    I was convinced by the possibility to use Bitcoins for payment. I do not have anything to hide, but we don't have to know everything about everyone, right?

    The advertising and tracking blockers are important to me. Now I can finally surf without being analyzed and remain completely anonymous.

    Very good 256-bit AES encryption. With this encryption even governments and internet providers can't track me.

    More than 3000 servers in 60 countries, so you can always find a suitable server for your own needs.

    So far I've always had a good connection and acceptable ping. Thanks for the good service!

    Luke

    Identity theft occurs more and more often, so I decided to protect my financial transactions and online orders only via VPN.

  • Doug

    Good VPN provider for a small amount of money, with its the own anti-fingerprint system, how cool is that.

    Sebastian
    03/11/2018

    Finally a provider which really does not reduce the bandwidth, just because you have a little more traffic over the line.

    Julia
    02/11/2018

    I'd recommend you this VPN, especially if you're abroad, because social networking sites or Wikipedia are often blocked!

  • Peter

    First I had some problems with the installation, but then the friendly customer service helped me with the furnishing. Thanks again!

Streaming

Films and series are usually available on streaming platforms before they are broadcast on television. Combine this with the large selection, no ads, and better quality, and it explains why more and more households are using streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, or Netflix. Unfortunately, new films and seasons of series are not available in all countries at the same time. Users who are not located in the countries of production need to be patient for a long time before they can access this content in their countries due to slow synchronization or licensing issues. Live broadcasts of sports events, such as NBA, NHL, or NFL games, are directly available to users in the US.

 

People who like to access the newest films, series, or sports broadcasts right away simply use a VPN software. A VPN client assigns an anonymous IP address to each user, changing their virtual location. This makes it impossible for streaming providers to determine in which country users are really located. Users can virtually “move” to the production countries and receive full access to all desired content. This easy and effective principle functions for all live sports broadcasts as well. This allows VPN users from all over the world to watch games of the NHL, NBA, and NFL live over the Internet.

 

The VPN provider CyberGhost operates 3000 high-performance servers at 60 locations all over the world such as in Spain, Germany, France, the US, Japan, and Italy. This offers users over 3,200 free IP addresses. With maximum download speeds of 98 Mbit per second, 4K content can be streamed effortlessly and without hampering. The fee-based versions of CyberGhost offer unlimited data volume, which is definitely recommended for streaming. Users with mobile Android or iOS devices can use the mobile app to stream their favorite films and series wherever and whenever they want.

File sharing

These days, users can download vast amounts of content from the Internet and store it on their computer thanks to high bandwidth and massive hard drives. The fastest downloads are offered through the well-known file sharing platforms such as uTorrent, eMule, or eDonkey. Unfortunately, a lot of users share illegal content that infracts on copyrights over the beloved exchange platforms as well. Authorities can obtain all necessary information on the file sharing users’ activities via their IP addresses. People who download or share illegal content, such as films, series, or music, can count on a hefty fine and severer punishments.

Instead of downloading files directly from the Internet without protection, file sharing users can alternatively use a VPN client. The software masks users’ IP addresses, and their activities are virtually unrecognizable to the outside world thanks to a secure encryption. The encrypted IP address makes it virtually impossible to trace activities. Most VPN software additionally has a kill switch function. This function shuts down the file sharing software in case the VPN connection is interrupted. Many VPN providers operate their own DNS servers, ensuring that third parties cannot access user data.

CyberGhost stands out with its high speed. In practice, download speeds of up to 98 Mbit per second and upload rates of max 87 Mbit per second are reached. Users benefit from the automatic emergency shut down via kill switch, automatic server change, and DNS and IPV6 leak protection. In accordance with its own log-free policy, the VPN provider only stores a minimum of login information. User activity is neither logged nor stored. The usage of P2P networks is allowed.

Circumventing firewalls

The Internet connects people and intrinsically represents freedom of expression and boundless opportunity. This is the case in many countries such as the US and Germany. However, there are exceptions: countries such as China, Russia, or Turkey. The governments of these countries unfortunately use their technological capabilities to censor the Internet and block various websites and services. This makes it impossible for users in these countries to access well-known websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, or YouTube. There are also firewall blocks for companies and public institutions.

A VPN client encrypts the data connections of its users and masks the IP address. All data communication takes place through a secure tunnel when using VPN software. This makes it impossible for authorities or companies to get wind of the IP addresses and files of the VPN users. The firewalls in the aforementioned countries therefore do not recognize the VPN users’ connections as unwanted. This makes it possible to use the Internet without restrictions or censorship.

The VPN provider CyberGhost operates a total of 3000 servers at 60 locations all over the world. CyberGhost customers dispose of over 3,200 IP addresses thanks to this huge selection of VPN servers. The worldwide server network has excellent performance compared to other providers and is very well designed. The strong 256-bit AES encryption offers CyberGhost users ease of mind – they do not need to worry about the safety of their data and can surf the Internet without restrictions or censorship. The CyberGhost app allows users to always securely browse public networks with their mobile devices as well.

Security & anonymity

Users are exposed to a host of risks on the Internet. Viruses, worms, and trojans are no longer the only risks nowadays. Hackers, Internet criminals, and even companies present serious risks as well. The personal Internet user data are of great value to all these parties. Internet criminals attempt to access online banking data, while large corporations gather personal data for advertising purposes and resell these. Dangers loom in public as well as all private networks.

 

The security of a connection significantly increases when users do not access the Internet directly but through a VPN software. A secure encryption completely masks the actual IP address. All sent and received data are encrypted so that they are unrecognizable. Thanks to these effective measures, users surf the Internet anonymously when they use a VPN software. As such, criminals, authorities, and companies cannot access valuable data and misuse these for their own ends.

 

CyberGhost VPN software uses a strong AES encryption with 256 bit. This ensures the necessary security when surfing and protects the VPN user’s data and activity. The kill switch makes sure that all pre-determined programs are shut down immediately in case of a connection loss to the VPN. CyberGhost users benefit from automatic server change as well as DNS and IPV6 leak protection. CyberGhost supports a host of different data transmission protocols. These are listed in the following table.

As regards user anonymity, the Rumanian VPN provider only stores the login data of its customers and does not store user activity data.
