During the pandemic, most institutions and companies have been working from home. There are many secure platforms to use, but there are always some security issues with most of them. That’s why the use of VPNs has become the simplest and most secure way for most workers to get access to their systems. 

This increase in activity has, of course, raised the attention of many cyber crooks. In that regard, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS CISA) noted that we are likely to witness an increase in phishing emails cyber crooks trying to steal passwords and usernames.

One of their recommendations was ensuring that your VPN is always updated with the latest security configurations and security patches, which means enlisting the help of a trusted service has never been more important.

Luckily for you, Surfshark VPN exists, and it one of the most trusted services out there. The VPN has an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars from over 10,000 users of Android and iOS in their respective stores. You can access the web securely using Surfshark with a subscription that starts from US$38.99.

Surfshark has over 1,200 servers in more than 60 countries, and it offers private and fast web access from wherever you are. The VPN is cloaked with military-grade AES-256-GCM encryption and OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols.



With such features, you can be sure that no one will be able to track your online activities, so there is no way cybercriminals can get access to your sensitive information. Your IP address will always be hidden. What’s more, Surfshark has no login policy, so it never keeps tabs of what you will be doing online.

The anonymous surfing allows you to sidestep global geo-restrictions, which means you can access content that is region-locked or stream service subscriptions any time you want without speed blocks.

Additionally, the CPN has other helpful features such as CleanWeb that blocks trackers, ads, and other malware as you browse. Surfshark has torrent-friendly servers and a kill switch, which you can use if your VPN connection drops unexpectedly. 

Currently, you can get any of the Surfshark variety plans, and save up to 83% of what you would have used. The plans available are, one year at US$38.99, two years at US$69, and four years at US$99. Please note that the plans are subject to change.
