Private Internet Access

Private Internet Access 2.1

Navigate the Internet privately and in a secure way

In recent times, security issues have increased exponentially. Thus, most of us need a good way to protect our private information while surfing the web.
Private Internet Access is a program that gives you multi-layered protection. It hides your IP address so no one can trace it. This also prevents data leaking and possible information theft. On the other hand, the program also encrypts all the information you send through the web so nobody can read it other than the intended recipient. And last but not least, it also offers users a firewall that prevents your computer from connecting to risky websites.

All this sounds great. Nevertheless, unlike other programs that offer limited trial versions, the developers of this one only allow you to to download the program, but you can't actually test its functions. This is a drawback, since one does not have any way to test it and see if all its claims are true.

Another disadvantage is that the program is subscription-based; that is, you can download the program, but you need to pay an annual, biannual, or monthly fee on order to use its functions. The fees are not very affordable, either.

In sum, if you want to try this program, you need to pay a monthly fee as a minimum. It remains to be seen if the program delivers what it promises.
