Surfshark enjoys a reputation for being a cheap and powerful VPN. But is it as good as the reputation goes? In this…
We know how hard it is to choose a decent VPN service. That’s why we do VPN reviews of the well-known and new-coming VPNs. With them, you can decide whether a certain VPN fits your needs or not. Here’s how we review a VPN:
First of all, to check its developer for trustworthiness, we research the company and scandals around it if they exist. Then where the business is located, and what laws it follows. This helps us to define whether a company has a safe jurisdiction to have the zero-logs policy.
We determine what encryption protocols the VPN is using, and explain to you whether they are safe. With help of software and special services, we check the VPN app for having malware in it and possible IP and DNS leaks.
When reviewing a VPN’s pros and cons, we consider several things. First of all, the user interface and design. If the application looks good and it’s easy to understand how to use it, the VPN deserves a big plus from us. We often contact the support of the VPN to look at how responsive they are and how they would handle our issues. We also test connection speed and accessible servers in other countries. Support of torrent and Netflix, and, of course— the cost and other features are the things we scrutinize during the review.
Based on the research, pros, and cons we noted, we create a summary that points out our conclusion about the VPN. That’s how we do our VPN reviews.
