Last Customer Reviews: Hide.me vs Windscribe

Steve
I tried Surfshark, Nord and Torguard before Windscribe, they all were less than stellar (various reasons). For the $$, and the fact that WS stays connected far better vs.the others, it was worth it (for me) to go WS Pro. Another selling point, WS android app has IKEv2 and Split-tunnel included, no need for strongswan app(another VPN hassle).
