In this Windscribe VPN review, I will evaluate its free and premium version. Hopefully, it’ll give you an idea of what to expect from this Canada-based provider.

Windscribe VPN is a well-known virtual private network, beloved for its generous free version. It has apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS and supports routers, among other devices. However, just how good is this provider in reality?

To answer that, I’ll be looking at some other questions first, such as: is Windscribe VPN safe? Does it unblock Netflix? Can you use Windscribe for torrenting? And finally, does Windscribe keep logs?

Before we dig deeper, I can already tell that this service is reliable and secure. Windscribe VPN uses military-grade encryption and a robust kill switch. What’s more, it has a Stealth protocol that will help you unblock content in countries that restrict internet access.

The best thing about the paid version is the next-gen tunneling protocol named WireGuard. It will make your P2P downloads fast and your HD streaming smooth. Finally, having no simultaneous connection limits lets you share the account with family and friends.

Windscribe VPN review: should you pay for it?

Speed test and performance of Windscribe

According to our in-house speed testing tool, Windscribe provides some of the industry’s best speeds. In fact, you should expect to find among the Top 5 fastest VPN services. Since our tool collects data on a daily basis in different countries, you can rest assured that the average numbers below are not affected by random spikes or slumps.

Our tests have shown that Windscribe should be fast enough for gaming, torrenting, and streaming, assuming that your connection is decent. While the WireGuard protocol has the most impact on performance, Windscribe’s quality servers sure have played their role as well.

Germany server

Windscribe speed test results have shown that the only limiting factor is your internet connection. If it’s fast enough, this VPN won’t slow you down much unless you’re connecting to a really remote server on the other side of the globe.

With Windscribe VPN, you’ll be able to stream 4K (UHD), download large files within minutes, and delve into low-ping gaming.

Having said that, the WireGuard protocol is available to premium users only.

Windscribe servers and location list

Windscribe has 480+ servers in 60+ countries. While the global coverage seems to be good, some may doubt the server fleet size. But there’s no need to do that because all servers are physical and ready to provide maximum performance.

The majority of Windscribe servers allow P2P, save for those in India, Russia, and South Africa.

I’ll discuss Netflix in more depth later, but just so you know – Windscribe has four specialized servers for Netflix.

If you want the best possible speeds, you should connect to the closest server.

The list of servers available to free users has only 10 countries:

  1. US
  2. Canada
  3. UK
  4. France
  5. Germany
  6. The Netherlands
  7. Norway

Security – is Windscribe safe?

Those wondering whether Windscribe is safe can relax – this VPN has enough security and privacy features to be among the most reliable providers. More good news: the free version has almost the same level of protection as the paid version. It also makes sense to combine your client with a browser extension as those add even more helpful features.

Encryption and tunneling protocols of Windscribe

Windscribe VPN uses military-grade encryption, which is near-impossible to break. Even if your connection is intercepted by a third-party, cracking this code would take not millions but billions of years!

The protocols offered by Windscribe VPN are as follows:

  • WireGuard
  • Open VPN (UDP)
  • Open VPN (TCP)
  • IKEv2
  • Stealth
  • Wstunnel

WireGuard is the new state-of-the-art tunneling protocol that every provider is trying to implement right now. Apparently, Windscribe guys have done their homework, allowing you to enjoy top speeds and even greater security.

OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols are a good alternative in case WireGuard becomes unavailable for some reason.

Finally, those residing in countries where internet access is restricted will find Windscribe’s two “stealth protocols” handy. The first one, named Stealth, is essentially OpenVPN via STunnel. Sadly, it doesn’t work on iOS, so iPhone and iPad users are left with Wstunnel, which is OpenVPN via WebSocket.

Does Windscribe have a kill switch?

Asking “is Windscribe safe?” is almost the same as asking whether it has a kill switch. If your VPN doesn’t have one, it means your personal data can easily leak. Windscribe has a kill switch, and they call it a Firewall.

Considered superior to any regular kill switch by its creators, the Windscribe kill switch ensures that not even a single packet leaves your device in the event of a VPN malfunction.

Windscribe VPN Firewall Settings

In Preferences, you’ll have the option to allow LAN traffic with the Firewall turned on and also change its modes from Automatic (default) and Manual to Always On. The latter blocks your internet connection until you connect to a Windscribe server.

To sum up, Windscribe’s kill switch is better than most of its competitors. Should this VPN go down, your identity won’t be compromised.

Windscribe VPN split tunneling feature

The great news is that Windscribe has a split tunneling feature. With it, you’re able to choose which apps and websites to protect with a VPN and which ones you’re okay with being visible to your ISP.

That’s quite handy, especially with the apps that won’t work when you’re connected to your VPN.

The bad news is that at the moment, split tunneling is available only to Android users. Hence, those who use other devices miss out. However, Windscribe is working on introducing this feature to its Windows, Mac, and Linux apps.

Hopefully, this update is implemented sooner rather than later.

Does Windscribe VPN leak data?

In short, Windscribe VPN has no DNS, IPv6, or WebRTC leaks at all. To check, I ran some online tests, looking for any kind of leak – my IP address showing, or signs of my computer using the ISP DNS to resolve the query.

Windscribe VPN leak test – negative results

The image above shows my test results where I connected to a Windscribe server in the UK and checked for DNS, IPv6, and WebRTC leaks. As you can see, I couldn’t find any.

Where is Windscribe based?

Windscribe is based in Canada – one of the Five Eyes countries, where mass-surveillance is prevalent. As a member of this alliance, Canada can share its intelligence data with any other member of the broader Fourteen Eyes alliance.

With that said, Windscribe has a solid privacy policy and is yet to share any data that would allow identifying its client. In fact, there already have been dozens of requests from law enforcement, and all failed to extract any personal data. Therefore, as long as Windscribe keeps its no-logs policy, users should feel safe even under such surveillance-friendly conditions.

Does Windscribe keep logs?

Unlike other competitors, Windscribe doesn’t claim to be a “no logs policy” service. Instead, they make a different promise: no identifying logs. In other words, Windscribe does collect some connection and other user data, but it’s not a big privacy risk.

“We do not store connection logs, IP timestamps, or sites you visit”

You can read the above statement in their Privacy Policy. Whatever data this provider collects and stores are of no use to the authorities to identify you.

I’ve also found some positive transparency data: there have been around 400 thousand DMCA and 34 law enforcement data requests in 2018. Here comes the good news you’ve been waiting to hear:

Windscribe claims to have complied with exactly zero requests “due to lack of relevant data.”

For a more in-depth look at this provider’s logging practices, read Does Windscribe Keep Logs?

Anonymous purchase

Windscribe offers anonymous payments using Paymentwall gift cards or Bitcoin. What’s more, you can create an account without using an email, so there’s no need to bother creating a throwaway mailbox.

Naturally, Windscribe doesn’t ask for your name, address, or any other personally identifiable information. So it’s up to you not to include such data in your username and optional email fields.

Other technical features

Windscribe is rich with security and privacy features, especially if you use both the app and the browser extension of your choice.

Here are the most important ones:

  • R.O.B.E.R.T. (Remote Omnidirectional Badware Eliminating Robotic Tool). With it, you can choose which IPs and domains (ads) to block on all the devices you use with this VPN. It helps you reduce tracking, see fewer ads, and use fewer data.
  • Ad Blocking blocks all the annoying ads that you don’t want to see.
  • Secure hotspot lets your computer act as a secure wifi router.
  • Double Hop routes your traffic via two servers for an additional layer of protection.
  • Time Warp sets your browser’s time zone according to your chosen server location.
  • Location Warp sets your browser’s location based on your chosen server location.

And that’s only a few of them. You can easily check out the rest by installing the free Windscribe version.

Does Windscribe support my device?

Windscribe VPN supports your device or OS if it’s on this list: Windows, macOS, Linux (beta), iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Kodi, routers, and NAS servers.

You can also download Windscribe VPN for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera. I recommend using a browser extension with the app for that synergy effect. I love that Windscribe VPN added Opera and Edge to their set of add-ins, which is not so common in most providers.

One subscription gives you an unlimited number of simultaneous connections – a rare feat among premium VPNs.

When it comes to usability, all apps are fairly user-friendly, with privacy options that VPN enthusiasts will also appreciate.

You can connect to a recommended location with a single click

Both the desktop apps and browser extensions feature a minimalist design and look slick. However, the updated extensions removed the warmer colors from their palette and went for a more strict look, similar to that of mobile apps.

Windscribe for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Windows app looks like Windscribe for Mac. The home screen has an “On/Off” button for connecting to a server and a smaller “On” slider below to toggle the firewall.

Windscribe VPN home menu and settings

Pressing the drop-down button will give you a list of all possible locations that can be ordered by geography, alphabet, or latency. Finally, the hamburger menu will lead you to the connection and security settings under Preferences.

Windscribe VPN Windows app Preferences

Here you can select your connection protocol, firewall mode, DNS servers, and proxy settings.

Windscribe for Linux, still in beta, is console-based. There are clients for Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS distributions. The website also gives clear instructions on how to install the app on them.

Windscribe for Android and iOS (iPhone & iPad)

Windscribe mobile apps have a different design when compared to their desktop counterparts. They use a different palette and show the extended server list, starting with the best and the most popular ones before switching to the alphabetic order. There are also filters for your Favorites and Windflix streaming servers.

Windscribe iOS client main menu

However, the differences between the Windscribe for Android and iOS versions become apparent when we delve deeper into the settings. Not only are there fewer features when compared to the desktop versions – the iOS app barely has any of them!

Windscribe Android and iOS settings comparison

As you can see on the right, Windscribe iOS users get the Firewall and the option to change the protocol or port. Meanwhile, Android users get the native Always-on VPN feature for a kill switch (instead of a firewall) but are compensated with Split Tunneling and more.

The Android version of Windscribe lacks these features:

  • Firewall
  • Secure Hotspot (your computer becomes a secure wifi router)
  • Proxy Gateway (creating a proxy server on your network)
  • WStunnel protocol

Despite lacking some features compared to the desktop versions, Windscribe for Android and iOS is safe to use.

Windscribe for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera web browsers

Windscribe browser extensions have many unique features and should be used together with the app for maximum security and privacy. For example, the browser extension has a Secure.link Generator. You also get the Whitelist feature that disables the VPN on your chosen websites.

Windscribe Chrome browser extension

The Windscribe browser extension also offers plenty of extra privacy features that other apps don’t have, such as Ad Crusher, Malware Evader, and WebRTC Slayer, to name but a few.

Windscribe Chrome extension Privacy settings

With Ad Crusher, you’ll be able to block all the ads on your device. Using Malware Evader will help you block malicious domains, including malware-spreading or phishing sites. WebRTC Slayer will limit WebRTC requests to make it easier to prevent leaks.

Other platforms for Windscribe VPN

Aside from the major platforms, Windscribe also has apps for Amazon Fire TV & Fire Stick, Nvidia Shield, and Kodi (Android and Linux based).

There are options to manually configure this VPN for routers (DD-WRT, Tomato, Asus-WRT) and NAS (Synology, QNAP). You can even buy a pre-configured Windscribe router.

Since they provide a SOCKS5 proxy, you will find setup guides for uTorrent, Deluge, qBitttorrent, and Vuze torrent clients on the website.

Windscribe for Netflix and other streaming services

Windscribe will cover your basic Netflix streaming needs. It may even offer more, should you decide on getting a static IP address. However, there’s definitely room for improvement, and I hope to see some positive changes sooner rather than later.

Netflix

For those wondering how to pair Windscribe and Netflix, the provider has dedicated servers called WindFlix US, WindFlix Canada, WindFlix Japan, and WindFlix UK.

Windscribe VPN working with Netflix

When you’re connected to these, your internet traffic isn’t encrypted, which gives you better speeds but, of course, less privacy. As a matter of fact, the speeds should be good enough to stream in HD or even Ultra HD. On the other hand, if you’re using WireGuard, even the encrypted connection should handle 4K video quality.

However, while the speeds are good enough for HD across the globe, Windscribe only managed to unblock the Netflix US library for me.

Other streaming platforms

I didn’t have that much success with other streaming platforms either. For example, I had no luck accessing Disney+, BBC iPlayer, or Amazon Prime Video. But if that’s your goal, for a little extra monthly cost, you can purchase a Static IP to avoid blocking and detection.

For BBC iPlayer, a Datacenter Static IP ($2/month) should do. But streaming Amazon Prime Video could be much more expensive as it may require a Residential Static IP ($8/month).

Does Windscribe allow torrenting?

It’s totally possible to use Windscribe VPN for torrenting, but there are a few server locations with a crossed-out P2P icon.

windscribe vpn countries where torrenting is not allowed

As you can see, Windscribe doesn’t allow using South African, Indian, and Russian servers for torrenting. As a sidenote, be sure to avoid the VPN servers offered to free users. You can imagine how overcrowded and thus unsuitable for large file transfers those are.

Windscribe VPN offers a free SOCKS5 proxy connection, as well as a handy Split Tunneling feature. Unfortunately, the latter is Android-only. You can also get port forwarding, but only if you buy a static IP for $2/month.

With the Always-on Firewall that also acts as a kill switch, you should be safe from your ISP. At the same time, the speeds should be excellent if you use the WireGuard tunneling protocol.

So, is Windscribe good for torrenting? I’d say that it’s better than any VPN that doesn’t offer WireGuard, but clearly, there are better options for P2P.

Note: Before using any VPN for torrenting, consider that copyright infringement may have severe consequences in your country.

Windscribe deals and discounts for 2021

Windscribe premium is available at relatively low prices:

  • Free: 10 servers, 10 GB/month
  • 1-month plan: $9.00/month
  • 1-year plan: $4.08/month
  • Build a plan: $1.00/month/location

Windscribe pricing plans with best deals and discounts

Payment options include credit cards, Paymentwall gift cards, and Bitcoin. Since Windscribe account creation doesn’t require your email, you can buy and use this service completely anonymously.

All Windscribe deals have the same security features, including military-grade encryption, a kill switch, leak protection, and so on. They also allow an unlimited number of simultaneous connections.

You can test Windscribe premium one day for free. Once you have an account, log in on their website and find the chatbot Garry at the bottom right corner. Ask him for a free trial, and he’ll set you up.

Before you buy, make sure to read the refund policy carefully – your refund is only valid if you:

  • Purchase your VPN app directly from Windscribe (no third-party vendors like StackSocial)
  • Send your request within three commercial days from your subscription
  • Don’t exceed the 10 GB traffic limit

If you meet the following criteria, you can expect a 3-day money-back guarantee.

Is Windscribe free?

Although there are premium plans, the free Windscribe version is also available. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the best free VPNs available today.

With the free Windscribe plan, you get a powerful kill switch, anti-geo-blocking, IP address masking, and nearly everything else that a premium version has. You can also combine your desktop version with a browser extension – this way, your chances of staying private while browsing will increase even more.

However, when you opt for a free Windscribe plan, you can only connect to 10 countries. Moreover, you are limited to 10 GB/month and one device. You can use the free version without registering your email address, but your bandwidth limit will shrink to 2 GB.

Data limits and restricted connections may lead to potential privacy issues. However, just like the premium version, Windscribe free VPN doesn’t log anything that could identify you as their user.

Windscribe support

There are six ways for you to get help from the Windscribe support:

  • Submit Ticket
  • Talk to Garry
  • Setup Guides
  • FAQs
  • Knowledgebase
  • Subreddit

“Talk to Garry” is an English-only chatbot:

Windscribe support Garry chat bot

Basically, it’s capable of answering less complex queries like displaying the pricing plans or reminding a forgotten password. While chatting with Garry, I found a red Escalate to human! link, which presented me with a ticket submission screen. Nonetheless, despite all the help they try to give, there’s no real live chat support.

Windscribe’s Android client has a live chat support button, but it turns out this is just the same poor bot Garry from the desktop version, which also has trouble fitting in our smartphone screen, making his advice hard to follow.

The setup guides for different devices and OS’ have screenshots and are easy to follow. The FAQ is a bit lackluster. For example, it says nothing about unblocking Netflix and mentions Bitcoin in an answer that’s not directly related to anonymous payments. What’s more, you won’t find a word about WireGuard, which means that this FAQ hasn’t been updated for a while.

The knowledgebase is a more informative version of the FAQ with a helpful search bar, while the active Windscribe subreddit may be your fastest way to get help from a human. At least for me, getting a reply to me took almost one day.

Should you get Windscribe?

You should get Windscribe VPN, at least its free version. After all, it’s among the best free VPNs, and it isn’t going anywhere. It’s 10 GB/month data limit is generous, and the server selection is much better than most competitors can offer.

As to whether you should pay for Windscribe, which has only been around for several years, well, I believe it has great potential to climb up the ladder. My only major gripes with this service are the lack of live chat support, the disappointing refund policy, and the somewhat lackluster streaming options.

Here’s what you can expect from the premium Windscribe plan:

  • Military-grade encryption
  • WireGuard tunneling protocol
  • Robust kill switch (Firewall)
  • Streaming and P2P support
  • Apps for all major platforms
  • Unlimited devices

All things considered, I can recommend Windscribe for those who want privacy without sacrificing speed. This VPN can be a great choice for gamers, travelers, and torrenting fans. Most importantly, its free version will let you test almost all features first without committing too early.

    How can Wireguard work in China?


    1. avatar
      Jan Youngren Author

      Hello, Alvaro. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. There’s no definitive answer. Besides, WireGuard is not the best option in China. For the best results with Windscribe, you’d better use WStunnel or Stealth protocols.


  2. García Pancho

    Can I use Windscribe for IOS in China? There is no stealth or wstunnel protocol in the app for IOS, so my question is if it works in the app for IOS, if it works, what do I have to do to make it work?


    1. avatar
      Jan Youngren Author

      Hi, García Pancho. Even though Windscribe’s Stealth protocol does not work on iOS devices, you can still try its other protocol – Wstunnel, which should also perform when in China.


      1. García Pancho

        Hello, in IOS devices both the stealth protocol and the wstunnel protocol are not available, does it work using another protocol like wireguard?


        1. avatar
          Jan Youngren Author

          Hi, García Pancho. Please note that WireGuard is only available for Premium users. Nevertheless, I suggest contacting Windscribe’s customer support directly for any recent updates regarding available protocols on iOS and connectivity in China.


          1. Fuzhong

            What happens if I try to download torrents on servers that don’t allow?


          2. avatar
            Jan Youngren Author

            Greetings, Fuzhong. You will get very slow speeds or the download won’t start at all as the P2P traffic will get blocked by the VPN. 


          3. Yandue

            Windscribe has port 443 in OpenVPN UDP, OpenVPN TCP and Wireguard protocols, does it work in China using those protocols with port 443?


          4. avatar
            Jan Youngren Author

            Hey, Yandue. There’s no definitive answer when it comes to China. What works now might not work in the future. Your best option would be to contact Windscribe customer support to get an up-to-date answer on this issue.

            Does Wireguard work in China?


          6. avatar
            Jan Youngren Author

            Hello, Darío. Yes, WireGuard should work in China. But don’t hesitate to contact customer support and find out the details on how everything should be set up. The situation in China is constantly changing.


  3. Ana

    Would love to use windscribe but for some reason connecting to the server in my country is soooooo slow… drops my speed by about 80%. found complaints about this too from before so its seems to be an issue with whoever is providing the server.. using another VPN for the meantime


  4. Arjay

    Hi all! Interesting to see a nice selection of comments and views. I too have been happy with Windscribe and have found it to be very useful and safe to use. I’m still a VPN newbie but think it covers everything I need. Since I’ve been using it I’ve had no issues with any of ts servers of features.


  5. Tiso

    Windscribe is one of the better VPNs. You don’t need a tutorial to know how it works, no-logs, their prices are great, speed is always great, etc. A well-rounded vpn if you ask me.


  6. Mario

    I would like a lifetime feature on my vpn but I don’t think any company has it or is planning on adding such a feature. Maybe this could be unlocked after a client has been with a certain vpn for 10 or more years. Maybe as a thank you?


  7. Conley

    A+! Great VPN, prob one of the best i’ve used over the last couple of years. Some great features too, and most importantly the speeds are ace. I upgraded to the pro plan after using the free plan for a month, and was really impressed with the various upgrades I recieved. If you want to keep your private life private, or any personal information (especially of others) safe and secure, then Windscribe is a great investment


  8. Mia

    Have you checked out the latest update? Would be good to see a review or your thoughts on the new design and the overall changes. I’ve been a windscribe user for only a few months now but have found it really good and helpful to have.


    1. avatar
      Ethan Payne

      Hi Mia, I’ll definitely check out the newest Windscribe version and update my review accordingly. Come back in a couple of weeks – I’ll let you know what I think!


  9. Lila

    Windscribe has worked well enough for me and I’ve been happy with the outcome. I think a lot of users aren’t using it to its full advantage which is why they can’t appreciate it as much as others do. I’d recommend reading their website as there is lots of useful information on their page.


  10. Priyanka

    I have been using Winscribe for a month now and I must say that it is excellent for netflix as it offers great speed and the number of servers it currently has is pretty impressive


  11. Coryweb

    This app has always been one of the first 5 apps I install when I get a new device, now it is the first. It had been my favourite VPN for a long time because of their fast connection and ability to offer 256 bit AES encryption and the standard openvpn tunnelling protocol. I started with the free version then upgraded to Windscribe Pro and even got more features, more locations and faster connections. I saw some negative reviews about it on Reddit some of the problems which can automatically be fixed when they switched to the pro package. For example, the speed in the pro package is better than that of the free version. You may not notice this because they are almost the same thing until you upgrade. People should stop criticizing what they have not paid a dime for


  12. B Noone

    you must not have actually used Windscribe, It is blocked from bank sites and will not connect to dozens of sites. I am using Pro and have reset or disconnect many tomes an hour. Using Telus I get slow service and immediatly speed up when I turn Windscribe off.


    1. García Pancho

      Windscribe for IOS works in China? There is no stealth or wstunnel protocol for the IOS version, so my question is if it works, if it works what do I have to do to make it work?


    2. Ethan Payne

      Sounds like you’re having Windscribe connection issues that might not be related to the VPN itself. Here’s a troubleshooting guide if your Windscribe is not connecting. Hope it helps!


  13. Koy

    Loving Windscribe! It’s really easy to use and has a ton of great features which isn’t often included in other VPN packages. The speeds are good, the features are amazing, and the security systems in place? Top notch! Definitely one to recommend!


  14. Joe

    The prices for Windscribe are some of the best I’ve seen and their service is among the best I have tried out. Netflix US works great, haven’t tested UK. The Garry bot is annoying at first but you get used to it.


  15. Jay EJuarez

    I agree with your review that their customer service support needs a lot of help, but besides that, Windscribe is my favorite VPN. They back up all of their claims of speed and security and if you sign up for a year, the $4.08 a month is a competitive price. I’ve used them for a year now and highly recommend them.


  16. Qian K’ung

    I wanted to try Windscribe VPN, given the low cost, starting at $1.00 and was going through a couple of reviews online. You seem to give it a very high rating of 8/10, but some of the reviews I came across online on other websites don’t give it more than 4 or 6 due to slow speeds. Restore Privacy gives it a 1.5 rating, which is way too low. I am quite confused now.

      When it comes to VPN speeds, there are many factors at play. Your computer hardware, router, ISP, and physical location, as well as the VPN server’s load and quality, can all influence your speed. This means that different users may experience entirely different results, which may have been the case with other reviewers.

      The good news is that you can give Windscribe a risk-free test drive – they offer an (admittedly, limited) free version that will help you make up your mind.

    Well, it’s as safe as a Canada-based VPN can be. As long as you stay away from those servers with the crossed-out P2P icons when you use Windscribe for torrenting, that is.

    Windscribe VPN is amazing! To me it really doesn’t matter that they are based in Canada, it’s very safe and works well with Netflix. Give it a try people! It won’t disappoint.
