Embrace all the power the Windows app can offer
Some specific websites and apps will only work with your actual IP address. Or sometimes, you just want some apps to skip VPN protection. Either way, with Surfshark VPN’s Bypasser feature on, you can be the lord of your internet connection domain.
What happens if, say, there’s some nonsense happening with your connection or your PC’s drivers, and your VPN protection drops off? Well, then you might be surfing without any safeguards - or being aware that it’s happening. To avoid that, the Kill Switch is an automatic safety net feature - available on the VPN app for Windows - that disconnects you from the internet if the VPN protection collapses.
Life would be unbearable without having an ad-blocker on. Coincidentally, Surfshark VPN has this nifty feature called “CleanWeb,” which blocks ads and trackers. That’s building up another layer of defense against parasitic internet marketing!
Worried about the speed a server you want to use can offer? The Windows app has a baked-in speed-test utility that will analyze the connection to any Surfshark servers you can use. That way, you can always choose the best speed.
A small but necessary feature of the Windows app is the dark mode. Only vaguely related to the Dark Side, it cuts down on the number of photons searing your retinas as you’re looking for the one server that would unlock that obscure Netflix show.
For added security, why not connect via two VPN servers? This makes it a lot harder to track you online, even with very smart methods. And in some cases, it might even improve your VPN speed by routing your traffic via faster network connections.

Disclaimer: Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in ways that would potentially violate the Terms of Service of streaming service providers.
All of the servers, all of the time
Surfshark maintains 3200+ servers in 65 countries around the world. This ensures that you’re bound to find a server in the country you need, as well as being able to connect to a server near your country for the best speed.
Our strict no-logs policy means that our servers maintain only as much data as is needed to handle your connection. But if someone tried to seize that data by taking the server itself, all of it would be gone the second a server is disconnected from the power supply. That’s the beauty of RAM-only!
The physical infrastructure contributes a great deal to determining whether a server is fast or not. Each of our servers has at least a single 1Gbps port. This allows for good bandwidth output on all of them. An approved connection makes it a lot harder for a server to slow down due to many users connecting on it.
What is a good free VPN for a PC?
Trick question! Free VPN services are essentially unsafe, mostly because being free raises questions about their funding and their budgets for research and maintenance. In other words, a free VPN provider is never good. Read a deeper dive into the subject in our dedicated article on free and paid VPNs..
Are VPNs safe for PCs?
A good VPN service is as safe on a PC as it is on any other platform – which is very safe:
- We don’t run ads or sell your data to advertisers
- Your connection is encrypted with practically uncrackable AES-256 encryption
- We don’t maintain logs of your VPN use
- We protect your data and internet traffic from your internet service provider and online trackers.

Is VPN use illegal?
There are around a dozen countries around the world that restrict or ban VPN use. It’s very much OK to use a virtual private network everywhere else. Of course, if you choose to do illegal activities while using a VPN, those activities will still be illegal.
Does Windows 10 have a built-in VPN?
Yes, Windows 10 has a built-in VPN. However, it is less convenient and less functional than VPN software. It’s best used to connect to the network at your work. But if you want to have access to a variety of servers around the world, you still need to subscribe to a service that maintains those servers. At that point, it’s easier to just use that service’s app.
