Windscribe features extremely minimalist clients for all platforms which make getting started a breeze. Do you want to spend time configuring a dozen settings, or do you want to install an application that just works well out of the box? Rhetorical question.
Windscribe has one of the most diverse networks out there. All our servers are physically in the countries that they are advertised to be in, unlike some competitors who have most of their servers in US and Europe, and simply fake the location with false IP WHOIS data to make it appear that it’s elsewhere. Currently Windscribe offers servers in the following countries.
In our desktop applications we use AES-256 cipher with SHA512 auth and a 4096-bit RSA key. We also support perfect forward secrecy.
In our browser extensions we use TLS 1.2, ECDHE_RSA with P-256 key exchange and AES_128_GCM cipher.
Windscribe allows you to generate configuration files and profiles for the following protocols:
If you don’t wish to use our applications, or your device does not support any of our applications you can manually configure the connection on your device.
Enjoy US Netflix no matter where you are. Simply connect to the WINDFLIX location in the browser extensions and gain access to the expanded Netflix library. Mobile and Desktop App support is coming soon.
Desktop App Features
Windscribe Firewall is built into our Windows and Mac applications. It blocks all connectivity outside of the tunnel to ensure there is zero chance of any kind of leak, including but not limited to DNS leaks, IPv6 leaks, WebRTC leaks, etc.
Since many networks have heavy restrictions on which ports you can use, Windscribe does not restrict you to a single protocol or port, in order to give you the best chance of connecting. We allow you to connect via the most common ports many of which cannot be blocked since using the Internet would become impossible. All details here
Secure Hotspot is a Windows only feature that allows you to create a secure Wifi hotspot right on your computer (if you have a compatible wireless adapter). While Connected to Windscribe, you can allow others to connect to this hotspot and take advantage of your secured connection, without having them install Windscribe on their device.
Proxy Gateway allows you to create a secure HTTP or SOCKS5 proxy server right on your Windows or Mac computer, which is only available on your LAN. Other devices on your network that do not support VPN protocols can connect to your machine and use the secure connection provided by Windscribe.
Browser Extension Features
Windscribe browser extension will automatically connect to the best location in order to maximize your speeds. If you stumble upon a geo-blocked service, it will automatically change the connected location (in the background) to the one that’s required to unblock the desired service.
This is actually not a mental disorder. Windscribe will rotate your user agent between the most common ones out there, to reduce the chance of fingerprinting.
Windscribe browser extension will make your browsing experience not only more enjoyable, but also more private. This feature consists of 3 separate components:
- Ad Blocking – Removes ads from all websites
- Tracker Blocking – Blocks trackers that could compromise your privacy
- Social Network Blocking – Blocks Facebook “Like” buttons, Twitter “Tweet” buttons, Google+ and LinkedIn widgets all of which collect your browsing history.
Windscribe browser extensions will fake the configured timezone on your computer to match that of the location you’re connected to.
This has nothing to do with Oscar, the Sesame Street character. Windscribe browser extension will keep track of cookies that are set in each tab. Depending on how you have it configured, the extension will delete all 3rd party or 1st party cookies when you close the tab.
Double Hop allows you to route your requests through ANY 2 locations on the Windscribe network. This is achieved by connecting to 1 location in our desktop applications, and a different location in the browser extension. Websites that you visit will see the IP of the server you’re connected to in the browser extension.
Secure.link is a separate service operated by Windscribe. It works in a similar fashion to a URL shortening service, where you create a unique URL that points to any webpage of your choice. We will scan the destination page for ad beacons and 3rd party trackers that may compromise the privacy of the person who accesses the page. We will give a “Privacy Score”, which grades (from A to F, just like in school) the destination page in terms of how invasive it is with tracking practices.
