In addition to securing your Internet connection with its VPN service, Surfshark can now protect your devices from online threats, as the company has launched a new cybersecurity package that also contains antivirus software.

Surfshark Antivirus is included as part of the company’s new Surfshark One cybersecurity package. However, along with its VPN and new antivirus software, the package also includes a data leak detection system called Surfshark Alert and a private search tool called Surfshark Search.

Surfshark CEO Vytautas Kaziukonis explained in a press release that the company has always wanted to provide its customers with other security solutions in addition to its VPN service, saying:

“Most cybersecurity solutions available on the market tend to be overly complicated. That’s why Surfshark works to humanize digital security and make it hassle-free from a user perspective. We’ve always wanted to offer something more than a VPN. Naturally, antivirus extends the reach of user security beyond online protection to protect people’s devices. At the same time, the Surfshark One package is presented as a comprehensive package that includes all four solutions in a single application. ”

Surfshark Antivirus provides users with protection of the device against malware, viruses and intrusive applications that can run without permission on their Android smartphones and computers.

Surfshark antivirus software also includes complete and fast virus scanning options, as well as the ability to exclude certain files or folders from scanning. At the same time, Surfshark Antivirus, which is currently available for Android and Windows, provides real-time protection when opening files or using and installing applications.

To help its users stay safe online, Surfshark offers its new Surfshark One package for just $ 1.49 more each month to existing Surfshark VPN subscribers, regardless of when their accounts were created. However, users who already have Surfshark Search and Surfshark Alert can add company antivirus to their subscriptions for a third of the package price, only $ 0.49 a month.

Now that Surfshark has launched its own antivirus and a new set of cybersecurity tools, it would come as no surprise that the company has also decided to launch its own password manager or even a privacy-focused browser in the future.
