Windscribe, one of the VPNs for when you're surfing the web on a public Wi-Fi network, brings more simplicity to it than ever before. With a VPN, you have to choose carefully because the wrong one can have a major impact on your speed, but Windscribe has always included fast speeds with its surfing. It does not slow you down. Another thing that's amazing about it is how you can watch Netflix while using it. For those who don't know, Netflix has applied a VPN block, but this is one of the VPNs you can use to bypass the block.

The Pro Plan: Should You Get It?

When we look at everything offered, one of the possibilities is to get in with the Pro Plan. This helps you out because you can check through a larger collection of networks to decide on the best. You can also look at the servers that will maintain the strongest connection for you. Obviously, the further away from the connection you are, the slower it will be. Nevertheless, Windscribe never strays too far from offering you excellent services.

Can Be a Little Slow Depending on the Location

One user commented on how it was a little slow for where he was living, but he liked to use it because of how well it functioned otherwise. At times, he said it could be difficult to get a connection over 5 Mbps, but we also have to consider what the purpose is for using the internet. For some things, it might not be the best like if you're trying to download something off the internet. What's cool about this system is how it changes the IP address, and you can connect to Windscribe quickly without a problem.

Continues to Grow and Improve

With some VPNs, they're dead in the water once they launch. They no longer improve the services and eventually, they fall out of use. Windscribe differs because it continues to improve with time. For example, the privacy features on Windscribe have an ad-blocker and a kill-switch. You also have anti-social features to keep your confidential data out of the hands of hackers. You can also use the free version if you'd like, even though you will have access to fewer features.

What's great about Windscribe is how they relentlessly put their best foot forward with their services. What they don't have is a big list of countries that you can choose from, but you do have other choices on the market if that's what you're looking for. Windscribe offers excellent value for the price, and maybe eventually, they will bring in more proxy choices like what you might receive with IPVanish or NordVPN.

Pros

  • Surf on Netflix even though the service doesn't want people to use VPNs.
  • The software continues to improve its services in a big way.

Cons

  • Not as many proxy choices as what you have with competitors.
