    CyberGhost is one of the most affordable VPNs on the market — you can get a subscription for as low as $2.03/month. I sometimes assume that price indicates quality, but with VPNs, I've been proven wrong before. So I wanted to see whether CyberGhost can really deliver at such a low price. I did a deep dive into CyberGhost’s privacy policy and security measures to determine whether it’s secu...

    Tried CyberGhost for Torrenting. Got Caught in One Week.

    Had difficulty getting it to connect sometimes. When I shut it off, because it slowed down my surfing,...  my computer had difficulting reconnecting without it. When I torrented, within a week I was notified of copyright infringement by McGraw Hill, jeopardizing my internet service. Not worth the risk to use this Ghost VPN anymore. Support offered me no help to solve what happened.More

    It just works. All the time!

    My requirement is to have a VPN connection to my development lab, pretty much constantly. I had spent...  hours trying to get another (free) Open VPN client working on macOS. Some days it would work, often DNS didn't work and the VPN DNS would take over, or the VPN DNS would not get used when it was needed. I found myself connecting only when I really needed to, and disconnecting as soon as I could. Then I decided I could afford the modest fee for Viscosity - and I have not regretted it for a second. Easy to install, easy to set up (yes, you do need to read the instructions) and when our VPN server had a problem, I had the logs to help figure out what was going on. Initially I set up a TAP (L2 bridged) connection, and my macOS did give me a warning about "legacy system extensions" (See support.apple.com/en-us/HT210999) but once I allowed it, it worked just fine. We later moved the whole setup to a L3 routed (TUN) connection which did not require any legacy system extensions, and it still works perfectly - irrespective of screen savers or any other software.

    The Bottom Line

    Final Verdict: A Safe and Extremely User-Friendly VPN Ideal for Streaming CyberGhost offers incredibly user-friendly apps that make accessing streaming sites from around the world really easy. Just search for the platform you want to access and CyberGhost will give you a server made to unblock it. Plus, if you ever have trouble accessing your favorite service, its support staff is super helpful and can be reached 24/7. When it comes to security, it stands out from other VPNs with its NoSpy servers. It also protects your data with military-grade encryption and features like its automatic kill switch. Independent audits, transparency reports, and a strong privacy policy also let you know CyberGhost can be trusted with your data. It does have a few downsides. Even with its gaming servers, it’s not a great VPN for online competitive play, and it doesn’t work in restrictive countries like China. I would recommend
