There are many reasons to celebrate 4/20. For
thousands millions of people, it's an opportunity to talk incessantly about how strong their weed is and how communism "actually works on paper." We don’t particularly care as long as it stays on paper. None of us at Windscribe are built to till fields; our hands are much too moisturized for such things.
Others celebrate more important anniversaries, like the founding of a VPN company. That's right, you beautiful babies, it's Windscribe's 7th birthday today! On this very day, seven years ago, brilliant minds came together with a single mission: Keep Mark Zuckerberg from finding out the size of our private parts when browsing the internet.
An idea was born, and it just so happened that the person who was writing down the details broke wind, and so Windscribe was born. Turns out life really does imitate art.
For seven years, we have worked our buttflaps off to create software to keep your personal information safe online. Seven beautiful, Red-Bull-filled years. A lot has changed since Windscribe's humble beginnings… we’ve grown from a team of 3 to almost 50 employees! We've gone from 0 users to over 50 million!
We no longer drink cheap coffee brewed from parking lot gravel and sewer water; we’ve graduated to using filtered water. We no longer subsist on a diet of government cheese and pushups; now we eat 7-11 sandwiches with the crusts cut off and our pinkies up. Most importantly, our employees are no longer paid in bags of Cheerios, like infants, but with bags of premium protein powder and chewable multivitamins, like adults. And cash, also.
Ahh, the good life. And it is all thanks to you, our users.
As much as this is an anniversary celebration for us, in truth, we are really celebrating you, and we wanted to thank all of you for using Windscribe. We know there are a lot of choices out there, and we deeply appreciate you picking us to keep you safe online. We are clearly the best-est, securest, funniest, and modest-est VPN company out there. After all, you can't spell Windscribe without "win".
With eternal thanks, and a generous sprinkle of love,
