Ratings and Reviews
Works Mostly Well
After trying a few VPN services I chose to go with Surfshark because it works mostly well and cost is very reasonable, especially if you have multiple devices. I have ran into a couple of issues, some which just involve turning the VPN off, others that seem to be developer bugs. As for the bugs - 1) my desktop has a lot of trouble connecting to the nearest/fastest server, which can take a good 10 minutes after booting up; but after it connects it works well. It’s weird because my mobile devices and laptop connect super quickly. 2) it can kill your phone/tablet battery quickly - if an app needs to remain running in the background (which is the case with some trackers, ie., COVID trackers that your school/employer may require), it may be unable to send/receive data while VPN is on, which leads to the battery draining within 4 hours or less. Which leads to improvements that would be awesome - like allowing some apps to be exempt from VPN, since some retail, banking, and even game apps don’t work while VPN is running. I don’t know if iOS would allow for app exceptions, so maybe just having the ability to turn VPN off for x-hours or minutes might be nice, vs having to remember to turn it back on. Anyways, no major issues and Surfshark works mostly well!!

After 1 1/2 years of using surfshark….
Overall good VPN service. There are a couple of issues I had like using surfshark with a couple of routers that support VPN. XBOX & PlayStation as well as Roku devices I wish I could have connected those as well but has proven to be very difficult if not impossible. Minor bugs like being able to login from some of my other devices. When trying to login using the passwords given from surfshark the app will allow you to type in the password on certain browsers and sometimes the passwords don’t work at all. Also when using surfshark you have to be careful to remember to turn it off on cellular because I notice my iPhone and iPad Pro will go through data like crazy when I’m not even on my devices very much like overnight when I wake up my devices used up more data while I was asleep than when I was actually using them. So that’s something to look out for. On the plus side Speeds are fast compared to other providers and connection time is super fast. Whenever I checked my ip and dns, connection was 100% secure everytime. So surfshark is very secure once your able to setup all of your devices which can be a task. I’ve used 3 different name brand VPN providers and surfshark I put at the top of that list.

I hardly EVER give 5 stars
Surfshark is hands down the best VPN I have used. And I have used quite a bit. Hola, Betternet, Hotspot Shield, ExpressVPN, you name it. Not one of them comes close to Surfshark! The servers are speedy. Your privacy is real. I looked up my IP several times and I am most definitely in the country I selected.
And privacy is what you really want these days. And Surfshark gives you that. Customer service? Are you kidding me? They answer immediately in chat and are extremely helpful? I don’t think I have ever had this much help from a VPN company. When I asked questions in chat over at ExpressVPN all they wanted to do was sell me an extremely expensive subscription. Surfshark takes the time to help you, guide you through the process, even if you know next to nothing about WiFi, VPN’s or are not really tech savvy.
Hands down, Surfshark is the best VPN I have ever used. I stated as much above and I will stand by it. And it really is very affordable. It works every single day, every single time you connect. And they are constantly making it better and updating the app. If you have an issue, which has been rare for me, they are on top of it. Very helpful. Very friendly. Very knowledgeable. I will definitively continue being a subscriber.
