Note: Private Internet Access cannot offer technical support for depreciated operating systems. This is due to potential security issues that could be present and which are no longer addressed by their respective manufacturer. Private Internet Access will continue to provide the most secure and private environment possible for our users. We are unable to guarantee that subsequent releases will work with unsupported operating systems. Customers may benefit from dramatically enhanced security, privacy, and updates by migrating to newer operating systems whenever possible.
