CyberGhost VPN Review – 2019

CyberGhost logo

CyberGhost VPN is a powerful VPN based in Romania. It offers business owners a simple yet helpful tool to protect their traffic and identity on the Internet.

CyberGhost VPN features

Cyberghost VPN features a number of protocols, including OpenVPN, L2TP-IPsec and PPTP. With 256-AES encryption, business data will stay safe from most DNS and IP leaks.

The VPN also features an automatic kill-switch that triggers every time there’s a hiccup in Internet connection, which helps to maintain protection on data traffic.

With over 3,800 servers in 60 countries, the VPN speed is relatively fast, regardless of location. For businesses with remote and/or traveling employees, the VPN is well integrated on most mobile platforms, including Android and iOS, so data remains protected, even while on the move.

CyberGhost pricing

CyberGhost VPN offers 4 pricing tiers that vary in price based on length of service commitment:

  • 1 Month Subscription – This plan costs $12.99/month, is billed monthly and comes with a 14-day money-back guarantee
  • 1 Year Subscription – An annual subscription costs $5.99/ month, is billed $71.88 annually and comes with a 45-day money back guarantee
  • 2 Year Subscription – This plan costs $3.69/month, is billed $88.56 every 2 years, and also comes with a 45-day money back guarantee
  • 3 Year Subscription – This is the cheapest of them all and clocks in at $2.75/ month. It’s billed out at $99 every 3 years and has a 45-day money back guarantee.

Each CyberGhost VPN subscription allows users to connect to up to 7 devices at the same time.

CyberGhost customer support

CyberGhost VPN provides solid support with 24/7 live chat and a ticketing system. There’s also a robust knowledge base full of articles and tutorials that can be used for troubleshooting purposes.

What’s lacking

The biggest drawback of CyberGhost VPN is its parent company. While the VPN is based in Romania and developed in Germany, it is owned by an Israeli company – Kape Technologies. This company is previously known as Crossrider, which has a history of distributing malware and adware.

In addition to a dubious owner, CyberGhost VPN is also not a 100% no-log VPN, even though they claim to be. In their privacy policy, you will find that this VPN uses several third-party analytics to collect data. This exposure to third-party software is a risk that users need to consider prior to subscribing to the service.
