What is Windscribe?
Windscribe is a set of tools that work together to block ad crawlers and web beacons, restore access to blocked content and help you protect your privacy online.
What are these tools?
There are 2 components: desktop VPN application and browser extension. You can use them on your own, but for greater protection, you must use both. It's silly not to do it, since it does not cost extra.
How much does Windscribe cost?
If you are a light user, you can use Windscribe for free. You get up to 10 GB of data per month and you can use all the tools we offer. If you need more data, for only $ 9 per month, you get unlimited use. You probably spend 10 times just in coffee!
What does the desktop application do?
The desktop application is a virtual private network (VPN) client. Create an encrypted tunnel from your computer to our servers, and all your activity is sent through the tunnel. This has 2 advantages:
1. The IP address of your Internet service provider (ISP) is masked, so any website you visit or any application you use (Skype, email providers, BitTorrent pairs, etc.) will see our IP address , which is shared by thousands of people. so its activity is mixed with other users.
2. Your Internet service provider can not see what you are doing online. This is much more important than you think.
What does the browser extension do?
The browser extension provides a VPN client "Lite", which does the same as the desktop client, but only in your browser. Any other application that you are using on your computer will use the IP address provided by your ISP.
In addition, it blocks thousands of advertisements and trackers that can track you through the websites you visit, and compromise your privacy, even if you are already using a VPN. It also blocks several "social widgets", such as Facebook's Like buttons, Twitter badges, etc., which are embedded in millions of websites and report all their activity to their respective companies. It also rotates your user agent (which identifies your browser), which further confuses your online activities in the eyes of whoever is watching.
