CyberGhost VPN review: Competitive features, but its parent company gives  me the creeps - CNET

CyberGhost VPN is a popular option for a VPN provider and for a good reason we are going to discuss in this article.

The first thing we love about CyberGhost VPN is the number of devices it can be available – up to 7. This is usually more than enough for a single household, and it includes PCs, mobile devices, Smart TVs, and consoles. This however works so that once you logged in via certain device, the slot is dedicated to it until you log out. So, be mindful if visitors want to use it, remember to remind them to free the slots for the next device.

The VPN provides 6.5k+ servers in more than 90 countries, and while it’s somewhat lower than before, it’s still impressive. There is an option for adding a dedicated IP for a small price, and switching from a dedicated to a random IP is rather easy. The provider also included some useful features to the service, such as adblocking, malware protection, and data compression that can be very useful for mobile devices.

The full set of features is available for Windows, and Windows PC users can benefit from CyberGhost VPN the most. Mobile version features are slightly limited, but sufficient for a secure and private navigation. The client support is informative and prompt, responding relatively quickly on a 24/7 base.

The downside is the trial plan, which is only 24 hours for desktop computers.

Unlocks

When using CyberGhost VPN, there is plethora of region-related features that can be unlocked, more than 3000 main features to be precise. This includes unlocked features on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and other big streaming houses, as well as torrenting, which is available from certain nodes while from others it isn’t, so necessary precautions should be taken. CyberGhost VPN stepped in with URL filtering that can avert you from risky websites on which there is a high risk of exposure.

As for additional features, the CyberGhost VPN allows you other streaming and downloading websites, as well as constant security from risky websites and redirecting. These features as always don’t come available on every server, so switching the servers may be needed to unlock different features.

While testing CyberGhost VPN we have come across some issues with the kill switch on a Windows device. The program failed to connect to a VPN server but a notification displayed that the kill switch is active, leading to a necessity of double checking if the connection is established at the moment.

Performance

As for the performance, CyberGhost VPN falls into the higher mid-range in terms of speed (160-180Mbps), which is more than sufficient for most online activity and occasional torrenting. The torrenting is not as speedy as it can be, but with a little patience it can be well done. This can vary from region to region and depend on the speed plan at your internet provider.

Final Verdict

CyberGhost VPN is a wonderful VPN application with numerous features working great on Windows desktop devices and solidly enough on Mobile devices. The 7 device plan comes as an extra perk with this high-tier VPN provider.
