Need a VPN... windscribe is the only VPN you will ever need. Started with the free plan, and it was so exceptional that when I’ve seen the lifetime sale, I made the switch to paid service. Never looked again for another VPN. It worth every penny.

I needed to trial VPN Providers and Windscribe were promising, in that, considering they have a free version offering 10GB limit a month, it can be pretty convenient. The issue is that the free trial version’s 10GB limit can confusingly disappear. For example, I had 4.9GBs remaining when watching some Sport, then at around 35-40mins windscribe’s app warned me that 0.9MB was remaining. This is simply not possible for 4GBs to vanish, well at least considering that previously I was able to watch 2 full 100mins sessions that used 5.1GB. Like all services you get what you pay for, and that brings me onto the service, even though I had contacted Technical Support, I was asked the same questions within the support’s responce email, this was a little annoying - it means that the support person...

A lot of other VPN services business model relies on annual subscriptions or alternatively high priced monthly subscriptions. Windscribe, although offering this, also offers the opportunity to customize and create your own plan to your desire; this includes the amount of servers you want to route your connection through as well as if you want to have unlimited data or not for a dollar more. Furthermore, they give you the option to test out the service without you needing to pay anything, although limited to a few servers. I have used many other private network tunneling services in the passed and so far Windscribe has seemed to be the best option for me. I am currently on the Windscribe custom plan with one UK and one US server billed monthly at $3 (~£2.30). I average around 100 mbps ...

Best VPN service. I have tried PrivateVPN, NordVPN, PureVPN and now I stick with Windscribe even if I have another paid subscribtion. I use it daily in Firefox and IOS. Very good speeds and software. Keep up the good job !

Their website says split tunneling but you have to click it to find out it's not on Windows yet. Their chat bot says it is coming for Windows in the 2nd quarter of 2019 but that's long gone. I pinged support and they said "we're working on it and will provide more details once they become available". Corporate jargon. In other words it's not coming and you're not taking it seriously enough. The bot still hasn't been corrected either. Won't be spending a penny with these plums.

Another reviewer mentioned the sudden disappearance of the 10GB allotted per month on the free plan. Same thing happened to me. I was giving the service a trial run. My 10GB lasted less than a few hours. It dropped from 10GB to 5GB really fast. I left it at around 5GB. Returned to my computer later and found a message saying it had all been used up. I had barely done anything. That and some of the responses here on Trustpilot by their customer service department have led me to question signing up. A little advice to Windscribe: rudeness and sarcasm don't endear you to anyone. Even if you are in the right, it might be best to at least be professional.

I logged a support ticket over 5 times. Still no response

It does its job.... but you don't get the speed you get from your ISP. My average speed through the VPN is 4Mbps, when my ISP is 200Mbps. DPL

Windscribe is a marketing scam Windscribe is probably one of the worst options for customers. They have a high price compared to top services like Surfshark, Cyberghost, NordVPN, Privatevpn or Ivacy. They only have THREE days for a refund if you are not satisfied with their service, but if you ask for a refund they do not respond for three days to your email and - no refund. They give false information to customers on the site. Windsribe does not have Stealth mode or IP obfuscation, you can read this in detail on many blogs written by real VPN experts. There is no Port forwarding or static IP address unless you pay extra for the base price, which is not on offer. They have very slow internet traffic and a frequent drop in internet connection, and almost every day you get a warning for s...

This VPN offers good speeds for a reasonable pricing. There is a student offer available either. I do not really notice any delaying when connected to the VPN when I connect to a server which is located in the same continent. The delay when connected to another continent is very minimal. I especially like the extra features called ROBERT, which block ads, trackers, malware and cryptominers (with some more blockers being available), and being able to turn those on and off separately. The adblock blocks all well-known advertisements but some advertisements of websites themselves (so not using Google Ads or alternatives) will still appear.

I had Windscribe for a while now and it's a pretty good VPN. I used the Custom Plan option and it was perfect for me. Customer Support was excellent. The speeds are fast enough for daily use.

One of the best VPNs. 15 FREE GB of data that renew every month is enough at least for my personal uses. You just press a button in the client and everything works as it should. And I don't need any subscriptions to use it. So it's definitely worth a try.


Jan 28, 2020 10:51
I thought I'd written a negative review about Windscribe. I wanted to update it but I couldn't find it. So here's my update: I had determined not to renew my subscription because I experienced many disconnects with my Win10 computer (but not with my Win7 computers).And I received numerous emails from their supposed tech person, which were all useless. But by the time I had spent LOTS of time researching other VPNs--and deciding against them--the Windscribe problem with Win10 had ceased. So I did end up renewing. In my opinion, Windscribe has the best and best priced VPN available. And I researched (and tried) LOTS. Now my only complaint is that when I renewed, their form in very tiny letters announced that my subscription is now auto-pay/renewal. And there is no simple way to change t...

What's great: - You can subscribe for as low as $2 / month (Not annual commitment). It's the cheapest subscription out there - They have the best VPN Chrome extension. I haven't tried their Firefox extension yet but potentially it should be the same performance. - Great speed What's bad: - Their Android app for my Android phone can't reconnect upon reboot. What will make it 5 stars? - Fix the Android app auto-reconnect function Update: - They already fix the Android auto-reconnect function

Recently i have become more concerned about my online privacy with the recent data breach's from some well known ISP's. After speaking to a colleague who recommended Windscribe i haven't looked back. The network is very fast and allows some quite advanced features including blocking dangerous websites etc.

Really easy to use but only get 10GB free, I pay for this now and get unlimited so recommend if you’re happy to pay... they do really good student discount

I am using the VPN for 2.5 years now. 10GB for free is a good deal. However, I needed more traffic, so I purchased a custom plan with four servers + R.O.B.E.R.T for 4 USD/month, no annual subscription. For this money, the service does its job pretty well.

Windscribe is a good and reiable vpn, its cheap and i havent had any problems with it so i 100% recommend everyone to try it out.

Have been a member for over two years (lifetime). Good speeds for various uses. Works with socks5! Many servers and good strong documentation. The client has worked on every platform I have tried (iOS,MACOS, Windows). I like the Robert functionality in that you can configure security by device and block malware ads etc. I have uses many vpn services from stack social and this is my favorite one and I recommend it to everyone, they own their service. A+ guys and thanks for the updates and new features you keep adding, we really appreciate the hard work.

This VPN is fast. and the customer support is really good. I really enjoy this product much more than some of the other VPNs I paid for.
