Why use a VPN in Russia?

Avoid the Russian VPN ban and stay private

After the famous Russia VPN ban, having a VPN in Russia is even more necessary. The government attempted to make lead providers participate in censorship. In our opinion, that’s unacceptable.

Access social media and blocked websites

Access anything blocked, including sites like LinkedIn and apps like Telegram. Enjoy the internet as it's intended - open and free.

Fast local servers for optimal speed

With our quality Russian VPN servers, you can stream local Kinopoisk, Ivi, Vesti, Rutube and more with speed and privacy.

Russia VPN questions and answers

Is using a VPN legal in Russia?

In Russia, there are no laws that directly ban the use of all VPNs. However, there is a list of “government-approved” VPNs that are most likely ready to give out any information that the government wants.

How do I get a Russian VPN?

Sign up to Surfshark, pick a plan, download the app for your devices, and you’re ready to go! All Surfshark VPN plans include unlimited devices plus a free ad-blocker.

Are free VPNs safe?

Most of the time they are not safe.

The exceptions would be very limited free plans offered by a few legitimate companies.

However, the completely free VPNs have to pay for their infrastructure and hire people. If you’re not paying for the service, then it’s very likely that they are using your data for profit.

Plus, it’s unlikely that they have high security standards and they may use outdated practices that can leave you vulnerable. 

A Russian VPN you can rely on

Unblock sites

Throughout the years, a number of different sites have been blocked in Russia. These include religious as well as social media sites or apps like Telegram. To enjoy true internet freedom, you've got to use a Russia VPN. It will allow you to enjoy any blocked site.

Stay private with a no-logs policy

Surfshark has a strict no-logs policy. That means when you're using a Russia VPN, all of your browsing activity is private and only known by you. Plus, nobody (even a government) cannot ask for data that simply does not exist.

Mask your IP address

If you use your local ISP to browse the web, it leaves your IP address visible to the public. A Russia VPN masks your IP and ensures that no one has access to your internet connection and browsing activity.
