What is Surfshark One?

Surfshark has been a leader in the VPN industry for a few years now, but it has recently launched Surfshark One, which is an add-on for Surfshark customers.

Essentially, Surfshark One seeks to offer all – or, at least, most – of the essential privacy and cybersecurity tools in one place. It includes:

  • VPN: Perfect for keeping your activity private online, and for accessing censored and geo-blocked content.
  • Antivirus: Protection from harmful files downloaded from the internet, like malware and viruses. Can also scan your devices for existing threats.
  • Search: Private and organic search engine which uses no ads, no trackers, and keeps no logs. 
  • Alert: Detects information breaches across the web and alerts you if your data has been compromised, including emails and credit cards.

At just $1.49 a month without any discount, Surfshark One is already a very affordable alternative to established antivirus providers. However, as a freebie, it's a no-brainer. 

While antivirus is very much the star of One's package, the other three features are appealing in their own rights – and remember, Surfshark will likely be adding features to One over time, so it should only become more powerful.

Why is this Surfshark deal so good?

While Surfshark certainly is cheap, it doesn't sacrifice usability and privacy features like many other cut-price VPNs. In our independent testing, only premium providers ExpressVPN and NordVPN scored higher overall.

Beyond the Surfshark One bundle and very appealing price, one aspect we really like about Surfshark are its well-designed apps. No matter what device you're using they share a common design language, meaning it's easy to get up and running, and once you've used one, you've used them all.

If you want the absolute best-of-the-best, we'd point you towards ExpressVPN, but at $6.67 a month it's a fair bit more expensive. NordVPN is a little more affordable, but at $3.71 a month it's still pricier.

So, if you're after the best-value option on the market – even better with those additional two months and Surfshark One thrown in – Surfshark's your best bet.

    This use to be a decent vpn solution! I know as I have used it for 4+ years.However in the last year their Dev team has not only turned it into bloatware by adding so much extra junk that even if you chose to not use "AV Service" it installs anyway and is always running. They have even removed the ability to close the application when not being used. Thats right it cant even be closed, short of opening services and stopping its service then opening task manager an ending task on it. It's easier and faster to just uninstall/reinstall it however since these changes
    "bloatware" Microsoft views it as untrustworthy software and Windows Defender will quarantine it during the install making it more of a painto use as you then have to go setup a security exception for the install. They have turned a once decent application to a complete and utter nightmare! Pretty sad when devs turn something that was once usable into garbage!
