Good and bad 2/5
The app repeatedly provides notifications to connect when already connected. It’s also quirky about connecting. It’ll cycle and die. The worst is that sometimes while connecting it provides a wide open and unprotected connection.
This VPN is great, it has improved a lot in the last couple of years 5/5
I bought the license two years + ago, it wasn’t perfect, other than netflix it was difficult to watch something else. I stopped using for months and Bam, I recently went to Mexico and wow very thing works from Netflix, Prime, Disney Plus, Hulu, Sling you name it. And the price was so affordable, I’m glad I got it.
Hello bro , when I was using this vpn on my Android phone it was working perfectly but now that I’m using it on my iPhone , when ever I created an Instagram account they easily block it I don’t know what’s happening please I really need your help with all due respect
Disable DNS 5/5
By ʕᴥ• ʔ
Love Windscribe and been this VPN service for three years now. I do have one suggestion for now is to optionally disable ROBERT and allow another DNS service (NextDNS) of my choosing instead of me typing the servers. The reason I’m asking is because of the new native config in iOS 14, connecting to VPN automatically ignores my choice. I know I can figure it with OpenVPN or WireGuard, but NextDNS would require to be called to update the linked IP every new connection then.

Minor bug in last update 4/5
By occasional downloader
I have the manual connection set to Wireguard, and since the last app update it’s been randomly changing to IKEv2.
I love that they added Wireguard—it’s noticeably faster and more stable—so the regression is a bit of a disappointment. Maybe the switch to iOS 14 has something to do with it.
Hope it’s fixed soon. Also looking forward to Wireguard getting added to the Mac app as promised, which seems to to be running behind schedule.
Despite the glitches, I’m very happy overall with Windscribe and do recommend. Their service works well and their policies and pricing are generous.
It’s awesome I wanted to spin the lucky wheel In gta 5 and it’s banned in my country the casino I downloaded it and now I can use the casino no problem
Bad customer service😬 2/5
By not madison
He/she is super super rude when replying to people who have problems like jeez ur a horrible business owner/worker whatever you are and I literally saw someone talking about this pointing it out and they replied with once again being rude like you’re not even listening or trying to improve. Do better! Iykyk
longtime favourite VPN! 5/5
By Jane Annaliese Rowe
Streams Netflix in HD with no buffering, torrents speedily, $2 a month for all US locations + adblock + unlimited data, won’t leak your IP, what else could one ask for?? Absolutely recommended.
Best VPN app on the market!!! 5/5
I just downloaded the Pro edition and I absolute love it. I am recommending y’all to everyone I know. I already put in on my mom’s iPhone. I told her don’t mess with it and just don’t mess with that app. Lol. A++
Been unable access my windscribe
I can’t login
Windscribe App 3/5
By Black and Gold Attack
I just downloaded this app and already I am having connection problems. It connects then it disconnects, then it reconnects again. It has a connect on demand but it should not disconnect then reconnects once it’s turned on. The app should stay on until its manually turn off it ever.
That problem needs to be fixed like now. I can only give three star for this app unless the situation is fixed on a permanent basis!
Couldn't take any more of the spammy emails, unsubscribed and my 50GB account turned into 2GB account. Darn, shoulda used a throwaway email. Google reCaptchas and captchas from a ton of major websites just to access them isn't necessarily the VPN's fault just an indicator of the VPN being popular. I used them since around 2017 with a two year subscription, and had to call it quits.
Also sup WindScribe developer! Could you write me a surly reply back too? ☺️
Poor service 1/5
By naughty lion king
I don't know if you are aware that, your PayPal payment never go through anymore, bitcoin charges to purchase vpn plan is so high. Credit card payment on your website rejects my card. Is Nigerians Banned from using your service?
works amazingly well 5/5
i’ts amazing i was able to watch other country content on netflix that i was not able to in my home country with this vpn thank you so much
Gave It A Try 3/5
By World Citizen #?
Tried this VPN and worked alright until it got to 300 mb left. The internet access is basically blocked for all intents and purposes. Can’t go anywhere. Turn the VPN off and I’m off and running again. I guess the intent is to encourage purchase of more ‘bandwidth’, but that’s just a guess. Don’t know exactly when it resets to start a new month. Deleted this app in favor of others that are working without a hitch. You might have better success than so give it a try. Nothing to lose.
UI changes (update: it’s getting worse) 1/5
App worked very well before the update, it wasn’t necessarily beautiful but it was greatly functional and easy to use, now it both looks really bad on iPhone 7 and isn’t as functional and easy to use as it was.
Update: It was bad, now it’s WORSE!!!
Update 2: Got the rudest possible response from the developer.
Very good VPN Easy to use and fast. Very strong 5/5
I love it but hate it because 1/5
It’s stupid the Data. like come why???
I love this 5/5
By camthe great567432
Seriously fast it is the same speed as my orbi WiFi, 85mbps.
Worst customer support 1/5
I have had nothing but problems with the customer support. You never get to talk to a human being. You have to deal with a bot or FAQs. So far I have nothing good to say about this item. I was scheduled to have a reset date on August 2, 2020. On August 3 it has not taken place. There’s no one who you can talk to to rectify the situation. When it does work it is fine but the customer service is really really bad.
Best VPN out there. 5/5
I’ve tried MANY different VPN’s over the years. But now I’ve been using Windscribe for over a year. It’s honestly the best one I can find, and the fastest. Plus, they’re super honest with you about everything and aren’t afraid to say things that most companies wouldn’t dare say. I must say the key selling point though is their tool ROBERT. ROBERT is amazing in so many ways. With premium (which I’m only paying $3 a month for btw!) ROBERT is giving me protection from scams, cryptominers, malware, etc. and best of all, the most overpowered ad blocker I’ve ever seen. I kid you not, Windscribe’s ad blocker is so powerful that it blocks 100% of all ads in mobile games and apps, as well as websites online. But mobile games? Holy cow. That’s amazing, considering mobile games these days give you an ad every 30 seconds. No more ads on anything and no bs prices. Oh and for you cautious parents out there, the ROBERT tool can even block all 18+ websites optionally, so you won’t ever have to worry about your kids seeing things they shouldn’t.
TL;DR I’ve been using Windscribe 24/7 for over a year, and I 100% recommend it to anyone.
I couldn’t use google or YouTube for days 3/5
By Midget Moses
Couldn’t use YouTube or google for several days. I didn’t realize I needed to actually click on this app when the lite versions data cap was met. Maybe a notification would have been nice. And yes, I had notifications on.
Needs to fix the widget and submenu in the homescreen 5/5
What’s the point of having a widget or the submenu when long pressing the app if when you turn on the vpn from there it automatically opens the app? This is poor design.
By Ban ema n dm em
Just wished that the developer responses were more formal and polite.
If an app is great but the developer is impolite then the app would do badly in terms of success, even if the app is great.
To those users who pay for Vpn, use Nord Vpn, it costs around the same and you get a better app in general. Windscribe was basically built for free users.
Best VPN Ever 5/5
I have been looking for a free vpn to use Netflix on as my country’s Netflix catalogue is quite weak and small. I have tried a number of free vpns and 90% of them don’t work on Netflix only some did (they were free trials)When I found out about this from an online article I was skeptical but I gave it a try and IT WORKED. (now I can finally watch the office) I also recommended this app to my friends. So I just want to say thank you for having a good free version
Can not connect 1/5
I want to use it but it almost can’t connect for 4-5 months ....
Will glitch your phone 1/5
It worked the first day then the second day it bugged out disconnecting and connecting internet had to uninstall it
Why do I have to pay!? 1/5
I really don’t know why we have to pay because the VPM or VMP doesn’t work anymore.LIKE why do u have to pay 89.99 a year?!So u ever made this app is greedy and selfish.and I’am I recommend not to use this app.
Happy then sad 4/5
By Skskssksksk abd i opp
I was happy to see all the people get this app I got it and tried United Kingdom but a few hour’s later it stopped working so I downloaded it again and then I was happy
Very Slow & most of the time not connecting 1/5
By Bassam Halabi
I bought lifetime subscription during black Friday, since then am regretting buying it.. because the connection is very slow even if am connected to the fastest one. Its even worth than the other free apps.. 👎 & now its not connecting anymore..
am even trying to reach their website.. its not working as well
This is the best of the more affordable VPN’s you can have. I tried quite a few of them, and while there are not too many with a low membership cost, this one has it all for only $2/month. It never let me down, there are a few countries/cities you can choose from with this subscription (you pay more if you want to unlock them all), or you can let it in automatic (default) for the app to choose the best IP for you.
But that’s not all, what I actually like most about this VPN is the ability of the app to recognize the WiFi’s your phone connects to, as you go about your day (your home, shopping, each place with their own private/public WiFi), and you can choose to connect your phone to VPN when it switches to a certain WiFi on to which you want security. I only have my home’s WiFi and my phone’s LTE unsecured, but for all other WiFi’s, the Windscribe app turns on the VPN automatically. None of the other VPN’s has this feature.
I only wish they had a MacBook version as well, so I can use this app on all my devices.
I’ll hold on tightly to Windscribe as long as all these features will be available and the subscription affordable 👍!

I just wrote a review to say thank you.
CAN'T be USED IN China. 1/5
By Wechat: Dashengmask
My dear developer, please show some love to your brother in China, he needs VPN there, otherwise he will die. Please try to save him by your good vpn.
This VPN is truly amazing. Easy to use, fast, and 10gb just for signing up for free is amazing. I never write reviews but I just had to for this one.
Great so far✨✨ 5/5
By horatio's hamlet
My obsession with having a vpn ironically occurred whilst I was on YouTube. An ad for a super expensive,competitor vpn came up. After doing some more research, I’m so glad I came across Windscribe. It’s cheap and easy to set up. Installed it on my phone first and then got the browser and chrome extensions. Gary (their support thingy) was also kind of helpful. I really appreciate the free 10GB but I knew that wasn’t gonna be enough (I wanna stream some stuffs during quarantine) so I caved and got the monthly plan (✨really appreciate that bc while yes, 4 dollars a month for a yearly plan is cheaper, I don’t want to be bound to a service for a year// so I really like that month to month payment).
I also appreciate the dumb jokes that pop up from time to time. Does it make me question who’s running this whole thing? Yes, but after some more extensive research I’ve reached the conclusion that the whole service is not run by some sketch 15 year old from inside their mom’s basement.
Not work in Iran 3/5
this app was very good and i bought vip account but its not work in Iran now :(
None of servers works in China. But other providers can! Maybe it’s because I am in a free plan?
LOVE THIS APP!! It’s Free to use and Protects you really well. thanks Windscribe!!🥺💞
Connecting issues 1/5
By fry tf PCI If
The app was good while it lasted, now It doesn’t want to connect anymore and it’s really frustrating please fix this bug
It works well just not enough GB to be able to hold off a while
Best vpn ever 5/5
By Hallo yes thats my name
Really fast even if u don’t buy the pro version.
Got the build your own plan and you can’t beat 4 bucks a month for this service. I love using it for Netflix and other streaming services. The only down is that the speeds could be a bit faster for torrenting. Other than that it’s great!
By so fffdd
When I first started using windscribe for 10G, it was working perfectly! But ever since I paid for a year subscription, it’s been completely terrible throughout. It doesn’t even connect anymore on my phone. And on my laptop, it has X’s on every single location before I even connect! WTH!! This vpn is complete trash & I’ll definitely stop using it when my year is up!
The VPN 4/5
Smart and perfect on iphones
