About Windscribe

Windscribe is a VPN application that encrypts your internet traffic and allows businesses to bypass censorship, access geo-restricted content and keep online activity private. It uses a combination of OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SOCKS5 Proxy, and IKEv2 protocols. Users can stream videos or download torrent files. It enables users to bypass censorship when traveling abroad by connecting them directly through a server in any other country so they can access websites including Facebook or Twitter. It has a kill switch feature that prevents any data from leaking out of connection if it unexpectedly drops out.

The true anonymity

I have a very positive experience with windscribe. Being able to access different IP addresses allows me to get better purchase prices for my clients. In addition, it allows me to enter pages that are normally blocked. I must emphasize that the connection speed is very good.

Pros

It is an effective software, change your ip address instantly without generating connection problems. It has a wide range of geographical addresses which has helped me greatly in my work to get the best prices and products for my clients. The customer service is immediate and at the request of a new address act quickly

Cons

More than a counter, I consider it a point to improve. Even, I consider it a kind of utopia for this type of software. In my personal experience, I would like that Windscribe can be anchored to several browsers, including browser windows, and that in each one it can offer a different ip address. This would improve my times incredibly.

Overall review

Pros

a stable vpn application that is free, fast and offers the opportunity to connect to many locations. The connection speeds are high and the delay is very low, the best part is developers are so funny :)

Cons

I think the application does not have any bad features, they can only add a little more locations that can be connected as a recommendation.

Best VPN in the market

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

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.
Friendly and fun emails from the CEO about new developments and feedbacks keep users engaged.
Relatively cheap

Cons

Their downloaded software keeps on popping up on the background of your computer requesting you to sign up. This can be annoying as you will have to keep closing the popup.

Worth every penny

Extremely satisfied with the purchase. Use it every day on every device.

Pros

Never disconnect, unlike many other VPN providers. Super fast to connect and disconnect. Affordable. Compatible with Chrome OS which is a huge plus because not many VPN apps support Chrome OS.

Cons

I can't think of many cons. Maybe at the very beginning, I was having some issues installing the client on my Windows PC but that was because I had another tap software which conflicted with Windscribe. So my advice is to uninstall any other VPN before installing Windscribe.

Really good browsing speed and absolutely no disconnects

Fair enough, it wasnt really bad but i chose to opt for another service

Pros

I like the fact that connecting to windscribe doesn't reduce one's browsing speed. and also the 10gb free data monthly is really beneficial to someone like me who does a whole lot of Beta testing of blockchain dapps. Also for its free version, the service was immense. They are hardly much free VPNs out there that competes with windscribe. I could only imagine how good the pro plan would be

Cons

On the free plan, the servers available are very limited and have unclear names and the IPs get flagged as spam on most IP checker sites.
