Daily Deal: Windscribe VPN Lifetime Subscription

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Windscribe is much more than a VPN. It’s a desktop application and browser extension that work in conjunction to protect your online privacy, unblock websites, and remove ads and trackers from your everyday browsing. With Windscribe, you’ll never mess with confusing settings and options menus again; just turn it on on your desktop once, and it’s good to go in the background forever. It is available for $39 from the Techdirt Deals Store.

    Windscribe

    Need more tech details... just showing "Linux" compatible is not enough. PPTP or OpenVPN? and so forth.

    Techdirt freqently advertises poor quality vpn's.

    ...and most vpn's are poor quality. -I havn't bothered to check this one.

    You inherently place alot of trust in your vpn provider- there's really no avoiding that. -Some of the better vpn companies go out of there way to not just eliminate all logging, but to obfuscate routing, secure DNS, and deliberately NOT create any links between Payment/id and Network/id. The best companies also post/link all the software source code and server settings they're using- there's no secret sauce to this, anyone claiming otherwise is selling snake oil. -In the end you're still taking whatever company you use at their word that they do what they say they do; there's only so much you can check. Do proper research before signing up for anyhting.

    Here's a good research tool for anyone interested.
