What We Like
- Netflix and torrenting access: We loved cozying up on the couch to stream TV and movies as the weather cooled down, and Surfshark even let us watch Netflix in other countries. This instantly expanded our entertainment options.
- Versatile and robust VPN connections: Surfshark offers a host of VPN protocols, from OpenVPN and WireGuard, to IKEv2 and IPSec.
- Unlimited simultaneous connections: We didn’t have to worry about the number of devices we connected to Surfshark at any given time.
What We Don't Like
- Static IP address: We received the same IP address every time we connected to Surfshark. This makes it easier for hackers to track us online.
- Based in the Netherlands: The Netherlands has privacy-friendly data retention laws, but it's under Nine Eyes jurisdiction, which means the government can compel Surfshark to share customer information when necessary.
