You don't get it. Stack Social is a deal marketplace. WindScribe is quite reputable, very much comparable to the speeds of NordVPN which I've used before. Actually, this is much faster to be fair and I'm using it for the past 2 weeks.
you need to change your description to say 5years and not lifetime; lifetime is $69
If only their IP's were not already blocked from certain sites.

Yeah, oops.
Within the five eyes (Canada) and useless for getting around geo restrictions (Netflix). Cheap for a reason.
I currently have a year of WindScribe via Humble Bundle and have been very unimpressed with it. Speeds are garbage compared to NordVPN, which is what I was using before, and server choice is fairly limited. Of course, it's also much cheaper and is fine basic web browsing.
£5 a year VPN. If you value your privacy pay that 5 year price for 1 year.
I always recommend NordVPN.

Not sure but I've been using it and it works fine, speeds are good.
And frankly for $24 you can't go wrong.
Paid less than this for life just 2 months back, this really isn't a deal. Just a heads up you can watch American Netflix with windscribe.
Lifetime sub is £29.42 with code VPNSD40

​NordVPNs speed is not that great though tbh. Cancelled my subscription with them because it was too slow.
Hide.me is the fastest I've found but it's also quite expensive.
Got the year with Humble and its slow as anything.
I only use Windscribe on my browser tbh (60GB) and its pretty slow at times. I dont believe there is any way to white/blacklist sites either and watching carefully, when the VPN is turned off all data gets pushed through the extension anyway (more of a Chromium/Iron thing really).

I still believe having one VPN isn't enough. I have Windscribe for 'general' browsing in a portable Iron browser, HTPC uses Nord for IPTV and Ivacy on a GiNET mini router as a VPN'd wireless hotspot (another one in the car). Any Kodi installs around the house use the Ivacy addon just to fill the slots on the account (not for the crappy addons, I dont use, those only local media).

I have another PC that does other stuff that I use with a VPN from a provider that does this stuff and use spit-tunneling on that one.

On my phones I use any free one I can find, dont do a lot on my phone tbh.

If you wanted to get really serious, you would need to look at building a dedicated hardware VPN. The last time I looked you were looking at at least an i7 to get 200mb through the VPN which would then cover the entire network rather then each client using a separate install of one.

Its on my list of things to do but a pretty pricing and time consuming project!
I’ve never really had an issue with Windscribe - it does do the occasional odd thing (as someone else noticed with the Chrome extension it still filters things even if turned off) but it was so much better than Cyberghost, I get good speeds and it’s reliable. I believe all VPNs have good and bad press. I know it’s hosted in a Five Eyes nation but honestly there comes a point where you have to balance up privacy with realism and if you’re that concerned, maybe the internet just isn’t for you - it just seems to be tin hat stuff sometimes.

I will try another VPN when my year is over but I wouldn’t hesitate to use Windscribe again from my own experience

Its getting the balance right between the two. The whole 'Im innocent so dont need to hide' argument is irrelevant these days.

If you do a little bit of naughty downloading here and there its unlikely that they will flit an eyelid (its akin to the whole recording radio to tape, a TV to VHS and DVR etc)

But when you think that you IP is logged and can be linked to every site you've ever visited and if they wanted to could map a timeline of what you are doing and when you are doing it to be presented to the Court in a nice colorful diagram with little defense from you its time to prick those ears up.

Im far from tin hat level but have worked with IT for many years (as many here do also) to know that a little privacy goes a long way...
I suppose it depends on what you need a VPN for, personally I don't see a point in using a VPN based in a 5E territory that logs data usage, connections etc. Defeats the object in most cases I'd have thought?
tried VPNSD40 but with paypal payment it went back to $69 paying on the site it stayed @ $41.40 (under £30)


Its 20 years so uinder £1.50 per year if they are around that long!
I got this deal a year ago. Windscribe are very good indeed. Not absolutely perfect 100% of the time, but I don't know a VPN that has zero downtime. You just need to try a different server.

I use it on my phone, Tablet, laptop and Android box. It works very well. So I recommend it.

Take a look at thatoneprivacysite, should tell you all you need to know about the providers.
Then its about choosing whats right for you.

In terms of hardware, kit out what you can afford 'PC' wise (i5, i7, 16GBG RAM etc) then google best VPN NIC cards to stick in, then finally stick look at pfsense

You can build a smaller cheaper one on a Pi or a spare router but you will be sacrificing speed as the hardware cannot keep up with the de/encryption of the VPN.
