A VPN is an extremely powerful tool for personal information security, but many users are still unaware of the benefits it can bring. The acronym, which stands for Virtual Private Network, allows data traffic securely and also allows access to an internal network of a company, even working from home, for example.

It is also often used by people to protect their privacy, as generally all data in a VPN is encrypted, and to access content that would otherwise be unavailable – because of geographical restrictions, for example.

While some people do not use a VPN in their daily web browsing because they simply are not aware of the benefits, others do not do it because of the prohibitive price tags that come along with some VPNs. This is not the cause with Surfshark, though, as this very well-priced VPN comes loaded with the features that any user might need on a regular basis.

Surfshark offers the regular country-based connection, with a list of over 50 countries and more than 800 servers in total to choose from. The connection to those servers is fast and reliable, with blocked sites being unblocked in a breeze. But this VPN offers several other cool features.

For starters, there is a powerful ad-blocker shipping by default, called CleanWeb. It gets rid of ads, trackers, malware and phishing attempts. Surfshark also allows the user to have complete control over what is and is not affected by the VPN, with a whitelisting feature that makes it easy to allow specific apps or websites to bypass the VPN.

Another interesting function is the Kill Switch, which is there to ensure your data is never unsecured. If the VPN connection fails, this Kill Switch disconnects your device from the Internet, thus making sure your data and traffic are not seen by anybody else, including your ISP.

And if you’re a Netflix junkie, just know that Surfshark is capable of unlocking it in regions in like the US, UK, Canada, Japan, France, Germany, and a whole lot more.

Surfshark is available for a wide array of devices, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Fire TV and even in the form of extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. If you go for the 24-month plan, you can get this VPN for as little as $1.99 per month. This is a very competitive price in the VPN industry, so be sure to grab your license and surf the web safely and privately.
