What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • IP address logging: Despite being a “no-logs” VPN, Surfshark recorded our IP address whenever we connected to its service. It encrypted the information, though, and deleted it 15 minutes after each session.
  • 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.

Bottom Line

Surfshark’s versatility allowed us to access the web while enjoying the peace of mind knowing that others can’t track us. It’s both secure and fast. With its many VPN protocol options, we know we can use Surfshark and still do everything we normally do online, and so can you.
