Pros: In short, speed, reliability, safety, generosity, and convenience. If you would like to know why, keep reading.

When it comes to speed, Windscribe is a cheetah racing deer. Windscribe delivers the fastest speeds compared to the competition. Before Windscribe, I hesitated to use VPNs at all due to how much it slowed down my connection. You either had to sacrifice security or speed. With Windscribe, no sacrifices are needed. Not even to your wallet. If you don't use VPNs much or don't want to spend money on a VPN, Windscribe's free tier works amazingly great. With the free tier alone, you get a good amount of locations at a fast speed with a 15GB per month cap. If you upgrade, you unlock even faster speeds and a total of 57 locations. Giving away such a great free tier really shows what Windscribe is all about. One of the most unique aspects of Windscribe is it's generous referral system. If you refer a friend to Windscribe using your affiliate link, you and your friend both get an extra gigabyte added to your monthly plan. The best part is, if your friend decides to get Windscribe Pro, you also get it. And that counts for anybody that you invite. If they upgrade to Pro, you get the exact same plan for the exact same time. No charge to you. Seems great, right? Well, there's one more thing. If you have lots of computers and not a lot of money, you can upgrade your account by mining Monero. The more you mine, the more credits you get. Once you hit a certain n

Cons: I really am a happy customer with Windscribe. To this day, I haven't had any issues at all.

Overall: Windscribe has never let me down. It is a great VPN that everybody should be using.

I use Windscribe VPN for a long time and this program has proven to be on the good side.

Pros: Windscribe VPN is a secure VPN service designed for anonymous surfing on the web and circumventing regional restrictions when visiting blocked sites and allows you to absolutely anonymously visit pages on the Internet without the risk of tracking advertising modules.

Windscribe VPN has an easy to use VPN client, convenient, modern and intuitive interface.

In the desktop application developed built-in feature of the firewall that allow you to disable all connections that are established not through the VPN. Thus, Windscribe VPN provides an extra layer of protection, preventing leakage of your real IP address.

The program offers three different connection modes that use different ports to circumvent any limitations of your Internet service providers.

Windscribe VPN does not store any logs about the connection.

Connection of the selected server takes a few seconds. There is a browser extension for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera, which allows you to hide information about your browser, remove ads from the site, remove social buttons, remove tracking on sites and so on.

If necessary, you can create secure links.

I like that they have servers in many countries of the world, and even in Libya.

Windscribe VPN is a cross-platform service for computers, browsers, mobile phones, TV, routers, NAS and torrent clients

Windscribe VPN has an unlimited number of connections and you can use one account for all family members.

Cons: When installing simultaneous connections from two locations can seriously slow down the speed of the Internet.

Sometimes, when you disable the service, my real IP address is not restored for some time, even after the restart. Shows the subsidiary provider. We have to wait a while.

The big cost of a lifetime license.

Overall: This VPN allows you to use the Internet without worrying that the data can get to the provider. It will easily unlock websites blocked in the country, as well as allow to use services unavailable in the country. All servers support anonymous torrent download and nobody will know about it.

If you want to access is banned in your region site to block tracking activity and make sure that your actions are not logged by the ISP, then VPN Windscribe is a great choice. Windscribe VPN has a high level of protection and is easy to use.

Be anonymous, hide ad's and browse safely.

Pros: f you are fade up with ads and cookies are hunting you then this VPN and Ads blocker will help you a lot. I use it to purchase and hide from local firewall. It is really when you found you cannot access your own account in file storage website which you used to share big files, even it is your own created/shot videos. I use this VPN to bypass this awkward situation and access my files. It does not keeps track of my browser's history and give the anonymity. Even when I shop online websites track me and show me different prices for different places. The adblocker works fine all ads on video site is blocked and I can see any video without any ads.

Cons: It sometimes lags very much and doesn't load at peak time. When changing the server on the fly sometimes it stops working and needs to be restart and breaks all my connections.

Overall: I love the idea of anonymously and ads blocker in one package, it stops ads before it loads and saves you bandwidth cost. It doesn't need any special configuration and has an android app, which includes with your account costs, so you can secure your pc and your phone at same time. It helps to hide your true identity and give flexibility of going anonymous with one click.

Pros: 1.- You can choose between a downloadable version and another version that you can use as addons in firefox.

2.- It has multiplatform support, so you can use it in different O.S.

3.- It is really very easy to use, especially the version for Firefox, since you only have to click on the windscribe icon, select the country and you are ready, you are already connected to an IP from another country and thus you can maintain your privacy in the web and you can also skip geoblocks of some web pages.

4.- The vpn connection is usually very fast, so you can surf the internet and download files in a quiet way without having to wait for hours.

5.- It also has a pop up block, so when it is activated it does not allow the presence of the typical pop-up windows that are so annoying. In this section is especially great because it blocks all windows that have not been opened by you, so you also avoid the download of malicious codes.

Cons: the truth, so far I have not found any problem when using windscribe since it does not generate any problems in the system or in the navigation.

Anonymize your web browsing.

Pros: 1.- Windscribe has multiplatform support, so it can be used in Windows, Mac, Linux. It also has a plugin for web browsers (chrome and firefox).

2.- The installation and use is quite simple. In my case, I use the firefox pluggin, to install it the same process is done with any add-on (you just have to allow the installation in firefox and that's it), and for your use you just have to click on its icon and move a button to the option "on" and you will be navigating safely. In the case of the windows application, you only have to install it in a habitaul way and you are ready to use it.

3.- By using Windscribe you protect your credentials, so you do not give any information on the web, preventing them from easily tracking and obbtangan your browsing history, real ip and other data.

4 .- effectively blocks annoying ads (typical popup automatic) that only hinder navigation on the web.

5.- the connection speed that winscribe offers is really very good, you will hardly notice that you are using proxy since you can download files and surf the web comfortably.

Cons: So far I have not had any problem or difficulty with windscribe, since your app works smoothly. Perhaps the only bad thing is that there are hours of the day where the connection declines and becomes slower, but as a result the connection works very well (although it will always depend on the server you use and the web pages you visit).

Pros: I managed to get a lifetime subscription on sale for this software, so I like the price for the features this software offers! This VPN is easy to install and use, and Windscribe doesn't keep logs so I don't have to worry about my browsing information being shared by others. It offers many different VPN connections so you can adjust as needed, should one of the connections be slow.

Cons: The only downside of this software is the frequent updates it needs, but it's more of an annoyance than a flaw. My lifetime subscription also requires that I log into the website every 10 years or so to keep it active, but that's another minor annoyance.

Overall: Overall this is a solid, powerful VPN that has a lot of great features for a fraction of the price of most other VPN clients. If you can get a subscription on sale, it's an even better value. I definitely recommend Windscribe!

Pros: Windscribe provides decent VPN speeds and an easy to use Mac OS widget. They claim to keep no logs, but I haven't researched heavily into their log retention policies and practices. If you refer friends, they will increase the data cap that you currently have (if you are not unlimited)

Cons: For data cap plans, they often reset the data counter well before the end of the month (sometimes 5 days before). This is a bummer if you were planning on utilizing the remaining data in your cap space the last 5 days of the month only to find that you are now reducing the next months data. Additionally, they are located in California, USA, which can be a cause for concern for privacy minded individuals.

by Windscribe on February 04, 2019

We are not based in California, we're in Toronto, Canada.

As for the caps, you can always upgrade to a paid plan, which has no caps.

Pros: I first saw windscribe vpn on a friend's phone he explained he had being using it for a while that it's a great vpn, then i was convinced to install it on my phone firstly I love the fact that they give free 10 GB of data per month with unlimited connections, the mobile application is user friendly and easy to use. selection of regions is really easy on application.

Cons: After I decided to upgrade to their pro version, their customer support is just too slow in responding to message. I notice the browsing speed is slower compare to some top vpn in the market.

Pros: It has a huge range of countries you can use to connect the VPN.

Connection is usually fast and trouble free.

It has an IP-lock that will block traffic until your VPN connection is running, it will also block the traffic if the VPN accidentally drops out. This is a great way to protect your real IP, even in case there is a hickup.

It has servers that will bypass NetFlix VPN check. These are named Windflix in the server list. If you travel a lot, this is a great feature.

Cons: I do not have any particular dislikes about Windscribe. The only thing I can think of, is the frequent updates. Each update, requires you to download the installation file, close down Windscribe and then run the installation. I would have liked it to auto-update in the background. That way, I would not have to do this myself before I can use the software every other time.

Overall: I use Windscribe to test geo settings in marketing. Often times, you need to set up different flows for different countries. This tool will help you check if the geo settings are correct.

I also use it a lot while traveling, both to secure my IP when accessing hotspots, but also to connect to NetFlix for entertainment. Same goes for reading local news from abroad, one of my favorite publications is blocking a lot of content for foreign users.

Pros: Fast speeds, easy configuration for all platforms, transparent once it's installed and running, keeps you private and secure with no leaks.

Cons: Customer service could be a little more responsive. However, you rarely need them, and they mentioned on their reddit that they are adding support staff.

Overall: A VPN is essential these days for both Privacy and Security. Windscribe delivers both. But a VPN is no good if it slows you down. Windscribe speeds are the best I've seen after trying over six other VPNs.

Pros: Windscribe is one of the best VPN app that I love to use. For the fact that they give free 10GB bandwidth monthly to use some selected servers makes it one of the best VPN I have used and I will continue to use them because they always have their customer attention at their core center and also reply to every inquiries being sent to the through email.

Cons: In as much that they offer free trial on some selected locations their premium version is limited in some locations and does not have much more location than other VPN services that I have used. Though some of the locations might be what I used mostly but some that I need on occasional basis are not available for me.

Overall: Windscribe is a good VPN services and I have recommended it for some of my friends who don't have the much needed cash to buy any VPN service to try out their free trial before they buy any VPN they need.

Pros: I really like how the creator Yegor is still very much involved with the product. It isn't very often that you can get one on one support from the creator of a product. This is the best VPN I have used. I also appreciate how upfront Yegor and the team is on their privacy policies.

Cons: I had to really think about this, but the only thing I could think of is maybe improve/update the documentation a bit. This is really just a nit pick though.

Overall: This wasn't solving a problem other than feeling like I can browse the Internet without someone tracking and/or knowing exactly what I was doing. The privacy is worth the membership.

Pros: I love how easy Windscribe makes it to browse the web privately. I love that Windscribe gives you ways to increase your monthly free amount. I love having 15GB of data to use each month. The application is easy to install, easy to configure, and super simple to use. Other applications can be tricky to install and configure and won't give you near as much free data use. Windscribe is the best hands down.

Cons: I've never had a problem connecting to the service or with the application itself. Updates have always worked fine.

Overall: If you need a VPN service from time to time or just want privacy when surfing the web, Windscribe is the perfect option. Whether you use the generous free amounts of data each month or are paying for unlimited, Windscribe will not disappoint.

The VPN that's worth switching to.

Pros: It has been a couple of months since I started to use Windscribe products. I was using lots of VPNs before, so far this is the best VPN I've ever found because Windscribe provides some aweome services for a very low cost to their clients. As an example, usually you have to pay around 10$ - 40$ per month for a VPN but the cool thing is, with Windscribe you can customize the VPN's feature according to your budget. That means if you want to have a VPN for 2$ per month you can do that with Windscribe. When it comes to features, they have tools to block ad trackers and web beacons, strong encryption methods, Web browser extension and desktop application suitable for all the operating systems, and much more...

Cons: Sometimes their customer support bit slower than I thought.

Overall: Windscribe helps me to be invisible in the world wide web and fast browsing.

You can even send a recommendation to some friends or tweet about it to earn more free data for each month. They have quite a few countries available to choose from and a best location option for automatic choosing. For the paid version, they even have some servers that work with Netflix for people who like to bypass country restrictions (not recommending that part).

Cons: When on a slow connection, this makes it almost unusable, but that is expected from a VPN.

Pros: What I like about winscribe is that it is very easy to use and its price compared to the functionality offered is relatively low, additionally it has a completely free version, and although it has limited functions, it allows me to fulfill my objectives of ensuring my privacy and security when surfing the internet as well as allowing me to access websites with access restrictions by country.

Cons: Until now what I like the least about the software is that sometimes when the Internet connection fails the program is disabled and it does not resume when the connection is restored.

Overall: I use windscribe to guarantee my security and privacy when surfing the web, as well as accessing websites that are blocked by service providers in my country without problems, allowing me to access a wide range of content and digital services.

Pros: What I like most about this software is its simplicity. All I need to do is click the connect button and which zone I want to connect to and it does it very quickly.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the automatic selection of best zone. Some of the recommended zones end up disconnecting very frequently.

Pros: Transparency of Use

Plug and Play, Just Works!

100% Effective for Intended Purpose

Pros: I like how Windscribe offers a free and paid option, both of which are viable options for different customers. I have found the free version to be very useful.

Cons: I don't like how long it has taken the company to release an android app. It took them almost a year to release it after they announced it.

Pros: They offer you free 2GB to use in a month and pay when depleted. Who doesn't like free stuff? they are the best. This can be treated as a free trial.

Ability to choose locations easily on cruise control.

They will cover your ass wherever you are.

Overall: Windscribe will give you a remote location anywhere you wish to be. Enjoy the free 2GB monthly and you can add it as an extension on Chrome and Mozilla

Pros: The app interface is clean and simple. Quick and small installation. Very easy to access the server you want to connect or disconnect to. The chrome extension makes the ease of use even greater.

Cons: Below average speeds at times. But that could also be based on my ISP's connection. Also, even though Windscribe has servers around the world, it can be somewhat limited when compared to other VPNs (no luck for Africa or South America)

Pros: This software is an incredibly fast and secure VPN. It does not store any logs which makes actually makes it truly anonymous, unlike many other VPN software out there. Also, it does not sacrifice any performance as browsing speeds are still very fast.

Cons: You only get 10GB of data for free a month. Although this will be enough if you are just browsing the internet, it will definitely not be enough if you want to watch videos and streams.

Overall: Overall, Windscribe is an incredibly good VPN and is very fast and secure. I highly recommend this VPN if you want to remain anonymous on the internet.

Pros: Windscribe is really easy to use and is a true VPN. Actually, you can even use it to stream films from well-known platforms despite being in a country where some films are still not available.

Cons: I honestly can't say anything negative about Windscribe so far. The price I paid was great and I've installed it on all my devices without a glitch.

Overall: I love how easy it is to use and how efficiently it works. I use it both for privacy reasons and streaming online content from different countries. It works great.

Works really well! Fantastic speeds too!

Pros: Been using Windscribe for a while now. Lots of great features and I can't complain about the speed. One thing I love is the cookie monster features, you can set it so it deletes all cookies as soon as you close the tab.

There are also 50 locations to choose from, and you get 10GB of data a month with their free plan!

Cons: Over the last 4 months, i've had no problems with Windscribe, and the free data allowance has been enough for me to use the internet daily.

Pros: There is basically no configuration needed with it. You just have to install it, pick a plan (optionally) and then it's all about choosing a server that you connect to. Even the free plan enables the user to pick from a few places on Earth.

Cons: Nothing at all. Windscribe is great and I will continue using it.

Overall: I first installed Windscribe about a year ago. Never had any issues with the software itself. It connects to the servers fast and closes as fast, too. The free plan is great for people who do not need to use a large ammount of data.
