Surfshark launches Dedicated IP
June 2023 by Marc Jacob
Surfshark released a significant new feature for its VPN - Dedicated IP. Normally, when users connect to a VPN server, they get a shared IP address, which changes with each session and is also used by other users. The new feature provides users with an IP address that is uniquely theirs and is the same each browsing session. A dedicated IP is an ideal solution for accessing private servers or corporate remote access systems more securely.
The Dedicated IP feature is currently available on Android, Windows, iOS, and macOS. The solution is compatible with all VPN protocols, including WireGuard®.
Surfshark currently offers six Dedicated IP locations: US (New York, San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas), UK (London), Netherlands (Amsterdam). However, the number of available Dedicated IPs is limited, meaning that some locations may not always be available for purchase. More locations — Germany (Frankfurt), Japan (Tokyo), Hong Kong, Italy (Milan), South Africa (Johannesburg), Canada (Toronto), Australia (Sydney), and France (Paris) are coming soon, and Surfshark is working on bringing even more locations in the future.
To get a Dedicated IP, users should go to their Surfshark account, visit the new “Dedicated IP subsection” (located below the VPN section), and click “Upgrade”. Once payment is complete (the service costs 3.75 USD per month), users can choose one of the available locations. The new Dedicated IP will appear in the app’s menu in the locations section.
