Windscribe Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
7.7
/10

Although Windscribe encrypts user data in transit and at rest, it lacks advanced authentication methods along with regular software updates. However, the VPN’s privacy policy is solid, as it doesn’t keep records of the websites that users visit or the IP addresses of their devices.
