What is privacy with Windscribe?

As far as private surfing with Windscribe is concerned, the provider follows no-logging policy. Still, they write that they store some information about you in a temporary location (it is deleted after the session is over). See more details on the screen below or in their Privacy Policy article:

What is privacy with Windscribe?

Taking into consideration, the information taken from their website, you can have confidential or private Internet use.

What protocols are applied by Windscribe?

Windscribe supports such protocols as UDP, TCP, Stealth, SOCKS5, OpenVPN and IKEv2, but not all of them are available for the free plan if you want to apply them outside Windscribe apps. If you require OpenVPN, IKEv2 or SOCKS5 to configure VPN connections manually, you will have to upgrade your plan and only then to configure in a manual way.

It is worth noting that they do not apply this standard weak protocol PPTP or LT2P, that’s a big plus.

How does Windscribe encrypt your data?

For all their apps Windscribe provider suggests AES-256 encryption. What is more, an excellent forward secrecy is supported.

If you are going to use Windscribe in its browser extensions, TLS 1.2, ECDHE_RSA with P-256-bit and AES_128-bit encryption key will be applied.

What platforms does Windscribe work with?

Free Windscribe apps work on diverse operating systems and platforms: Windows, Mac, iPhone, Linux and browsers (Chrome and Firefox). Unfortunately, they have no app for Android, which makes us upset. Still, one can take advantage of it on the platforms mentioned above.

All of them are provided on the site and there is no problem to download it on your gadget.

Besides, there are no limitations about the number of devices on which you are allowed to use free Windscribe.
