Pros: There are a ton of features the software brings with it, to start with the most useful is connecting to a VPN Server of listed countries which makes it easy to access content which is not available in your home country. Secondly it provides protection against malicious websites even if you accidentally get redirected to one. Thirdly the ad-blocker feature is a life saver when you have to access some useful websites fully loaded with advertisements blocking your way every time with a pop-up. Last but not the least the most useful feature if you are on a metered connection you can enable Data Compression feature which saves you the data for all the day.

Cons: For few countries you'll be able to connect but your internet will stop working with the VPN. Though it provides value for money but you can connect up to only 7 devices under one username which i believe should be a little more nearer to 10.

Overall: Overall experience has been phenomenal with CyberGhost no matter where you are you can create your own secure network to connect and do your work.

Pros: pricing; the fact that the pricing system for the vpn is one that encompasses every user is one that is lovable as regardless of what your budget is, you are sure to find a subscription plan that works for you, only that, you will have access to the internet protection service for a shorter period of time than those who pay more. For instance, when you pay for a month's subscription, you have access to the vpn's features for a short period of time as against someone who paid for a year's subscription who will have unmetered access to the vpn's services and features for a full year.

With cyberghost vpn, you are presented with plethora of choices, which means regardless of any popular operating system you are on i.e. windows, iphone, android or linux, they have got you covered as they have an app for every platform out there.

Servers; cyberghost security team while trying to beat server congestion that will most likely slow down user experience and internet speed, their server count has been doubled to accommodate each and every of their subscribers without making them wait for a server to become less congested before putting up their internet shield.

Log free; this is my best feature of cyberghost vpn, as paying for a vpn that tracks your online activities while that was what you paid to be protected against in the first place is not worth it.

Speed; as against the vpn apps i have used earlier before coming across cyberghost vpn, i do not experience any crawl while surfing.

Cons: Price; regardless of the fact that cyberghost vpn has got a subscription category for everyone, their services still feel expensive when compared to other alternatives out there, it has an undisputed fact that they offer a top-notch service but the pricing can be better.

User interface; as earlier mentioned in the pros, i have used a lot of vpn apps and i have seen ones with better user interface design that makes it easy for both new users and old timers alike to get around and get things done without tinkering about what option is embedded in what menu. Cyberghost vpn team has a lot of work to do in enhancing their interface to be competitive with the others.

Pros: The application is my favorite when it comes to opening pages in which unfortunately in my country is restricted due to government control, since it hides my IP address, and replaces it with one of the cyberghost network so that I know I am browsing from anonymity which makes it safe to carry out transactions on the net, one of the advantages is that while you use cyberghost nobody can see your transactions, nor your personal conversations, nor the browsing history, since navigation is found encrypted with 256-bit AES technology, which the company says a hacker would need 100 years to decipher, there are certainly many advantages in using cyberghost.

Cons: Cyberghost is a program that sometimes turns out to have some instability and it has happened to me that the connection is lost and it is no longer protected, a situation that has happened to me when I have slow browsing speed, in fact I do not have a fast connection and when the Internet slows down, this error usually occurs, which I think should be corrected quickly since the normal IP is exposed, to avoid that, when I have slow internet I do not use cyberghost.

Overall: I highly recommend cyberghost since it certainly gives you protection when surfing the internet, thanks to cyberghost vpn I can access certain pages to perform transactions online safely, and while you have an average speed connection the program behaves very well, plus You can select the IP address from a list of countries which gives you the advantage of navigating as if you were in that country.

Pros: I really like this vpn because its super simple to use, even the free version. You just setup on your computer and choose the IP address of the country that is your convenience, or preference or you can let CyberGhost to choose for you.They show you the flag and the IP address.

The interface is easy to use and the graphics are really clean and friendly for everyone, the thing I like the most of its really fast without slowing down my computer.

When you are in a country the goverment controls everything even the web pages they dont want you to enter, this is the perfect solution I have found.

Cons: I don't have any complaints about CG, works perfectly for me

Overall: Protects me of any danger when i'm online, and helps surface any restriction of my government and private browsing, and it's free

Overall: The service is great, its interface is comfortable. It is really reliable provider.

Pros: Out of all the VPN's I've used this is by far the best. It is very easy to use as well as giving multiple options depending on what you are using it for. For someone who takes cyber security quite seriously a VPN is a must have and this ticks all the boxes.

Cons: Whilst the free version is very good by itself it runs out over a limited time and from that point must be paid for, however this is to be expected for a VPN.

Pros: The ease of use of their Google Chrome extension. Quickly toggle between using CyberGhost with a click of your mouse and instantly be anonymous. Their free offering gives you a good amount of offerings, while still providing you with a much better experience (connection speed) to justify the cost of a premium account.

Cons: I did have some issues in reliably connecting to the VPN on the free version. However, after a few tries it worked just fine. I didn't experience this while using a premium account.

Overall: The premium option is really the option you'd want to go with. Having experience on both, you'll enjoy the paid version much more if you use VPNs on a regular basis to anonymously browse the web.

CyberGhost is easy to set up and run and does not slow your speed down.

Pros: I really really like how cyber ghost does not slow my speed down while playing my favorite game or visiting websites. if I am downloading something it downloads just as fast as though the cyber ghost weren't even there. Also, I can put it on 7 different devices for a small cost each month. It is well worth the money you pay for it.

Cons: If I had to say anything bad about this software the only thing I could say is that I think their Ghost picture could be a little cuter. There is just not much I can say bad about this company. I love the company. It is a well-organized company in my opinion.

Overall: It protects me daily from the mean world we live in.

Pros: CyberGhost is one of the best VPN. With a premium package at an affordable price, it is not surprising that it is one of the best VPNs on our website. CyberGhost is a VPn that allows you to access the complete Netflix library and bypass the Great Firewall of China. With its high speeds, you can watch series in streaming without suffering buffering.

Cons: Change and hide my ip works perfectly, the problem is that it consumes a lot of ram, which is understandable but if they could make it more accessible for low-resource machines, it would be much better because it would be even more accessible

Fairly good application.

Pros: I've used CyberGhost to stream videos online and the speed performance was okay. It doesn't require a fast internet connection to work well.

Cons: CyberGhost is very heavy and open like two to three processes in the background which some firewall applications will block those process.

Also, there are limited IPs

Pros: It is easy to use, you can select the IP address of the country that is your convenience, the graphical interface is simple, but still pleasant, since it shows you the new IP address, even adorns it with the country's flag to the that belongs. the free version is functional almost 100% with few limitations.

Cons: one of the things that I do not like, is that in the free version there is a counter to access the cyberghost servers, I do not like to turn on the computer try to install the services without your authorization.

Overall: Guaranteed private browsing, thanks to the application I was able to connect to pages that were prohibited, and the graphic interface is as simple and functional as I love.

Pros: This piece of software is easy to setup and use. I figured what I had to do in less than 2 minutes. I think even a non-tech user could have it going in less than 5 minutes. Public networks are never safe and it's better to stay protected than being sorry later.

Cons: Every VPN service has access to all the traffic on their network, even if they don't keep logs.
