General information for Windscribe Limited
Windscribe Limited is an IT company that focuses on privacy and security, its flagship app being Windscribe VPN. Its headquarters is in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, just north of Toronto.
The overall goal of the company is to develop easy to use yet powerful tools, that allow anyone to circumvent censorship, access geographically restricted content, and minimize their exposure to marketers, criminals, and surveillance dragnets.
A company with a worldwide reach
The company owns servers in over 63 countries and 110 cities, allowing you to block IPs and domains (ads) of your choice on all devices.
They also focus on efficiency in their protection thanks to the AES-256 cipher with SHA512 auth and a 4096-bit RSA key.
Multiple tools for a complete security package
Unlike other VPN developers, subscribing to their services (or free plans for that matter) doesn’t mean you’ll only get one product.
Windscribe is a set of tools that work together to block ad trackers and web beacons, restore access to blocked content and help you safeguard your privacy online, essentially being a combination between a VPN and a browser security service.
To that extent, the overall purpose of the company is to block ad trackers and web beacons, restore access to blocked content, and help you safeguard your privacy online.
Although the two components can be used independently, the developer recommends that you use the two together for maximum performance.
