TrustedReviews

If you’re after a free VPN, Windscribe is well worth adding to your arsenal, and is the best free option now that CyberGhost has withdrawn its free service from new users.

- K.G. Orphanides, TrustedReviews
Expert Reviews

Windscribe is perhaps the best free VPN out there, with a strong set of features, clear privacy policies and respectable performance. It’s not expensive to upgrade to the full, paid-for service either. The design perhaps isn’t as polished as on some big commercial VPNs, but it hits a nice balance be...

Even the free version may suprise you! Windscribe gives us what we do need. Servers are extremely fast. It works great with Netflix. However, torrent and Popcorn time download speed may let you down.

Windscribe is perhaps the best free VPN out there, with a strong set of features, clear privacy policies and respectable performance. It’s not expensive to upgrade to the full, paid-for service either. The design perhaps isn’t as polished as on some big commercial VPNs, but it hits a nice balance between simplicity and advanced controls, making this a great all-rounder.

You can also take advantage of security features like a built-in ad blocker, the same encryption as is available with the premium version, and its zero logging policy. The free version may not be one of the best VPN services around, but it will certainily get the job done in a pinch.

VPN Analysis

Great for ensuring privacy on the internet

from VPN Analysis

The company’s commitment to privacy and its creation of a wide range of free tools is really impressive. However, the speeds that the app achieves are not so hot. There’s also the possibility that the much faster browser extension isn’t applying the same level of encryption.
