What is Alternative ID?

In this article, you will learn about the new Surfshark feature — Alternative ID.


With Alternative ID, you can create an alternative identity for you to use in the online world, without exposing your personal details, or real email.


When you really need to create an account on an unsecure website, you will most likely need to expose your email. That’s where Alternative ID comes into help. With Alt ID, you can generate an alternative persona (name, date of birth, address), create an alternative email, and link it to your real email. All of the login emails, 2FA, or verification emails will be forwarded to your inbox.


This way, your personal details or real email will never be exposed, securing your identity.


Congratulations, now you know about the new Alternative ID feature!
