  1. DNS Leak Test

It’s not hard to guess that I’m not from Singapore. It’s nearby though!

  1. WebRTC Test

The test passed with flying colors! My real-time communication did not leak out my physical location. Not even close.

  1. Misc – Server Farm

They have over 1700 servers around the globe but unfortunately, not all are owned by Surfshark.

Here’s a screenshot from our chat. By the way, the support was awesome and prompt.

Here’s their full answer.

  1. Bonus
surfshark biggest deal offer bonus

I’m not saying that everyone will receive this deal.

But this is by far, the biggest discounted deal from Surfshark that I’d received.

Dropping the price to $1.79/mo for 24 months!


Make sure you check out your email and have a little patience during the 7-day free trial.

Once you actually receive the deal, act fast on it.

It’s a time-limited offer!

Still, $1.99/mo is a steal for a VPN that performed at this level.

If you do miss out on the deal.

No big fuss.

Final Word

There you have it, my full test report on Surfshark.

They score pretty fair although lack in the department of speed compares to ExpressVPN.
