I am a Surshark VPN subscriber with a valid account.
My old laptop died, and I need to download, install and reconnect to Surfshark on my new laptop.
I’m signed in, but not certain how to do this. Surshark recognizes my account, says I’m not protected, and the only option appears to be downloading the application to my phone, which I’m not interested in.
Any help at all with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Download the app to your new laptop. Then if you already have the SS app installed on any other device such as your streaming device, phone, other PC, or tablet. Then just open the app and go to your account and enter in the code that will be displayed.
Okay, here’s the deal. I logged into the Surfshark VPN application on my phone. I am presently connected (through my Google/Gmail).
However, when attempting to install the application on my new LAPTOP, Microsoft won’t allow me to do so. “For security and performance, Windows 10 in S mode runs Microsoft-verified app. To get this app, you’ll need to swith out of S mode.”
I have already updated the laptop to Windows 11, however. I don’t even think I have S Mode on the new machine.
I think you got the wrong update. You definately do not want win 11S.
Windows 11 in S mode is a version of Windows 11 that’s streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.
Here is the link you need with instruction on how to turn S-Mode off.
If you don’t already have this installed on your computer. This is a very useful app to have. I have a Inspiron 17 7706 2-in-1 and I use this app quite a bit. In fact, I had a faulty touchpad and contacted Dell via this app. After doing a few fixes with the tech online. They advised that a replacement touchpad was in order. Since my laptop was still under their one-year warranty. They actually sent out a tech to my home and he replaced the touchpad right then and there on my kitchen table!
Besides, the app offers an easy way to update and scan your laptop.
