If free VPNs are to be avoided, how can you try a premium VPN without putting your hand in your pocket? Surfshark lets you test its service for free for a month thanks to a trick.
CssTricks repeats it: you should be wary of free VPNs. Firstly, because their performance is poor, but above all because they do not guarantee any connection security. A shame for a VPN.
However, there is a way to benefit from a quality VPN like Surfshark’s for free. The value for money champion allows everyone to benefit from a free month. This while taking advantage of the money-back guarantee that the service applies. Here’s how to take advantage of it.
Surfshark: how to get a free month
Hold on tight. To try Surfshark for free, you must first subscribe to the service… and pay a subscription. The 24-month one is currently priced from 2.21 euros per month + 3 months free.
Indeed, Surfshark does not strictly speaking offer a free month, but rather a 30-day money-back guarantee. After subscribing, you have one full month to try the service, and withdraw in order to request a refund. Customer service generally grants it to you without asking too many questions.
How to benefit from it? Simply contact customer service within 30 days to request a refund of the subscription. You can do this from the chat integrated into the site or application, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The money is then transferred to the payment method used during subscription.
Please note, however, that only subscriptions purchased directly on the Surfshark website benefit from the money-back guarantee. This is not the case for purchases made from iTunes, the App Store, Amazon, or a gift card.
Why choose Surfshark VPN?
VPN services are legion in 2023. So, why turn to Surfshark, and not another? The shark service includes certain specificities that are specific to it and which set it apart from the competition.
