Surshark VPN: Stay Private and Protected on the Web

In this digital age, you can almost do anything online. You can use the web not just to gain quick access to the information you need, but you can also make use of it to communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world. The internet also provides a convenient way for different transactions, such as online banking, shopping for essentials, or making travel bookings. You can also find various streaming channels on the web where you can watch or rent your favorite movies and TV shows or listen to podcasts or music playlists.

But as you connect your device to the internet, you may also unknowingly expose private information to hackers and data thieves. These cybercriminals can disable your device and control it remotely or trick you into downloading malware and viruses into it. They can also steal your personal information and use your identity for personal gain.

Surfshark is a VPN company that offers web privacy and protection at an affordable price.

About Surfshark

Surfshark was founded in 2018, and while it is new to the market, it has made its way as one of the most trusted VPN companies today. The company is based in the British Virgin Islands, which is a country outside the surveillance of the Five Eyes, Nine Eyes, and 14 Eyes Alliances. This means that the US government cannot force Surfshark to give out information, which adds an extra blanket of security to your data.

How can Surfshark protect your digital life?

Surfshark provides VPN (Virtual Private Network) services, which enable web users to surf the web safely and privately.

The primary function of a VPN is to keep your online web browsing activities by hiding your real IP address. When you connect your PC, phone, or laptop to a VPN, you get a temporary IP address that allows you to browse the internet anonymously, which in turn, protects your data from spying and scanning tools hackers use.

Pricing and Subscription Plans

Surfshark offers a free trial of 7 days, which runs on any Android, iOs, or macOS device. Once you subscribe to the 7-day free trial, you can use the VPN service on any device.

Surfshark also offers three paid subscription options. You can get the monthly plan at $12.95 per month, the 6-month plan at $6.49 per month, or the 2-year plan at $2.49 per month. If you add $.099 per month to your subscription, you also enjoy the Surshark Alert feature, which sends alerts in case your email appears in leaked databases, plus the Surfshark Search, which allows fast and ad-free web searches.

Surfshark offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all subscription plans. Payment options include AmazonPay, Google Pay, Crypto Currencies, and Dragon Pay.

Features of Surshark VPN

Like with any other VPN, you want to know if it will satisfy all your needs. Therefore, we took it upon ourselves to make a list of the most important features of Surshark VPN. The following list of features is intended to make your decision making easier when searching for a valuable VPN;

Secure Encryption

Surfshark protects your data using AES-256-GCM Encryption. You can also choose from different VPN protocols such as IKEv2, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, and Wireguard®.

Adblock VPN with CleanWeb

Adblock VPN with CleanWeb allows you to browse different websites privately and securely, freeing your browser from malware and adware. By blocking annoying pop ads and banners, you can visit web pages faster. You can also save on mobile data when a Wi-Fi connection is not available.

Unlimited Devices

Unlike other VPN companies that enable users to connect a maximum number of devices to the VPN, Surfshark lets you connect all your devices – and your family’s devices, too – all at the same time, regardless of the operating system.

Whitelister

Whitelister is Surfshark’s version of VPN split tunneling, a feature that allows you to choose which websites to access through the VPN’s encrypted tunnel, and which resources go through the internet. This way you can use online services that need to be protected the most. You can also access network devices, such as printers and fax machines, without shutting down your VPN connection.

Strict No-logs Policy

Surfshark’s VPN has no access to your online activities. It does not collect or store details like timestamps, browsing history, or bandwidth usage. The RAM-only servers wipe out all information once you disconnect your device from the server.

Servers also use the Camouflage mode, also referred to as obfuscation, which keeps your browsing and downloading activities private that even your internet service provider won’t know you are using a VPN.

Kill Switch

In case your VPN connection drops without warning, the kill switch feature automatically disconnects your device from the internet, preventing the risk of your web browsing activities from being exposed and sensitive data from being leaked.

As of this writing, Surfshark lets you connect to more than 1,700 servers in 63 countries around the globe, including the United States, Australia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.

      Surfshark for the win!
      VPNs like Hide My Ass or Private Internet Access or Nord may have many more servers but most (except for Nord maybe) are not better overall than Surfshark.

      Premier VPN
      Surfshark might not have as many servers worldwide as NordVPN does or other VPNs, but for what they have, they do an awesome job of it. And they are expanding rapidly. And they are cheaper than anything else of this level of quality. There is plenty here to make this a premier VPN.

      Does Surfshark unblock Netflix? Yes it does
      Unblocks Netflix like it’s no one’s business. This is the first reason why I got it and no problems there 😉

      The price of this VPN is unbeatable
      The price of this VPN is unbeatable! If you wait for a Halloween or Christmas sale then you’ll get this for pennies. And it’s a really good VPN that has everything needed to surf the web while staying private.

      More pros than cons
      What I like: constant updates, new versions coming out with small (or large) improvements. I love seeing this and it happens all the time. They are also adding new servers regularly and a few new countries here and there.

      What I dislike: I can’t see the actual servers or select specific ones within a country and city. Other VPNs have these options but Surfshark chose to do things differently. I would like to have the option to switch between servers in the same city with ease.

      Among the best VPNs
      I tested a few of the better VPNs out there and I have to say that SurfShark is among the best for sure. And it keeps getting better with each passing month!

      Great price + awesome quality
      I’ve asked them to add more countries from South America and a few more from Canada but I’m pretty happy with what they offer already anyway. And their prices are also pretty cool and they often offer discounts so you can get a great price if you pay attention just like I did 😉

      Surfshark is a 5 star VPN
      I would never be caught dead without a Kill switch and I won’t use a VPN that doesn’t have one. Fortunately Surfshark does have it and it works properly as I’ve tested it a few times.

      Let’s get more servers
      Over 60 countries and many, many cities within those countries make for a good VPN. I want even more servers in more cities within the US (maybe 10+ more cities with 5-10 serves each) and I’m all set.

      Would like to see all the servers in a city
      What I don’t like is that you can’t pick from a list of servers in a city. For example I know for sure they have multiple servers in Milan but I can’t select different ones unless I reconnect. I don’t know why they chose to do things this way. Other than this it’s all good.

      Keep the countries/cities/servers coming!
      Plenty of countries to choose from and the price tag is really awesome! Considering this is a quite new VPN, they have done a bang-up job so far! Let’s keep the countries coming!

      A top 3 without a doubt
      SurfShark has done a tremendous job so far in growing like no other VPN! For those that don’t know, they are the best VPN considering their presence on the market. They are very new to the whole ballgame and still they are considered to be in the top 5 or even top 3 VPNs world wide.

      I use Surfshark VPN on a daily basis
      Surfshark has a lot of interesting options like the refresh speed metrics where I can see my latency – a lower latency is great for gaming, for example. It’s generally a great VPN that I use on a daily basis.

      I enjoy using Surfshark
      I like that they ask you (from time to time) if you are happy with your connection. If you click the thumbs up then it’s all good but if the connection is bad then just click the thumbs down and it will reconnect to another server in that city and country. Generally, the second, everything goes well.

      Great quality and price mix
      Sometimes I may encounter a bad connection but that doesn’t happen often so I am generally happy with Surfshark. I think they offer a great quality and price mix.

      Very average!!
      No static ip addresses that you can buy, drastically reduced speed and awful customer service. The trial period was enough to help me decide. I don’t know what I will use in the end though but i won’t be using Surfshark!!!

      Way too restrictive!
      They have very limited secure audit for a company that charges an arm and a leg for a service that others provide for way less. NordVPN all the way for me!

      Just perfect
      Reliable and fast but way too expensive for the full price. The second day after paying for a 2 year subscription the price was 58%, a huge bummer for me…

      Updates can be tricky
      Some of the latest updates have been buggy to say the least but they answered my ticket within less than 24hours and helped me to fix the issue on my mac.

      If you buy on sale you can save a lot so don’t rush, they have discounted prices every couple of months.

      Best VPN!!
      SurfShark is more expensive than some of its competitors but it delivers so much more than just online protection. Our family uses the mobile and desktop versions with no hiccups, we will continue using it after our subscription expires.

      Easy to switch between countries
      If you expect to have the same download speed you will be disappointed. This reduced my down by almost 40%, even more when torrenting but this is no news. Even the servers across the globe have decent speed, I for one am satisfied with what I got

      Good connection for almost all EU countries
      This is the first vpn I’ve tried. I’m a freelancer so I have to access websites from a lot of countries and this service allows me to stay connected at all times. Easy to connect, easier to disconnect, there’s zero latency on my end.

      SS is not a cheap vpn but it offers excellent quality for the money you pay. I don’t know if other vpn services have the Whitelister feature as well but for me this is pure gold!!!!

      This VPN is awesome!
      I bought a month before jumping and getting a 2 year subscription just to make sure it’s worth my money and I recommend doing this with other vpn services as well. I use it on my phone, tablet and both laptops with zero problems.

      Netflix has been hit or miss lately but this is due to the company’s policy against VPN companies, I’m sure Surfshark will fix this soon.
