Firewall
Eliminate the chance of any kind of leak.
Windscribe firewall, sometimes incorrectly called a "kill switch" utilizes native OS APIs to block all connectivity outside of the tunnel.If your tunnel drops for any reason, the chance of leaks is completely eliminated. This is superior to a reactive "kill switch", which cannot guarantee that your IP will not leak.

Split Tunneling
Eliminate the chance of any kind of leak.
There are cases when you don't wish to tunnel all your traffic through a VPN. Windscribe offers 2 split tunneling types, and 2 modes for each one.
Pre-App Split Tunneling
Allows you to select specific apps that go over the VPN tunnel, or alternatively you can exclude specific apps from the tunnel.
Network Level Split Tunneling
Allows you to select IP addresses, domains and whole IP networks to be tunneled over the VPN, or excluded from the tunnel.
MAC Address Spoofing
Appear as a brand new user, every time you connect.
When you use public Wifi, the operators will usually store your MAC address in some database. This allows them to track you when you return to the same network, or track your across different networks operated by the same company.Mac spoofing prevents that by allowing you to generate a new MAC address on every single network.
Network Rules
Connect or Disconnect Automatically.
Create custom rules for different Wifi networks. As soon as your enter a new Wifi, Windscribe can do something.This includes automatically connecting or disconnecting from a VPN server, or connecting via a specific protocol.
Custom Config Support
Import any VPN config into Windscribe.
You may have your own VPN servers that you operate yourself, or ones that are provided by your workplace or even a different VPN provider. You can import any OpenVPN or WireGuard VPN config into Windscribe, and use it as if it's a Windscribe location.You still get all the benefits and features of Windscribe. You don't even have to have a Windscribe account! Simply choose "Config only" mode from the splash screen, and use Windscribe as a VPN utility.
Proxy Gateway
Proxy Server for any Device.
Creates a secure HTTP or SOCKS5 proxy server on your computer. Any device on your network can use this proxy server in order to make requests over the tunnel. Handy for devices that don't support VPNs.
