Why should we choose SurfEasy and not another VPN service?
SurfEasy VPN is a super high speed VPN service with a no-log policy, delivered by a company you can trust. SurfEasy provides unlimited bandwidth and supports torrent traffic, allowing you to protect your privacy and security across all of your important online activities.
We accumulated over 1,000 VPN servers in over a dozen countries, allowing you to bypass firewalls and access blocked content from anywhere in the world. The service also removes pesky ad tracking cookies from following you around the web.
What are the advantages for SurfEasy in being part of Opera Software?
SurfEasy is committed to deliver the highest quality VPN service. As part of Opera Software, we’re part of a global company that’s trusted by over 350 million users for more than 20 years.
How does your ad tracker blocking feature work?
By intercepting advertising cookies, SurfEasy Ad Tracker Blocking makes sure that your identity doesn’t get exposed. By doing so, you’re not giving away any of your personal information to companies trying to track and target you around the web with their advertisements. Our ad blocking functionality works right at the HTTP level, which allows for the best privacy protection against this threat.
How does SurfEasy now support torrenting?
As with all other VPN activities you can perform through our service, we don’t keep any logs or limit bandwidth when torrenting through SurfEasy. We even have dedicated torrent servers to ensure that torrent users can enjoy fast paced torrent download speeds. We work with OSL Networks in Ireland to ensure that we can keep up high standards for torrenting purposes.
How do your browser extensions work?
We offer browser extensions for Chrome and Opera. SurfEasy encrypts all internet traffic coming in and out of your browser to protect your online privacy and security, and to keep you safe from hackers and snoopers, no matter what you do. Our service also lets you change regions to unblock geo-restricted content.
What is the best way to use SurfEasy when accessing public Wi-Fi networks?
Wi-Fi hotspots are often unsecured, thus leaving you vulnerable to attacks from hackers and snoopers. SurfEasy protects your anonymity and privacy while using Wi-Fi hotspots regardless of where you connect from. When turning the VPN on, bank-grade encryption is used to keep your IP address and personal details hidden. This protects your location and keeps you untraceable online.
Which new stuff can we expect from SurfEasy in the near future?
SurfEasy is the most preferred VPN for Opera software. We just recently launched our browser extension for Opera, and we also came up with our iOS version. Both of them are completely free for the user. We are excited to launch Opera VPN for Android in the near future which will be a free solution as well. In the meantime, SurfEasy is continuing to improve the experience for its premium paid user base by continuing to add regions and getting more servers to continue to offer blazing fast speeds.
How do you see online privacy and internet freedom evolving?
People are seeking ways to take back the control of their online privacy, and access a free and open internet. We believe that tools such as VPNs will make it easier for people to achieve safety and privacy. Furthermore, services like SurfEasy VPN will make it easier to bypass firewalls that block access to your favorite websites and content.
