Why do you use PIA? Sounds like a waste of 35 bucks.

I don't know about Tim but I use a VPN primarily for Australian bank websites, I've had issues with access being blocked when trying to send money from my Australian bank account to the Phippines when the bank website detects that I'm in the Philippines. 

OTOH using a VPN with the endpoint set to Melbourne I've never had issues because the bank web site software sees an IP address that locates me as if I'm in Australia.  And it can be very difficult to reactivate web site access from the Philippines.

Mostly for bank & credit card sites.  Also for Netflix, since I have the VPN already.  The US Netflix has a much larger library than the PIs Netflix.

Oddly. Netflix gave me a warning last night about being on a VPN. Maybe that’ll be the next one to go for US content.

Yes at first I was telling them, still had issues.
