Windscribe: The Good
This is an impressive VPN, though less technically confident users may find it takes a little time to get accustomed to the settings.
Windscribe Server Selection
At first it looks like Windscribe only lets you select a country for your VPN, but press the little crosses to expand the selection and you’ll see cities, all with cool and appropriate server names.
Windscribe also has some unexpected features, including a killswitch – dubbed a Firewall – a choice of VPN protocols and the option to turn your laptop into a secure, shared WiFi hotspot.
The pleasant surprises don’t end there. Windscribe is one of the few VPNs we’ve tested recently to sneak past Netflix’s VPN-detection tools and stream video, and it also works with other US and UK streaming sites and services.
It’s leakproof enough that our leak tests couldn’t even work out our location or timezone. Not bad for a relatively cheap – or even free – VPN. Throw in the ad-blocking and malware-protection features, and it has a lot to offer.
