Frequently asked questions
What is antivirus?
Antivirus is a digital security tool that protects your device from viruses and malware (malicious software).

Do I need antivirus for my smartphone?
Generally, if you’re downloading and installing files manually or using an Android, you should always use an antivirus on your smartphone.
iOS phones are a bit different since their apps are very strictly regulated by Apple.
Can I get Surfshark antivirus as a standalone?
Currently - no. At the moment, Surfshark Antivirus only comes in the Surfshark One bundle together with a VPN, Alert, and Search.
What is the best protection against viruses?
The best protection against viruses is a combination of antivirus and awareness. In other words, not entering infected websites or downloading infected files is the best way to prevent viruses. However, threats still manage to slip by a lot of the time, and that’s where an antivirus comes in.
Is there a 100% free antivirus?
Some antivirus software offers basic protection for free but will harbor a lot of their benefits behind paywalls like real-time and zero-day threat protection.
Is it worth paying for virus protection?
Yes, because you’ll always get better security from paid antivirus services compared to free ones.
Do you still need an antivirus?
Now more than ever. New viruses and malware are released daily, and they’re getting smarter every time.
Luckily, so are we.
That’s why we implement solutions like our Surfshark Cloud Protect to catch those viruses before they even get the chance to harm you.
How do viruses infect my device?
There are many ways viruses can infect your device. Most commonly, malware can infect you through user-based actions such as downloading and installing cracked or pirated files, browsing infected websites, opening email attachments, and so on.
Even if you think you can avoid these things, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Get an antivirus!
What are the main types of computer viruses?
The most common types of viruses are:
- Computer viruses. Designed to disrupt the activities of the device.
- Spyware. Designed to spy on users’ activities.
- Trojan horse. Disguised to look like legitimate software.
- Bot. Designed to perform a specific operation continuously and automatically.
- Bug. A flaw in programming that malicious actors can exploit.
- Rootkit. Used to grant unauthorized access to systems.
- Worm. Duplicates itself to spread to other computers.
- Adware. Automatically delivers annoying advertisements.
- Ransomware. Locks away the system or data unless a ransom is paid.
Does a VPN protect you from viruses?
It depends. In some cases, a VPN can prevent you from getting viruses with features like CleanWeb.
However, once you have the virus inside of your device, a VPN can’t do much. That’s why it’s best to have it running together with an antivirus!
