Surfshark VPN is owned by the Surfshark BV company, which was established in the Netherlands and operates under Dutch Law. From the British Virgin Islands, Surfshark has relocated its official base of operations to the Netherlands. On this matter, Surfshark claimed: "The Netherlands serves no legal obligation for companies to log or retain user data, thus we can continue upholding our strict no-logs policy".

Surfshark VPN Features
[Image: 8-Benefits-Glance-3.gif]

  • CleanWeb

    CleanWeb is our most popular feature included in every single one of our subscription packages. Works as an adblocker! It will block ads and malicious links on your browser before they can harm you. With CleanWeb enabled, the browser will show fewer ads, and fewer trackers will work. Not to mention you will be protected from some phishing attempts and malware! (Available on Android, iOS, macOS, Windows).
    [Image: 9-Clean-Web.gif]

    [Image: 4-Bypasser.gif]
  • Bypasser™

    Surfshark's Bypasser™ is an innovative tool that allows you to control your connectivity by choosing what applications or websites to route via VPN and vice versa. It is Surfshark's - split tunneling bypass!

    Bypasser™ has two options:
    • Bypass VPN blocks selected applications and websites from using the VPN connection. 

    • Reverse Bypasser (route via VPN) is an alternative, allowing only the chosen applications and websites to use the VPN connection. Reverse Bypasser (route via VPN) Reverse Bypasser allows you to select apps that will go only through the VPN tunnel. All other apps will see your real IP address. (Available on Android, Windows).

    [Image: 11-Pause-vpn.png]
  • Pause VPN

    Pause VPN is a new Surfshark VPN feature. Surfshark provides a "button" on your connection screen that puts your VPN on hold. You can choose to pause the connection for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours. The VPN connection will automatically resume once the selected time period ends.

    Once activated, it allows your entire internet traffic to skip the VPN protection (the encryption and private tunneling) for a certain amount of time. What Pause VPN doesn’t do is disconnect you from the VPN. 

    You could look at it like Bypasser™ (a feature that skips VPN protection for selected apps and sites -- for your entire connection. But instead of specific apps or websites skipping the VPN, it pauses the protection for a limited time.
    Surfshark Pause VPN!

    [Image: 4-Kill-Switch.gif]
  • KillSwitch

    Kill Switch is a smart feature on the Surfshark apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. It turns off your internet connection if the VPN connection unexpectedly drops, protecting your data and location from exposure until you're reconnected. If you unexpectedly disconnect from Surfshark, KillSwitch will ensure that no sensitive data gets out by cutting off the internet connection until you reconnect to a Surfshark VPN server. Turn it on if you want to take extended security measures. (Available on Android, iOS, macOS, Windows).

    [Image: 13-Camouflage-Mode.png]
  • Camouflage mode

    Camouflage mode, or also called Obfuscation, is one of many Surfshark features that makes your connectivity look like a regular internet connection from the outside by removing any VPN traces on your connection. This mode also does not affect your security in any way and even enhances it. Camouflage mode automatically runs when you connect to our servers using OpenVPN (UDP or TCP) protocols. You will find an option to change the protocol in the Settings menu of the Surfshark application. Camouflage mode makes your connection look like regular browsing traffic. It assures that even your internet provider can’t tell that you’re using a VPN. Stay private, always. (Available on Android, Windows, iOS, macOS, Linux).

  • Override GPS location.

    Almost all Android phones have a GPS function. A VPN itself does not cover GPS location tracking, but Surfshark's Override GPS location feature allows you to match your GPS signal to the Surfshark server's location that you are connected to. (Available on Android).
    How to change your GPS location?

    Most smartphones nowadays have a GPS function that allows finding your exact location. This function is often used by applications that require your physical location to provide the service or some specific features. 

    [Image: 14-No-Borders.gif]
  • NoBorders

    NoBorders is a Surfshark feature that allows you to use our VPN through network restrictions. If our app detects that someone’s trying to restrict your network (like your school’s firewall or internet provider) it will automatically activate NoBorders mode. This will give you a list of servers (and will connect you to the closest one automatically) that work best under network restrictions like geo-blocking or government censorship.

    NoBorders allows Surfshark users to bypass restrictive regions (countries such as China, Russia, or UAE have huge network restriction) with no issues. When Surfshark app detects any kind of restrictions on your network, NoBorders automatically enables (turns-ON) , which gives you a selected list of servers that perform the best under such network restrictions. 

    Normally, NoBorders mode will turn on automatically whenever needed. (Available on Android, Windows, macOS, iOS).

  • Invisible to devices.

    This feature allows your device to be "invisible" to other devices on the same network. Therefore, you will be unable to communicate with other devices on the same network, e.g., printers, portable speakers, smart TVs, Chromecasts, etc. However, this feature will come in handy on public networks - where you do not want any other devices on the same network to connect to your device. (Available on Windows, Android).

  • Auto-connect

    This feature will save you some time because you won't need to open the Surfshark app and click any button to connect to Surfshark servers. 

    With "Auto-connect", your device will connect to Surfshark VPN as soon as it finds Wi-Fi or ethernet connection. Note: The "Trusted Network" feature (available in the Surfshark application for iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS) cooperates with the "Auto-connect" feature, as trusted networks will only work with auto-connect enabled. Once you enable auto-connect, a "Preference" tab will appear on all devices. There you will be able to add or remove trusted networks. See link below for more information on "Trusted Network".


  • Start with Windows
    This feature will make the Surfshark app start automatically as soon as you boot your computer, so you do not need to search for it and start manually. (Available on Windows).

  • Change Protocol
    Your Surfshark app has an option to change the default protocol. A protocol is a set of rules that negotiates and maintains the connection between your device and the Surfshark VPN server. Almost everything you do online is based on sending and receiving information. Your information has to be divided into small chunks of data (packets) to send it. Protocols determine in what order these packets will be sent, what encryption will protect them, etc. 

    Surfshark utilizes the protocols below:
    • OpenVPN
    • WireGuard®
    • IKEv2 / IPsec

  • Change Data Encryption

    An option to change the default encryption cipher is available on the Surfshark app for Androids.  Encryption cipher is an algorithm that encrypts the information that is sent and received to your device. Encryption ensures that your information is encoded, and no one else can read it. (Note: Surfshark VPN uses IKEv2/IPsec, OpenVPN, and WireGuard with the AES-256-GCM algorithm, which is faster than just AES-256.

  • Static Servers

    Surfshark has many different servers in each location. Therefore, if you connect to a New York location, you might get a different IP address each time. However, if you connect to a static server, you will get the same IP each time. (Available on Android, Windows, iOS, macOS).

    [Image: 5-Multihop.gif]
  • Multi-Hop servers

    Surfshark VPN with it's MultiHop™ allows users to connect via multiple countries at once to take ID protection & footprint masking to a whole other level. Your connection will hop from one server to another, bringing you an extra layer of protection. MultiHop™ is a feature that allows you to route your traffic through several servers at once to take your online security to a whole new level. (Available on Android, Windows, iOS, macOS).


  • Small Packets

    This feature is available on Android devices only. Whatever you do online, your data is being divided into packets (chunks of information) to send it smoothly. Each packet contains a part of the information that you want to send or receive.  By turning on Small Packets, you will reduce the size of each transmitted packet, which may improve the connection speed and stability. (Available on Android).

  • Surfshark One

    Surfshark One is a complete subscription package, including Surfshark VPN, Surfshark Alert, Surfshark Search, and the all-new Surfshark Antivirus!

    [Image: 17-Surshark-ONE.gif]

    The Surfshark One plan gives you all the same VPN features, and adds Avira-powered antivirus (Surfshark Antivirus), data breach monitoring (Surfshark Alert) and privacy-friendly internet search (Surfshark Search). The Surfshark Antivirus is currently available for Android, Windows, and macOS users, but in the near future, we might expand the availability of the feature to other operating systems as well. The antivirus supports on-demand scans, for instance, but doesn't have any real-time protection, so it's not a substitute for a full antivirus app.


  • Introducing "Incogni"

    Deleting your data from online databases for you. Incogni contacts data brokers on your behalf with requests to delete the data they have on you, helping you escape the clutches of online marketing.

Surfshark offers abundant VPN servers from different countries, so you can have more options when you do web surfing.
With Surfshark MultiHop, you can access websites safely, freely and anonymously,which are restricted by your ISP.
What's more, Surfshark is high-speed, unlike other VPNs that limit internet speeds. You can access any network at normal speed.
Based on these, I want to win a Surfshark VPN license.
