What experts have to say about Surfshark

“I recommend Surfshark for its unlimited device support, its blazing speeds, and its rich suite of security and privacy features.”

“Budget VPNs don't have to be feature-free, and Surfshark is the proof - it's absolutely stuffed with advanced functionality, yet is half the price of many competitors.”

“Surfshark has numerous additional privacy features and takes the unusual move of placing no limits on the number of devices that can use a single account, making it an excellent value.”

For the best speed and stable connection - connect to the nearest US server

If you don’t need to connect to any specific location – pick the closest VPN server. This will ensure you get the best connection speeds. 

Long distances between your device and the server are one of the most common causes of poor VPN connection quality. So if you’re located in California – a server in LA is your best bet!

Close distances also improve connection speeds when connecting cross-continent. For example, if you’re in Germany and you wish to connect to a US server, choose the city that’s geographically closest to Germany. Simple as that. Instead of an LA server, connect to Boston!

Unlimited bandwidth for secure streaming

Want to stay secure and protected while streaming but are worried that a VPN will slow you down? Don’t! Surfshark has fast servers and unlimited bandwidth, so you can stream your favorite shows and movies worry-free.

That being said, Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the Terms of Service of streaming service providers.

Why use a VPN in the USA

Protect your online privacy

Data-driven companies use your data to make money without your knowledge. Enjoy true net neutrality with a VPN every day, and protect your privacy.

Secure your browsing

A VPN encrypts (makes unreadable) your entire internet traffic. Surfshark uses the AES-256 bit encryption together with some of the top-tier VPN protocols.

Browse throttle-free

Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) may throttle your internet speed when you watch YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or download files. With a VPN your ISP can’t see what you do, so you’re safe from throttling!

Unlimited streaming bandwidth

Want to stream your favorite show and remain secure? With Surfshark you can. Get unlimited VPN bandwidth and maintain your privacy when streaming content!

A VPN service with features you'll love

Mask your real IP address

When you connect to your VPN in the US, you get a United States IP address that's different from your real one. This greatly improves your privacy by masking your virtual location and online identity.

Connect multiple devices to one account

You can use your Surfshark account across multiple devices and do it simultaneously. This means that you can also share the account with family members or friends.

Available on all platforms

Install Surfshark with ease on all popular devices and platforms: iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, Linux, Chrome, Firefox, FireTV, Apple TV, and more. You can also secure your router with Surfshark. This way, a VPN will protect your home devices that connect to the internet through the router.

Enjoy full digital privacy with a no-logs policy

Our privacy policy and a no-logs policy go hand in hand. Your browsing sessions are kept completely private so that only you know where you've been on the internet.

How do I get a US VPN?

  • Step 1. Choose a VPN service (e.g., Surfshark).
  • Step 2. Create an account by going to their website.
  • Step 3. Download an app for your device(s).
  • Step 4. Install the app, just like any other program.
  • Step 5. Log in and connect to any server in the US (Surfshark allows you to choose from 23+ US cities).

Do I need a VPN in the USA?

Yes. By routing your internet traffic through a VPN server, the VPN allows you to hide your IP address, stream safely without buffering, avoid ISP throttling, and browse privately online.

But some VPNs are free, why would I pay for one?

It’s a common misconception that free VPNs exist. There is no free service. Virtual Private Networks cost money to maintain.

A “free VPN” and a paid VPN service both have servers and staff. The only question is – where do they get their funding from? Paid VPNs charge you money to offer you the best quality possible. Free VPNs usually either collect and sell your information or bombard you with intrusive ads.

Can you use a VPN in the USA?

Yes, you can freely use a VPN in the USA without being restricted by the government or your internet service provider.

Is using a VPN legal in the USA?

Yes, it’s currently legal to use a VPN in the USA as long as you don’t use it for illegal activities.

In general, VPN legality varies depending on the country you’re in.
