CyberGhost review: Price, performance, features compared

&

Last updated:  

Quick verdict: CyberGhost does little to stand out in the crowded market of VPN providers, but it gets the job done just fine.

  • Impressive features for the asking price
  • Dedicated apps for Linux, MacOS, Windows, Android, iOS and more
  • User-friendly interface
  • Not the fastest VPN we've tested
  • Lacking in advanced features
  • Fewer servers than some leading VPNs

CyberGhost will no doubt lure many folks in with one canny marketing line: "With CyberGhost's VPN proxy you can bypass the filters setup at your school, university or workplace and access YouTube and social media." Boom! Sold. No longer will those in charge get to dictate how you spend your lunch (read: actual work) hours.

In essence, CyberGhost does what pretty much all VPNS do best: it allows you to leap over the pesky geofences put up to country-restrict the TV and movies you really want to see.

How we score our reviews

CyberGhost isn't packed with advanced features and it's not the fastest VPN on the block either. On the other hand, it's user friendly, affordable and comes with some handy tools for the security conscious. It also allows you to connect 7 simultaneous connections which should be enough for most families.

Where to buy

CyberGhost offers three different plans. The smallest of toe dips is a 1-month setup of $18.49. You can get that rate cheaper by locking in for a 6-month plan that'll squash your monthly payment down to $10.99. However, the best offer on the board is the 18-month plan which costs $3.99 a month.

CyberGhost offers a wide variety of ways to pay. You've got PayPal and the usual major credit card options, plus there's an anonymity-preserving bitcoin option.

It's worth noting the 45-day refund policy applies to the last 2 plans in the list. The 1-month plan only has a 14-day money-back guarantee.
