  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

Windscribe-WebRTC-Leak-Test

All is good. As expected with a US IP.

  1. IPV6 Leak Test

  1. Windscribe Server Farm

Support was rather slow but they did help out with my queriest. Below is their reply, feel free to check out.

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.
