This VPN has pretty good ratings by The Privacy Guy for as much as that means. I've found that both the VPN and the browser extension are useful tools but this would never be my one and only VPN. I popped for one of the offers from a 3rd party site, something like 3 years for $20us, and was pleasantly surprised to get a coupon code that kept the transaction details separate from the Windscribe account and I set up an anonymous account with a disposable email. I set it up in a router to give me a different server somewhere in the US each time I boot the router and it works reliably. Keep in mind that I never use the software from Windscribe just generic OpenVPN. I do use the browser extension but never with the paid account. I just set up a 2gb per month no email basic account. Every computer and every browser has its own account. Apart from the encrypted proxy, it has an assortment of tools specific to browsing including a user agent rotator, social button suppressor, and tracking blocker. I've replaced Ghostery with it. It does much more and I trust Windscribe more than Ghostery. The proxy works great over TOR if you need a stable IP while using TOR.
