Windscribe is a VPN client for Windows that allows users to browse the internet securely and privately.  It sets it up to make it look like you're coming from a different area, so you can access blocked content.  This is especially important in countries where important content is blocked due to overzealous governments. 

  • Provides privacy for anonymous browsing
  • With the current privacy issues that are all over the news, the need for privacy is greater than ever.  While your data may not always be targeted, ISPs have been known to sell user information.  It's one of those things where you become the product, but Windscribe protects you from that. 
  • Protection from Hackers
  • Allows you to securely connect to public Wi-Fi networks
  • Masks your information online which allows you to securely login to websites without the risk of somebody stealing your login info
  • Very quick for a VPN

While I live in a country that doesn't blanket block content, it is still important to protect my privacy online.  When I am browsing the internet, even though I don't do anything even remotely illegal, I prefer to have all my information safe from prying eyes. Windscribe provides me that privacy and also protects me against malicious individuals. The government here isn't a cause for much worry when it comes to stealing my information, but there are a lot of people out there who will take anything they can get to try to make some money.  Windscribe also provides protection against these individuals and keeps me safe on public wifi networks.  Because it secures my traffic, I can now access my banking and investment information whenever I'm at a hotel, without being worried that someone is going to intercept my info.  One of the best aspects of Windscribe is speed. Most VPNs and secure browsers, such as TOR, are very slow.  This makes using them more of a chore than anything because the guys/girls at Windscribe constantly working on optimizing the product, it has so far been the fastest option available.
