See Winston in Action
Your every online move is being tracked by big tech companies, advertisers, data brokers, governments, and more. Winston allows you to retake control of your data and use the Internet without giving up a staggering amount of personal information.
Your monthly service comes with daily updates to our anti-tracking and anti-malware database, encrypted DNS, unlimited cloaked bandwidth and software updates.
If your monthly service lapses, anonymization, encrypted DNS, and updates will automatically terminate. Your device will continue to function but at a reduced level of functionality.
We’re providing a 100% delivery guarantee – if Winston isn’t produced or delivered for any reason – we’ll fully return the money pledged via Kickstarter.
For purchases outside the USA, customers are responsible for VAT/GST.
Winston’s founder, Richard Stokes, was in the ad-tech industry for over a decade, most recently as the Global Head of Innovation for the media intelligence division of the world’s largest advertising agency. In that role, he saw the industry move to embrace new technologies that track, mine, and sell private information (imagine every song you like, every relationship, every purchase you make, and every secret you have being stored forever in the cloud). That was the beginning of the omnipresent surveillance state.
Rich decided this was not a world that he wanted his children to grow up in. It all came down to one question…if he wasn’t the person to do something about it, then who would?
That’s where Winston comes in.
We founded Winston Privacy with a clear mission: to help Internet users take back control over their personal information.
Comprehensive privacy is not only possible, it’s realistic. Our team is made of people with diverse technical backgrounds and skill sets, and a deep knowledge of the state of online privacy. Our founder is an engineer by training who left a career in advertising after seeing firsthand the increasing abuses of personal data that are taking place.
At Winston, we’re not only building products that put the power back into your hands, we’re also advocating for change.
