not to be a nay sayer here, but this seems awfully sketchy.
Let me quickly preface by saying I’ve been in the info sec industry for nearly 7 years. The fact that they require a download to connect to the vpn is very odd. Especially when they require a package be installed for linux.
Dropping a .ovpn file is sufficient for all the other reputable providers…so why not this one?
Additionally, regarding log retention they only state: “We store when you last used Windscribe as well as the total amount of bandwidth used in a 30 day period to enforce free tier limitations and prevent abuse. This is a rolling counter and is not kept historically.”
FWIW this is often enough to determine activity. Just saying.
Since most of this forum focuses on for VPN and proxy usage for masking origin, that may be enough. But just thought I’d throw out that word of caution.
