I have written frequently about VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and the reasons why everyone should be using one. (I am a believer in what I preach. I am using a VPN to post this article online. When I turn my computer on in the morning, it immediately connects to the Internet via a VPN and remains connected all day long. The same is true for my laptop computer when traveling and for my cell phone wherever I am.)
Now one of the bigger VPN providers has announced the addition of unlimited simultaneous connections. Private Internet Access is one of the most popular VPNs. Many VPN providers place a limit on how many devices you can have connected at once, partially to manage network capacity, and also to prevent someone from sharing their account with many other people.
Starting today, PIA is dropping its device limit entirely, allowing people to have as many devices connected through the same subscription as desired. The company said in its announcement, “PIA’s new offer of unlimited device connections per subscription applies to both new and existing customers, and is a significant upgrade from the 10 device connections previously offered.”
Private Internet Access already has most of the features you would expect from a VPN provider, including apps on every major platform, browser extensions, WireGuard support, servers across the world, and limited support for streaming services. Most people probably weren’t maxing out that 10-device connection limit, but dropping it certainly makes PIA a better overall value.
