Surfshark plans to roll out its Nexus network, which connects all servers together, allowing users to route their connections through multiple servers. With Dynamic MultiHop, IP Randomizer, and IP Rotator functions, the Nexus network provides additional layers of protection for users with critical privacy needs.
Security and Privacy:
Surfshark claims to have a strict no-logging policy and has undergone a security audit by Cure53, which declared its security to be “solid.” Surfshark plans to release a new security audit by the end of the year.
Speed and Server Network:
While Surfshark consistently ranks as one of the fastest VPNs, some speed inconsistencies were observed in certain locations during tests. Surfshark continues to expand its server network, currently offering over 3,200 servers in 99 countries, which may improve speed consistency.
Surfshark successfully unblocks Netflix and Amazon Prime Video but may face difficulties accessing Disney Plus. Testing various servers can help gain access to Disney Plus content.
Surfshark offers affordable introductory prices that increase after the first billing cycle. The yearly plan starts at $48 for the first year and then $60 for subsequent years. The two-year plan costs $60 upfront for the initial two years and $60 per year thereafter. The monthly plan remains at $13 per month. A 30-day money-back guarantee is offered if customers are unsatisfied.
