Surfshark Windows VPN features
We don’t monitor, track, or store what you do online. Your privacy always remains a priority.
Connect all your devices through one account, and if you want, you can even use them all at once!
All of our servers have at least 1Gbps port connected. Basically, this means the speed is really fast! Try out different servers and see which one gives you the best speed.
Some specific websites and apps will only work with your real IP address. You can either route these apps/IPs via a VPN or let them bypass your VPN.
Kill Switch is an automatic safety net that disconnects you from the internet. This will make sure your sensitive data doesn’t get leaked.
Our 100% diskless infrastructure means improved privacy. We only store minimal and essential information, but even that information is removed automatically once the server is turned off.
How to get a free VPN for PC?
First things first, don’t. Privacy protection tools aren’t regular everyday apps. Setting up servers, encryption, ensuring unbreachable privacy takes a lot of resources.
Free VPNs that don’t charge you for the product also need to make a living. How? Some offer limited free plans before asking users to buy an actual VPN plan. While others may sell their users’ data to third parties and stuff the app with intrusive, unskippable ads. It’s up to you whether you want to trust this kind of product with your personal information and online privacy.
Does Windows 10 have a VPN?
Yes, Windows 10 has a built-in VPN client that allows you to set up a VPN server manually. However, to use a manually set up VPN, you’ll still need to get a VPN service (e.g., Surfshark) because they have configurations needed for the setup, like service credentials.
Should I always use a VPN?
Whether you should use a VPN all the time depends on your personal needs. We definitely recommend that you should always leave your VPN on if these key points apply to your daily life. Some VPNs, like Surfshark, even have an ad blocker feature that makes your cyberspace cleaner and faster.
