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.

Developer's Description

SURF ANONYMOUSLY: This profile activates all protection components and starts the browser in incognito mode. It also allows users to manually change the pre-set features, according to their own preference

TORRENT ANONYMOUSLY: This pre-configuration includes the selection of the) fastest P2P-compatible server (at the time of the release) along with appropriate protection measures.

UNBLOCK STREAMING: A highly complex profile with the goal of rendering the streaming services provided 100% accessible, regardless of the user's location.

UNBLOCK BASIC WEBSITES: Cost-free profile for everyone to use, providing access to censored or blocked websites worldwide without having to pay a fee.

PROTECT MY INTERNET CONNECTION: Similar to 'Surf Anonymously', but with an important twist: CyberGhost's "Network Protection" automatically detects wireless networks, remembers them and, if selected, unfolds its protection without any further effort from users, whenever the networks are detected again.

CHOOSE MY VPN SERVER: : A profile we dedicated to more advanced users, providing access to any of more than 600 single servers worldwide plus the manual activation of additional features such as ad and malware blocking.
