Windscribe VPN Review


Windscribe provides an impressive feature set at an attractive price, including industry-leading encryption and support for all the main platforms. In addition, Windscribe offers several free options – such as browser extension support and pre-flashed router firmware – making its product highly suitable for everyday use.

Windscribe uses AES-256 encryption as standard, one of the highest levels available. Furthermore, there is a no logs policy and various how-to guides available for various devices. Furthermore, while being located within Canada – part of Five Eyes alliance – shouldn’t have an effect on their data privacy policies, transparency reports indicate otherwise as these requests from government agencies have all been declined by them.

Windscribe desktop app is extremely straightforward, featuring an intuitive UI designed for user simplicity and compatibility with multiple devices and operating systems such as iOS, Android and Linux – as well as offering popular VPN protocols like OpenVPN (UDP and TCP), IKEv2, WStunnel and WireGuard. Furthermore, its Smart Select feature selects the optimal protocol based on speed and availability automatically for you.

There is a good selection of servers located worldwide, though not as many as some other top VPN services. However, you have the freedom to select your server location; additional locations can be unlocked by paying a small fee per location you access – this approach helps lower overheads while giving you greater flexibility to optimize performance by choosing an optimal server location for yourself.

Secure hotspots provide another excellent feature of Windows 8, enabling users to share their Internet connection with multiple devices at the same time. This is especially beneficial for frequent travelers as they can use their laptop to connect to Wi-Fi networks at hotels, airports and other public spaces with ease.

Chrome, Firefox and Opera browser extensions from this company are extremely well-made. Installation and usage is quick, offering great levels of protection to all apps on a device instead of just the browser alone. They also block ads, stop tracking and improve browsing speeds – an impressive combination!

Windscribe boasts an engaging social media presence and blog that keeps its audience up-to-date on the latest threats to online privacy. Customer support is quick to respond and includes a helpful FAQ page; should you still not find what you need here, emailing support directly is an option as well; unfortunately they do not currently provide live chat compared to some of the top providers.
