If you want to protect your privacy online, there are tons of ways that you can surf anonymously. One of the ways is to use a TOR network, but that will require some complicated setup. An easier way is to connect via a VPN, and this is what CyberGhost VPN is providing: security and anonymity on the web. And yes, we are having a giveaway for this great service. Read on for more details.
When it comes to VPN services, you can easily find thousands of them in Google. Different VPN serves different needs – some allow you to download/view blocked content from another country while others are focused on providing a secure environment for you to be online. CyberGhost VPN belongs to the latter. When you access its website, you won’t see description like “fast downloads,” “unblock websites,” etc. Instead, you will find description on how CyberGhost VPN encrypts your data and protects your online privacy.
When you are connected to CyberGhost VPN, your IP address is masked with another offshore IP address, and it connects you to an anonymizing server where your original location can’t be detected. In addition, it encrypts all of the Internet traffic between you and the VPN service, so your data can’t be eavesdropped on by others.
CyberGhost VPN comes with a desktop client for Mac OS X and Windows and apps for Android and iOS. For Linux and other devices, you can manually configure your PPTP/L2TP/OpenVPN to connect to CyberGhost.
This is what you will see when you open up the CyberGhost desktop client. It shows a map with your original location.
To connect to CyberGhost VPN, simply click the big “ON” button at the center of its screen. It will then automatically connect to an anonymous location. You can, of course, select the country you want to connect to or the IP address you want to use.
The basic package of CyberGhost VPN is free, though it comes with ads and forced disconnection after 3 hours of continuous surfing. It is also only available for Mac, Windows and Android. Alternatively, you can opt for the Premium/Premium Plus package which unlocks all the limitations and has faster speed.
CyberGhost is incredibly useful when you are always surfing using the public WiFi at an airport or coffee shop. You can easily protect your online presence without having to worry about someone eavesdropping on your data.
