Editors' Review

by   / February 15, 2015

CyberGhost VPN 5 makes it easy to surf safely and anonymously over a virtual private network. The software routes your Internet traffic through a global network of powerful servers, masking your actual IP address and geographic location with simulated addresses that can make it appear like your computer is in an entirely different country.

Pros

Interface: CyberGhost VPN's compact interface features a Start button, Settings, and Web links to Help & FAQ, a free account, server overview, and other resources. The layout displays your computer's location on a global map with options for selecting your virtual location and address.

Simulated location and IP address: By default, CyberGhost automatically simulates your geographic location and IP address, but you can specify either. Other options include Anti-Fingerprinting.

Freedom: Every Internet user needs privacy and security, but those who live under restrictions and even threats can use tools like CyberGhost VPN to communicate freely.

Cons

Limits in free version: CyberGhost VPN's free version has limited choices compared to premium upgrades. For example, free users have fewer servers to choose from.

Bandwidth: Even with broadband, the fastest VPN still adds layers to your network connection. The advantages of a VPN may outweigh any lag time (which you might not notice in any case), but it could be an issue for some users.

Bottom Line

VPNs once required technical skills (or help), but CyberGhost VPN 5 is practically a one-click solution. It makes the privacy and security of VPNs available to a much wider audience.
