Secure your browser
A VPN encrypts the traffic between your browser and the website. That way, if anyone (say, your internet service provider) tries to spy on your connection, they won’t get anything.
Your IP (Internet Protocol) address is logged when you go places online, leading back to you. Install a VPN on Chrome to replace your IP with the VPN server’s.
A quality VPN like Surfshark operates under a strict no-logs policy and even maintains servers that would go blank if anyone tried to seize them.

Open your access to online content
Your government might not like you reading foreign news sources. Your workplace or school would like you to not access YouTube on their Wi-Fi. However, a VPN extension for Chrome can overcome those blocks.
When a school, dorm, workplace, or other similar internet supplier blocks your access, they use fairly simple methods. A VPN can bypass them - and many others.
Some countries block access to regular websites like Facebook and Instagram. However, a VPN - even a Chrome VPN - can bypass the restrictions.
Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the Terms of Service of other service providers.
Enjoy the best VPN tech can offer
There are many VPN protocols out there, but the one everyone’s talking about right now is WireGuard. It’s fast, secure, sleek, and fits every occasion like a black t-shirt would.
A VPN protocol impacts your speed, but so does the distance to the server. With Surfshark’s 3200+ servers (1Gbps port or better) in 65+ countries, one will always be nearby.
A good VPN for Chrome offers more than a secure connection to one of many servers worldwide, but also features like the ad-blocking CleanWeb and privacy-ensuring WebRTC blocks!
