CyberGhost VPN for Mac allows you to protect your Internet connection with an IP address that hides your location. This privacy app also enables you to watch geo-restricted content from anywhere.

Pros

Installs and starts quickly: After downloading the software, you can open it immediately and start your VPN with a couple of clicks. No separate installation is required, and after loading, you can hit the Power button onscreen, and it will provide a new IP address for immediate use.

Numerous features for privacy protection: There are numerous other features included here as well, including DNS leak protection, Firewall, SecureConnect, and over 300 servers located throughout the world.

Cons

Some features missing from Windows version: There are some features still missing from the Windows version, including some Privacy Control options. This is not a major problem unless you are used to using it on Windows and need that feature, but something to keep in mind if switching over.

Bottom Line

    Developer's Description

    CyberGhost VPN secures your Internet connection with advanced encryption technology, and exchanges your unique IP address with one of its own, an IP address that just goes back to a CyberGhost server (and not to you) and which is being shared with hundreds of other users. Besides anonymity and privacy you can bypass geo-restrictions to access your favorite content, Facebook, YouTube, or any censored website from anywhere. CyberGhost VPN helps you reboot the Internet and bring back the time when the Internet was a promise for more freedom, more privacy and a free flow of information for everybody. It gives back the freedom to roam, wherever you want to, to freely express your opinions and to feel comfortable again while surfing, sharing files, using WLAN and managing your online banking account. And it is easy and secure to use.
