Ratings and Reviews
This app/software is awesome! It's so easy to use - you just turn it on and pick a server from around the world and you're connected and secure. I've used it on several devices - iPhone, macs and PC's - and have never had any issues. I've done as many security checks as I can think of for IP leaks, DNA leaks, etc., and everything has passed wonderfully. The free version was great to try out before buying but I quickly paid for the full version. More than happy to support this company. The support has always responded very quickly and has has always been helpful, even with my simple newbie questions. This company is new to the VPN market but they know what they're doing and have a solid product. The design of the app is beautiful and simple. The browser plugins are awesome and so simple to install and use. This app is a no-brainer! I've been telling everyone about it. I Love it.
Works Well... for a while
I’m in China, using a VPN on my iPad to get to Google products (blocked by the gov’t). At first Windscribe worked, although connecting often required a lot of fiddling, e.g. turning it on and off, turning VPN on and off in settings, etc.
Then something happened, possibly an update, and it forgot my login and PW. I looked in Passwords, but nothing listed there. Tried logging in with my login/password as I’d written it down, but either the login failed or I got an API Connectivity Error (-1001). Tried a hard reboot, then removed & reinstalled, but it still doesn’t work.
I’d try a password reset, but use Gmail, so can’t use it to get a reset message. Now it is possible I wrote down the password incorrectly, but I also tried an old free account, and it wouldn’t login either. So try the free version and see if you can live with the flakiness before paying.
Good on paper, issues in real use
It works in general, has a decent set of servers around the world and pricing is reasonable, so the VPN service is fine, but the apps (both iOS and mac) are lame. The main issue is how it wants to reconnect automatically. It’s a good feature to have, but it works poorly, often preventing a device to connect to a network, if some verification or action to be done and that’s common in public wi-fi places, right when you need VPN.
Often the entire device becomes unresponsive when the app is retrieving list of servers, you can’t even turn the connection off at this point.
The other big issue is lack of proper favorites, it causes many aggravations, and complicates how iOS can use VPN.
And there are many small annoyances, that are not critical, but since there are so many of them it makes the app way less attractive.
