  1. DNS Leak Test

Usually, I would connect to the nearest country to my location. But the free version of Windscribe has a limited selection of locations, so I will just go with the US. All great.

  1. WebRTC Test

All is good. As expected with a US IP.

Final Word

There you have it, my full examination with a score for Windscribe.

The scoring system puts Windscribe in the intermediate category.

Not as elite as ExpressVPN or Surfshark but certainly not in the lower ranking of Hotspot Shield.
