    How does this compare to Winscribe? I'm guessing it's much better judging by Proton email.

    I have Winscribe paid so I don't get any limits. I am thinking about switching to Proton VPN though just because of their solid reputation with their email service. Are there any users that have used both Winscribe and Proton VPN who could tell me if it's worth switching to Proton VPN from Winscribe?

    One detection on VT so I'm pretty sure that's a FP: VirusTotal

    I use both free versions so no complain.

    I maybe wrong here

    If you use the paid ProtonVPN and its paid Proton email service you have to use a single account for both services. Now, if you happen to forget to pay your ProtonVPN your account will be suspended and this will means you have no access to your Proton emails too

    Hello I have both Windscribe & ProtonVPN and there is no doubt in my mind that ProtonVPN is the most secure and fastest.

    I don't know about this but the version 1.2 has some:
    VirusTotal
    Btw Proton(paid)provide you more protection than Windscribe(secure core and tor servers)

    Secure Core is just another fancy name for double-hop VPN. Windscribe also has it but is implemented differently. It needs the desktop app and the browser to do the double-hop.

    Also, Windscribe has more servers in more countries as compared to ProtonVPN.

    As for Tor you can just run Tor browser will do after all any connection through it will slow the internet speed. If you connect a VPN to Tor it slows your internet speed even further
