Experience great connection speeds

People often assume that a VPN slows down the internet. There is some truth in that, that’s why it’s best to choose high-quality, premium VPN providers that invest in the product’s infrastructure.

With Surfshark, you get more bandwidth for high-demand servers (e.g., the UK or the US). It allows for our VPN to run fast despite a big server load.

RAM-only servers for extra privacy and security

Surfshark became one of the first VPNs to upgrade to RAM-only servers. By making the infrastructure 100% diskless, we’ve improved the privacy and security of the Surfshark VPN.

What does that mean for you? It means that the information that would usually be on the hard drive is removed automatically once the server is turned off.

Frequently asked questions

Do you need a VPN on Mac?

While Apple prioritizes the privacy and security of their operating system, everyone’s at risk on the internet. The computer you have doesn’t determine the threats you might come across while browsing. Apple knows that; that’s why they support VPNs on their devices.

With a VPN, you can surf the internet in private, secure your data so third parties cannot get to it, and access geo-blocked websites. VPNs also block trackers and invasive advertising, allowing you to enjoy cleaner digital space.

There are a lot more benefits that VPNs can offer, and it’s no surprise that this tool has become essential for many internet users.

Can I leave my VPN on all the time?

Yes, it’s completely fine to leave your VPN on all the time. In fact, we encourage it because not only will you always remain private, you also won’t have to manually turn it on and off every time. 

And of course, no extra charges apply because of it.

Is using a VPN on Mac safe?

Yes, using a VPN on your macOS device is entirely safe as long as you use a premium product. Free VPNs are more likely to collect and sell your data, they’re slow and full of ads. Free VPNs also offer weaker encryption, which defeats the whole purpose of a VPN. There is also the risk of malware, especially if you get your VPN from somewhere else other than the official Apple’s App Store.
