What is NoBorders and how to use it?

The internet should be open to everyone. NoBorders is a feature that allows you to use Surfshark in restrictive regions successfully. Suppose your Surfshark app detects any kind of restrictions on your network. In that case, it automatically enables the NoBorders mode, which gives you a selected list of servers that perform the best under network restrictions.


Normally, NoBorders mode will turn on automatically if needed, but there is also an option to turn it on manually. 

Here is how to:



Turn on NoBorders on Windows


  1. Launch your Surfshark app and open the Settings tab.


  2. Open the Advanced tab.


  3. This is where you find the NoBorders mode. Click on the switch to turn NoBorders on/off.



Turn on NoBorders on Android


  1. Start your Surfshark app and go to Settings.


  2. Proceed to the Advanced tab.


  3. You will see the Protocol tab here. Tap on it and hold for 3 seconds. The NoBorders feature will appear below.


  4. You can now turn on NoBorders by pressing on the switch.



Turn on NoBorders on iOS


  1. Open your Surfshark app and go to Settings.


  2. At the bottom of the Settings page, you will find an option to turn NoBorders on or off.



Turn on NoBorders on macOS

  2. Move to the Advanced settings section. This is where you will find an option to turn NoBorders on or off.
