    CyberGhost is simple and easy to use, perfect for someone who just wants safety with the flick of a switch. However, it slows down my internet speed by over half, even though I connect to the fastest server. That sounds a bit excessive to me. Once a day it disconnects and I have to restart it, typically at night. That's not such a big problem, just a slight annoyance. Devs responded but apparently didn't read my review. I didn't mention battery drainage

    This is awesome. It takes some getting used to (most things do for me), but I'm getting it down. I got a thrill out of a website seeing me in Phoenix (which I'm not). And yet I can easily switch over - out of VPN- when I have to. And a damn good deal. Under $100 and I won't be charged again for 3 years & 3 months.

    I was on the market for a VPN service for a while now, I live abroad and just didn't find it fair paying for a streaming service and not getting all the shows available because of my location even though I paid them American coins so I was tired of it. I searched and searched for VPNs and almost went with ExpressVPN until I saw CyberGhost and everything about it appealed to me especially the yearly price that really gives you 18 months of service for like $42dlls instead of the $140 for 18 months from the above mentioned VPN service. I read reviews, comments and decided to get it since it has a money back guarantee but I'm sure now I won't be needing it because this does everything we want. I can browse US websites and streaming services where I live with no problem and the speed is for the most part amazing (sometimes theres barely a lag but it fixes itself quickly), honestly a freaking heaven sent lol. If you want an affordable VPN that's safe and doesn't cost you a ton with the same tools as ExpressVPN then I def recommend CyberGhost :)

    After forestalling the acquisition of a VPN method way too long, (I'm probably already all over the "darque whebb") I read thru a few reviews and liked what I found regarding CyberGhost. I threw money at them and I am more than satisfied with the software's performance to date. My iMac with "High Sierra" transacts with their servers readily at boot up and establishes a solid channel to their servers. I also loaded the "ghost" on two iPhones and an iPad. It locks in the VPN whether I'm on my home WiFi, a grocery store WiFi or when I am crossing the "fruited plains" communicating with AT&T's cell network. I cannot testify to the quality of their security levels (I haven't hired a reputable hacker to break into my system) so I'll leave this at the user observation of "it loads good" and wish you all a good evening. Thanks again for the product. If I get hacked and my life is ruined ... I'll try to get back online and lower the rating of my post, but until then...

    So far it operates seamlessly on my Android mobile devices, on my wife's iPhone it has a difficult time with Amazon and some other aps and websites. On my PC sometimes it takes a while to connect to a server, but overall I am very happy with the product.

  • New version blocks cellular data in iOS 14.2 Dec 21, 2020

    By Slamdr
    I’ve used this VPN for years and it used to work really well, but their new version now blocks cellular data. As long as you’re not connected to WiFi, you will get no data services at all for any apps or services on your phone that require them - that means nothing that uses data will work, not maps, directions, etc. The phone will only be able to make and receive a phone call. When tracing the source of this problem, a month-long endeavor that started November 6, 2020 with the help of mobile service provider and Apple, Apple tech support mentioned in December 2020 that they are seeing this problem a lot. If you want to use this VPN, you need WiFi. To use cellular data if you’re not connected to WiFi, you have to delete the app from your phone and all it’s data. Customer service keeps asking me to do the exact same things since I reported this problem - resetting network, reinstalling the app, changing the VPN protocol, checking which ports cellular data uses (mobile company doesn’t know btw), disabling firewalls, disabling parental controls, turning off low-power mode, turning airplane mode on and off, resetting network settings again, etc. What they don’t seem to be doing (or mentioned that they are doing) is looking to see what changed in their earlier versions to now that blocks cellular data. Until this is fixed, their service is unusable.

    Makes you think you can have a free account based on their disclosure about data collection. They profess they collect info based on who is using the free version or not, yet, there's no free version period. Immediately upon signing up (which is data collection) it wants you to pick a plan otherwise you can't use, not even to test. Putting in credit card details is also data collection. So, how trustworthy are they if they lie about it all. Rank them -10 for lies

    I needed a VPN to watch my shows while studying abroad and I literally can’t even stream my shows without constant freezing and loading screens. My internet (which works perfectly fine when I don’t have the VPN on) suddenly doesn’t work at all (can’t even send text messages) and when i want to turn the VPN off again i can’t even get into the app; it just takes me to the app’s loading screen. The only way to turn off the VPN is to delete and redownload the app, which is ridiculous. Then i have to restart my wifi, reconnect, redownload the VPN and restart it and then the whole battle starts all over again. On a very rare good day i can maybe watch one episode of one show with a little bit of freezing here and there. That’s it. Since this is a paid service you would think that it would actually work but nope. I’ve had the VPN since March and i have barely even used it because 1. It makes watching my shows sooo irritating and 2. Even if i keep it on just for general protection I can’t even do simple things like send a text or surf my social media feed. Completely worthless. Ridiculous. Waste of money. Do not get this app.

    Beware!! You get 45 days free trial. App runs fast for the 45 days and goes to hell after that (and of course you can't get a refund then). Tech support no help. Google maps on my phone doesn't work with it, my online bank doesn't work with it, many online department stores don't work with this app -- what's the use? I was ripped off -- don't you make the same mistake. OMG -- IMMEDIATELY clicked on the refund hyperlink and hyperlink is INVALID! What a joke this company is!!

    The iPhone has a built in VPN indicator that shows when a vpn is active or not active. The app also has a notification system that notifies you when the vpn is active and when it deactivates (unreliable). The main issue is that the vpn will disconnect frequently. It will disconnect when you don’t have your phone unlocked or simply if you use your phone for to long. Every time you unlock you phone or every once in a while you use the app the vpn symbol will pop up on the iPhone screen indicating that it was off and just turned on. The whole point of a vpn is to be continually on, not to turn off when less activity occurs. I contacted customer service they were fast and respectful but did not have a solution for the problem. I have to give it one start because the app kinda works but you can’t kinda have good security.

  • Just Leave Me Alone! Sep 4, 2020

    By The Lighthouse G
    I have nothing to hide. However, sick and obsessive people are abusing gps dots, trackers and more against people they don’t personally know but want to know more about. If you don’t have the confidence, courage or sanity to meet people in a natural manner, stalking and following them around indicates that you are in need of psychological help no matter how you rationalize it. If you did not obtain an approved subpoena, or you don’t own the property you are tracking, or you are not legally vested in that property, then it is against the law to track that person/property. If you think someone you are dating (not married) is cheating on you, then leave them! You do not have the right to track them everywhere they go. It’s also dangerous to illegally track people you don’t know bc they could think you are trying to do body harm or rob them which may cause them to defend themselves on an entirely different level.

    Really good app with a nice UI, stable servers and great support. And of course you have to (or at least should) pay in order to use it if you really care about privacy and a reliable service. The company claims a strict no-log, as well as a no-monitor policy, which transparency reports from the company seem to back up. Nevertheless, I'm not giving 5 stars due to (to my knowledge) no independent, external audits being done to certify these claims, which other VPN providers have already done.

  • I feel protected! Feb 24, 2020

    By Dinomagnik
    The service is great and the price is awesome for those on a budget. As a student, public WiFi is where I spend most of my time on the internet to surf and look up useful study information. With the addition of a VPN service, though not 100% foolproof, gives me the chance to feel a bit more protected when checking bank accounts and personal emails and such. I do wish that the app provided more opportunities to pick and choose locations of where I can connect to. The interface is simple and easy to navigate though.

    I've had a few days to take a look around & to be honest your torrenting speeds are diabolically slow compared to PIA, so much so that I'm going to have to look around & see what's on offer. It's okay for streaming, the Ui is informative but I was with PIA 4 Yrs the only reason I left was due to support person called Jason who failed to uphold his promise of what I've got with you. But your speeds are unbearably slow & I've tweaked settings & done everything to change but it's not viable.

  • Great Concept, Still Slow-ish May 6, 2019

    By GOTfanAbroad
    This is the best VPN service I have tried out of five, and I love the feature that tells you which connection points have been "optimised" for my different apps/services/needs. (i.e., this one is best for Netflix, that one is best for HBO, etc.) However, the connection speeds are a bit unpredictable, and sometimes I get a nice playing video whereas other times the video stops to buffer a lot. I’m not sure what could be done about this, if anything at all given the nature of VPN services, but it would be nice if they could fix that a little bit.

    When I 1st entered the app I was like wow. Then it popped up with a subscription. I do not like buying things and never will. I just wanna enter the app sign up and Just have fun with the app. Instead there is a fricking subscription in my way. Please fix. For now I'll give you a 3 star.

    It is very cute and easy to use. And that's why i subscribe to it, haha The only disadvantage is that when browsing foreign websites, it will be recognized that a VPN has been used. For example, it does not apply to prime video.
  • New interface - not a fan Jun 30, 2018

    By MarkPhlipy
    I was really quite pleased with the previous version, as a new user it seemed simple and intuitive yet gave plenty of options. I particularly liked that it gave you visual feedback that it was protecting you while using various specific feature (streaming vs. surfing). Behold this new "simpler" interface which is basically no interface at all. You now have virtually NO control over what the app does and somewhat limited control over location picking. I wasn't looking for the change, and the old interface was perfect. Why the change? Also, warning for new users - the set-up for the app is NOT intuitive, the purchase to setting up a user ID to getting the app to function required about 15 minutes on line with a tech support rep. Nothing to do with the app itself per se, more how the purchase to launch process is...complicated.

  • This would have a 5 star rating except for the fact that it completely crashed me phone. Jul 21, 2020

    By MrsSouth:)
    I started using a VPN because of all the data links. CyberGhost is one of the top rated. So of course I’m paying the subscription fee. I turned my VPN on last night and it crashed my internet entirely. I could not use my WiFi, my internet, nothing. The only app that would load was Facebook. I called my phone company and they did everything they could. Also, I couldn’t turn the VPN off because you have to have internet connection to use it. But the VPN itself was blocking my own internet and it was apparently a vicious cycle. I had to delete the app in order for my internet to work. I just paid for my month subscription and now I’m not even sure I want to continue using this specific company. I would love it if someone from cyberghost could reach out to me.

  • Good! but it has its flaws. Aug 10, 2018

    By Rawrfael
    This app is great for keeping my information safe but I've had problems with Netflix ever since I signed up with cyberghost. I get an error message if I start the Netflix app and can't watch anything unless I disconnect the VPN. Also the streaming servers are limited to UK and US servers but my favorite show is only viewable in Japan unless I wait for the international release of each season which happens maybe one month from the end of the season. Even when I use the streaming servers Netflix can still recognise that I'm using a VPN and a notification pops up asking me to "please disconnect from my VPN or proxy". I've already bought 3 years subscription so this is disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this app specifically for Netflix.

    I've just bought this VPN. honestly I'm a bit disappointed maybe It's this particular update that doesn't work well for me but I've seen others with same issue on PC I've tried using it for gaming, and it just was unreliable some days it may work for 1/2 hours next day it will keep taking you off the VPN. Servers aren't that good I can't watch videos without buffering. Hopefully next update they release. they address the issues with the program on PC & app aswell.

    As a regular VPN it performs reasonably well. I have rated it lower as it is not capable of providing the necessary IP addresses to allow streaming services in the UK to connect. Itv-hub is a good example of bad connectivity and realibility while other vpns are not blocked. Evan using its own browser it fails to work well. On the positive side it does have many servers to select.

    Every 2-3 weeks for a period of 2-3 Days you will encounter a problem called domain fronting. The helpline will not assist to solve it. It will fix itself, then break itself 2-3 weeks later. Save yourself the money and go with Nord or Express VPN.

  • Weird activity...and one complain.. Jun 16, 2019

    By From.Zero
    I was trying out the free trial, when I noticed the area in the settings that tells you how many devices are in use, said 3/7 when only one device was in use. Either you guys are lying on purpose, or somethings wrong. It came off sketchy, though. I retracted my subscription as soon as as saw it. Can’t trust your service to be honest, then why should I go further, you know? Hopefully, it’s just a glitch. The only other complain was that I couldn’t switch to another server in the same city without having to disconnect. And since I can’t see server loads, I didn’t know which to pick once I disconnected, and letting it pick the “best location” would always pick my city, which I didn’t want. The whole point of a vpn is to switch locations.

    Well. Well rated app, I decided to give a try. Seems like the developer is responding to 5 stars only but if you’d like free QA - you got one here - you may want to respond to let users you work on fixes (it is reputable solution at the end). My issue - an option - Block tracking is presumably should stop your precise location. My VPN was Seattle but google page shown where I am (I got screenshots). My version is tested in 5 minutes after installation, so I should have free but full version (advertised as 7 days). Also I’m a bit skeptical being able to see a couple words under Options: locations and options, formatted weird way with spaces. No kudos to Apple to let an app being listed. Deleted for sure.
