With a near constant stream of cyberhacking news, snooping government agency news, and rampant identity theft news, one could be forgiven for being nervous about the current state of online safety.
In the current Internet climate, safeguarding your online activity and tracks is a necessity. That’s why VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) are out there, fighting the good fight to make people’s online data safe and secure, every day. And VPNs don’t come much more powerful and affordable than Private Internet Access or PIA for short.
Private Internet Access VPN’s Peerless Service
So what makes Private Internet Access so special? Where to begin…
Well, let’s start with their 2500+ servers located in 18 countries including a variety of 9 options in the US as well the rest of North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. That’s a lot of the globe covered by one VPN.
They are also PCMag’s editor’s choice and Reader’s choice at Tom’s Hardware among many other accolades.
And what does this worldwide coverage cost? Unbelievably, you can secure your wireless network and bypass geographical restrictions with Private Internet Access VPN’s peerless service for the cost of a mere $39.95 a year! That breaks down to a mind-bogglingly affordable $3.33 a month!
Of course, if you don’t feel like committing to a full year of service, you can go for the half year package at $35.95 ($5.99 a month) or go month by month at $6.95 each. When you look at it like that though, it really makes the most sense to spring for the year. After all, Private Internet Access is the go-to low-cost provider that you can count on.
Private Internet Access VPN FlashRouters
Having the right VPN is important, but the experience just isn’t complete without the right router to make the network run as smoothly as possible.
And that’s where FlashRouters comes in.Our main goal at FlashRouters might seem ambitious, but it’s one we work tirelessly to achieve, day in and day out; we want to provide our customers with the best wireless network money can buy.
By flashing our wireless routers with DD-WRT and Tomato firmware – open-source replacement firmwares that vastly improve a router’s functionality – we ensure that our devices are versatile, powerful, and future-proof. DD-WRT and Tomato give our users access to a range of advanced features not available on your average router; you can extend your wireless network, access extra security options, and even determine how your bandwidth is allocated!
Private Internet Access users should be happy to hear that a FlashRouter can improve your VPN experience as well. We can customize your router specifically for your VPN, allowing you to avoid tricky installation processes and connect multiple devices (iPhones, iPads, Samsungs, Android Devices, Rokus, Apple TVs, desktops, laptops, etc.) to your VPN account. And, if you hold on to your old router, you can use our popular dual router set-up, which allows you to switch easily between a local account and your VPN.
Here are a few more open-source firmware features:
- Built-in OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP Client Connectivity: Utilize your Private Internet Access subscription with multiple devices as well as popular streaming players like Rokus. Connect any device to a VPN with one setup while saving you the trouble of installing the VPN connection on each single device!

- Advanced QoS (Quality of Service): Allocate your bandwidth for VOIP, streaming service & popular websites.
