Surfshark VPN Overview
Founded, developed, and launched in 2018, SurfShark began as a browser extension before the pivot to other applications. SurfShark went on to make apps for Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and introduce their feature boosts. These boosts included: CleanWeb, Kill Switch, Multihop, and Bypasser. As a brand new company in 2018 with no previous established reputation, SurfShark went through an independent audit by German Cure53. This audit, on the browser extension only, revealed two low risk vulnerabilities. Cure53 states in their conclusions:
“Cure53 assessment of the Surfshark VPN extensions position the product in a very good light. Two members of the Cure53 team, who examined the scope in November 2018, can only conclude that the tested applications make a very robust impression and are not exposed to any issues, neither in the privacy nor in the more general security realms.”
It is impressive to see a brand-new company get such high praise from notable security firm. In 2019, SurfShark went onto release a free app Trust DNS and built-in GPS spoofing on their Android app. Following a solid year in 2020, the company released two-factor authentication, became a founding member of the VPN Trust Initiative (VPI), a membership in a host of other organizations, and moved to a 100% RAM-only server network.
