Basic functions of CyberGhost are available absolutely free of charge, which is one of the most interesting functions of this service. A free access is available only for Windows and just one device, and you should reactivate the service each 3 hours and watch ads. However, these limitations are lifted in paid versions, and some new interesting options appear as well. The Premium package costs $6.99 a month, Premium Plus costs $10.99 a month and $69.99 a year. Bitcoin is also accepted.
Both VPN service and its website are very simple and clean – everything is in its place. The service does not ask for any personal user data apart from the username and password. CyberGhost supports all main desktop and mobile platforms: Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS. Paid plans allow more than 500 servers in 24 countries. The Premium Plus plan covers 5 connected devices simultaneously.
To CyberGhost’s credit, it has a strict no-log policy and no data collection upon registering. This is very solid compared to the VPN industry as a whole. Both free and paid packages offer strong 256-bit AES OpenVPN encryption, while paid packages also allow L2TP/IPSec and PPTP.
