Why Use Windscribe VPN for Windows?

We Offer Robust Split Tunneling

Eliminate the chance of any kind of leak.

There are cases when you don't wish to tunnel all your traffic through a VPN. Windscribe offers 2 split tunneling types and 2 modes for each one.


Allows you to select specific apps that go over the VPN tunnel, or alternatively you can exclude specific apps from the tunnel.

Network Level

Allows you to select IP addresses, domains, and whole IP networks to be tunneled over the VPN, or excluded from the tunnel.

Custom Config Support

Import any VPN config into Windscribe.

You may have your own VPN servers that you operate yourself, or ones that are provided by your workplace or even a different VPN provider. You can import any OpenVPN or WireGuard VPN config into Windscribe, and use it as if it's a Windscribe location.

You still get all the benefits and features of Windscribe. You don't even have to have a Windscribe account! Simply choose "Config only" mode from the splash screen, and use Windscribe as a VPN utility.

Proxy Gateway

Proxy Server for any Device.

Creates a secure HTTP or SOCKS5 proxy server on your computer. Any device on your network can use this proxy server to make requests over the tunnel. Handy for devices that don't support VPNs.

Other Awesome Features

  • Automatic Updating
    • Self-updating app will make sure you always have the latest and greatest.
  • Custom DNS Support
    • Optionally use any 3rd party DNS server instead of R.O.B.E.R.T.
  • Meme Friendly

Why Trust Windscribe VPN?

  • Insanely Strict no-log policy. Seriously, we don’t even want to know your name. Read more here.
  • Freemium, not free. We don’t trust free VPNs and neither should you. That’s why we use a freemium business model, so we can still offer low-budget users basic service without having to rely on selling data for monetization. 
  • Globetrot with the click of a mouse. Choose your preferred server destination amongst 69 countries (nice) and 134 cities across the world.


What Is the Best Free VPN for Windows?

Well, obviously we think that it’s Windscribe but there are several things you should consider. For starters, as a general rule, a paid VPN service will always be better than a free one. Many free VPNs offer a free service, but fund it by selling user data. Windscribe on the other hand, is Freemium, meaning we can offer a free-to-use product with limited availability, whose cost is offset by our paying users (who get full server access and unlimited bandwidth.)

Is a VPN Really Necessary for Windows?

Microsoft says its operating system is secure, but we don't even know what kind of telemetry they collect. It’s safe to say that they’re likely spying more than they should be. Part of a proactive online safety strategy is using a VPN like Windscribe on your devices. 

While connected to a VPN, you can rest easy knowing that you can surf the internet in private, secure your data, disrupt third-party tracking, and bypass geo-blocking on websites. VPNs also block trackers and invasive advertising, allowing you to enjoy a cleaner digital space.

Doesn’t Microsoft Already Have a Built-in VPN?

Literally, any operating system you can imagine has VPN functionalities. What’s missing is a VPN server to connect to, aka the most important of the whole VPN process: safely connecting to the outside world. Your OS built-in VPN is also much less user-friendly and its use case probably doesn’t apply to you.

Can I Use More than One Device at a Time with Windscribe?

Heck yeah, you can. We have an unlimited device policy (within reason) because we don’t like limiting your fun. Hook up your Raspberry Pi, smart TV, iPhone, iPad, and grandma’s computer all under the same account, because you deserve it. 

What do we mean by within reason, you may wonder? Well, it’s pretty simple. If you’re planning on setting up your Scraping Bot network on Windscribe servers, think again. The rest of you are good though. 

Does Windscribe Work for Older Windows Devices?

You bet it does! If you’re on Windows 10 or 11 then you can grab the latest version of the Windscribe app here. For anyone still using Microsoft XP or 7, all you need to do is click on the legacy version link immediately below the Windows download button.
