No-frills app for Windows declares a different approach to privacy

A fast-growing privacy protection startup Surfshark has launched an easy to use virtual private network (VPN) application for Windows OS. With its intuitive user interface, the lightweight app aims to make privacy protection accessible for everyone as all its premium features come enabled by default.

Surfshark Windows app runs with an acknowledged OpenVPN security protocol, valued for its security and performance by many users worldwide. Also, it is powered by robust AES-256-GCM encryption with inbuilt authentication which makes encryption process much faster than using a widespread AES-256-CBC cipher.

‘With Surfshark we are paving the highway to advanced privacy for everyone. Our "one button for all" approach puts the user at the nucleus of the product. From the outside, this makes privacy protection and personal data security feel as seamless as possible, while we are taking care of all the complexities inside', says Magnus Steinberg, Surfshark's Chief Technology Officer.

As an additional identity protection measure, the app has an inbuilt 'kill switch' in case VPN connection drops. All its other features such as IP address masking, Zero-Knowledge DNS, IPv6 leak and WebRTC protection are enabled by default.

‘Surfshark stands out for its speed, forward-thinking security, and accessibility. Also, it is the only VPN which allows truly unlimited simultaneous connections. This means that one Surfshark subscription can be used to protect all devices of one's family, no matter how extensive that is', adds Magnus Steinberg.

All the internet traffic sent to and from any devices using Surfshark is strongly encrypted and protected from tracking or surveillance. The ever-expanding location selection list allows users to choose from hundreds of servers in 32 different countries, including the United States, Russia, Hong Kong, Germany, Israel, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, and others.

Currently, Surfshark offers one of the best quality/price ratios in the VPN market. Also, the service provides 24/7 customer support and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
