Frequently asked questions

Is it legal to use a VPN on Android?

Yes, it’s legal in most of the world.

Is it safe to use a VPN on Android?

As long as you stay away from free VPNs and do your research, you’re good!

Does Surfshark VPN work on Android TVs?

Yes - you can find it on Google Play store. Please note that it’s not compatible with an Ethernet cable connection on Android TVs/boxes running Android 9.

Can a VPN increase my mobile internet speed?

While it won’t give you more bandwidth than your service provider, Surfshark can increase your internet speed by blockings ads, therefore using less data. If your provider slows down your internet when, for example, you watch Youtube on your Android, then a VPN will definitely help you enjoy your favorite channels in HD and with no buffering, too.

Does a VPN make me untraceable?

While you cannot be 100% anonymous if you use the internet at all, a reliable VPN does make you very, very hard to trace.
