SurfSafeVPN Review – Virtually Reside In US and UK

Monday, April 21st, 2014

SurfSafeVPN is a privacy solution from a Georgia, US based company. The service was launched in 2011 by a team of professionals having years of experience in delivering enterprise level security solutions. This SurfSafeVPN Review will focus on the prominent features of the SurfSafeVPN service and help you to make a subscription decision.

Server Locations and Site Access

SurfSafeVPN has VPN gateways in United States and United Kingdom. While the customers who wish to access local content from Asia and Europe would be disappointed by the lack of server location options, the service is tailor made for those who wish to unblock premium content from America and Britain. In particular, the service allows you to access premium websites like Hulu, Demand 5, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Amazon Prime, NHL, USA Network, Pandora, Xfinity, ABC, Eurosport, iTV, HBO Go, MTV, Fox, CWTV, Vudu, Lovefilm, 4OD, CBS, MLB, NBC and Vevo from anywhere. And for those who are fed up of ISP and corporate level firewalls, the service offers an easy way to access popular sites like Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, YouTube and Skype from any country or network (even from China, Middle East and Latin America). Since the company permits unlimited server switching within its network, you can unlock both US and UK based content with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

SurfSafeVPN does not throttle speed or restrict bandwidth which means you can experience high level of performance for browsing, streaming, VOIP, gaming and downloading activities. The company’s servers are connected to Gigabit+ nodes which ensures that you will experience high speeds even during peak hours.

Privacy Settings

SurfSafeVPN delivers up to 1024 bit AES encryption through its service. The use of corporate grade encryption ensures that your credit card numbers, IP address, identity, social accounts and financial transactions can never be stolen or compromised even when you are connected to an extremely unsecure public Wi-Fi hotspot at a mall, airport, public park, coffee shop or library. In addition, the service is capable of protecting all types of online activities (browsing, IM, emailing, VOIP etc.) from surveillance, monitoring and hacking threats.

SurfSafeVPN does not collect personally identifiable data. However, the company does record connection details for maintaining its network in prime condition. The company does not reveal customer details to third parties unless it is compelled to do so by a court.

Supported Operating Systems

SurfSafeVPN is compatible with Windows, Mac, iPhones, iPads and, Android. The company offers a proprietary VPN client for all operating systems plus it is also possible to configure the service manually.

SurfSafeVPN offers another security solution Photoshield, which protects your personal photos and videos by stripping the location information from such files. Most modern Smartphones and tablets automatically append location information to the photos and videos captured through them. When you post your personal photos and videos to social networks, you can accidental leak your location information to thieves and stalkers. By removing location information from videos and photos, Photoshield ensures that your present location is not revealed to anybody.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through live chat, support tickets and email. The live chat facility is available from 10AM – 10PM EST on weekdays and 12PM – 8PM on Saturdays and Sundays. However, the ticket based support is available round the clock.

Pricing Options

SurfSafeVPN is available for $4.9/ month ($13.9/ quarter, $25.9/6 months and $49.9/year). Each VPN subscription includes the Photoshield feature as a bonus. While the company does not offer free trials, it does have a 7 day refund policy in place. Make sure to cancel your subscription well in advance if you are not happy with the service as some customers have complained that they were charged for the service even when they canceled the service on the 6th or 7th day.

Final Verdict

Overall, we were happy with the SurfSafeVPN service. While we agree that the company should add more server locations, the service deserves praise for its performance and security options. So if you are looking for an affordable VPN service that offers US and UK based IP addresses, don’t forget to check the VPN offers from SurfSafeVPN.
