Surf anonymously with CyberGhost Secure VPN – Review

Today, on the Internet, anything is possible – even your computer getting hacked and your data stolen. As a result,  anonymity over the internet has become a must! When you are an anonymous user, you can hide your IP address and no one can steal your private information from your PC, and consequently, you can protect your online identity and protect your computer from being hacked!

There are different ways on how to surf the web anonymously. One is by using proxy and the other is by changing your DNS servers.  These procedures are not very easy for the non-geek users. But here is an app that can provide you anonymity with just a single click.

To get started, you need to do is create an account with CyberGhost. When you download and install CyberGhost, you will be asked to create an account with CyberGhost. You can create an account and save the highly confidential PUK code from that page itself. When you’ve successfully created the account and you’ve logged in with it, you will see a button, that says “Connect to VPN”. After you click on the button you will be connected to the CyberGhost Servers and your online identity would be completely hidden. Remember connecting to a VPN might take a minute or a two.

I thought of testing this service. So here are the test results for you!

Anonymity Test

The app works really well in anonymizing my computer. It completely changed my IP address.

At the time of testing, I was in India and I was connected to the North America Servers. I checked my IP (www.whatismyipaddress.com) before connecting to VPN and after connecting to VPN.

Both the IPs were different, as you can see the screenshots below.

Email Test

My guess was right – this app doesn’t support email protocols. I mean, you can’t send email anonymously with this software. You would need to add an exception for your email protocols or else you wouldn’t be able to send emails from your PC!

After you add an exception for your Email Provider, you will be connected to the email service with your own IP only and NOT with any other anonymous IP.

To add an Exception, open CyberGhost and click on Settings option. Under the “Exceptions” tab, click on the “Adding e-mail server” button. Here you can add exceptions for your emails. See Screenshots below.

If you are a privacy conscious individual who would like to keep your location private and secret, I would like to strongly suggest that you check CyberGhost, which is fast and considered to be one of the best software.
