Safety

PCmag.com chose Private Internet Access as editor's choice with a score of 4,5 out of 5 possible.

If you use PIA's own client software, you do not have to worry about the type of encryption you are using. It manages the software itself and automatically chooses the best encryption. By default, AES-128 is recommended, which provides a good balance between safety and speed.

If you want to use a different level of encryption, you can choose to pile yourself at the settings and for example. select the highly secure AES-256 encryption key. You can also turn off encryption completely for maximum speed, where VPNThe server in practice acts as a proxy that only hides the IP address and provides the user with an artificial location.

PIA also uses firewall as well as anti-malware and spyware to protect the servers against hacker attacks and so forth. All in all, the security is both impeccable, but also flexible and can be adapted to the individual's current needs.
