When you browse, your Windows machine connects to thousands of web servers every single day. Most of these connections are to advertising and tracking services that build profiles on you, and sell them to the highest bidder. Windscribe will greatly reduce these needless connections and mask your IP.
Your Internet Service Provider can see what websites you visit, and how often. This data is stored for long periods of time, and made available to law enforcement, advertisers, and data brokers. There is no reason for them to know what you do online.
A VPN will likely NOT improve your raw download speeds, however by eliminating countless ads and trackers from every single website or application you will notice a huge improvement in page load times.
If you download shady Windows software or open email attachments from people you don’t expect to send you attachments, a VPN will not help you to stay secure. Basic common sense will, and it’s free!
Changing your IP doesn't magically make you anonymous. While Windscribe does help to a certain degree by hiding your location using our apps and browser extensions, it’s just one part in the quest for online anonymity.
In most cases, a VPN will increase your latency (ping), since you’re adding another hop to every single connection. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but in most cases this is true.
