Looking for a free VPN? Did you know that their…



is slow



is limited



isn’t a priority



policy isn’t followed (keeps your data)



lack protection options like ‘’Kill Switch’’



aren’t optimized

But worst of all:

A free VPN collects your data and sells it to the highest bidder. So, the price you pay for a “free VPN” is your sensitive information falling into advertisers’ or, worse, hackers’ hands. Plus, a free VPN isn’t as fast and easy to use as a premium VPN.

Surfshark adheres to a strict no-log policy. So, try as they might, no one will be able to access your data while you browse the web at blazing speeds.


Will a VPN work on my Android TV?

Yes. Surfshark VPN, vetted by Google and available via the Google Play Store, is guaranteed to work with any up-to-date Android operating system. But if your Android version is older than Android 5 (Lollipop), you may not even see the Surfshark app on the store.

Is there anything you can do in this case? Yes, you can sideload the app – just read our guide on how to set up a VPN on an Android TV.

Do I need an Android TV VPN?

There are a few reasons why you might need an Android TV VPN.

Streaming video content uses a lot of internet bandwidth. That’s why internet service providers like to spy on your traffic and slow your connection down when you’re streaming videos (this also happens to online gaming and more). A VPN shields your data from your ISP, allowing you to watch what you want without slowing down your streaming speeds. 

Furthermore, streaming devices can be hacked. But when the VPN is shielding your connection, this becomes much harder to do.

Is an Android TV VPN legal?

Yes, there’s nothing illegal in using a VPN on Android platforms. Some countries like Russia or China restrict or heavily regulate VPN use, but it is not an issue in most of the world.

However, it’s safe to say that doing anything against the law with a VPN is still illegal.

Disclaimer: Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the law or the Terms of Service of other service providers.

How do I check if my VPN is on Android TV?

  1. Go to the VPN app and turn it on. Once connected, you should see a new IP address that the VPN has provided you with.
  2. Find out your IP:
    • Once you’re on the Android TV dashboard, go to settings (press on the ‘’cog’’ icon) and select ‘’Network and Internet’’;
    • Then, select the network you’re connected to, and a drop-down menu will appear with your IP address.
  1. Check if the IP addresses match. If your VPN app is showing you the same IP address as the one in the ‘’Network and Internet’’ settings, it means that your VPN is working.
