Hi,
What you think about these 2 VPN Services ?
In my personal Experience Windscribe offer more locations and also better for Countries with censorship and DPI.
In other hand Proton significantly faster and offer more features like Secure Core ( additional protection against VPN server Compromise ) & Tor over VPN .

I never ever had problems with Windscribe. The free- are fast and the premium servers are even faster. Windscribe scores also better in all points of the comparison chart created by That One Privacy Guy (That One Privacy Site | VPN Section). This chart also says that Windscribe is safer(?). Maybe the "additional protection" of Proton is only marketing. You say that Proton offers more features. But let's be honest: Do you need them?

Never heard about Proton VPN. But what about privacy in ProtonVPN. Generally all vpn service say that they don't keep logs but they may in fact :) What about price? It is also important. Windscribe VPN offers a lifetime subscription at cheap price. What about support? Some vpn services have a really bad support. Windscribe has a good support. The owner of Windscribe is Yegor Sak, a nice guy.

Proton VPN is new product of Proton mail team (end to end encrypted mail)
They all say we don't keep logs but who can verify that :D
My main issue is speed and Proton VPN win in Download , Upload and Ping in my own tests.

Proton is a new player, but profits from solid CERN expertise. The price is on the high end, but worth it considering the features. I'm sure it won't be oversold like with most of the cheap-o providers. Their e-mail service has also worked well so far, without any reported compromises like Hushmail e.g. PFS is a great feature. Switzerland isn't part of the Five Eyes either.

Windscribe is a great multi-purpose VPN, but incorporated in Canada for inexplicable reasons. Running perfectly fine for the time being, but Yegor keeps overselling with those lifetimes as standard and that is bound to come and bite him in the posterior at some point in time. A steady income is needed to pay for good servers and there is just no way around that.

Last year in December I was at hard choice to buy a PureVPN lifetime or Windscribe VPN. What did I make? I bought both of them for $ 100 (it was a good offer plus I applied %20 discount coupon) :)

ProtonVPN's Secure Core is another name for double-hop which is available in Windscribe too

In ProtonVPN you can run double-hop in browsers without extensions like Brave, Epic Privacy Browser etc whilst Windscribe need its extension to run the double-hop feature. In Windscribe case you cannot use double-hop in browsers like Brave and Epic Privacy Browser which don't support extensions.

I bought only because they offered a lifetime plan. Otherwise I didn't ... I don't need to buy any vpn services indeed. I have a forum where we host VPN giveaways like MT does. They always give me a 1 year subscription for free as a gift. We have made: Cyberghost, Nord, Vypr, Le Vpn, ibvpn, Cactus, PIA, hidemyass Windscribe, Security Kiss, Vpn Master, Safer Vpn, HideIPvpn, Hideme.ru, worldVPN. Today we have closed RA4W VPN. I have just send an invitation to Proton VPN. Let' see what they say

We have also made for antivirus (KIS, Avast, dr web, trusport, esmsosft), programs like Revo, Total Uninstall Pro, hd sntinel... Honestly I am fed up doing them. For last 8 months we have made about 60 giveaways. Our forum is in Russian and it's big problem to bring vendors as all of them prefer English forums.

Well, 60 giveaways in 8 months don't sound like it was that much of a problem. :D

Yes, of course. It is a lot of work and doing it all by yourself doesn't make it any easier. I wish I could help you, but my Russian comes down to да and нет and ends at Спасибо. :p
