This article will describe 3 VPN software based on the list of vpntesting.com for various Linux which you can use to ensure that nobody except the physical servers you are connected to know who you are, what you are doing online, or even where your data is being routed to/from.

 4) Open up a terminal window and type: sudo killall OpenVPN; sleep

5) Copy the IP address from your main PIA login page, log into your router settings by using IP address you have set it, then go to the administration tab and find a networking option that best describes your network configuration

6) Paste the IP address of the PIA server along with other information as requested by your specific router model

7) The correct port should be automatically populated for you.  If not though, leave it as 1194 UDP
