    Developer's Description

    Anonymize yourself with your own Virtual Private Network. Simple and secure.
    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.
