Image from store Windscribe - Free Proxy and Ad Blocker
Description from store Windscribe is a VPN desktop application and proxy browser extension that work together to block ads, trackers, restore access to blocked content and help you safeguard your privacy online. Free plan provides 10 GB of data per month (if you confirm your email address), and the Pro plan has unlimited data and access to servers in over 112 cities in 69 countries. Still not convinced? Perhaps this elegant list of features will convince you otherwise. Browse Privately ------------------------- Governments block content based on your location. Corporations track and sell your personal data. Add Windscribe to your browser and take back control of your privacy. Advanced Privacy Features ------------------------- Windscribe is not just a proxy extension. It's a suite of privacy tools which include: * Ad + Tracker Blocking - Ads and trackers follow you around, waste your bandwidth and compromise your privacy. Windscribe will block all this crap. Malware Blocking - Some sites distribute malware. We'll prevent you from ever ending up on those sites. * Social Blocking - Social networks are the biggest privacy invaders out there. Block their trackers. * Whitelisting - Our block lists are not one size fits all. Customize your experience. * Location API Spoofing - Sites can request your GPS location why bypasses most proxies and VPNs. Not with Windscribe. * WebRTC Blocking - Prevents WebRTC leaks that plague most proxy extensions and VPNs. * Timezone Spoofing - Sites can detect that your IP doesn't match your browser's time zone. This feature solves this problem. * Notification Blocking - Tired for sites asking you to send notifications? We are too. Enable this feature to never see those things again. * User Agent Spoofing - Helps combat browser fingerprinting * Cookie Monitoring - Leave nothing behind. This feature deletes 1st or 3rd party cookies when you close the tab. * Language Spoofing - This feature will spoof your browser's language settings to match the proxy location of your choice. Unlock content -------------------------- Windscribe VPN masks your IP address. This gives you unrestricted and private access to entertainment, news sites, and blocked content in over 62 different countries. No identifying logs ------------------------- Your privacy is a right. We don’t track you. We don't sell your data to marketers, or even share it with anyone. We don’t keep logs that can deanonymize you. Go beyond basic protection ------------------------- For comprehensive privacy protection even outside of the browser, use our desktop VPN applications (they’re also free). Available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Did we mention mobile? Yeah, there's mobile apps too. We got your back ------------------------- Having issues with Windscribe VPN or want to suggest something?

  • (2022-09-24) Clare: Love it! I pinned it on my Chrome toolbar so that I can easily toggle on and off as needed and avoid using up the allotted monthly gigs all at one time.
  • (2022-09-23) Стихи Ya: No se conecta, no funciona bien. Voy a borrar, lo siento....

  • (2022-09-20) mohsin ahmed: Exceptional services throughout since my discovery back in 2019. Yeah it did had some connection glitches but man it recovered in no time and has proven to be very helpful. The pricing is top notch and allows you to enjoy a good chunk for free as well. Definitely recommended.
  • (2022-09-19) Константин Железов: Полностью доволен. Отличный VPN, хорошая скорость, много дополнительных фич, даже бесплатная версия вполне устраивает.
  • (2022-09-18) Eduard Tikhenko: There is no selective mode when VPN is off by default.
  • (2022-09-16) C. Kaye: Over the last 2 years or more, Windscribe worked great, but no longer connects reliably for me. Intermittent and long delays to connect. I've been in touch with "support" and they have simply told me to do everything that I had already tried over a period of nearly two weeks. They finally gave up and told me that I have an old operating system. I tried the newer version and it was even worse. I have now switched to another, more reliable software that had better reviews and ratings and it works like Windscribe used to work. Incidentally, I am a paid subscriber and have been.
  • (2022-09-13) Terry: Absolutely, positivity, love Windscribe! Affordable and rock-solid service.
  • (2022-09-12) bob peniscum: Used to use it last year. but now the vpn website doesnt work so i can't set up an free account

  • (2022-09-07) Nikolay “hv” Lysenko: it does not connect from Russia at all
  • (2022-09-06) Tobster: Works but slows down my internet speed, sometimes a lot.
  • (2022-09-06) Султан: Пока не могу включить потому что когда нажимаю на локацию расширение закрывается.Невозможно выбрать сервер!
  • (2022-09-05) Sébastien L: grosse daube
  • (2022-09-05) Ekaterina Grebner: Это мошенники!!!! Ни в коем случае не оплачивайте подписку!!!! Ее потом отменить никак невозможно!!!! В личном кабинете нет кнопки отмены подписки. Они запоминают номер карты и дальше списывают деньги каждый месяц!!! Служба поддержки тупо молчит!!!! Не верьте хорошим отзывам!!!! Это развод!!!
  • (2022-09-04) Melvin Nava (MEL): Windscribe is top notch VPN utility for web browsers. Highly recommended. I'm currently using the free extension for Chrome that includes 10GB of monthly VPN traffic and access to a wide range of nodes worldwide, but at some point in the future I see myself upgrading. The extension works also on Opera and other Chromium/Firefox based browsers. There's also a Desktop program available that allows the whole system (and not just the browser) to use the VPN.
  • (2022-09-03) Jon Haack: I love that Windscribe is always innovating and improving the service, and has easy tools to use it on the major computer and mobile platforms. This extension works well and is part of my go-to setup for any web browser I use
  • (2022-09-02) Ярослав Зыков: Не работает в Хром. Отдельное приложение не нужно. Жаль что расширение умерло.
  • (2022-08-31) CaptainToad: It's pretty good. But the default privacy setting of this extension makes it unable to pass hCaptcha and leads to an infinite loop. Hope dev can fix it soon.
  • (2022-08-31) JONAS CHRISTIAN ABUAN: It is good but it is sometimes slow pls fix this
  • (2022-08-30) олег хлутков: Аккаунт заблокирован в целях вашей безопасности, пожалуйста, проверьте почту, а на почту не чего не приходит ! Поддержка тоже молчит !
  • (2022-08-30) Enoch Ayomiposi: its okay i guess
  • (2022-08-29) Andrew Lincoln: Unfortunately this extension doesn't work from Russia. Desktop version of the VPN works flawlessly! Please fix this extension for Chrome, please, because I use it for my work. Thank you!
  • (2022-08-28) Skynet Network: It says i can use it on ALL of my devices.....It's a LIE....after you add a few devices, it locks your account and disconnects ALL devices!!!!! Then you get a change password.....you do that and login into 3 devices and LOCKED AGAIN.....WASTE of time and effort...left messages got no replys. STAY CLEAR OF WINDSCRIBE IF YOU HAVE A LOAD OF DEVICES.......You dont get this issue with Surfshrk so try there if you have a lot of devices!
  • (2022-08-24) Hihiman1212: if its free its for me
  • (2022-08-24) oner bendejo: works great but recently it has become necessary to create an account/login to use the vpn which is inconvenient for someone who doesn't use it very often previously the disadvantage(which was fair) for not making an account was that you only get 1gb however personally that was enough for my usage. I hope the option of using the extension without creating an account is returned as soon as possible!
  • (2022-08-23) Heder Pérez: excelente aplicacion
  • (2022-08-21) Василий Третьяков: отличное приложение ну только если есть подписка поставил 4 так как иногда есть проблемы с расширением для Chrome удобно основной комп не под VPN, а в браузере работа идет через VPN
  • (2022-08-21) Jam Gram: Two thumbs...
  • (2022-08-20) dr Far: its very good, high speed and secure,
  • (2022-08-20) Babak Amini: This is a great VPN and extension, except there are no blacklists. I need to have the extension running all the time, but traffic goes through the VPN only for the blacklisted websites. I will return with a 5-star whenever you add this feature.
  • (2022-08-20) Kurt from NIRVANA: works great!
  • (2022-08-20) Maksim Lenskii: In Russia, since August, only the standalone application has been working so far, the extension does not work in Google Chrome. it's a pity.
  • (2022-08-17) Phil Donaldson: The free version does not allow any location from NZ or AUS. I have no problem with requiring a paid upgrade for more locations, but at least let us use 1 location from each country. Other proxy apps allow this so I'm switching.
  • (2022-08-16) tom: It's really good. Lots of useful features but just works out of the box
  • (2022-08-16) Obito Uchiha: greaaat

  • (2017-10-04, v:2.2.1) Tim: compatibility w/other extensions or just keeping up with the jones's?
    hey guys youve given me multiple thorough one on one attention every time I needed anything so I wanted to ask you if you know of any definitely toxic combos that your app does not play well with? i also have had your desktop app and chrome add-on but as per our first talk I just let the pc desktop program do the work and then when ublock+adblock came out i added that to delete the 3 i had before on top of yours. ive never had perfect popup-free no-privacy alarms going off but lately every single far flung aspectof my online time has been suffering regularly and randomly alike and i have some good luck incognito no extensions some better normal, but slowdowns come amd go, repeatable but absurd glitches plague and keep me always fighting to the point i acually atarted using my cable tv, netflix, and prime access. any suggestions i just stream free videos and do the usual self-secretarial things online. much obliged though as always and for everyone else Im asking these kind folks because theyre always on top of the situation of the day sharpening the cuttig edge of the last frontier for us couch lovers and they still find time to drop everything to help a rusty old novice keep up with the pack. loyal happy user, tim.
  • (2017-10-04, v:2.2.1) Gordon Bommer: no more chrome ws
    strange, when i click on the windscribe button in chrome to activate the in-browser extension only a blank window opens. Windscribe works fine if I activate it in general from its own app.
