Both PIA and Windscribe are popular providers, with only minor differences between them. Starting off with price, both services are cheap, but Windscribe costs a little more than PIA. Windscribe also offers a free VPN service, while Private Internet Access offers a 7-day money-back guarantee on all subscriptions. Even though PIA has over 3,000 servers in 25 countries, compared to Windscribe’s roughly 300 servers in over 50 countries, Windscribe offers more stable connections and higher speeds. In addition, Windscribe can access heavily restricted services such as Netflix, but PIA can’t.
Both VPNs abide by no-logs policies, use excellent encryption, and provide superb security features, including a kill switch (Firewall for Windscribe) and ad blocking. However, PIA outshines Windscribe by offering additional layers of encryption and dedicated IPs. Both VPNs offer browser extensions and user-friendly apps for all devices, including Smart TVs and routers. However, PIA gives you up to five simultaneous connections, whereas Windscribe can be used on an unlimited number of devices. Windscribe also offers live chat support, while PIA’s support is limited to a slow ticketing system.
So it’s a close contest – scroll down to see which VPN comes out as the winner!
