Private Internet Access (PIA) vs ExpressVPN Review Update
PIA vs ExpressVPN Update Video
DNS Leak Test Reviewed
So, after it came to my attention, that I had made a mistake on my original review of ExpressVPN’s DNS Leak, I have reviewed my original post comparing Private Internet Access vs ExpressVPN. The update to ExpressVPN can be found here.
I have looked at both Private Internet Access and ExpressVPN both showed only one server being present after their respective VPN services had been engaged. Looking at the website www.dnsleak.com showed that ExpressVPN was flagged saying that it may be leaking, but only one server was present. So, I marked this in the following chart with an asterisk, to indicate this. Private Internet Access showed no such warning, so they are free and clear with this detection.
So, in light of this change. I now have had to change my overall conclusion, which is detailed in the following chart.
Everything else has remained the same, but the DNS Leak changed from finding PIA to be better at DNS Leak protection to now receiving a neutral ranking. Both performed adequately here. Now, both PIA and ExpressVPN had the same number of positives and negatives. ExpressVPN remains strong in terms of customer service and privacy and PIA boasts strengths in pricing and speed tests. The two VPN services come up the same for the other metrics: payment, IP locations, platforms supported and DNS Leak.
I have had to change my recommendation from Private Internet Access to a neutral rating for both services. ExpressVPN and Private Internet Access, both provide really good services, they both have strengths and areas of weakness. But for me this is a toss up. You can go with either and be served well. So, I have to say it’s up to you. Go with either PIA or ExpressVPN.
