Can you browse with PIA?

I do all my downloading to a seedbox in Germany so I won't be torrenting from home.

So here is where the rubber hits the road.  Due to the Gov't allowing the changes to Rule 41  in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the FBI can legally install malware on your computer if it thinks you might be doing any illegal activity on your computer.  They do need a warrant but now they can get a warrant from any Judge in the country instead of a local judge - and the warrant could be a blanket list of IP's that a Judge in Hicksville, AL may just say better safe then sorry.   I have no idea what mechanism they have in place to let you know they have a warrant out on your IP.

Since the FBI cannot see the data in your Tor or VPN connection and sees you using these services they may assume you are part of a Child Porn ring or something and get a warrant. 

The Rule changed in December 2016.

There really is no real secure way to browse or use the Internet in the US anymore.  If the Gov't, etc wants to monitor you they easily can

You would have to use a known list of VPN services or Tor itself for this to be an issue - Point-to-Point encryption to your seed server is probably the best way to go.

Looks like a judge just invalidated the changes to Rule 41 - so VPN and Tor away!

As in, try your favorite speed test sites with and without the VPN enabled.

My ISP plan calls for 75 Mbps up and 7 Mbps down.  I take a ~10% hit on download speeds using PIA with a local VPN.  International VPN is slower and much more inconsistent.  Practically speaking, my US-based VPN performance hit is inconsequential.  Test results...

Yes, you can browse, you'll just see a tracker error in your torrent client when you try to download with PIA enabled.
