Why use a VPN in Austria
Avoid government monitoring
In 2019, the Austrian government started discussing plans to tie citizens' identification to their online persona. Protect your online privacy with a VPN connection and expand your internet freedom.
Browse without leaving a trace
Austrian defamation laws make whistle-blowing and reporting on systemic issues difficult. Encouraged not to act anonymously, many would like to stay private for different reasons. An Austrian VPN will mask your IP and blur your traffic, so your ISP won't be able to read it.
Keep your data safe at home and on public Wi-Fi networks
Austria offers excellent Wi-Fi availability, but when we connect to a public hotspot, we put ourselves at risk of being hacked. A VPN service like Surfshark blinds any prying eyes.
Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in ways that would potentially violate Terms of Service of other service providers.
Why use an Austrian VPN abroad
Travelling comes with its perks, but also drawbacks. Here are some reasons why connecting to an Austrian server will help you wherever you are.
Bypass restrictions across the internet
Use the internet with top-notch encryption
Choosing the right VPN service is simple. Free VPNs, for example, expose and exploit your online identity and activity and can sell it to third parties.
On the other hand, Surfshark’s market-leading AES-256-GCM encryption keeps everything you do only for your eyes. The internet stays public, while your information remains private.
An Austrian VPN you can rely on
One account, multiple devices
With just one Surfshark subscription you can connect unlimited devices to protect your family and friends. The best thing is everyone can use it at the same time.
Tons of servers in Austria & beyond
Choose from approximately 30 Austrian servers. The fastest server may depend on how far you are from it or the connection in general, but each will have a unique Austrian IP address. Also, find even more servers located around the world.

Are VPNs legal in Austria?
Austria has done little to constrain the freedoms of its internet users. Therefore, VPNs are legal to develop, buy, and use.
Is there internet censorship in Austria?
Austria ranks highly when it comes to internet freedom. The government is blocking websites that spread information and content that violate the law. This usually means shutting down neo-Nazi, Holocaust denial, and child pornography websites. Austria is also very serious about enforcing laws that concern hate speech.
However, in 2019, the government suggested a new plan to tie user IDs to their real IDs. The law would affect websites of over 100,000 users and require operators to hand out their users’ data linked to their nicknames. The government would be able to request this data in case of criminal investigations. Activists fear the government wants to silence government critics – not combat hate speech.
