How to set up a VPN on Google Chrome?
Secure your Chrome browser and access the open internet
The Surfshark VPN proxy extension for Chrome does more than just increase your online privacy. It also opens the online world for you. It doesn’t matter if the blocks are imposed by the government, the internet service provider, your school, or your workplace. You can get past those blocks with a Chrome browser VPN proxy extension.
Hide your IP address
Websites can record what you do online by tracking your IP (Internet Protocol) address. This address leads back to you. Install a VPN Chrome extension to replace your real IP address with an IP from a VPN server.
Don’t worry about logs
A quality and paid VPN like Surfshark operates under a strict no-logs policy. It even maintains servers that would go blank if anyone tried to seize them. Plus, unlike free VPNs, a paid VPN allows unlimited bandwidth for all your devices.
Bypass local firewalls
When a school, dorm, workplace, or other similar internet supplier blocks your online activity, they use fairly simple methods. Using a Chrome VPN proxy extension helps you bypass them and many others.
Visit censored websites
Use Surfshark’s secure VPN to bypass restrictions and visit websites as normal — without regional limits. However, please be sure to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, as Surfshark cannot be used for any unlawful purposes.
We prohibit using Surfshark services for any unlawful purposes as it is against our Terms of Service. Please be sure to act in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of other service providers.

Say bye to cookies
With our Cookie pop-up blocker, you will never have to accept any cookies again. Forget consent requests or content-covering banners and access your favorite websites without interruptions.
Be alerted about website breaches
Turn on website safety warnings and be notified about any incidents and breaches of the pages you visit. Nothing is hidden from you as the safety warning pop-up shows the exact date and information hackers exposed during the breach.
Try to spot any drops in speed
The distance to the server impacts your speed. With Surfshark’s 3200+ servers (some with 10Gbps ports) in 100+ countries, one will always be nearby. You can also choose to connect to the fastest server automatically.
Surfshark VPN vs. free VPNs
There is no such thing as a free VPN. Any VPN is a service that needs money to operate. Free VPNs just get it through other means, like bombarding you with annoying ads or selling your data. Here’s why you should choose a premium VPN over a free one:
Premium VPNs have strict no-logs policies and less incentive to lie about it since they don’t need to sell user data to finance themselves.
Research and development cost money. Premium VPN developers have their subscription model provide a steady flow of funds for such projects.
Free VPNs often limit your speed or data to make you buy the premium version. A premium VPN doesn’t have such limits.
Keeping a secure and modern VPN network requires a lot of money, something that premium VPNs have due to the subscription model.
Thousands of servers
It’s not just about the number of servers. It’s also about how many different countries the servers are in. Premium VPNs like Surfshark have more servers in more locations.
The steady flow of money from subscriptions allows for improved server infrastructure and more servers to ease congestion.

Customer service is excellent with very knowledgeable and extremely courteous reps (Thanks Keanu!). This is in support of what I find to be an excellent product. I am very happy with Surfshark's drive to provide means for safe, reliable, and private internet navigation. Five stars is just but an appetizer.
I was ready to give up after struggling with Apple App store access while connected to Surfshark. But their support team truly went above&beyond to offer clear instructions and suggestions on steps to take. They provided fast, efficient response. Made me a customer for life!
Had a problem with the help of customer support they were very helpful and fast to help to get me started again.
