Blog post: Surfshark upgrades privacy protection beyond a VPN - Surfshark

We're happy to announce our plans to elevate privacy protection beyond the ordinary VPN functionality. By mid-June 2019, we're set to launch two new products: HackLock™ ID protection, which will work as an automatic mechanism to detect traces of hacked personal information online, and a private search tool BlindSearch™.
  1. ID protection service HackLock™. In its first public version, HackLock™ will operate as a breach detection mechanism to alert Surfshark users about leaks of their private information such as email and passwords, prompting them to take the necessary security measures.
  2. Private search tool named BlindSearch™. It will enable its users to perform web search queries in complete privacy and will not collect any history. Also, there will be no ads in the search so the users will only see purely organic results.

Interesting: On the site it does say - 'On the launch day, both new tools will become available to new and existing Surfshark users in a bundled offer'... I wonder if that's an added charge? The last time I used SS (I have a licence) I kept the same IP, I really wish they would change that, & for me it's not the most stable VPN I have used, along with connection issues I have never had with AIR, Express & PerfectPrivacy for example - As for 'Blind Search' I really thought that's achievable anyway with little intuition.. Still interesting though.
