Get 20GB at Windscribe for lifetime on monthly basis (New & Existing Accounts) - Free

Posted 2nd Nov
20 GB free per month for lifetime on VPN Windscribe with coupon code EXPAND20.

You enter the code at registration, you would have to confirm the e-mail address to get the 20GB a month allowance. (I think).

Good thing is it works on existing accounts as well, as long as your allowance currently is less then 20GB

Hope it helps someone.

"This code cannot be used as it will reduce your bandwidth limit". :/
I have the 50GB too, but I’m hoping for a Black Friday deal to sign up for extra servers/windflix etc
Thanks!
Can you do p2p on this?
yup i got told this would lower my plan from 50 to 20 so you can not add on shame

No dont think so. It is for people with less then 20 GB.
Thanks. Worked for me as I was only on 10gb.
Thanks op - heat
Can someone explain to me;

Despite knowing computers quite well, I've never quite understood how the provider of the VPN can't see what you're doing / searching? Anyone got suggestions?

They can.
Always be suspicious of free VPN "deals".

If you're not paying for it, you are what's being sold.

Quite simple. Choose the server location from the drop down list, then switch on.

Yes they can and they are part of the (5 eyes) so they can be ordered to show your details to government authorities in USA, UK, etc... But it's unlikely that will happen, it dates back to an agreement after WW2 ......... Long story.. computer nerds will know what I'm talking about, anyway windscribe is still one of the legitimate secure VPNs to use so don't worry 😁
Thanks op you've just doubled my allowance.

But the difference with Windscribe is that they also offer a paid service. Whole point of the free deals is to encourage you to upgrade in future.

The provider could. There is no way of knowing for certain. The ones advertising no logs claim not to record this. Some independently audit to try and prove this. However, this doesn't bring any certainty.

VPNs still are useful though. Stops your ISP from seeing you torrent (or other questionable browsing) and unblocks foreign content. Many would take the risk of VPN company having that data over ISP who are duty bound to report everything to police if asked.

Gotta say, Windscribe does it for me, purchased life time for £34 last year and torrents, tv streaming and Jaws (she never shuts up) tablets and our phones are good to go. Especially good when we are in Edinburgh using the free WiFi and use Windscribe to mask our ip addy.
I claimed the offer but when I try to connect to a UK server I get a message saying it's not free in my location?
This code cannot be used as it will reduce your bandwidth limit

Heat added all the same - worth a punt!
I don't care about the privacy and have my own VPN setup on a Raspberry Pi for if I'm using dodgy free WiFi or am abroard. However I recently signed up to Windscribe's custom plan, $2 a month (so just over £1.50/month on a fee-free credit card) gives unlimited access to their US Windflix server designed purely to stream US Netflix. Another $1 to add Canada or Japan, the biggest Netflix libraries in the world. Installed app on Amazon Fire TV (available through Amazon store so no side-loading required) and was watching US Netflix in 5 mins. No issues at all so far so recommended.
TY op as i put above it did not work out for me but gave heat for the deal

Doesn't make it impossible for them to log regardless, but it does make it more trustworthy.
Im relying more and more on VPNs as a lot of torrent sites are being blocked by the government now. One press on the windscribe icon in chrome and i can get onto any site i want.
I know how it must feel like living in North Korea now

This is the free plan so you are limited to the free servers so you are trying to connect to a premium server. To connect to that server you need to upgrade to the paid service.

Thanks for the info, no good for watching UK TV then. I've already uninstalled, was going to see how it compared with Nord as my plan ends soon.

Nope. I have the paid for service and it won't allow you to watch BBC iplayer as it recognises it's a VPN. If its just streaming UK TV a proxy service may work instead.

All VPN's log, they have to do of how a VPN works - if they needed to troubleshoot why a connection was not working they'd send the log to a file/terminal to check. It's just many don't keep the logs, i.e throw them away. So they could tell you who is using the VPN now but not who was using it a short while ago. So if subpoenaed to provide logs they couldn't because they no longer have them.
I'm using windscribe to get (USA's top)cashback on a USA shop, usually everything tracks ok but my last 8 transactions only the first 3 tracked. I haven't changed anything.
I'm wondering if windscribe is the problem (maybe they are making hundreds of people share the same USA IP address idk)
Don't really know how vpns work, is there a VPN where I can get my own IP address. I'm using windscribe free ATM.

No need to use a VPN. I never did for US TCB.

This is what they are meant to do, but there is no absolute certainty that they do not keep the logs.
