CyberGhost since 2017 belongs to Kape Technologies (a company engaged in cybersecurity), which raises many questions among users because the company used to be called Crossridder and was associated with the distribution of adware through infected software packages. The headquarters of Kape Technologies is in London. As we know the UK is part of the Five Eyes alliance that has an agreement on cooperation in the exchange of intelligence including, but CyberGhost is registered in Romania and operates following Romanian legislation, and this country is known for its strict jurisdiction regarding the protection of users' privacy rights.

CyberGhost has a zero-logging policy, this means that your online activity, downloads, movie views, visited websites are not saved on the servers of the service, your activities are not recorded and not given to third parties, even if the interested parties will manage to take over the servers, they will not find any information about you. The service must have built-in protection from leakage IPv4/IPv6 DNS, as well as WebRTC, which guarantees you anonymous surfing and activity on the Internet, they have their DNS servers for this, and if the requests will come on IPv6, they immediately blocked and make invisible your IP address. It is worth mentioning that CyberGhost will need your name, email address, and payment information to administer your account, but this information does not in any way compromise your anonymity.

Features & Usability

Let's consider what features make CyberGhost different from the others and what its advantages are.

The first feature worth paying attention to and what makes CyberGhost stand out from the rest is of course the No Spy server feature. To begin with, let's note that the server is located in Romania, which makes it out of reach of the Five Eyes alliance, as well as Fourteen Eyes, our anonymity is increased, the performance of servers for torrents is improved, great bandwidth. The Kill Switch feature is very useful when you have a break in your VPN connection, at which point your data becomes vulnerable and the Kill Switch immediately terminates your connection to the Internet, preventing data leakage.

We also have a split tunneling feature that allows you to share files, watch videos under VPN encryption while still being able to enjoy local content. Sadly though, split tunneling is not available in macOS, iOS, and Linux apps.

There is a TOR compatibility feature, which further enhances our security when surfing the Internet, especially useful in countries with strict censorship.

CyberGhost offers in addition to that malware and ad blocking, which is also additional protection for your data, unfortunately not all ads are blocked, including Youtube videos, but the protection against malicious sites is provided at a good level, so in the end, it's not a bad addition to the arsenal of basic features. The CyberGhost VPN application is intuitive and easy to use, I like the color selection solution, especially at night it is relevant, there are many sections with information you are interested in and it will not be difficult to find even for beginners.
