CyberGhostVPN is a VPN service provider that is based in Bucharest, Romania. It was founded in 2007 by its current CEO Robert Knapp. The company’s is operating its service using 500+ VPN servers that are located in 30 countries all over the world.
The company was created in the principle that the internet was established as an environment where people can freely express their beliefs and opinions. And because of this, the mission of the company was to provide unrestricted access to all its users in regards to information and data online without sacrificing its customer’s privacy and anonymity.
Pricing & Plans
CyberGhost is unusual in offering a completely payment-free version of its VPN, which it maintains with the income from Premium subscriptions. The free plan gives effectively unlimited use of the VPN, but only to a limited number of servers and countries, and is subject to restrictions such as queues at busy times and a blanket prohibition on torrenting.
Features of CyberGhostVPN
CyberGhostVPN provides its users access to PPTP (128 bit encryption), OpenVPN (AES-256 encryption) and L2TP/IPSec (AES-128) protocols. These encryption protocols enable you to access the internet safely and securely.
Free Proxy service
CyberGhostVPN provides users with free proxy service for their browsing needs. You can use the free proxy service to surf the internet anonymously.
Free VPN Service
CyberGhostVPN offers a Free VPN service to all VPN users. The Free VPN is available for Windows, Android and Mac. The Free VPN is unlimited, but is only allowed to access a basic server and its connection to the VPN server is done automatic.
Security & Privacy
CyberGhost offers 256-bit AES encryption over OpenVPN as standard even in the free version. L2TP and PPTP are also available to users willing to wade through a lengthy but well-explained manual setup process detailed in the knowledge base. However, we would recommend users stick with OpenVPN as the more secure option anyway.
CyberGhost‘s free service is definitely useful, it has a clear no-logging policy and its paid-for tiers are capable. However, the software doesn’t stand out among its rivals, with fewer countries on its roster than Hide My Ass! and fewer servers than Private Internet Access.
