Windscribe is probably one of the most reliable vpns i've used in years. I never write reviews, but this one is worth it. Very good speeds and connections with their different servers, lots of good security and general features, all at a price that is what I call very reasonable. I've recommended Windscribe to others and they've all had good experiences. I think overall, Windscribe is probably the best and only VPN you'll find that provides you with everything you need.

Windscribe VPN is one of the most popular VPN providers that allows you to use the Internet anonymously.
Windscribe encrypts your browser activity, blocks ads and unlocks entertainment content.
With it, You can:
Stop regularly monitoring and controlling your online activities and enjoy confidentially, Unlock blocked content in your region. The system changes your IP address and allows you to simulate activity from different countries;
Along with the VPN-application, a special browser is provided.
VPN makes your Internet surfing completely anonymous. Windscribe VPN encrypts all work on the network, does not save logs.
Stop the leakage of personal data. Using public access points (public wi-fi), You will prevent the theft of confidential information by hackers. In addition, using the R. O. B. E. R. T. VPN module blocks malware and advertising on all your devices.
It is assumed also free use of VPN-service with reduced functionality in the number of countries and traffic.

Mostly FAKE reviews on this page!
DO NOT TRUST WINDSCRIBE!
This company has a robust marketing campaign which includes "Best VPN" pages that appear to be impartial, but are in fact published by them. They advertise "the best speeds," but I have never been able to get speeds of more that 5% of my best speed when not connected to their VPN. In other words: Connected to Windscribe - 15MBps; not connected 225MBps! They push their yearly plan, because they know monthly customers will quit after the first month.
The customer service for this company is absolutely HORRIBLE!
UPDATE regarding response from the company:
Their response actually delights me—it shows the public how unprofessional these people are!
If I had a customer that was this dissatisfied, I would go to any length to find a solution, rather than badmouth them online.
If you want to do business with an attitude like this, call Windscribe! Oh, I forgot, they don't publish their phone number!

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.

This company is quite generous when giving free accounts 30GB/month. Not sure if they steal personal data but I hope not. I'm happy with it now and will buy it some day.
The connection is very stable, the app is very easy to use on Mac and works seamlessly.

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.
Review by SuperCerealSteph Highett4 months ago
A cheap and reliable VPN.
There are 2 options, free or paid.
Free allows you to use up to 2GB of data (without email), and 10GB of data (with email).
Pro is around $3.60 USD per month for default plan, or $1.45 USD per month for custom plan.
Note: Refund period after payment is rather limited (3days or 10GB, whichever comes 1st). Do test with free version before purchase!

Great VPN for me
I used 50GB Free
NO DNS/IPv6 or WebRCT leaks. 40+ servers at high speeds.
Android/IOS/Windows/Mac apps are very ease to use.
Strong with Chrome en Firefox plugins. Fast connections. No dropouts, great add filtering and save firewall option.

Windscribe is hands down one of the best VPNs available it's the cheapest and fastest VPN i know i personally only use windscribe to connect to the US and use Netflix so i used a build your own plan so i have access to their Netflix servers only for $2 a month and unlimited data you can't find a deal like that anywhere else I've also never had any problems with speeds and this is coming from a person with bad internet

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."

Review by Ivailo5 months ago
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.
Review by Silvija Shary5 months ago
Removed miner and credits without notice or compensation for those that had mining credits built up. Plain and simple theft if you ask me
reply to Windscribe, you say I had 2 months notice. where was this notice, should an email not be sent to do this? I received no such email hence no notice
Second reply: There was no email from you and how damn rude your response here was. I would have considered paying for your service if you had been better with your response but with that attitude you can go to hell, there are many alternatives to you. Also there are alternative miners you could have switched too rather than keep all the monero earned by users. Coinimp for example

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.
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!!!!

The app works very well, and is easy to use. I use Windscribe to quickly switch from US to Canada to UK all the time. The desktop software works very similar to the mobile app, so the transition from one to the other is seamless.

I used Windscribe for long time and the service is good with many servers around the world, good security and privacy, i can access many restricted sites. In addition, it supports torrenting and can bypass VPN block in some countries. Winscribe supports all of my devices and easy to use with browser extensions that make its use more easy and accessible. Windscribe offers you generous free plan to test all features and static IP address
The speed of the servers need more improvement
The price needs to be reduced

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.
Review by Kulbant Wauneka6 months ago
I like this VPN service. The overall quality of their service is great but, their server’s speed isn’t the highest & they need to add more servers.
They offer a fantastic 10 GB free monthly account with validating your E-mail address. So, you can test their service before paying.
Review by Joseph Torian Hariz6 months ago
Good applications, but bad support.
I really like Windscribe because it is stable and has a good amount of servers for a good price.
The only bad thing is the awful support, they can 'cherry pick' over which posts to answer in the Discord and Reddit. They can also be pretty rude to some people's criticism too.
