Unreliable PIA disconnects randomly without warning or kill switch kicking in. This happens on all my devices. It will not reconnect without reboot of tablet. This app is insecure and completely unreliable. Will buy different VPN service if not fixed.
Been using PIA for years It was the only VPN to offers enough configuration controls to work on my school wifi (port settings, tcp, etc.) and also support enough simultaneous connections for my phone, pc, laptop, and download box. The value and performance (I have 100Mb/s connection at home, PIA reaches full speed) is unbeatable, and believe me, I've tried lots of alternatives, even recently. I always come back.
Has been flawless so far Has good auto disconnect/reconnect as Cellular or WiFi signals get turned on and off. It's easy on the battery, and also provides fast speeds when the VPN is active. The kill switch is a feature that makes it so that programs no longer work if the VPN is not active. This feature seems to work on Android. I have not tested it on other platforms. The fact that there's a version of this for Android, iOS, and PC makes it a great bargain since your allowed to have up to 5 devices using the service at a time.
Excellent App Download speed is not always 100%. They should have more servers outside of the US... Yet, it beat several competitors I tried that were suppose to be better. It is reliable at roughly 500-600kb/s, sometimes faster. Maybe I would get better speed on a better rig. My pc is only a quad core at ~3.3ghz, w/a butt load of worthless ram... Anyway, the app itself is highly customizable & has an internet kill switch, when and if there is a drop from the VPN. Love PIA!!!
Great VPN. Easy to install and easy to use. The VPN itself works smoothly. I use it alot when I travel and when it seems slow, it often helps to change the ports in the settings before I connect. Email support has been very good as well. They have fewer restrictions on number of devices. I've been using this for a couple of years and it has been working well without any serious problems. I do find it's easier to purchase it directly through PIA but that's a billing issue. They also notify you, multiple times, when your account will automatically renew unless you cancel which is also easy. Overall-5 stars!
Works okay. No major issues. Update - Battery issue fixed! Still annoyed by the large location icons that waste space (the old single-line sorted list was better). App still doesn't deal with networks that block certain ports. It would be nice if it would attempt to try another port and/or protocol automatically. It would be nice to have an option to autoconnect when on WiFi, open WiFi, or always...
