CyberGhost is all about the user, making it a brilliant VPN for first-timers. It takes a slightly different approach than most VPNs, focusing more on what you want to do with your VPN, rather than where you want to connect.
Like all VPNs it sets up an encrypted virtual network link between your computer, phone or tablet and the company’s VPN server, connecting you to the internet through that. This prevents others from snooping on your data if, say, you’re connecting from an unsecured public WiFi network in a coffee shop, and it also hides your location and identity.
For the websites and services you connect to, you look like an anonymous user based in the same city as the VPN server itself.
CyberGhost has apps for MacOS and Windows PCs plus Android and iOS devices. You can install it on as many as you want, though only five devices can be connected at any one time.
