В целом пользоваться можно, но в Опере периодически возникают проблемы (введите логин/пароль proxy-сервера и т.п.). Также иногда неясно, куда девается трафик - он очень быстро заканчивается, а отследить "утечки" через интерфейс Windscribe не получается. В общем, более-менее нормальный VPN, хоть и слегка недоработанный.
Have been very happy with the performance on Lubuntu, had serious slowdowns on my Windows box, even when the VPN was turned off, had to remove it. I still use it on my laptop when traveling, as my data speed is not as important. Again, the price was right via Groupon.
I've never been this happy and satisfied with an app as I am with Windscribe. Their tools are excellent and I actually feel safe when using the VPN and the internet, You get 100% protection, a great selection of locations to test out, and some very cool features such as unblocking Netflix and geo restriced sites. Speed wise I've been impressed with what they provide and have noticed the speeds have gotten even better since they last provided an update.
Very occasional user, so Tunnelbear was fine until I wanted to watch the World Cup and found the piffling 500mb/month allowance was gone in about 15 mins. Windscribe's 10GB is generous (and think you can boost this even further) and on a heavily-subscribed event like the WC, coverage was smooth and uninterrupted. May not be great if you want endless streaming, but for medium occasional use, seems great to me !
Excellent job when it comes to protecting data.Their firewall protection really does its job, and their cruise control guides you to the best location server available. Very convenient and reliable when it comes to speed and support.
I am happy with windscribe and I like that all server locations except india , Japan and South Africa. I already used another VPN that had only 5 servers all over the world and sucked. Is is always better to have the option as near as possible. The speed is ok in Europe that I traveled and maybe in some cases is a marginally slower when using video apps that scan multiple sources in comparison to my other VPN provider but I can understand it at is supports p2p in almost all servers. It doesn't matter if a VPN have less servers for performance as it many have less clients in comparison to older services in specific locations. If they continue to add more when necessary it will be fantastic. Also the option to connect unlimited devices simultaneously is fantastic as if you have more than 10 devices including your home router you got versatility . The mobile app needs more features as it is very plain and you cannot choose specific server just countries.
It has p2p support in 49 countries from 52 in total. The 3 countries that p2p is not supported are india , Japan and South Africa. Speed is ok in general for torrent Is far better for p2p that vpn unlimited that has only in 5 countries p2p support and cyberghost that is not supporting p2p in usa and oceania.
A lot better than the rest. Though I'm still what I'd consider a newbie to VPN's. I've done a lot of research and studied how it works. I love how they provide a lot of good content on their website too, it was mainly the info that I read from their site that gave me the push to give them a go.
I tried out Windscribe just to see how it works as a lot of the comments were positive. It's great with their generous services even when you're using the free app. I think Windflix is one of the fastest in their servers, though all locations do seem to provide reliable speeds even when it comes to downloading.
Windscribe is great and their features are too, plus services are good. Though you can't expect too much from their free app because of its limitations, especially with their bandwidth of 10gb per month, the pro plan is awesome. I'd definitely suggest if you want to make the most of windscribe you should get their pro plan.

This is definitely one of the best software i've come across, VPN wise. I feel safe when browsing and downloading, have never had an issue with speeds, ads or trackers, plus the ultimate cherry on top is you can unblock US NETFLIX wherever you are.
When I first heard about Windscribe I thought it's just the same with other VPNs but then I read about how amazing it is so I was convinced to try using it and I can now see why! I can honestly say that I have no regrets signing up. I'm still using it and have been very happy with how it works. It has a lot of great features and amazing services but what I love about it is its fast speed.Thanks Windscribe!
Anyone noticed the faster speeds Windscribe has on practically all their locations? I believe they had a recent update or maintenance check because I've definitely noticed a change. Also noticed they now have a customer support pop up on they're website. Great changes and improvements from Windscribe. Proves they're listening to their customers wants and needs!
I like what it does and use it my phone and computer. However, it slows down my streaming dramatically. My SiriusXM stalls, movies stall, etc. I've reached out to Windscribe and their response is to keep trying all the various options to get the right one that works for me. I don't have time for that. They should have a product that doesn't slow down your streaming...period.
I can see that you don't understand the nature of VPN's. If you have traffic being routed 3500 miles away, of course it's going to be slower than traffic going directly from you. Plus, the server has its own load of other people on it. You would need your own personal server 3500 miles away, and you would need it close to your broadband connection, in order to not lose any speed. So, you would also need your own personal internet service originating in that other country.You couldn't afford it, believe me.
I'm using Windscribe since the 15 of November 2017 (date on which the company that I work for put on some web filters...), and I'm really satisfied about the service. IKEv2 is fast, the chrome addon is good, and right now I'm even using it outside of work. I really like it.
Windscribe overall was a good app, but it would suddenly disconnect at seemingly random times. And no, I did not have any battery saver, data saver, or screen dimmer options turned on. Certain wifi hotspots would not work when attempting to connect with Windscribe, regardless of UDP, TCP, ports, etc. And yes, I did agree to any wifi TOSes BEFORE attempting to establish a connection with Windscribe. I do like their service in general, but can't give them 5 stars. They do deserve 4 though.
Windscribe has been great. I've used it for a little over 3 months now, and it has definitely lived up to my expectations. I've given a few VPN servers a go over the years, and while there are a good bunch of servers available, I strongly feel Windscribe has out shined many of them.It's definitely the full package VPN, with a ton of extra features you'd normally have to download individually. Overall, a top class server and one I plan to continue to use.
I have used my own VPNs, PIA and Windscribe and I really like the Windscribe VPN. On the pro plan, the speeds I get are marginally faster than PIA for the servers that I have tested. For the most part, I am getting connection speeds at the same rate as my broadband connection for servers that are in my country. If I am connecting to a server across the world then I am not expecting an extremely rapid connection. Having said that, I have not tested all their servers and the connections.
The desktop client is excellent, both Windows and Linux. I like that they have servers in many less developed countries too. For example Ukraine, Thailand, Azerbaijan, Indonesia and Brazil. Even Israel and Libya. This sets them apart from the competition. I got a lifelong subscription through a discount for $70 which is fantastic value. I like their standard level of high encryption too.
While I've used Windscribe, I've never noticed any big hiccups that hindered usability. It worked reliably for me, and provided all the necessary features I needed. Was satisfied with the service, even with the limited amount of servers.
3mb for UHD content is a joke! Why they claim to have a server that connects to netflix, if it can not sustain the real need to stream Ultra HD content, 4k HDR if it's slow as hell? it's just to bait people out.
I've been impressed with the high quality speeds I've received, and I think I can speak for many that Windscribe is one of the best VPN's available on the market today. If you've spent time researching Windscribe you'll see that they have a whole ton of positive feedback, all which I agree to. Being able to smoothly choose my location, easily rely on their speeds, all while enjoying their complete package of extra features is great.
It is easy to configure for those who are not tech-savvy and the built in firewall acts as a killswitch...that's the only good I can say about it. I've tried different ports and updating to the beta version...I've even tried manual configuration. Bottom line, if you want to see a 95-99% drop in your connection speeds this is the VPN for you.
I have started using Windscribe as a free user but It didn't took me long to upgrade to Pro as it was so good. Wide choice of supported devices and tools, would definitely recommend. Well done Windscribe!
A must have if you're always using the internet. VPN's are important and need to be used more regularly. I would highly recommend trying out Windscribe even if you're not 100% this is the VPN for you. The free plan is great for those that want to give it a go, and still provides a great selection of services and locations.
Amazing software that works great. This software give you and incredible security with very good internet speed. The most incredible thing is they have a Windflix that works with netflix 100% so you can watch the whole USA netflix, great isn't it?
Windscribe is a great service and they do not lag my connection, even when they offer a free subscription through one of the many freeware software sites. Windscribe is a great value for my money and I have never regretted purchasing their service.
On Windows 10 the native app works well. The only issue I have encountered so far is that I have to turn off Windscribe when I want to use Wi-Fi printing On iOS does not work well at all. I have tried both the app and OpenVPN. The app often does not connect, giving an error on all country servers. OpenVPN often gets disconnected seconds after switching apps (e.g. from Safari to Mail), so that can´t be due to a prolonged inactivity. In any case the VPN should stay active to protect the background activity that certain apps have.
Hi! I had a similar situation, now mine seems to be working fine. Did you try getting in contact with customer support? Many people complain due to the lack of a live chat support, but I've found their support system is great. I'd give it ago and get in touch, they may be able to point out the reason why it's slowing down on iOS.
Windscribe is one the best VPN available! I tried many VPN providers before, some had slow speed some DNS leaks and some was too expensive. When i sign up with Windscribe free i had good speed so i upgraded to lifetime after a while, and i am proudly saying that i am staying with Windscribe. No DNS leaks, Great speed, Fast support and many servers to choose from.
Windscribe by far is one of the best VPN's available. The quality of services guarantee a stress free and reliable use of the VPN without having to stress over slow speeds and faulty locations. While there are other options available, I personally prefer Windscribe due to its range of features and very affordable price, even better it has a free plan that doesn't limit you to it's many great features. 5 out of 5 from a happy customer.
Windscribe is a decent VPN with fantastic speeds based on my use of it for just over 2 months. I've seen a lot of people mention they are suffering from slow connections yet I've also seen so many people praise Windscribe for its fast connections. Not sure why this is, but based on my experience with it so far I've really been pleased with how well it works. I'd recommend Windscribe to anyone and would definitely say it's the best VPN available on the market today.
Linux. Enough said. Or not as the "helpful" red block is telling me. This is one of those services I'd actually consider buying once I have an income. And their promotional emails aren't half bad considering you get 10Gb per month for FREE. (They're actually quite funny). And the consistency in bandwidth is just bliss.
I've really been impressed with Windscribe's performance thus far. I have paid for and used other VPN's in the past and so far I have been quite impressed. I chose this provider for a couple of reasons. I really like the ad-blocker, and anti-social features, as well as the Firewall. I have yet to try the bypass feature that claims to be able to get past the popular video streaming site everyone is using now-a-days. I've seen other VPN's claiming to be able to do this - maybe at one point they were able to do so, but not anymore. If and when I test it I'll re-post my results on THAT particular topic here. If they ARE able to do so, I wonder exactly how long that will last. It seems to be a bit of a cat and mouse game that VPN's are playing with these guys. I also have a large family (by today's standards) and not being restricted to the number of devices that this can be installed on is another reason I like Windscribe's offer. Lastly, I like the fact that they offer a Linux option. I've looked far and wide for a VPN provider and the speed and reliability has been excellent - my son has even said to me that several times he forgot he was even connected! So far, I am very happy. Keep up the good work Windscribe!
I've been using Windscribe for a little over 3 months now and it's really lived up to what it says it would do and provide. I'm enjoying the variety of locations that are available and being able to unblock Geo restricted sites is a major plus. I'd definitely recommend windscribe.
Windscribe is a decent VPN with it's share of flaws. It's one of those small numbers of VPN's with a free version, which is great for light usage up to 10GB a month. It's Pro prices aren't the cheapest on the market, but the opportunity to use the VPN on an unlimited number of your devices is a huge boon. The Windows desktop client is small, slick and operates well. However it's painfully slow, and almost all locations whittled down my internet speed to less than 10% of it's potential. I tried country-level selections and city-level selections and found that the closest to me was also one of the slowest connections thus I had to settle for another country entirely. A desktop client upgrade to use the IKEv2 protocol (said to potentially speed things up) is said to be in the works, but there has been no news for a while now, though it is constantly promised. The Firefox browser extension seems to work well and speeds are much faster than the desktop client. It has a small form factor, is simple and the whitelist feature to allow sites through the VPN is a nice touch. It could do without asking me to review the Chrome extension (?) now and again, however. It seemed to me as if the developers of Windscribe are very quick to blame other factors for potential issues - when using the VPN with my Android device the VPN connection would occasionally drop. This was dismissed by Windscribe to be a problem with my ISP which is strange considering that a rival company's solution was an unrelenting, rock solid connection 100% of the time on the exact same connection and device. Windscribe has a Reddit which is quite useful for finding solutions to issues and interacting with other users. There are often posts about slow speeds which seem to be largely ignored by the Windscribe team and sometimes they seem to be more interested in posting funny articles and giving away Pro memberships through small competitions than addressing potential performance concerns. As a result if you look back through a few pages you'll find that some posts requesting support have been completely left to the wayside and unanswered. I feel that lifetime memberships sold through third party websites could bring about an early end to Windscribe. Servers aren't free to run and a small fee for unlimited lifetime use could bring about their quick demise. Another company caps bandwidth use on lifetime memberships to 900GB/month which is more than enough for the massive majority of users and could serve to curb potential abusers (and maybe help servers in the process). In short, Windscribe has made a decent start but has places that could use significant improvement. As the service is quite new it has the potential to be something great but with very slow desktop speeds and potentially shaky support they have a ways to go yet.
I really love the simplicity of Windscribe and have never faced any problems with my speed (that I noticed). My WiFi speed in general is not that great but Windscribe does not slow it down which was a big relief to me when I first started using it. It's also amazing that they added the possibility to watch Netflix US.
Currently using the pro plan as I wanted to check out the larger range of networks, so far I've found all locations hold a strong connection. Obviously, the further the location the slower the connection can be, but i'd still say it's pretty good. 5 out of 5 stars for me.
Like i said in the title! a little slow but it is working and it is working well! hard to get over 5 Mbps on a lot of locations but it changes the IP and it connects quickly, same location connecting has a slower/faster speed rate also???
I have been using the Windscribe VPN for more than a year and the entire experience has been simply wonderful.I faced few issues but they were resolved by the Windscribe team. Did I forget to mention they have a friendly and lovely customer support team?. Windscribe is completely transparent about the privacy and even you can read the logs of the application before submitting to them. Now recently they have also provided their android application which is really good and gets the job done. One of the best feature you can use Windscribe on a Number of devices in a pro account I don't know if any other vpn provides such good services.
If you think windscribe is so great, then you have definitely not seen their terms - then it doesn't seem all that great anymore. I strongly encourage anybody to read their terms, before you sign up! - At some point they even state something like "if giant spiders force us to log you, we will notify you" - well, great, then you have stated the obvious, but what if everybody else makes windscribe log - will we then be notified?
I am a pro user and never faced an issue. They have strict no log policy. I am a network administrator of my college (Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College) and I know how logging works. Please read policy carefully before making any comments. Windscribe is best multi-platform VPN, I have ever used. They have transparent policy (what protocol they use, what type of encryption and so on). I love this VPN.
I couldn't log into my account, fullstop. When I gave Windscribe my password they were able to login to my account at their end, so what prevented me, we have no idea. I didn't say Windscribe was no good, in fact they tried to help! My experience is all I have to go on.
I installed Windscribe and for a short time used the free 2Gb, then decided to sign up and increase to the free 10 Gb before deciding whether to have a paid subscription. But I could never login into my account. I asked support for help which although basic, compared to what I found with a Google search, was forthcoming. Nothing worked. I've uninstalled Windscribe, because if I can't login how do I know if it's working?
It is your problem that you can't remember your password. If you are a free user and don't provide email, there is no way to recover you password. If they reset you password, it will be a security loop hole. So they did right, not resetting your password. I am loving Windscribe. They have some unique features. Just research by yourself. You will love it.
i joined Windscribe just recently paid for a yearly subscription, although I wasn't quite sure at first but as they say in England Practice makes perfect and i am growing to love this software, i suggest before anyone knocking it-try it out first or look before you leap, i made the right choice haven't looked back since i joined some 2 months or so ago. You chaps in Canada well done i take my hat off. (NB-notice i am experimenting with close locations although i am British, based in Malta eu. i find the Netherlands is best since i also understand the lingo) Best Regards from Malta.EU.
I own their lifetime account and been using for years. I agree their server is somewhat slow including their Pro server. Definitely not recommending Windscribe for gaming as it is very unstable and cause spike and sudden lag in game like every 5-10 minute interval. But it is perfect VPN for normal browsing and maybe streaming video site. They are consistently updating and adding feature to their apps and most recent one is hotspot feature which is great. Support wise it really below par. Support does not really reply and when I make a complain on their Twitter they always reply they are working on it and etc. Really bad support and no live chat. Summary is that Windscribe is good for keeping your privacy and for normal browsing. For torrent and gaming user you can look elsewhere.
Used about 100-200 Mb. Then told I had exceeded 10Gb and need to upgrade. No customer service positive experience. Shoddy business practice denying customer service and making them pay for Service.
Started as for today - free version - so far so good, work flawless :) Keep it up. I would recommend it for others who asks Google which vpn is best for Linux.
Windscribe team is very slow at updating the apps. We are waiting for Ikev2 for better speed and still there no ETA about the next update. Android app still is not advanced like some others vpn apps in play store. They should stop selling lifetime subscription if they need to stay in the industry for longer because servers cost money. 3/5 from me. There no DNS or IP leaks. I am a pro user and most locations are too slow.
It’s the best VPN I’ve tried, especially in terms of customer support. Connections are easy and good. Connections to Tokyo can be a little slow at times, though. Overall, quite impressed, and I hope they maintain and surpass the current standards they have attained. 4 out of 5 stars, as there’s always room for improvement and no space for complacency. Great job, Windscribe!
* When I started out using Windscribe as a free service - a coupon that upgraded my account to 50GB/month made this VPN quite an attractive choice over many others - I did so both with the Chrome browser extension and the Linux client on a small server in my network. A while back the free account was still limited to only one simultaneous connection, so I ended up getting a subscription soon after to use both. Although this limitation was removed from free accounts in the meantime, I do appreciate the additional connection and setup methods as well as the greater choice of servers. * From a pure performance point of view there's little to complain about. My internet connection is rated at 40/10, of which 38/9.5 MBit/s is what can regularly be achieved through different speed testing methods. When testing the Chrome extension and the Linux client on the free servers, the results did vary some by the servers chosen, but they weren't bad by any measure. On the downstream I reached 25-33 and on the upstream 5-8 MBit/s. These results were confirmed when downloading a couple of torrents with Transmission, where I was able to achieve a sustained download speed of 3.5-3.85 MB/s or ~ 28-31 MBit/s. On the matter of torrents, a bit more later. * Now bear in mind, this testing was initially done on the free servers and the results sounded good enough to me that I ended up choosing a subscription. The list of pro servers is considerably longer with servers in 50 countries, of which all but the Russian ones are ready to be used right now. There are without a doubt some limitations that other VPN providers don't have, such as the smaller amount of locations per country. PIA's ten (read: 10!) US locations are amazing. Then again, is the measure of a good VPN only how many server locations it can offer? Or are you, like me, more interested in a solid product while being able to live with only three US locations for example? I don't miss what Windscribe doesn't provide. The smaller amount of total servers does not appear to slow users down, but they're also smaller than the few big VPN providers out there so this makes sense. * The result of my testing with the pro servers does not differ a lot from the free ones. The maximum achievable speeds were a little bit higher, but only on the servers in my country, which makes sense as national peering tends to be fastest. After testing, the speedtest range rose to 25-37.5 on the downstream and 5-9.5 MBit/s on the upstream with both the browser extension and client. Connected to a Windscribe server in my home country, I could reach sustained torrent transfer rates of 4.5 MB/s, in other words 36 MBit/s. * A short test of double-hopping showed significantly reduced transfer rates of ~11/3 MBit/s and a minimum ping that was beyond 350ms, but I didn't go through all location combinations to see if that was an outlive or not. Speaking of that, unlike at least one other VPN provider I know of, Windscribe does not have a built-in multi-hopping or double-VPN feature. Instead the user is left tinkering on its own through the use of a desktop client and a browser extension that connect to different servers. A bit more elaborate, the same concept can also be used by hosting a virtual machine and nesting two desktop clients this way. On the upside this method allows the user an unparalleled flexibility and is more secure from fingerprinting due to the use of a VM, but on the downside one can try it with any other VPN provider and it's not nearly as comfortable as the advertised double-VPN/multi-hopping features of the competition. * I did mention testing the speed with torrents several times through this review and it needs to be mentioned that Windscribe does not offer a port-forward method like some other VPN services do. While you are perfectly hidden and secure behind the IP address of a VPN server, you remain permanently unconnectable. In most cases this is not a big deal, but it can impact download speeds negatively and will inevitably have an effect on seeding. * There's something going on with the Windows desktop client and it's apparently an issue of the OpenVPN client. I don't know if I believe that, because I have used other VPNs before and never had this bad of a performance drop before, but we'll have to see what the upcoming client update will bring. Since the majority of people are using a Windows operating system, this is an important issue and I'm not all that happy how long it is taking to resolve it. * In summary: there are definitely some dark spots on an otherwise great experience. The reason why I still rate this VPN 5 out of 5 stars? Because none of the shortcomings apply to me and how I use a VPN. If you're reading this review carefully then you should know if it's representative for you or not. I feel it would be disingenuous to reduce this rating just because I can't ever see myself needing the added security of built-in multi-hopping or the choice and granularity of choosing from among extra locations in a country.
Good VPN service. I especially like the "Secure gateway" feature, which I didn't see on any other vpn. I create a hotspot on my computer, and then allow my friends at school to connect to it, and we can sit on reddit all day :) Thanks Windscribe!
I went with Private Internet Access believing their hype. I paid for the year and have regretted that decision ever since. I have to fight with PIA to get it to run. Windscribe wants to run and starts automatically.
I tried this VPN for many weeks, using the free plan. It works awesome. Never a problem and excellent speed. That's why I bought the lifetime subscription and I'm so happy. No other VPN gives you unlimited devices and a lifetime plan.
I tried many free vpns, they're all what you would expect - garbage. Either offer almost no bandwidth (tunnelbear), throttle you (protonvpn), or just don't work at all (vpnbook). Windscribe is the first 1 that actually works as advertised. I got 50GB of data by using the voucher 50gbfree. Free servers are pretty fast, and there is a good selection of them. Mobile apps work great, and the Linux client is also pretty awesome. Almost nobody supports linux, but Windscribe does. If I could give 6 stars, I would.
Good support mostly in hours to a day I got an answer. The speed sometimes is very slow and i have to turn the vpn off to stream a movie or a video. Have a lot of servers to choose, they added Netflix location to connect to unblock the website but on browser extension only* I am pro user.
I have used a few times other VPN and I didn't get benefits from paying a lot of money for a few devices. But with windscribe I get a lifetime pro and can add many devices for a few dollars, low cost, it's insane! and many good characteristics than other popular vpn have. The only bad stuff is hope they never cease their service so I can have my 50 years vpn license forever.
I found Windscribe on twitter, and whoever maintains their account is hilarious. Anyhow, the service itself is equally as great. They finally launched the Android app which is pretty basic, but does the job - it changes your IP and doesn't slow you down. A+ Windows application is also pretty nice. I really like the fact that its small and minimalist. All the features like different ports, protocols, firewall are there. The recent update has been especially great since you can now create a proxy server on your network, right in the app. I was able to connect my ps4 to it, and use a VPN while gaming, which is awesome.
I have Been using windscribe for almost a year now no complaints whatsoever. I used PIA and expressvpn before, and had nothing but trouble. wasted days talking to their support. Then I got Windscribe and everything just worked. 1 year of service, not a single support request. browser extension is really handy!
Not sure what problems others have, but I am getting 95% of my normal speed while connected to Windscribe. The trick is to expand the location and connect to city specific servers. This is especially true in US locations. US East is a big place, I live in Florida so if I just connect to US East I can get a server in New York, or Washington DC, which is far. When I connect to Florida directly, my speeds are blazing fast. Speeds aside, Windscribe is a great VPN and even works with Netflix.
Their desktop application is reasonable, number of servers. But speeds are terrible even with paid PRO plan. Barely could watch streaming video. Using the built in Opera free VPN I'm getting much higher speeds.
Very good multi-platform vpn. If you are a linux user, you won't find better. Speed is also good. Best when used in conjunction with browser extension. Transparent policy is my favourite. Browser extension is good for privacy. Just try it. You would love it.
Doesn't work at all for Indian servers. If works, it is as slow as few kbps and buffers more that it streams. All this on a PRO subscription. I do not recommend. I don't understand how the reviews on websites are so positive.
Very effective. Love it. I am using pro subscription. My location is West Bengal, India. It is fast most of the time and slow on particular peak hours. It always show server load on app (using bar notification). If a server seems slow, please switch to other. And as per security, you can't find better (see the comparison between Windscribe and other VPN ) in this price range. If you only care about speed, then go for no VPN at all or go for another provider and pay more. This VPN is new and continuously improving. Just keep an eye on their blog. Not even every application evolved from beta, Android and Linux client are still in beta phase. Please be patient and give it a time to evolve fully. Consider purchasing lifetime plan (invest for future. When this VPN fully evolve, there will be no lifetime plan ). Bottom line is if you want security and privacy and ok with speed. Go for it. If you want speed to go somewhere else.
It's cheap, big and good, with it's 48 servers. I will buy a lifetime service on StackSocial. But for now the free version seems to be great. I'll comment again when I bought Windscribe lifetime so stay tuned.
I just purchased a lifetime subscription to Windscribe VPN. However, I am disappointed by the speed. I am coming from Private Internet Access VPN and still have that account. I’m able to compare speeds of both. Without VPN I’m getting 26 Mbps in the USA, with PIA 20 Mbps, and with Windscribe consistently 6 Mbps no matter what servers I try. I think this is ridiculous. If I would have known it was this slow, I would have never purchased it. I don’t recommend it at all. Try the other faster VPN options out there!
I bought 2 years. Same issue here. Most of the time servers are very slow. Even servers close to the me (like 1000km distance). I used to have their free plan, and the free plan was OK. Then I paid, it was ok for a few months but since then it's distressful. I am now using another free offer from a different VPN which is faster than windscribe. I have submitted several tickets, each time they take 3-4 days to reply asking "does the problem still persist". Useless.
Little slow but effective. I can not really complain about the performance. Don't get me wrong, there are many outfits that perform as well, but, for some reason, I like this one and therefore, I am going by my instincts. Member till 2038!
Winscribe is a great vpn for users that don't use vpn's often, and want one for free. It has many options and can be used on just about any device. It has good speed and it's easy to setup and noob friendly. However, there is a downside. It is not completely free. you have a limited amount of gb unless you upgrade to pro. the bright side is that it is relatively cheap considering NordVPN (in best case scenario) cost more than Windscribe vpn. ($39.48 for Nord every 12 months and $30 for Windscribe). one more downside is (as of the 25th of july in 2017) android requires pro (due to change) and so does it if you are setting it up on a router. Long story short it is a free vpn that does it's job well.
Netflix detects it and won't allow you to watch anything.I see no point in having it. I want something that will allow me to watch Netflix from the U.S. because Canadian Netflix sucks. That's my opinion. Might be good for other uses, I haven't tried it on youtube videos that are blocked yet.
Other than that it seems to work well. MagicJack works well from France.
Netflix detects lot of VPN providers, but not sure how that is worthy of a 1* review.
My room-mate bought Windscribe pro a few days ago and so far I'm loving it! >1mb p2p speed No dropouts since first launch a week ago. It is worth the price for the speed and privacy. Definitely suggest giving pro a shot!
It is very easy to use you get 2gb of data free and if you verify your email you get 10gb! so it's pretty good and the locations are fast too. I recommend trying it and if you like it you get a subscription so you have unlimited data.
Very reliable and fast. Does not play well with Netflix, otherwise, works flawlessly with xbox, youtube and others. I've been using it exclusively on my laptop for last 2 months with no issues other than Netflix. Also disappointing there is no Android app, though you can configure the vpn manually through android's configuration. Big bonus for Tomato fans - there is a configuration for Tomato that works very well.
Great vpn !! Free 10Gb of private data? That is like awesome(Barney Stinson voice). No compromise in speed too. I am using my college's wifi and they snoop around a lot, poking into my browsing stuff. I like being anonymous. Windscribe ! Hats Off !Not a lot of servers to choose from, but hey ! I can't complain as I am having some of the best stuff. Thumbs up !! Keep up !
This VPN is a new kid on the block but it surely is an excellent VPN. I have tried so many VPN including Ivacy, NordVPN, ExpressVPN and PureVPN, Winscribe pro is probably the best value for the performance. Highly Highly recommended!!! I am so impressed with it's performance, I bought a lifetime subscription.
Windscribe VPN is a good VPN but now it does not provide lifetime subscription and your review can mislead people.
Lifetime subscription is often provided on sharewareonsale...I just bought it 1 hour ago :o)
but on Stacksocial right now a lifetime Windscribe Pro account can be had for $59. I've seen other offers, some as low as $29. I've got a free account that had a coupon giving it 50GB a month instead of the usual 10GB, and a pro account on a year's subscription that was heavily discounted. I use both, and find no noticeable difference in speed between them, although the free account has fewer countries.
I've been using the free version of Windscribe for a few days now to test it and so far it's better than IPVanish which is my current provider. It connects quicker, the UK speed is fine & no need to ReCaptcha when searching the internet. It has only dropped off once. I'm going to keep testing a bit longer before deciding but I do like having the free version to try out before buying. I'd like more VPN providers to offer that.
this vpn #$%%^ very lag slow disconnects. i am going to change to other new plan soon if it is still remains like that
Winscribe is buggy, and shuts down for no reason. It also has exceptionally slow speeds at times due to overuse. There appear to be about 4 servers they use in the entire United States. How slow? Well, while using their "Best Location" for my area, I tried to do a speed test. Without Windscribe: Ping of 23 ms, Download speed of 20.42. With Windscribe: I couldn't test, because the test kept timing out. It can take MINUTES for a webpage to appear at certain times. I'm here researching for a better VPN that actually upgrades as it acquires customers.
I am using this vpn for some months now and i am very happy with it. Fast support, fast speed and good price.
I think is the best option in the market. Functionality versus price. Love the speed & stability
So far everything is working well. One thing is to get 200mb/20mb I need to connect to a Canada Server. When I connect to a US server I only get 20mb/12mb. Also I like I can configure my Asus Router easliy so everything is behind firewall. Since this internet snooping law was done up and ISPs are selling my browsing they can screw off while I am using windscribe in my router.
Setup was a breeze, free server selection is pretty good, and speeds are awesome. I get 95% of my ISP speed. Upgraded to a premium account and couldn't be happier.
Simple design, pass DNS leak test, easy to use and no logs. The only problem may be is "Not Stable" for long time downloading.
Best vpn I ever used, fast speeds, great looking client, no dropouts.
I've been using Windscribe for about 8 months now and it does the job and it does it fast.... As I said, fast connection, it automatically searches for the fastest connection. For me, for instance, living in Belgium the fastest are mostly the Netherlands, Belgium(!) and France with an occasional UK server peeping in.... :-) But you can also choose out of a lot countries from where to start. And in these 8 months there was no downtime at all.
Good prices and dead simple to use.
I have put Windscribe through many different tests, i.e.DNS leak test, ipv6 leak, WebRTC, etc. and it has passed with flying colors. There isn't much speed loss with Windscribe, and I especially like the "double hop" option when using the desktop client with the Windscribe browser extension. I believe they are the first and only VPN to offer this service. The only downside? They are based in a "5 eyes" country (Canada). But hey, we can't all be perfect...
the best vpn ever known to me..Eric
Windscribe has provided a VPN service which I would rate as A + Those who do not yet know I strongly recommend testing it! The levels of encryption that he uses are among the highest available! Everything works very good and fluid. Strongly recommend!
This vpn is a very stable, very fast service due to it's simplicity. Openvpn makes it very safe and uncomplicated to use. speeds are close to 100% of my ISP. The only thing that i like to see is that the port forwarding is opened. apart from that no comments at all. it's more like 4.5 stars.
I have a lifetime subscription and I love the service support, they responded within few hours, good speed, no DNS leaks.
I was using this vpn on free account for some time and I had good speed and no DNS leaks, now I use premium service and I am very happy with them.
I started out first using this vpn with the free version. Used it for couple months and fell in love with the straight forward nature and simple usage of it. Kill switch and a hefty layer of protection are a must as well, which this vpn provides. The browser extension has some nice features. Hence, decided to upgrade it to the pro version, so that I can support the development as well. I've been using this vpn for 3 months now and I do not have anything bad to say about it. I use 10 mbit connection and at least I have not noticed any noticeable drops in my connection speed. Now I keep it on constantly when ever I use my computer or browse the internet. And the best part is that it is still constantly getting better as it is only a young vpn service.
Don't know what the other 2 guys are talking about, but I personally found the speeds to be very fast. Im getting 90% of my ISP speed. Had an issue with something (turned out its on my end) and their support staff answered my email within 10 minutes with a helpful suggestion, not a copy/paste response you usually get from other companies I tried.
I have a lifetime subscription, that I would rather pay per month for better service. ExpressVPN was 10x faster. I currently cannot torrent from US servers, which is fine because I'm closer to Canada west server than I am US west. Never the less, I get 40-60 kbps, which is 1% of my ISP full speed 45Mb connection... Soooo if you do connect to a US server while torrenting, they can somehow send a signal to disable internet to the modem entirely, requiring you to reset your modem to get internet back up. I give it 1 star for working, and one star for the security level of the VPN, but they lose 3 stars for basically being useless. Oh, and they can't pass geo restrictions or VPN/proxy detection for streaming services...
I've been using windscribe for a few weeks as a lifetime subscriber and haven't been impressed at all. Yes it is very easy to setup and pick your servers but they are not fast. I'm lucky if I get 10% - 15% of my actual DL speeds based on speedtest.
As a lifetime subscriber I have been quite disappointed with this service. Whether its connection speeds of the companies choice to police the internet and cut off p2p connections especially on US servers without informing the customer base.
Windscribe is cool. I've had some correspondence with them and they respond quickly and competently, and actually implemented a request I had. Their servers are quite fast too. Very promising.
Been using Windscribe for a few days now. Works as advertised, lots of free locations and speeds aren't bad either. If this keeps up, will definitely consider upgrading.
Bardzo dobry VPN. Wersja giveaway ma aż 50 GB!!! W porównaniu do pandy z 150 mb. Polecam z całego serduszka. Jedyny minus to dostępność.
Bonjour Déconnexion sans arrêt, Plus latence de 8 secondes. Windscribe est totalement nul. Ma note est bien évidement Zéro. Il va me falloir au moins dix ans pour télécharger les dix gigabits offert
Enfin un VPN sérieux et gratuit excellent pare feu, pas de problème sur la vitesse de votre PC allez comparer avec les autres. VPN... je suis passéde hydemyass à winscribre gratuit pour test.. ce serait bien 50 GB gratuit il manque un peu plus de pays au choix pour avoir 5 étoiles
Simplicité d'installation, volume de 10 Go correcte pour un gratuit. Seul souci pour moi, impossible de télécharger des torrent sans compte pro, sauf erreur de ma part. J'ai consulté l'aide mais pour paramétrer le logiciel de torrent, il faut un compte pro afin d'obtenir un mot de passe.
Nekem nincs bajom vele. Párszor előfordul, hogy ki és be kell kapcsolni a VPN-t, de nem probléma. 10 GB pedig elég jó mennyiség. Ami jó még benne, hogy nem bosszantja az embert, hogy vegyük meg a fizetős verziót.
Le système fonctionne sur les dispositifs Windows, Mac et Linux, ainsi que sur Google Chrome, Opera et Firefox. Bien qu'il ne propose actuellement pas de service pour les dispositifs Android et iOS, le site affirme que c’est pour bientôt.
VPN fun vagyok, gyakorlatilag az összes ingyenes szolgáltatást kipróbáltam, voltam előfizetője valóban nagy neveknek a VPN világában, a Windscrible VPN üzletpolitikája, vagyis hogy 10GB/hó ingyen/nincs naplózás, emellett 14 különböző VPN használata engedélyezett, ahogyan én tájékozódtam ennyire nagyvonalú ajánlatot megközelítőleg sem kínál egy vállalat sem. Androidra jelenleg a Proton VPN-nel váltva használom, rendkívül elégedett vagyok vele! Nincs szükségem előfizetésre, a 10 GB nekem így elegendő havonta.
Pas de soucis avec ce VPN gratuit.. J’espère qu'il fait le taf, mais pour l'instant pas de nouvelles des autorités mdrr :) 10 go/mois, c'est pas beaucoup mais c gratuit ! donc je serais très ingrat de me plaindre. je recommande
Même une fois le logiciel déconnecté,il me cause des problèmes avec ma connexion internet.J'ai dû le désinstaller.Le problème vient du firewall. J'ai payé 65.00$ canadien pour un abonnement d'un an et j'ai dû désinstaller le logiciel.
L'installation que ce soit sur PC windows ou linux, ou sur smartphone android est très facile. Seul bémol, pas de prise en charge d'un client 32bits ARM, donc pour le Raspberry Pi, c'est configuration manuelle requise.
Super VPN für wenig Geld. Standartmäßig 10GB Free, mit coupons kann man das monatliche Volumen sogar (dauerhaft) hochschrauben! Guter Support, flotte Geschwindigkeit, große Serverauswahl und leichte Bedienung. Bisher vollkommen zufrieden und keine Probleme gehabt.
simply the best : facilile d’utilisation même sur mon routeur , prix correct ,nombre d’appreils illimité , fonctionnalité intéressante ...etc je conseille vivement , seul bémol : p2p limité à 2 localisation pour l’instant.
Gutes Handling mit Firefox. 10GB in der Freeversion findet man selten. Geschwindigkeit und Auswahl der Server in der Freeversion besser als bei anderen Anbietern. Habe schon lange gesucht und endlich was brauchbares gefunden. Gute Konkurenz zu SyberGhost
LA fonctionnalité qui me permet de rester avec Windscribe est celle qui me permet de "resetter" ma limite de transfer sur le programme gratuit ou meme d'avoir un abonnement PRO seulement en utilisant la page pour "miner". Et oui, je la laisse ouverte sur mon autre ordinateur que je ne me sert presque pas et 3-4 jours plus tard... un abonnement gratuit! Merci Windscribe. p.s. le minage n'est pas terrible, il vous permet quand meme d'utiliser votre ordinateur.
+Nopeat yhteydet. +Helppokäyttöinen käyttöliittymä. +VPN Palomuuri +Maksullisella versiolla voi käyttää rajattoman määrän laitteita samalla tunnuksella. +Nopea ja asiallinen asiakaspalvelu. +Mahdollisuus luoda virtuaalinen VPN yhteyksellinen Wifi Hotspot (mikäli sinulla on tuettu verkkokortti koneessa) jota muut koneet voivat käyttää,asentamatta mitään VPN ohjelmistoa! Miinuksia ei heti tule mieleen. Jokatapauksessa mielestäni paljon parempi kuin NordVPN johon menin ostamaan 3 vuoden tunnuksen. Ikävä kyllä sillä yhteydet pätkivät jatkuvasti ja katkeilivat.
من أفضل برامج VPN على الاطلاق معا العلم انى الشركه جديده ومعا ذلك تنافس بقوة معا باقى الشركات الاخرة وتعمل بأستمرار على تحسين خدمتها المتميزه وانصح بشده بأستخدام هذه الشركه ودعمها ... وأرجو من الشركه أن تتيح سرفرات خاصه بى Streaming & torrent تحياتى الغاليه ودائما فى تميز
J'ai pris l'abonnement pro à 18 usd pour 18 mois .... et bien pas très reluisant ! téléchargement max à 250 kb/s alors qu'avec cyberghost je suis à 2.7 mo/s en vdsl 2. Je suis sur la Réunion et bientôt j'aurais la fibre, je renverrai un avis pour voir si il y a une différence..... Cordialement
Habe schon einige VPN ausprobiert..fast alle Machen den PC langsam..und Werbung ,,seufz.Windscribe..ist leicht zu bedienen,große Sicherheit..10 GB sogar bei kostenloser VPN.. .Überschaubar..auch für Adroid..habe es durch Zufall gefunden und bin restlos begeistert .Werde mir die Pro Version runterladen. Gute Arbeit muß auch entlohnt werden.Aber testet es erstmal selbst.
Grazie ad una promo ho pagato 20 euro circa l'abbonamento per 18 mesi. La uso da un pò e deo dire che funziona molto bene. Il plug-in chrome funziona e la banda non mi viene limitata particolarmente, scarico comunque a 1.6, 1.7 mb/s con l'adsl. Qualche episodio di malfunzionamento è capitato ma nulla di che. app iOS un pò troppo energivora la batteria cala vistosamente, ma penso siano tutti così. Per il prezzo pagato 10 e lode. La trasparenza e la protezione sono ok, e le prestazioni anche.
Usei o plano gratuíto por um tempo para testar o serviço e não o que reclamar. - Alta velocidade - Kill switch - Vários servidores pelo mundo - Multiplataforma Simplesmente a melhor VPN gratuíta e paga.
Raro VPN gratis, permette di scaricare fino a 10 GB e per me vanno benissimo...abbastanza limitato in download è ottimo per connessioni adsl limitate come telecom night e week end che più di tanto non vanno. Contro? se volete scaricare l'inverosimile non fa per voi.
Ho ottenuto questa licenza in omaggio e a dire la verità fino a non molto tempo fa non avrei mai speso soldi per una programma VPN. Se desideravo anominato mi affidavo a unn proxy o alo pseudol ''VPN'' integrato di Opera o a servizi gratuiti in rete. Ritenevo che la nvigazione su reti VPN fosse troppo lenta e instabile, ed invece con Windscribe sono rimmasto piacevolmente sorpreso. Semplicissimo da usare e installare, io mi collego dall'Itlia e riesce a collegarsi velocemente a qualsiasi rete, con un buon numero di opzioni e Paesi da sccegliere. Soprattutto però è veloce, una navigazione di poco inferiore a quella normale, stabile senza intoppi o cadute di connessione. Inoltre il firewall inteegrato è un 'ulteriore garanzia. Consigliato e credo che quando scadrà l licenza regalo lo acquisterò
لديهم خيارات متنوعة وممتازة - الخدمة تتطور بشكل اجابي البرنامج يعمل بشكل سهل ومريح ويدعم جميع الانظمه. سيرفرات متنوعة وسريعة. اسعارهم جيده جدا انصح بالاشتراك بالخدمة المدفوعة لما فيه من المميزات عن الخدمة المجانية.
خدمة ممتازة جدا فهي تجعل اتصالك آمن وحصين وتغلق جميع الثغرات التي يمكن من خلالها اختراقك أو كشف هويتك كما أنها تمنع ظهور النوافذ الإشهارية والملغمة المنبثقة أثناء تصفحك خدمة VPN عالية الجودة مثل تلك المقدمة من Windscribe تساعد المستخدمين في تجاوز الرقابة، بحيث يكون لديهم وصولا كاملا لشبكة الانترنت. وهي تتيح لك أن تكون أكثر حماية عند استخدام نقاط واي فاي العامة، ومن السهل مشاركة الملفات عبر القنوات المشفرة. تستخدم الشركة تشفير AES-256 مع مصادقة SHA512 ومفتاح RSA 4096- بت تمتلك Windscribe العديد من خيارات الدعم كذلك.لديهم إرشادات إعداد كاملة بحيث يمكنك معرفة كيفية إعداد كل شيء لأنظمة ويندوز، وماك، مع إرشادات أخرى ستأتي في المستقبل. أحد مزايا هذه الإرشادات أنها فيديو، بحيث يمكنك ابتاعها بسعولة. لديهم كذلك قسم للأسئلة الشائعة يمكنه الإجابة على عدد من الأشئلة الشائعة لدى الأشخاص. خدمة VPN لديها ملقمات تقع في جميع أنحاء العالم تشمل الساحل الشرقي والغربي للولايات المتخدة، بريطانيا، كندا، هونج كونج، فرنسا، وألمانيا. تقع الشركة في ريتشموند هيل، أونتاريو، كندا، وهي على مبعدة قليلة من تورنتو..أنصح الجميع باستخدامها
Fonctionne super bien en utilisant l'offre gratuite, on a droit à 50GB gratuit en ajoutant le code promo "50GBFREE" dans "have a voucher" !!! En tout cas c'est parfait, il y a un serveur français inclus dans l'offre gratuite rien à dire pour l'instant je n'ai vu aucune offre gratuite avec autant de data. Work great you can get 50GB free, you just have to add "50GBFREE" in have a voucher !!! Best free option in my opinion.
Verbindungen zu anderen Webseiten sind langsam, wenn man windscribe nutzt. Manche Seiten wie von den Microsoft-Diensten und Facebook vermuten einen Hack und sperren dann die Konten. Fazit: Finger weg von diesem Tool!
Wanneer Windscribe aan staat dan is het onduidelijk of de firewall aan moet blijven. Het downloaden gaat zeer traag, soms maar 25 kb per seconde. Bij gebruik popcorn time is de download negatief, rode downloadsnelheid. Is WS uitgeschakeld stijgt de snelheid naar 4 mb per seconde.
J'ai un abonnement d'un an à IBVPN. Suite aux critiques positives sur MalwareTips, j'ai téléchargé la version gratuite. Lien entre l'extension Chrome et l'application Windows pas évident au début. Ai regardé quelques tutoriaux. Fonctionne très bien, rapide, satisfaisant.
Si se pierde momentáneamente la conexión a Internet se desactiva windscribe, como vpn deja de ser útil, me ha sucedido en dos ocasiones y solo por casualidad me he dado cuenta de que estoy navegando sin vpn. Llega a ser peligroso.
Molt fàcil de configurar i d'usar. És una bona elecció per a mantenir la privacitat i la seguretat de la navegació a la xarxa. La meva elecció ha estat per l'amplada de banda que ofereix en la versió gratuita.
perchè spendere tot al mese se mi scarico qualche canzone e/o film? 10gb sono un bel po se se trovo files mkv allora sono tantissimi. se devo spendere quattrini beh, a quel punto noleggio e rippo quello che mi pare...buon servizio, un solo server disponibile, estendibile il numero dei gb se inviti amici(due per ogni amico), si per me è si...
Hervorragender VPN Service,auf PC und Android Geräten installiert,bis jetzt fehlerlos gelaufen.Dank !!
Working great, and have no connection failures
Эта VPN, базирующаяся в Канаде, предлагает возможность использования торрентов (на нескольких серверах), просмотр Netflix и анонимное использование веб-браузеров. И это практически все, что вам нужно от VPN.
С серверами в более чем 50 странах, Windscribe не обладает самой огромной сетью,но он делает неплохую работу , обеспечивая анонимность и обходя географические ограничения, включая великий китайский файервол.
А с доступными тарифными планами и бесплатной версией, он точно не подорвет ваш бюджет.
Windscribe предоставляет приложения для всех основных платформ, а также руководства по установке для роутера. Компания продает предварительно настроенные маршрутизаторы, если вы не хотите проходить весь этот процесс установки.
Как в платной, так и бесплатной версии, вы можете подключить несколько устройств одновременно, что делает Windscribe прекрасным выбором.
Благодаря технологии OpenVPN и шифрованию AES-256 бит, Windscribe предлагает надежное шифрование и полную анонимность. Они также предлагают подключение IPv6 к межсетевым экранам на стороне клиента; плюс все запросы DNS проходят через туннель , обеспечивающий полную защиту от утечки информации.
Помимо функций самого VPN, Windscribe также имеет несколько надстроек.
Например, они предлагают блокировщик рекламы; инструментAnti-Social, который удаляет записи с сайтов социальных сетей; инструмент Nonraceable, который удаляет рекламные баннеры с веб-сайтов, которые вы посещаете; и инструмент Split Personality, который меняет пользователя вашего браузера.
Для быстрого ознакомдения, вы можете прямо сейчас посмотреть видео, выложенное ниже. Или же сразу перейти на 01:50, чтобы ознакомиться с краткой инструкцией по использованию Windscribe.
Windscribe предлагает как платные, так и бесплатные варианты подписок.
Бесплатная версия ограничивается 10Гб в месяц и обеспечивает неограниченными подключениями. Тем не менее, количество серверов будет ограничено до 11 стран. Так как вполне вероятно, что данными серверами будут пользоваться много людей одновременно, то высока вероятность, что ваша скорость будет неочень быстрой. Поэтому, если вы хотите, чтобы скорость была быстрой, вам лучше воспользоваться платной версией.
Кроме того, бесплатная версия не позволяет настроить OpenVPN, а это означает, что вы не получите самый безопасный протокол, конечно если вы не приобретете Premium план.
Существует два вида платных подписок: на 1 месяц и годовая.
Если вас не устроит качество сервисаI, у вас есть три дня, чтобы вернуть платежy. Вам следует помнить, что возврат средств возможен только в том случае, если вы приобрели подписку у Windscribe напрямую, а не у посредников.
Все возвраты осуществляются в течении 30 дней после запроса.
Если у вас возникнут технические проблемы, единственный способ связаться с Windscribe - через систему обратной связи, а ответ на запрос может занять от нескольких часов до нескольких дней.
Вкратце, Windscribe предлагает пользователям большую часть того, что они хотят от VPN в плане безопасности, а в платной версии - молниеносные скорости. Вы сможете смотреть Netflix и анонимно просматривать веб-страницы на любом устройстве, которое вам нравится.
Их сервис немного уступает в связи с их ограниченной поддержкой клиентов (в которой есть только система обратной связи и нет live чата или возможности позвонить специалисту) и их политикой возврата денежных средств (которая доступна только в течение первых трех дней после покупки).
Если вы рассматриваете другие бесплатные VPN , вот несколько интересных вариантов.
