  1. DNS Leak Test

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

  1. WebRTC Test

Final Word

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

The scoring system putting Windscribe in the intermediate category.

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