CyberGhost VPN Review: Protect your Online Identity & Privacy

CyberGhost VPN is an anonymity software for Windows, that will help you hide & protect your online identity & privacy. Today, on the Internet, anything is possible – even your computer getting hacked and your data were 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 a proxy and the other is by changing your DNS servers.  These procedures are not very easy for the non-geek users. But here is a free VPN software that can provide you anonymity with just a single click.

CyberGhost VPN Review

CyberGhost VPN Review

CyberGhost is an anonymity VPN solution for Windows that completely hides and protects your identity online. CyberGhost is available in two variants, CyberGhost Premium Plus and CyberGhost Free. The features are as follows:

CyberGhost Free VPN Features:

  • The package for very occasional surfers.
  • Includes only 1 GB of traffic/month
  • Access to Free servers – which may be slow
  • Limited availability with waiting times
  • Forced disconnection after 6 hours
  • Bandwidth limited to 2 Mbps only.

CyberGhost Premium Plus VPN Features:

  • CyberGhost Premium Plus VPN is a package for frequent surfers and permanent Internet users to satisfy every desire in terms of surfing, downloading and streaming. For anyone who wants to use the Internet without constraints.
  • Unlimited Traffic
  • Additional protection for mobile devices (PPTP)
  • Access to Free servers, Premium servers, and VIP servers
  • Guaranteed availability without any waiting times
  • Includes Premium support

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, which 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.

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.

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.

Buy CyberGhost VPN

CyberGhost Premium starts $2.50 per month whereas CyberGhost Premium starts $3.95 per month. You can buy CyberGhost Premium VPN from their online store and stay safe from government spying. They offer a 30-day money back policy.

Stay safe, surf anonymously!
