Embrace the potential of a Windows VPN app
Some specific websites and apps will only work with your actual IP address. Or sometimes, you just want some apps to skip Virtual Private Network protection. Either way, with Surfshark VPN’s Bypasser (Split Tunneling) feature on, you can be the lord of your internet connection domain.
What if your VPN connection 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 connection fails.
Life would be unbearable without having an ad-blocker on. Coincidentally, Surfshark VPN has this nifty feature called “CleanWeb,” which blocks malicious ads and trackers. That’s building up another layer of defense against parasitic internet marketing!
Ensure peak connection speeds with your own Speed test
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.
Save your eyes with dark mode
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 unblock the website for your fancy.
For added security, why not connect via two VPN servers? This makes it a lot harder to track you online, even using very smart methods. And in some cases, it might even improve your VPN speed by routing your traffic via faster network connections.
A VPN for PC with the fastest servers
Surfshark maintains 3200+ servers in 65 countries around the world. This ensures that servers are never overcrowded, and allows you to connect to a server near your country for the best speed.
RAM-only VPN servers
Our strict no-logs policy means that we don’t collect your personal data. But if someone tried to seize that information 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!
1Gbps server ports
Each of our high-speed servers has at least a single 1Gbps port. This allows for good bandwidth output on all of them. That’s why your connection speed will always be top-notch with Surfshark.
What is a good free VPN for a PC?
Trick question! There is no good free VPN. 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.
How to share a VPN connection from Android to PC

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 to stay secure. At that point, it’s easier to just use that service’s app.
