    I needed one for a long time (to watch SKY F1 in the US-)
    Tried to order one with my debit card-
    BANK AUTOMATICALLY REVOKED MY DEBIT CARD -
    and you cant believe what a hassle THAT is when it's
    unannounced and unwarned-
    the only payment method you use

    This service being recommended is not as it seems. They are not stable and have a very poor support network. I purchased a 1 month service to try. 3 days later still unable to connect and there tech support only does tickets in sequential order. Priority is assigned by them, not you. You have no idea when they will get to your problem. I called their tech support and billing and all you can do is leave voicemail. Emails go unanswered. I give it a 0 out of 10.

      I have used them and can attest the opposite. Reviews can be fabricated by companies to look good. You need to either try it yourself or speak with persons that have tried the service. I don't want to see you taken in as I was.

    Whoops! Please let me resubmit this - with spelling and grammar mistakes corrected - and missing words replaced!:-
    I use my own private VPN to communicate with family, but it doesn't give me nearly as many options as Private Internet Access does. The ability to choose the gateway location and it's impressive speed an low latencies make this a VPN I really, really want. You never know when you may want to view your Netflix from a country where you are visiting on holiday. The fact that they don't keep logs on file for ages is another plus - just because I'm NOT involved in illegal activities doesn't mean I want anyone knowing how I paid for my latest Amazon purchase, or from which country .

    don't really have a need for VPN but have tried a couple of free ones. The ads drive you crazy and they are bit slow. Cyberghost seems to work pretty good without ads but the free app shuts down after 6 hours. That is not a problem though unless you sit at the computer longer than that. All you do is reconnect. It is pretty fast also. The paid app is supposed to be faster but have not tried it yet.

    I haven't used a private VPN but sometimes use ModHeaders to access tv shows in the US and something to get around the increasingly excessive censorship occurring in the UK to access my favourite torrent sites. Having this service would be a massive help as the service I'm using is free and I'm slightly dubious as to it's safety. It would hopefully allow me to watch online tv shows in other countries as my web traffic would be routed from there. Great article as always MUO.

    I've used a couple of terminal based VPNs that were pretty tough to use. But the benefits are good. This VPN software though, looks like it gives the same benefits for far, far less trouble. I appreciate software that makes itself exceedingly easy to use!

    TunnelBear is the VPN I've used most recently - and works very well.

    The problem with all the services is that the price seems high just to watch TV - in particular when I'm using it just to watch the Netflix service I pay for, but having to work around their restrictions on what can be viewed in each country. I imagine this is studio restrictions, but it seems artificial in this global market - why not have the same service available everywhere?
