The sun is back in our lives and good news keeps piling up (kids are back to school, cough cough). And today, we have more good news with Surfshark VPN offering a special promotion for the French Days: 83% off + 3 months free. The promo is valid from April 21 to May 2.
I have been recommending this VPN since 2020 and I am still very happy with it. Not only is it affordable, but it also has all the common features and even pioneers in some (like Surfshark Nexus). Moreover, the number of devices you can connect to it is unlimited, making it suitable for personal, professional, and family needs!
In terms of functionality, Surfshark offers a complete set of features, including:
- Encrypted browsing for increased privacy (using AES-256 and IKEv2/IPsec combo with OpenVPN option, WireGuard, and more).
- Automatic IP address change.
- Ability to access content blocked in your country.
- DNS leak protection.
- Kill switch button.
- Split tunneling.
- Dynamic MultiHop.
- GPS-Spoofing for Android.
- Access to Netflix, Spotify, and other country-specific catalogs.
- Stealth mode, which hides VPN usage from your ISP.
- Whitelisting certain sites or applications (such as banks, for example).
- No logs policy.
Note that their policy of non-retention of logs has been recently audited successfully by Deloitte, one of the four largest audit companies, which shows their seriousness about it. In India, a law was passed last year requiring VPNs with servers in the country to retain users’ personal data for five years. However, instead of compromising users’ safety, they chose to close their servers on-site.
Their server park comprises more than 3200 machines distributed across over 100 countries. These machines have recently upgraded their throughput from 1 Gbps per port to 10 Gbps, making its use almost invisible in terms of display time, etc.
Surfshark offers the option of a dedicated IP, which means that you can use a static IP that is unique to you and does not change over time. This can be useful if certain services or tools only work with a fixed IP that has been whitelisted, and it can also reduce the number of captchas that you encounter on sites that use them. Furthermore, having the same IP with all your devices can prevent blocked IPs due to other users of the service. Currently, this option is only available for Android users.
In addition, Surfshark provides a complete “all-in-one” toolbox, which includes an antivirus (Surfshark Antivirus), an alert system (Surfshark Alert), a search engine (Surfshark Search), and Incogni, which removes your personal information from the web. They also block the display of ads directly at the DNS level with Cleanweb. Each of these tools is continuously improved over time to become more complete.
Recently, Surfshark added a protection feature dedicated to cameras in their antivirus tool. This feature prevents unwanted applications from taking control of your camera at any time, ensuring that your privacy is not compromised. This is particularly important given the risk of camfecting, where malicious individuals take control of a machine remotely and record the activity of the owner.
Surfshark supports all platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV, and the most commonly used browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Edge.
It’s the perfect opportunity to finally get that VPN you’ve been needing for months or even years, especially since Surfshark offers a two-year plan for less than 60€ (excluding VAT). Plus, if you plan to travel abroad soon (with summer and holidays approaching), purchasing Surfshark can save you money on ticket purchases and accommodations by testing different countries.
Surfshark has been providing high-quality service for a long time and has received numerous awards, such as being voted the VPN with the best value for money in 2022 by CNET and winning the award for Best VPN during the Cybersecurity Breakthrough 2022. It also scores an impressive 4.5/5 on Trustpilot, based on nearly 19,000 reviews. If you’re still unsure, Surfshark offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, so there’s no risk of disappointment.
