Our privacy is under attack like never before which is probably why VPNs are becoming so popular these days. The VPN Windscribe offers a free plan that gets you started with secure internet browsing, and right now if you use the voucher code FACTORY2 you can get 20GB of data per month for your first year. Normally, the free plan starts at 2GB a month and you can jump through some hoops to get your account up to 15GB if you try hard enough by referring friends and so forth. Or, you can just use that code and avoid the hoops altogether.

Windscribe VPN

The VPN Windscribe offers a free plan that gets you started with secure internet browsing, and right now if you use the below code you can get 20GB of data per month. The code works when signing up for a new account or when upgrading an existing one.

Free

With coupon: FACTORY2

It's easy to redeem the offer at Windscribe. All you have to do is sign up for a new account and click "Have a voucher?" in order to enter the code. You'll then be able to create a free account and verify your email. Once you've confirmed your email and logged into your dashboard, you should see the 20GB allowance under My Account. If not, you can click the "Claim Voucher" button and try entering code FACTORY2 again. If you already have an existing account, this is where you can upgrade to 20GB too. Note that if you do not provide an email when signing up, you'll be limited to just 10GB per month with the code.

Windscribe has many of the features you might expect a VPN to have: super-strong encryption, private internet browsing, a system for blocking malware and ads, a manual configuration for the VPN in the event you don't want to use the automatic apps, and static IPs. Windscribe promises to delete all logs within a few minutes of you logging off so none of your data is collected to be used against you later. It's also compatible with a wide variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, BlackBerry, and more.

Keep in mind the free plan does have limited features. For example, while Windscribe has servers in more than 100 countries, the free plan only works in a few major ones like the U.S., Canada, France, and about half a dozen more. You also don't get access to some advanced stuff like Windflix, which lets you get around the Netflix country restriction. But that's ok. Use the free features and see if they are enough. If not, it's easy to upgrade to do even more.
