  • good reminder 🙂

    But i deeply not agree that removing history from google services, or using privatemode inside a browser will keep you save from companies collecting your data.

    Today systems get smarter from minute to minute, and it is enough to get a resonace of your network traces, combine them with hard points, like facebook emailaccounts or similar network identity, to track all what you are doing on the web.

    So to go more secure, the first thing i would do is to remove all social media accounts first.
    Use a VPN network service you can trust. (and you are able to pay for 😉 )

    If you want do private search / communication over web: use TOR (and get into it).
    Use encrypted Email (real encryption with secure shared keys from person to person).

  • Thanks for the video @fernandomaroto 🙂 .

    If it comes to that for anyone viewing this in the future, I would highly recommend Windscribe. Just install the extension for your browser and sign up on their website! It’s free up until you reach a certain amount of MB, and then it renews itself after the end of every month. It’s just enough for me to last each month personally. In addition, it offers fast speeds and is a reliable company. It is already being noted as one of the top 5 VPNs online 🙂 .

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    Yeah, great tip, but for those who do not LIVE in Portugal, as it is only free for some few countries. I’m mad. And sad. Damn it.

  • It’s not free for Portugal? I might be a bit confused here…

    It’s only free for these countries:
    United States
    Canada
    United Kingdom
    Hong Kong
    France
    Germany
    Luxembourg
    Netherlands
    Switzerland
    Norway
    Romania

    Portugal is not on the list. Yeah, damn it! On the upgrade page it shows the available countries. https://windscribe.com/upgrade

  • It appears you are looking at their free server locations. These are locations that are free for you to appear to be coming from via their VPN. You can install their extension from any country, but once you do so, you can only set your IP location to one of those free places on the chart. I don’t believe it has anything to do with actually using the VPN itself.

    Hope this helps 🙂 .

    Correct. I already created an account, installed from AUR the windscribre program and login and connected.

    It works, 2gb free, 10gb if you confirm the email. 15gb if you tweet about them.
    Free VPN, what’s not to like it?

  • By the way, it connected to France, but on their site they say most of their servers are on the (des)United States and America, so no luck getting out of No Such Agency with this one.

  • Well, I’m glad you were at least able to install and use it 🙂 .

    If anyone wants to use it, install from AUR the CLI (command line interface) like this:

    yaourt -S windscribe-cli

    Then you need to register on the site, confirm email, usual stuff.

    Then on the terminal use it like this:

    1 - start the service: sudo systemctl start windscribe
    2 - logon: windscribe login
    3 - connect: windscribe connect

    Here an example:

    [[email protected] log]$ systemctl start windscribe
    [[email protected] log]$ windscribe login
    Windscribe Username: casquinhas
    Windscribe Password: casquinhas-linux-expert
    Logged In
    [[email protected] log]$ windscribe connect
    Connecting to France (UDP:443)
    Firewall Enabled
    Connected to France
    Your IP changed from 159.12.348.674 to 85.18.11.958
    [[email protected] log]$

    You can now browse using the VPN but check if your browser is using system settings. Check your public IP.

    When you’re done, stop using the VPN by doing this:

    [[email protected] log]$ windscribe logout
    Logged Out, Disconnecting
    Firewall Disabled
    DISCONNECTED
    [[email protected] log]$ windscribe disconnect
    Firewall Disabled
    DISCONNECTED
    [[email protected] log]$ systemctl stop windscribe

    Have fun. Don’t forget that you also have TOR.

    ps: some IP’s might not represent a real IP, sometimes I do tricky changes… or maybe it’s the amazing beer of Portugal.

  • Thanks! I’ve been searching online for this very information - how to actually use windscribe-cli - but had found nothing. Your post above really helped 🙂 .
