Best VPN i have ever used but there are too least of free location
When you check the main names in VPN they all offer wonderful 3 years deals which you have to pay upfront before you really get to test them. This put me off Getting a VPN and the rolling monthly cost is usually overinflated. I came across Windscribe by chance as never had heard of them. They have a generous free tier account which i tested and found the speeds and latency to be pretty respectable. What sold me though was you can build your own plan and pay monthly, and the prices were reasonable at $1 per server zone (i.e us zone has 30+servers to choose from). I only needed 2 zones US and UK so this was perfect a choice of roughly 35 servers. Whats even better is you can also add on unlimited data for just an additional $1. So i get unlimited data on a good range of servers for $3 per month or circa £2.50 which is a bargain. Okay if you need a server in every country going this is not help full but seriously who needs more than a few choices? Okay so its a cheap price but is the quality any good? Well on my BT line which is normally 65mb down and 19up, im getting circa 56 down and 16 up on UK servers and circa 46 down and 14up on US. Thats pretty workable. The OSX app is simple to use, the chrome plugin adds additional layer. The ANDROID app is Okay however it would have been nice to include a widget to switch last VPN on from Home Screen. Luckily i got round this using shortcutter, and even a TASKER profile which auto connects when i leave my Home Wifi (using auto input) However just for info, they offer an easy to use VPN router config so you can have the vpn work at the router level (imagine smart tv connecting via vpn for your fav streaming service, router level is only way to achieve this) BUT and it's a BIG But, A lot of home routers just are not powerful enough to handle the encryption, this is not down to Windscribe it's just the OPENVPN standard. My Synology router which is more powerful than most managed less than 10mb down and 2mb up, so unless your running a dedicated powerful VPN gateway, just use the os apps.
After a very bad experience with NordVPN I have changed to Windscribe. Windscribe is the best VPN I have tried so far and it works perfectly. Also, I think it's a good practice to give you a real trial first so you can test the VPN first before buying an expensive subscription.
Windscribe has come a long way from when they started, I hope they stick to there guns about the zero-knowledge stance, and remain a VPN service that people can trust. VPN services should never track, trace, or store your info, including your IP address and any data transmitted over the VPN service (No-Logs). Thats entirely the whole point of a VPN!!. If windscribe dig there heals in and continue to provide this private reliable service, they will certainly be a favorable one. At the moment, these guys are one of the best ! Keep it up, people need reliable (Non-Shady) VPN providers.
I use Windscribe on two computers, two phones and one tablet. It works great with all of them. I got a lifetime license at StackSocial.com which was a steal. Customer support is also good.
Worst vpn ever! so slow, and all ip in the black list, and it's in a premium account. I am not banned , I just use another vpn.
I do not recommend this VPN, this is the worst one I've ever seen, all ip in the black list, can check themselves who does not believe, still just without writing anything they banned my premium account "your account is disabled for abuse" Realy? Yes I abuse your spamming ip(nop), ok.If you don't want to be banned too, you can never buy this vpn. Ahaha Windscribe's report me inTrustpilot : "This user broke our Terms of Service several times and had their account terminated." Dear Trustpilot team How did they know what I am user? from where? I did not write any of my data in a review, As I say the worst service ever!!!!
Service is good.
Been using Windscribe for about 2 years now. Easy to use, and a pleasure to have.I was sceptical in the beginning, when I heard others reviews, but, I fully agree with them now. I utilize Windscribe in both Microsoft, and Linux OSs. It has become my app of choice. Reliable, fast and easy to use.
Windscribe is the best free VPN service I have ever used. I won a "free" 60gig per month limited lifetime account on a software giveaway forum 3 years ago in a contest sponsored by Wndscribe. My first choice is ExpressVPN which I use on my main desktop, but I installed WindscribeVPN on my wife's computer since I won it. She uses it to be safe from "bad actors" (hackers, phishers, data loggers) when doing banking or any financial transactions online. It is safe, fast, and has computers in every country we need to do any business in (North America and Europe.) *I recommend it to anyone who needs a safe (military-grade encrypted) fast VPN for free even if the free standard version is only "10GB/month of data."
