CyberGhost VPN – Hotspot Protection: Surf anonymously, private and securely encrypted, unblock websites and fight censorship
By CyberGhost SRL
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Surf anonymously, protect your private data while connected to public Wifi networks and access geo-restricted or censored content
Get anonymous online! The CyberGhost App hides your IP address and allows you to use the Internet as if you were John Doe – or one of some millions other John Does.
It connects you to the CyberGhost network, protects all your data inside a strong encrypted tunnel, so you can’t be hacked on public networks. It will open the Internet for all your purposes like watching blocked content and censored websites, while all along your IP identity is safely hidden from prying eyes.
The CyberGhost App supports the most secure L2TP VPN protocol with IPSec, a separate encryption technology, and gets you in no time into the Internet by providing you a profile for each country available in the worldwide CyberGhost network. With just a few swipes you get to surf the web as a French man, a German, an US citizen, or any other of 20 different nationalities.
Your benefits in a nutshell:
•As an anonymized surfer your private data is safe and secure against trackers and data miners
•Rest safe at public networks like hotspots and Internet cafés, for your data can’t be hacked
•Watch your favorite videos and listen to your favorite music even abroad and in countries where such content is blocked
CyberGhost VPN restores your online privacy, keeps you safe and let you surf freely
Please note: You must have a CyberGhost account and an active subscription or prepaid package in order to use this App.
Misleading and not free either
I went with CyberGhost because I heard good things about it from tech websites. I first tried out the free PC version which took a while to connect and only allowed you to connect two hours at a time. While on their website debating whether or not to subscribe to their premium service, up popped up a special sign up discount for $20 per year. I thought that was a good deal considering the good reviews I had heard regarding their paid service versus the cost of other similar services. It would also allow me to use the iOS app since ONLY PAID SUBSCRIBERS CAN USE THIS APP. So I did that and when I went to pay for it the price dropped to $15 per year. That's when the problems began. I thought I was paying for their premium service but all the $15 got me was to use their FREE CRAPPY SERVICE on my iPhone. This is simply bait and switch at its worst. No way to get my money back either. So basically when using the app every 2 hours the VPN disconnects without warning and often has problems connecting at all. I then have to reinstall the VPN every time. Since I was tricked and not a premium user as I thought, I am stuck with the very slow and crowded "free on PC" VPN servers which you can count on to disconnect with no warning. When that happens your identity is no longer protected.
A Great VPN
For those people subscribing to the premium CyberGhost service this is a wonderful VPN. Configuration is quick, your information stays private, and data is compressed. Also it allows you to switch countries directly from the app.
Mobile needs pro account.
A paid subscription is needed to use this app on a mobile device. But you can sign up for the free account for computers. There's even an automatic account creation feature.
For a free VPN solution for mobile devices, check out Hideman - they offer five hours free per week.
