I've been using WS for over a year here and I can only recommend it.
Before settling with WS I tried 2-3 others (including NordVPN). I found them to be slower (software wise) + sluggish overall.

Above all I like the fact that WS does not waste money on some shitty TOP10 sites that serve no other purpose than to sell you VPN which may not be V"P"N at all. Internet is full of "no log policies" getting proven wrong.
Can somebody tell me why PureVPN is still in business when they lied to their users? Does not make sense at all...
Yes, I read some articles about PureVPN...I dont know, why this company still exist...About Windscribe I never heard, but its positive because ads about VPN is so aggressive...

They exist because they own a bunch of VPN review sites like vpnranks.com

Funny enough, in their "review" of WIndscribe they say we keep connection logs and Canada is a bad jurisdiction, you know, because of the whole "5 eyes" bullshit.


Didn't stop them from cooperating with the FBI thou, even though they're not in a "5 eyes " country.

  • Auto-connect to a preferred region - Windscribe has this I only see "connect to recent location"
  • Connect on insecure wireless connections - Windscribe has this I don't see the option
  • R.O.B.E.R.T. = any way to configure it right from the app and not the website?

  • The most recently connected location is very likely to be your preferred location. Most people don't move around contents on daily basis.
  • This feature exists in our 2.0 apps, which are currently only iOS and Android. This is being added to the Wind/Mac apps in the upcoming update, along with a suite of other features like split routing (network/per-app), MAC spoofing, and a few other things.
  • Has to be managed through our website

Hey Windscribe, of course your product is very fast and giving solid performance. I am using it on my pc since last 2 years. But there is problem in my android device. In my Redmi Note 5 pro ( 6gb ram and 128 gb storage), windscribe alwasy gives me a problem. I dont know whether it is a bug or not but when I turn on windscribe in mobile app, after 4 to 5 minutes it automatically get turn off. Then I need to turned it on manually. And this is very weird.

Holy cricket, MAC spoofing! Is this coming in the very next update? I would buy even when NordVPN subscription is still alive.

Indeed, this is gonna be a MAJOR update. We've been working on it for the last 8 months. It will also feature a "Windscribe-free" mode, where you can use the app without an account with your own OpenVPN configs. It works with all competitor VPNs, so in theory you could use Nord servers with our app, and use all the features of it. Except why ruin a good thing?

Disable battery optimization for the app. Your OS is likely killing it to save batteries.
I never use Battery optimization as this phone having 4000mah which is already more than enough in without battery saving or optimization . And problem is only for Windscribe and not for other VPN.

Recent versions of MIUI include built in battery optimisation for apps, which works even when your phone is not in power saving mode. You can however, disable this individually for any app. Go to Settings -> Installed Apps and then select an app. If you scroll down, you will see the option Battery Saver. Click on it and select "No restrictions," to disable it for that app.
