Internet is becoming a less private place each day as various individuals, corporations, and even governments in some cases, are collecting users information and metrics. What makes user tracking an easy task is the IP, the unique address that we all use to connect to internet. But what if we start using a different address?
CyberGhost developers offer such a solution, giving users the opportunity to browse the web using their servers IP addresses. Through this application, users are connected to a VPN ( Virtual Private Network) and are able to access the internet anonymously. Due to the large number of people using the same address, it is virtually impossible to track a specific person. The connection is also encrypted, using 1024-bit SSL encryption.
The application is intuitive and easy to use. After the program is installed, it requires the creation of an account. With this account, users can log in into the CyberGhost interface and activate the VPN connection anytime. The VPN IP address is permanently displayed in the interface, and several options let users choose between faster access or better privacy. Most of the servers are in Germany, and a few others in the United States.
A free account comes with 1 GB of internet traffic, for more data users need to purchase a premium account. There are also some other limits for the free accounts, like waiting in a queue to access the VPN or forced disconnection after 6 hours.
Overall CyberGhost is a useful application, especially for those who want to keep their browsing truly private.
