    I like Windscribe, because the owner posts a lot on Reddit and he’s quite frank in his comments.

    However, I don’t know why they keep offering so much for free users (Linux client, 50/60GB monthly traffic with promo code, even the option to earn extra for those willing to mine crypto-currency in the browser) and those cheap lifetime deals, because it’s hard for me to understand the business model of either for a service whose top priority must be their user’s privacy.

    Having said that, I used Windscribe in the past but I’m not doing so currently as their browser extension is a bit buggy (frequent page refreshes neither the user nor the web-page asked for). The free account was always enough for what I used it for, but I could see myself buying a yearly subscription or a lifetime offer if I had a greater need for it.

    I don´t know how serious this test is, but it gives a lot of facts

    The conclusion is disappointing:

    “We strongly advise against using the provider. Neither as a VPN service, nor as an ad blocker, nor as an e-mail provider. Your data automatically becomes the property of the provider and its business model lets it sell on the market for sensitive data. The premium payment model also does not differ in terms of the conditions of the free tariff, and it can not be guaranteed that you receive actual anonymity. Do not expect any anonymity at Windscribe! Never use the service for sensitive use of the Internet!”

      I can’t speak about a lot of that’s mentioned there mostly because I don’t know how much of it is verifiable or not, but at least one point is patently ridiculous and at least for me it throws into question the impartiality of that review, possibly the whole web-site.

      Many other VPN services have an affiliate program, such as the top five ranked services on their page, VyprVPN, Perfect Privacy, GooseVPN, NordVPN and ZorroVPN. I’m curious why this website a) claims to have the moral high ground to question any and all positive reviews that may be found elsewhere on the internet for that one VPN service they don’t appear to like, when they themselves are affiliates of their own top-ranked VPN services* and b) not even mention the existence of affiliate programs in those other reviews.

      *) The url hxxps://vpn-anbieter-vergleich-test.de/link/vyprvpnpremium/ found in the VyprVPN review redirects to the referral link hxxps://www.goldenfrog.com/de/vyprvpn/special/premier-annual-40?offer_id=56&aff_id=1696&source=vavt&TDMBG which does earn them money once someone decides to sign up.

    I read the German article and agree with all who consider the Windscribe service questionable. I’ve been following their offers and wonder how they can stay in business with all their free offers and cheap lifetime subscriptions. Of course I could be wrong in my personal assessment.

    They seem to be located in Canada, and Canada belongs to the 5eyes. Inform yourself as best as possible before signing up with any of these VPN’s. It’s work but it’s also your privacy.

      Hi, me again

      I checked the German website again and, without mentioning any names, found at least one review about a certain VPN to be wrong. How do I know it ? I am using this VPN. So you better double check before totally relying on their expertise.
