LastPass, manages passwords for multiple websites, compatible with multiple browsers.

WindScribe VPN, allows you to connect to specific sites via certian locations to get around region blocking. Also a PC client.
Check out WindScribe and ProtonVPN, they shouldn't save logs
EDIT: These are just 2 VPNs I use spontaneously. Can't complain tho, it gets the job done for me. Both also offer a free plan, so you can test them by yourself
Do not use a free VPN.
I looked at WindScribe's website and they are trying to conceal their identity. Ask yourself why would they do that.
There are many legitimate, low cost VPNs you can choose from.
I run my own VPN for my family and friends. It's cheap and I can be sure nothing is logged.
This is the software I use:
Voting for evictions costs actual money (yes, seriously) so that's not really possible.
Online voting is possible with a UK VPN to make it look like you're located in the UK - WindScribe has a free version with 50 GB of usage.
Problems following the update, just sit tight, or if you want to play now, here's a work around.
1. Go to google and download WindScribe. Get the one for your computer or OS.
2. Download and run it
3. It will port you to the website again to make an account. This takes almost no time
4. Now that you are signed in and running, choose a westcoast server (if in USA) specifically Los Angeles Dogg
5. Run the game and you will be in. Then turn the vpn off. You will be good to go. This literally takes 5 minutes.
I don't think that is a waste. I've tried both ProtonVPN and bought WindScribe. I think so many mega users are using these services that switching VPN endpoints doesn't always help as someone else has already leached a bunch.
Also, I think the megalinks PC client with start a download OVER if you switch IPs on it instead of completing the current download.
>I'm really longing to have a lifetime subscription but it's so expensive in Iran where we need a nice VPN like Windscribe the most. It's really the best among other. I install it's free version on all me relatives' phones. Hope to be the winner this month :D
You gave a referral link to StackSocial, right after complaining that WindScribe lifetime subscriptions cost too much (less than $60).
You are quite obviously trying to get enough referrals to cover a purchase of the lifetime VPN service. I suspect it's the only reason you created this account.
Are you using BlueStacks to play? You should try WindScribe vpn and set to USA. I don't know if your account was associated with your country. That may be a whole other issue. You may have to start over if this is the case. Or, try emailing their support and let them know you don't live in belgium anymore lol... whatever works, right? just keep that VPN set outside your country if you take that route!
I think it is worth considering，But the ShadowsocksR's author Breakwa11 has given up on Shadowsocks's author Clowwindy is threatened by the Chinese government and also give up the I think WindScribe's team is unlikely to invest in technology that no one maintains
I keep getting this error.
Remote Access error 703 - The connection needs information from you, but the application does not allow user interaction.
Any way to resolve that?
Edit - Redid GUI Settings on WindScribe and got it working. Followed the directions on their website.
You you can. VPN and only for starting up Spotify. After that VPN can be closed and Spotify works great without it until you close app. I use Windscribe just to start Spotify.
Po naški: može se koristiti uz VPN, a on treba samo da počne rad aplikacije i početak pjesme. Nakon što krene pjesma gasim VPN (WindScribe) i dalje radi Spotify bez VPN dok ga ne ugasim nakon par sati slušanja.
Be wary of those free VPNs. The way those work is that you get access to the IP addresses of the other users using that VPN and they get access to your IP address. Some not so nice people could be on your IP address doing something worse than streaming a motorsport event.
This isn't the case on paid for VPN services. I personally use WindScribe because they had a lifetime membership a year or two back for around $50 I believe.
A temporary workaround is to use a VPN. There are a few free VPNs you can use with enough bandwidth to patch the client (e.g. WindScribe), you'll typically need 100MB~500MB per update, so far this week I've downloaded around 700MB in total.
Or patch the launcher during off-peak hours (e.g. in the morning).

Just putting it out there, WindScribe has a server set up for US Netflix and one set up for UK Netflix so they might be your best bet. It’s the only one I know with designation for what you’re looking for. I live in neither country and have used both, successfully.
Eta and I think that is how it works. I want US Netflix because the content is better/there’s more of it.
Thanks! I've tried TunnelBear before but the low free quota makes it a bad choice for streaming matches. I can't do the 'disable once stream loaded' trick as livestream will disconnect at random points (even force setting the quality to something other than auto before disabling).
WindScribe looks promising. Will give that a shot. If that fails, I'll just pay for a VPN while in the footy season.
I'm not sure of "free" versions. There is WindScribe and TunnelBear which offer a free variant of their paid versions. They both have limits on their free versions, WindScribe is 10GB a month and and TunnelBear is 500MB. I don't know how much data LiveStream would consume.
I was on PIA for a year then switched to WindScribe. They are well rated on thatoneprivacyguys site, I paid $40 for a lifetime subscription through a stacksocial promotion, speeds are fantastic, and there are openvpn settings you could use on an androidtv/android box.
can't recommend highly enough!
As a fan of freemium services, I've been eyeing Windscribe for a while. The difference is that with other freemiums, the collected data is sold to advertisers. Since you aren't collecting data I can't fathom how you are staying afloat. You mentioned that the few paid users are covering the cost of the free users, but between the massive data usage promos and selling lifetime accounts for a flat $80 (promo) I don't see how that's possible to maintain. As you grow in popularity, free users and server costs are going to eventually drown the service right?
RingPlus is a great recent example of Freemium failing, and I'm not trying to be cynical here, but I am legitimately concerned about whether or not you can keep this going in a sustainable fashion. Can you provide any insight as to how financially stable WindScribe is in terms of longevity, or how it can stay operational?
I am the same with . I just use a VPN that lets me change my location. SlickDeals had a link to an offer from WindScribe for free with a 5 or 10GB cap for free accounts. Never thought I'd need it until wouldn't let me watch the Cubs. So I just use the Firefox extension for WindScribe and change my location and watch.
Yes, mega checks your IP. Using a VPN can solve that. VCDupper posted a video on WindScribe VPN service free account.
T'es chanceux je suis Québecois et ce documentaire y'a 2 ans à changé complétement ma vision du Capitalisme, j'étais pro-capitaliste et suis maintenant ce qu'on pourrait qualifier de "social-démocrate" sans aucune affiliation à un parti.
Procure toi un VPN gratuit ou avec un proxy (Comme WindScribe) pour le Canada et va ici: pour le premier épisode et tape "CAPITALISME" dans la barre de recherche de et tu vas voir les 6 épisodes et 2 autres en bonus. ;-)
I'm actually a happy WindScribe customer and get great speeds, even when torrenting.
They have plenty of servers and it's easy to switch. WHat I've found is that if I try to use servers in a timezone where it's late at night/early in the morning (like 3-4am in the server's time zone) then I get great speeds.
From my experience, the basic answer is: yes, you will be able to connect from within China... technically. If all you need to do is send emails and view mostly text-based websites, WindScribe will do that, no problem. You will be able to get around the Great Firewall using Windscribe on a desktop computer (still no Stealth support on Android, not sure about iPhone).
Longer answer: bandwidth will come through at a trickle, which I suspect is due to WindScribe not having servers that have strong peering with China. I'd love to be proven wrong. Does anyone else living in China have a positive experience to share? Servers to recommend?
Here's a really long answer with more detail:
VPN! That's what finally fixed this for me. I loaded into a few, had this error every time within the first few minutes. I downloaded a VPN someone on the Discord recommended (not at home but I'm pretty sure it's WindScribe?). I've played multiple games with the VPN turned on and not a single 0x30001 error. I'm sure other VPNs would work just as well.
I'm a UK resident so can't use it at present.
However I use a VPN which has a specific IP for US Netflix and it works.
The VPN is WindScribe.
I don't know if this node would allow the connection to the F1 but I'll give it a go when its accessible.
Not sure about app.
For VPN, try WindScribe, it's free and steady. 10G per month free to use once you register with your email address. I'm in China and using it everyday to refresh my feeds on Ins and FB.
WeChat payment is accepted almost everywhere. But you will have to make sure you have money in it. Chinese people have their bank cards bonded to wechat and that's why they can pay via wechat.
Hope it's helpful.
WindScribe is free at least can be free for over 2 weeks. I'm still using it on my phone for over 2months now, still free. Register with your email, you get 10G free per month. About Nord, I don't think it works well. I tried the trial plan, not able to connect at all every time.
This is Geo locked. UK users only unless you have a UK can use the WindScribe VPN for 10gb transfer per month for FREE. Sometimes you can get a 50gb or 60gb per month lifetime code. I've had a 50gb free for a few years now. You can use their client to pick a UK server and your browsing traffic looks like it comes from there.
If you want to use my referral link you'll get an extra 1gb per month on top of the 10gb. No
Also if you're looking for a good free VPN, we use WindScribe. You get 2 gb free per month, or 10 gb free per month if you confirm your email. One game is normally 1.5gb for us. We connect through Canada and it works great.
I signed up for PIA before leaving the UK, and testing iPlayer worked fine while still there.
I then moved abroad, and found iPlayer blocked me on my laptop with whatever PIA location I tried. In order to get a working solution I ended up using a different VPN (WindScribe - although there's a free level, you have to pay to use their "Windflix" server range, of which half work with iPlayer).
If there's a PIA solution I'm all ears!
ExpressVPN works well most of the time. I've been using it for half a year now. It drops sometimes at night. So I also use WindScribe, a free VPN that I've been using also for several months. It is free so far and I registered wtih my email and got 10G for free every month, far than enough for me.
You have to pay for WindScribe Pro in order to be able to pick the location "Windflix UK". If you are only using the free WindScribe then you only have a simple "UK" option which doesnt give access to the BBC iPlayer.
As it is, even as a paid user and using "Windflix UK", I have issues getting iPlayer content half of the time. I just reconnect until it works.
WindScribe isn't free though? At least, it wasn't for me when I bought it a year or two ago.
I believe it's based in Canada though, so it's still not "the best" because it can be asked to provide data on users, even though they do claim to not hold any data.
This isn't a VPN question but Technical Support question aimed for Astrill. I'm using a WindScribe VPN for non-Steam purposes and their client never gave me any problems at all. When using Steam, I'm turning it off, when I need anonymity for browsing, I turn it on from their client without any install-uninstall. Simple as that.
If Astrill VPN can't accomplish such basic tasks that other VPN clients are doing easily, you should either convince Astrill Support to solve the problem or try to find a better VPN that does it.
I wanted to add to this.
Windscribe has started failing recently. The environment is Verison and the phones are Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 8. Windscribe fails using both WiFi or cell tower. WindScribe stills works from my Windows 10 and my older tablet. I am using Windscribe Pro. This worked until a couple of days ago.
What gives wiyth this?
lol NordVPN? That sucks and costs more than what i already use.
go for WindScribe, you can watch netflix from US, canada, uk, japan.
plus no bandwidth limit, and no limit on number of devices connected at the same time afaik.
it's cheaper too.
-fellow netflixer via vpn
I use WindScribe and it streams out of market sports for me pretty well. It helps that I got it for free. They do giveaways for 50 or 60GBs for free a month and that's what I've been using. I don't use the whole 60GB because I use the VPN solely for streaming and not for overall web browsing.
I'm having this issue as well. Using WindScribe VPN. JD2 is incorrectly remembering the bandwidth limit as for me it always resets to 60 minutes. Sometimes even exiting and restarting doesn't help. It seems to help if you do a reconnect, drop the vpn wait for JD2 to say off-line and then start up the VPN. JD2 will notice the new IP and often will reset mega downloads.
Edit: I have had JD2 off for 12 hours and longer not downloading from Mega and on restart got the bandwidth limit. I fired up MegaSync and it started downloading right away. So it's not a Mega issue.
I've copied filter list from screenshots on your guide (+ a few extra), sadly still getting ads. It's something they must have introduced yesterday, since I never had such trouble before. The only addons Im using are Ghostery, noScript, uBlock origin and redding enhancement suite.
Btw, why are you discouraging people from using WindScribe in your guide, out of curiousity?
I'm using WindScribe VPN, you can find a lifetime subscription for around $50 ().
Start the VPN client and choose a connection point. Make sure the firewall on so internet traffic must go via the VPN.
Start MegaSync to start the download.
When you get to the limit, "bump" the vpn connection (disconnect & reconnect). You should get a new IP address and can start downloading.
Note: The IP address you get is shared by many users to help to hide your traffic. Because of this, some of those other users may also be downloading from Mega and so you might not be able to pull the full 5GB. Just bump the connection or choose a different location.
To be honest, I sometimes get lazy, and just let the download take it's time. I have a box dedicated to downloading so I just check it from time to time.
Also, I mostly use J-Downloader and the bump process is a bit different there.
I'm not sure about them and I haven't been able to extensively test it but I have been using Firefox 57 with the latest install of the extension and have experienced a similar issue. All of a sudden nothing will load, no matter how many refreshes, new tabs, new windows I make. Chrome and Safari work fine, other computers work fine. Once I quite Firefox and reopened it worked. I didn't even think it was a WindScribe issue until this person pointed it out, so I'm not sure. Just an FYI
I have both installed at the moment. I can confirm tunnelbear has New Zealand in the list of locations. Windscribe, however, seems like New Zealand is a premium only feature.
TunnelBear is also a 500MB limit, while WindScribe is 10GB. But New Zealand is still premium only.
> Someone with 100 sessions and 10GB used per month might be suspicious but not as suspicious as the account with one session and 5TB of monthly downloads
That is good to know. My own usage case is to give every single device (especially IoT devices) its own VPN connection to prevent Big Data cross-referencing information based on IP address. So I'll have a ton of low-bandwidth connections, but from WindScribe's point of view most of them will come from the same IP address because they are all behind a home router.
Out of the three of those, which do you recommend the most?
I love WindScibe, but I am having an issue with it disabling my internet completely if I launch windows without WindScribe running. So my only current option is to launch it with windows then manually close it.
I think that it usually refers to like web browsers and stuff that would track you without routing traffic through your tor program, however if you route all your traffic through the WindScribe firewall as is the default instead of making your connection less secure I would think it would make it more secure. For it would offer another layer of security, separation, and obfuscation to your already 'secure' onion connection
Ok, I was looking through the application in preferences. When I click the Debug tab, I see the TAP Driver = Not installed. But when I click the down arrow, there are two options available with one being WindScribe VPN. If I select it and click OK, it reverts back to Not installed.
How much free bandwidth do you start off with each month and how much extra does signing in each day get you?
I don't use VPNs for streaming services or torrenting and so my needs are super light but I stumbled onto an offer that WindScribe were offering 60GB per month a while back for their free accounts. Maybe keep an eye out for other similar offers.
There are some VPN providers, such as ProtonVPN, where their free tier doesn't have bandwidth usage limits but their speeds are a bit on the slow side. Just adding this info in as well in case speed isn't a top priority vs bandwidth limit.
I saw "Detect if LAN range is RFC-1918 complaint" in the changelog of build 30, but this does not seem to be the issue. I still cannot send a print job to the USB printer connected to my Fritz!Box while WindScribe is connected (via Windows desktop application).
I think the HQ for WindScribe is in Canada, so not the best privacy laws. I use it because I got a deal to pay a one time fee and have unlimited access forever, instead of annual payments elsewhere. I don't use them enough to be worth paying the high fees annually.
Hey guys I was not getting 100MB on VPN, what I meant was that my main line speed is 100MB and when using a competitors VPN service via my DDWRT configured router I was getting 10-20MB easily. With WindScribe no matter which server I configure in the router I barely get over 3MB. Whats weird is if I use the Windscribe desktop app I am getting faster speeds so not sure what is going on here. I am using port 443 btw in the router.
Visto che nessuno fa nomi inizio io:
WindScribe, ho comprato una licenza a vita a €50. In teoria non registrano niente della tua connessione.
Puoi provare la versione free.

Update just for those who were wondering -
I tried a lot of free VPNS to try and change my address, but most of them required a credit card, a subscription, or connected and disconnected extremely frequently when trying to VPN to a country outside of the US (I went for Hongkong/Singapore/Asia because I'm pretty sure is accessible there). I tried:
Tunnelbear VPN, HotSpotShield, vpn, and SurfEasy. In the end I got to WindScribe, which seemed like it was working (and has 10 free gb/month), but after vpn-ning in to HongKong it was extremely slow and wouldn't load after a ~15 minute wait. Google was working though - so results are inconclusive and this took me a good 2 hours to sift through, so try your luck!
On the other hand I'm now hunting for different mineral sunscreens that can be bought cheap :) hmu if you have any questions
>since it's legit it really makes windscribe kind of shady
... Okay? I've got a lifetime subscription, and I've already gotten a good value out of it. I know it's not unlikely I'll outlive WindScribe, but it's a great deal. I would imagine they bank on a lot of people using their lifetime accounts for a little while, then forgetting about them.
I can't always have the VPN on, some sites do not recognise me with VPN on (gambling sites, poker clients, banking, etc) it would be much better if I could attached a program to WindScribe that will NOT run unless windscribe firewall is on, or a firewall rule that does the same.
I have used both WindScribe and CyberGhost with RTE. Overall I'd say Cyberghost was better but I haven't been completely problem free with them either. I have usually been able to connect and watch using a UK server, though CyberGhost does have an Ireland server now. I also use them for BBC but it gets blocked and is unable to connect for about a week every 2 - 2 1/2 months or so. On the other hand, I haven't been able to get Windscribe to work with the BBC for months, which is why I went to Cyberghost.
I haven't logged in to RTE in a while, but haven't had any problems when I do.
I have been looking at alternatives though because of the CyberGhost downtime i mentioned. I'm starting my search with this list:
Yup! I use WindScribe. They have "Windflix" servers specifically for Netflix. I bought the VPN for lifetime for £50 a little while ago, but typically it's a pay-per-month service, although I think you can get it for free too (but limited servers perhaps).
As for how "safe/secure" it is; I truly don't know. But it is based in Canada, which isn't "the best", as they can be asked for data and have to provide it. But it seems good - there's a desktop app, a phone app and even a browser addon. It also blocks ads, so when you have it on your phone it's quite useful.
Let's say reasoning doesn't work with her and she doesn't respect your privacy:
Gain access to her computer, go to her browser settings and find her passwords - these are easily findable. There's a good chance she doesn't use 2FA (two factor authentication - using your phone as an extra security check when you log in) so you can log into her Facebook account without her knowing.
When logged in (use a free VPN like WindScribe, so if it fails, it looks like a hacking attempt) set all her security settings to private. This way no one will see her posts.
Alternatively you could hide individual posts, but that's more work.
The last option is changing her password (if you have her email access) though a Facebook account and then delete the account. It isn't deleted until after 30 days though, so it's a bad option.
Windscribe was good when I bought a lifetime sub July, 2016.
Now I get 3-25 Mbps (Central US) but can get the full 100Mbps w/o Windscribe, using .
I occasionally check back to see if there are any NO.
No problems with ExpressVPN, NordVPN, IvacyVPN, BufferedVPN.
I am VERY disappointed with WindScribe and CAN NOT recommend it.
However, I will stay hopeful that Windscribe rectifies whatever problems that they are having..
So, I believe I was able to get WindScribe working before anyone logs into the Windows 7 PC by using .
Unfortunately, port forwarding to my PC through the WindScribe connection doesn't work so it's a bit difficult to test.
WindScribe icon is not in the system tray, but I'm still getting the VPN IP when I test it from an IP checking website.
Now, if I could only get DDNS to work with ZoneEdit on my router I'd be happy!... but that's another story.
Always worked for me for the away games I couldn't make last year. In fact, it seemed that you could start the stream using a VPN then just turn the VPN off and it'd work fine. I used WindScribe VPN which gives me 50gb per month for free, which is more than enough for my usage.
Don’t even pay monthly for the VPN. Get a lifetime of WindScribe for like $70. That’s what I did and I never looked back. I’ve torrented and DDL’d with their VPN and afaik, no ISP letters. Sure they might be selling data, this and that, but if it ain’t being sold to copyright holders or my ISP, that’s what matters. Everyone sells data these days. I don’t care what you say. So the thought of my data being sold alone doesn’t make a difference.
If he/she gifts you the game from the US do the following on your mobile....
Use a VPN (WindScribe for example) and set your connection in the states while on your mobile
Settings > Language > Location change to the US
Close the app down and make sure it’s not running in the background then launch and go to Settings > Language > Location
Then redeem your US code.
Change back the UK one done and continue the DL on your console.
Or go to while connected to the US, login and redeem your code.
I have the same problem, but intermittent. WindScribe often gets stuck loading pages, to the point of making Firefox become almost unresponsive. If I disable the extension, restart Firefox, and try again, everything works perfectly.
I have been researching and I've narrowed it down to either NordVPN or WindScribe. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information on the paid version of WindScribe, mostly just old posts on the free version. Looking at the comparison chart it would seem NordVPN is out in front but I was hoping someone could give me a better breakdown of the drawbacks of WindScribe and if there's really that good of a reason to go with NordVPN (or something else) over it.
Thanks. But but but -- all VPN servers must follow US law. And if a server is in the US, it probably is forced to keep logs. So, if someone is looking to trace who was using p2p, they can serve notice to VPN server. VPN server would then have to give out user-details.
So, instead of your existing ISP, you'd get notice from your VPN/WindScribe. Right?
Try WindScribe. Don’t need an email for signup, accepting 20 different cryptos, but when you get to CoinPayments screen they ask for email. Just generate a fake one with FakeMailBot on Telegram or your preferred burner mail option. BitPay is trash. Hate the way they try to trap you by not working with anything but their wallet. Just give us the god damn address to copy.
When mine gets stuck, there's usually something like "Performing a TLS handshake to ..." hanging in the bottom-left corner of the Firefox window. When starting WindScribe I sometimes get a browser authentication request:
The proxy :443 is requesting a username and password. The site says: “Windscribe-Proxy”
I tried PrivateTunnel at the suggestion of the VPN subreddit, but it only had 200MB free data, which would be enough to play OSRS modestly for a couple days since RS is really low on data usage, but I accidentally watched a youtube video and it was all gone. Others on this subreddit have suggested TunnelBear, and WindScribe.
Un collègue m'avait parlé de SoftEther mais je sais pas ce que ça vaut.
Il y a WindScribe, mais qui a une offre de 50 Go gratuits avec le code '50GBFREE' une fois que t'as crée un compte.
Sinon je ferais pas confiance à un VPN gratuit, tes données ne seraient pas sécurisées.
Not positive about Android and not really sure on definition of “upstream proxy”, however I can tell you on iOS I can have AdGuard and WindScribe on at the same time, so AdGuard does the blocking, Windscribe does the encryption. However, with ROBERT I have found that AdGuard is pretty unnecessary.
No Computer, so I have Windscribe on android only, my Samsung tablet and my Bravia TV which the only app are Kodi and TuneIn
WindScribe is install on both, I'm 99% certain that I did not open unsafe link or site lately. I never change the server.
I will delete my Twitter and Google account and create new account
That's awesome, thanks! I tried WindScribe today but I got speeds around ~15-25% of my normal Mega speeds :( I'll try again tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to use up all 50GB of the WindScribe cap lol
