Windscribe

Postby fincalospinos » Fri May 28, 2021 8:21 am

I recently downloaded the Windscribe VPN onto Windows 10, and use Chrome and Brave browsers. I am having a problem whereby every time I close the browser and reopen it, I have to login to my gmail email, hotmail and Facebook accounts. Can anyone advise as to how I can overcome this problem.

Hi fincalospinos,
Some things to try...........

also check Chrome runs in background when closed........see Chrome settings

Out of interest how effective is the Ad Blocker............ :?:

Hi Enrique,

Thanks for the link, I will look at it later.

I only downloaded yesterday so its early days, but the ad blocker seems to be working ok, although I do have ad blocker on Brave which also works well, however you need to turn it off to access some sites.

Second that, the adblocker built into brave works a treat. Also allows blocking of cookies, scripts, force https connection. All on a per url basis.

The only negative i have against Brave is that it won't auto translate as Chrome does.

It shows sites in the original language. You can however highlight and translate in the context menu.

I'm pretty sure i read somewhere that although Brave is based on the open source chrome code the developers didn't want to integrate googles translation service and so make it less independant.
