Outstanding app, very few quirks This is one of the easiest VPN apps and service to use. And it works almost perfectly. The battery usage is a tad high, but definitely not a deal breaker. You also have to pause/unpause or restart the VPN when switching from WiFi to mobile data to continue browsing. This effect is leased by the inclusion of a pause button in the pinned push notification from the app. Going from WiFi to data to WiFi seems to work fine. Overall, a great app and a great service. Privacy has never been easier.
Best VPN service there is I use PIA on all of my computers and other tech. It works every time, and is very easy to use. Not only on my computers and tablets, but I have been able to install it on my raspberry pi, and now on my router that's running DD-WRT. it's worth every penny. It also has a built in ad blocker, and a kill switch so if for some reason the VPN is down, your Internet is stopped. That's very handy if you do not want prying eyes to watch what you're doing. Test how well you are hidden by googling "ipleak".
It works OK and I like that I can see throughput speeds but it definitely sucks battery fast on my Nexus 5x! I also often have to disconnect/reconnect oftentimes if I leave wifi or turn the antennas back on after being in airplane mode. Also, it doesn't block Google/YouTube ads! Fix these issues and it's a 4 or 5 star.
Great VPN Service This is a great VPN. Helpful customer service. Very responsive. Given BEST by PC Magazine, Wired, Life hacker and more. Doesn't keep logs. Excellent program for privacy, security and access to blocked content. People - Make sure you download correct system app, i.e. Android, PC, Mac, etc. No problems here at all on my Android. FREE VPNs are not safe! This is VERY SAFE, RELIABLE, AND REASONABLY PRICED.
I bought into PIA primarily because it includes MACE for all software on our PCs and Phones (e.g., not just browsers). Our PCs and Phones do not take much of a hit in speed, similar to OpenVPN for Android which this also uses (but offers nothing like MACE). We do not have to use other tools giving us MACE-like protection, e.g., Adguard DNS which does slow down our devices. I'd give this 5 stars, but as of today at the end of Feb 2017, they do not use current versions of OpenVPN, now at 2.4 since the end of 2016, which have superior crypt algorithms. We do use PIA's max security which is fine, and I hope they catch up with newer software.
Utter garbage. Rarely worked during my time in China, or back here in Canada. Often stalled out when trying to connect, or when it actually did connect, didn't work. Other VPN services are cheaper, faster, and are bulletproof in their utilization. Look elsewhere than PIA VPN if you want a product that actually works.
