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: 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: Working as a freelancer or working overseas sometimes makes it difficult to do your work effectively because of the distance. Windscribe helps me do my job as good as I was working right there at the office.

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.

Very useful , i can honestly say i been using windscribe for months without anu problems

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: 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)

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: Best free VPN software all over my experience

Even this free version has Adblock. It helps to counter some pop-up web

BEST for streaming, checking some websites that aren't allowed into your country

Cons: Not a good idea to use it while downloading your some torrent file

Not that slow and bandwidth is limited unless you pay

Pros: Love how easy it is to use windscribe, really makes things straightforward for those that aren't as knowledgeable when it comes to all the technical things computers and the internet can bring.

Cons: Would be great if they have a real-time live customer support system for users. However, I do admit their customer support is quite good and they responded quite quickly.
