Private Internet Access now has 50 servers in 50 US states

As lawmakers try to catch up with cybercrime, Private Internet Access is helping Americans take matters into their own hands with our 50 Servers in 50 States Campaign. We now offer physical or virtual locations in all 50 US states.

Our servers across the United States are a convenient way to find the best deals, maintain access to online services, and protect your privacy from the uncertainties of state and federal laws.

Configure your own cybersecurity shield with PIA when and where you want across the United States.

What is the 50 Servers in 50 States campaign?

Everyone in the United States should have the right to privacy, online and offline, regardless of their state. Unfortunately, the laws that protect your right to privacy in the real world don’t quite extend to the digital.

The United States does not have a national approach to online privacy. Federal and state regulations regarding privacy and data security are ambiguous, and they still fail to meet real-world challenges. Until we get broad and consistent legislation that protects our personal information in the digital world, we must do what we individually can to defend ourselves.

Not all services are available in the United States. Many sporting events are subject to outages and some businesses do not operate across state lines. And if you’re not careful, websites can use your personal information to charge you more for certain products.

PIA’s 50 Servers in 50 States Campaign Aims to Bring Greater Online Convenience and Privacy to US Citizens. Our goal is to offer at least one connection, either through a physical server or a virtual location, in every state in the United States. We’ve even included a separate server in DC, for a total of 51.

You can now get an IP address in any US state, wherever you are.

Why You Might Need an IP Address for a Specific US State

Accessing an IP address in any US state can save you the aggravation of missing out on the big game, provide account access anywhere, and keep you from paying more for a hotel room, among other things. .

Use case 1: Some bank and credit union accounts require you to be physically in your home country to provide access to your account. For example, you may not have access to your bank account if the bank does not have a branch in your current location. Having an IP address in your home country guarantees you will have access to your bank account while traveling anywhere in the United States.

Use case 2: Major sporting events, including NFL, MLB, and NBA games, are banned in some states due to syndication rights. You may even have trouble streaming them without buffering if your ISP uses activity-based throttling. A VPN unlocks sporting events across the country. Please note that you will still need a subscription to paid services to watch sporting events.

Use case 3: Watching local news in other states can be tricky because most sites show you news relevant to your current location. If you try to watch out-of-state news programsyou may need an IP address for your preferred state.

Use case 4: If you are planning to go on vacation in another state and want to check the hours of operation of small local restaurants and shops or get the best prices for hotels before you get thereit is useful to have an IP address for this state.

Use Case 5: US citizens have until midnight Pacific time to file their taxes. If you live in a state in the Pacific time zone but are currently out of town, having an IP address for your home state guarantees you get that three additional hours to file.

One way to access all of your favorite sites and services from anywhere in the United States is to use PIA to obtain an IP address corresponding to their location. PIA now offers IP addresses for each state so you can stay up to date on the latest news, access critical accounts, and secure your devices on public networks like Wi-Fi hotspots.

How to set up private internet access on your device

To get an IP address from your state, or any other, simply download and install PIA VPN on your device. We offer dedicated apps for macOS, iOS, Windows, Android and Linux as well as compatibility with smart TVs, routers and game consoles.

Once the app is installed on your device, you can connect to one of our super-fast servers in any US state.

How PIA VPN protects your privacy

Private Internet Access ensures data protection during transit.

Connecting to one of our servers completely hides your IP address and encrypts your traffic. Even though your ISP can tell you’re using a VPN, they can’t see what you’re doing online. That means you don’t have to worry about activity-based throttling.

Unlike a standard Internet connection, PIA uses 256-bit AES to encrypt your traffic when it travels from your device to the target server and vice versa. This is military grade encryption, the same level of protection the US government uses to protect sensitive data.

Private Internet Access lets you choose your tunneling protocol according to your needs. Extra-secure OpenVPN is perfect for accessing sensitive accounts or websites you’re unsure of, while the high speed of WireGuard® is better suited for activities like streaming and gaming.

We’ve got tons of other features, including an advanced kill switch, split-tunneling, and an all-in-one ad, malware, and tracker blocker. The best part, PIA now offers users across the United States the same level of convenience and access by providing IP addresses from all 50 states.

Don’t lose your right to digital privacy

Until the federal government can provide consistent legislation that protects your digital privacy, PIA is here to help. And if recent legislation is any indication, geo-blocks will be enforced with even greater scrutiny in the future. We now provide IP addresses in every state in the United States, so you can protect your personal information and maintain access to your favorite services, no matter where you are.

We have long advocated for greater digital privacy in the United States. And while our service offers solid protection for your data online, we can never replace your individual voice. It is important to demand your right to online privacy at the national level. Comply with laws, hold businesses and government entities accountable, and denounce the invasion of data privacy.
