Windscribe is a virtual private network (VPN) service with a number of available subscription plans ranging from free to higher monthly subscription prices. This service anonymises your internet traffic and prevents it from being observed or recorded. It's also a great way to get around content restrictions for users in a country where internet use is censored. As an added bonus, it also blocks ads.

A simple VPN with good data allowances

If you've used other VPNs before, you'll be pretty familiar with how Windscribe works. The client is small and easy to use, although installation is a little more complicated than it is with some very simple VPN services. The service's privacy policy is both short and strong, with good protections for user privacy in an easy-to-understand document. Like many other services, this one offers a relatively limited number of locations for some of its plans, which can limit you if you're trying to access content restricted to a particular location. On the other hand, data allowances, especially for the free plan, are very generous. If you want to customise your experience, the client does offer you some control over settings.

Easy to use and robust

Windscribe has a strong privacy policy and generous data allowances for its free plan, making it a good choice for starting VPN users.

Windscribe protects all of your computer activity like browsing, Skype, email and p2p from prying eyes.

Windscribe is a desktop application and browser extension that work together to block ads and trackers, restore access to blocked content and help you safeguard your privacy online. Traveling abroad and want to access your favorite entertainment content as if you were home? We've got you covered.
