Selecting the right VPN for your personal usage, is a difficult job. It’s not just about anonymity, I.e. hiding your IP address alone, you also need to pick one which cares about the user’s privacy, such as CyberGhost does.
The company enforces a very strict no logs policy, so in case some agency asks them to hand over the user data, they will have nothing to give, because there are no records stored.
Another thing which you should look for when buying a VPN subscription, is support for a proper Kill Switch. What happens when your internet connection to CyberGhost VPN’s server fails? Well, the application disables your internet completely. This is done to prevent web browsers, IM programs, etc, from connecting to websites, to stop them from transmitting your data, over your regular internet connection.
Such leaks can happen through web browsers too, even when you are connected to a VPN, this is called IP Leaks and DNS Leak, because they send your IP address and DNS information to websites. Both types of leaks can be prevented by CyberGhost VPN. And when you use the VPN, it prevents websites from tracking you around with ads.
The application uses 256-bit encryption over OpenVPN, L2TP-IPsec and PPTP protocols, so you can choose the one you want. Such encryption is crucial, to prevent MITM attacks and other malicious spying, to prevent theft of your identity and other important data.
CyberGhost VPN’s servers located in over 59 Countries, total around 1250 in number, so speed is never an issue. And because of the large number of locations, you can connect to any specific Country’s server you want to, and unlock the content such as music and video streaming services, which aren’t available for you normally, because of geo-restrictions.
The CyberGhost apps fopr Android, iOS, Windows and Mac are user friendly, and have 1-click connect options to secure your Wi-Fi, or mobile network quickly. There are no traffic or bandwidth limitations to restrict your usage, which means you can download torrents as much as you want to.
A single subscription allows you to connect up to 5 devices to CyberGhost simultaneously.
