"Build your own" plan is perfect if you just need a few servers to torrent from without your ISP throttling your internet, compared to expressvpn which charges an arm and a leg a month (around 13$). Windscribe charges me 2$ a month and I get the exact same performance. The generous free plan offers a healthy 10GB of data so you truly can try before you go.

After the last update it stopped working. After an uninstall, it says it can't install TAP 2 interface. Nothing works. Cannot install it at all.

You get 10GB free and the price is very reasonable when you pay for it. Good and simple UI and just works.

Best VPN so far. Nice gui, many locations, compatible with web browsers, as app for whole pc, android... No need for email during signup, but then we only get 2 GB. We can get 15 GB free data if we give email (we get total 10GB aka +8 GB) and if we tweet about them (15 GB total aka +5 GB). And best of all we get all premium locations for free by chatting with robot Garry! He gave me all locations for free by simply asking, and answering 1 or 2 questions, for 24 hours. This includes all countries, including fake ones and netflix compatible ones!!! I am amazed. Works flawlessly. Just can't work if we use another extension that deals with proxy in chrome, like foxyproxy, then it says it works but it does not, even when foxyproxy isn't used ever. Probably chrome limitation or bug, solution is to disable proxy extensions that may interfere.

A week ago, I started using Windscribe. I really like the browser extension. I upgraded to Pro and decided to use the desktop. That's when things went wrong. It would not connect. Then, I had no internet connection available. I tried turning off the firewall but that wasn't possible. I had to uninstall, use a tool to clean the registry, make sure all traces were gone, restart the computer, and double check upon start up. As an extension VPN, it's great! As a desktop VPN, I'm unsure. I'm new to using VPNs. So, I can't say for certain what the issue was. However, after doing some research, it seems other users have had the same problem.
