SurfShark is the Best VPN for MacOS and iOS Users

I used the 7-day free trial to test Surfshark on my MacOS Ventura Macbook Pro, as well as my iPhone and iPad. The experience was nothing short of seamless!

Many other VPN services draw customers in with certain features or guarantees, and though they *support* MacOS and iOS, the actual functionality of the app and its integration can leave MUCH to be desired. One that I used disconnected periodically without any notice, which left me open to sending private information over an unprotected connection without even realizing!

With SurfShark, it connects and STAYS CONNECTED no matter what, so there is no chance of accidentally revealing private information. I love that you can set it to change IP addresses on a certain interval. The multihop feature is unique and lets you put an entry VPN location, multiple VPN 'hops' and finally an exit VPN between you and your data's destination. You can literally send your data across 10 different countries before it exits at another VPN IP and proceeds to its destination, for ultimate security. Both the MacOS and iOS apps work identically, with identical features.

In short, Surfshark is the most MacOS and iOS friendly VPN I've ever used, and offers everything one could want, with none of the bloat that is so common in other VPN software.

I'd buy a lifetime membership if they offered one!

What's the point

Looking to have more privacy in my browsing and be more protected on public networks I got a VPN. I did my research and found surfshark to be the best value VPN by numerous sources. Now that I have it I wonder what the point is- the connection is spotty at best, in fact I have to disconnect my VPN daily to load websites and if I turn it back on the website freezes again. Additionally netflix can now detect when a VPN is running and sometimes does not allow playback while your VPN is up, yet another scenario you have to disable the VPN and lose any protections you might actually get from it. Also the VPN takes up extra battery life and for some reason some days it seems like it is transferring a lot more data than it should be which really drains the battery.

What you want in a VPN is to not notice it or think about it ever while it protects your online privacy and security however this has not been my experience with Surfshark.

I am left wondering what the point is if I have to turn off the VPN to access websites daily due to connectivity issues or websites that can detect VPNs. Even on a good day I often have to disconnect and reconnect to the VPN multiple times because my connection has stalled. On top of this some days it causes me to get 25% less battery life because Surfshark is mysteriously transferring a lot of data.

Started Great, Got Better

I've been using SurfShark since its initial release in 2018. It can be hard to find a VPN that is truly secure, hosted in a location without monitoring agreements with major world governments while still giving you the speed and flexibility necessary to do your daily work. When it was launch at the staggeringly low pricepoint it has become famous for, I honestly thought it would implode within a year just from operating costs.

Instead, SurfShark has gone from an incredible value (as in, I legitimately didn't believe it at first!) to a reliable, stellar, top performing VPN that I happily use as my daily driver and will likely be loyal to for life. If you've been thinking of switching from another Big Name VPN (especially one of the ones that bans torrenting, streaming or gaming!) to SurfShark, I absolutely recommend it.
