Description

Windscribe is much more than a VPN. It's a desktop application and browser extension that work in conjunction to protect your online privacy, unblock websites, and remove ads and trackers from your everyday browsing. With Windscribe, you'll never mess with confusing settings and options menus again; just turn it on on your desktop once, and it's good to go in the background forever. Apart from the easy-to-use interface, one of the biggest benefits of choosing Windscribe's service is that it provides unlimited downloads and unlimited simultaneous connections. You'll find that most VPNs limit you to a maximum of five devices (if that), making Windscribe's offering a great choice for owners of multiple devices and small businesses alike. It's also touted for its above average anonymity, including a strict no-logging policy and anonymous sign-up that doesn't even require as much as an email address. Why the paid version over the free version? The paid version offers unlimited downloads and unlimited data — making it well worth the purchase. It's no surprise that Canadian-based company, Windscribe, is one of the most recommended VPNs on the market — check out the reviews below for yourself.

How is the product in terms of privacy?
From their privacy policy:
When you pay for a premium account, we store the transaction ID of your payment for a period of 30 days for fraud prevention purposes.
We store total amount of bandwidth your account has consumed in 1 month period, which is reset every month on the day of your registration. This is used to enforce free tier limitations as well as prevent abuse.
We also store a timestamp of your last activity on the Windscribe network, this is done to weed out inactive accounts.
For the duration of your connection we store the following data in a temporary location: OpenVPN username, VPN server connected to, time of connection, amount of data transferred during the session. This data expires and is discarded within 3 minutes of session termination.
If for some strange reason you decide not to use our service anymore, the only piece of information that will remain is your username, password and email address (if you provided it).

Appears this is still up with 6 days remaining.

Windscribe seems to be on the level in the deepest sense security/privacy-wise, but, for me, there is sometimes the appearance that the company is attempting to find ways to recoup assets from giving the service away to so many. So what I mean is I wouldn't be surprised if Windscribe has played Facebook's dangerous games with data and so on, and I can see why someone would want a more serious VPN. As an example, I have an account that is eligible to use 50 GB a month that I rarely use, but this account was built 100% on giveaways. So, Windscribe reached millions with the giveaways but earned no money. It feels like something has to give. Well, this kind of sale seems like a great way to bring people into the service with a more legit promise of a single great price for unlimited devices. Glad to see this model for growth for the first time over the constant bandwidth giveaways. Great price, and I hope that this type of deal brings more credibility to the service and also a higher level of security conciousness to the company...

I will be surprise and shock if Windscribe caught for sharing data with Facebook. Can anyone confirm if Windscribe has any connection with Facebook?

Apologies, I didn't mean that Windscribe is sharing data with Facebook, rather wondering if they may have sold or shared some of the less reveailing data in the past with or to advertisers or who knows etc. I don't think the company is at all connected to Facebook, although someone else may know better. Even if W/S has sold some (low level browser usage etc.) data, the company still seems on the level to me to this point in time, and I am confident with the service. This is why I hope the service will find monetary success to accompany its rapid growth. The offer seems to me like a very good deal for the service...

Lifetime licenses are basically a pyramid scheme, They are only feasible when the user base is growing at a higher rate than the expenses to develop and maintain the software. Otherwise they are making loss. This loss can either be compensated by investors or loans (who finance the burning of capital) or by generating other income like advertising or selling big data.

This is well known internet business model (series A, B, C. D private investments before IPO or Sell-out)

Yes and it doesn't matter. $60 is still good even if they go out of business in 5 years. I had my lifetime license since 2016, bought it for around $50 and it's already paid for itself, just $25 a year and it's only getting cheaper. Staying with one VPN for years isn't the safest thing to do anyway. If my lifetime license lasts me for another 3 years I'm happy.
