CyberGhost 6 VPN Review
CyberGhost 6 VPN Review
Because of the growing number of online threats, special VPN (i.e. Virtual Private Network) applications are becoming more and more popular among Internet users. And I think it is no wonder because with the help of these applications you can ensure the total anonymity while browsing the web and bypass a lot of restrictions imposed by providers. So, it goes without saying that the best way to stay anonymous and safe online is to use Virtual Private Network service providers. One of the best services which are now available on the software market is CyberGhost 6.0 VPN.
CyberGhost 6.0 VPN is your personal VPN client for Windows (and also for Android and iOS devices) which provides you with anonymity and security on the Internet. The main advantage of this VPN client is that it uses the most secure servers between your computer and providers for encrypting your traffic and substituting your real IP-address. The application allows you to browse the Internet in the usual and common way but at the same time it hides your real IP-address. Each time you enter the Internet you get a unique IP-address, nobody will be able to keep track of your online activity, for example, purchases, transactions, and so on. In addition, CyberGhost 6.0 VPN is a reliable way to protect your computer against malware and other online threats. This new version has hot a lot improvements and new features which allow you to browse the Internet more safely and securely.
Download and Installation- you can download this fully improved version of CyberGhost 6.0 VPN on the official website. The programs installer is very tiny; just about 15 MB in size. Currently the program is available in eight different languages including English, German, French, Italian, and so on.
CyberGhost 6.0 VPN is offered in three different subscription plans- Free, Premium and Premium Plus. All plans include unlimited traffic and bandwith, AES 256-bit encryption and antifingerprinting system, but, of course, Premium and Premium Plus ones are more functional. The Free version can be used only on one PC (also on Mac and Android) and the number of VPN servers is very limited. The Premium is 5 times faster as compared with the Free one and it provides access to more 30 countries and 600 servers. The Premium Plus version is the most functional of all. You can use it at the same time up to five devices. The program allows you to enjoy all premium features for three days after the installation; after that period, you can choose one of offered plans or stay with the Free version which is, by the way, more than enough for home users.
The installation procedure is very fast and easy. You need to perform some standard installation steps; i.e. first of all, you have to read and accept the terms of the license agreement and install the special network adapter provided by the program which is needed for reliable functionality of the program. After performing these two easy steps, CyberGhost 6.0 VPN is ready for use.
The Interface of the Program- truly saying I like the new interface of the program. The developers completely redesigned it and made it more functional, convenient and easy to use. Now the program has got a so called tile interface, i.e. all program tools and features are placed into several tiles and they can opened and accessed through them. CyberGhost 6.0 VPN consists of six different tiles; they are as follows- Surf Anonymously (this tile allows you to choose manually or automatically any of offered VPN servers and browse the Internet without unveiling your real IP address); Unblock Streaming (this tile provides unlimited access to region-restricted services such as Netflix, and so on, and unblock them); Protect My Internet Connection (this tile offers some extra features for protecting your network, for example, data compression, extra speed, and so on); Torrent Anonymously (this tile allows you to configure torrent download and get file from torrent servers anonymously); Unblock Basic Websites (with the help of this tile you can access and unblock some popular region-restricted websites) and Choose My VPN server (in this tile you can find several options for configuring and saving VPN server preferences).
