Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is CyberGhost – The All-in-one online privacy app.
What is it?
CyberGhost is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) app that helps you stay safe online and retain your personal privacy.
How can it help me?
I’ve written before about the importance of taking cyber-security seriously. If you’re in any doubt of the severity of the problem, have a look at the Norse Attack Map – a real-time cyber attack map that makes sobering viewing!
Cyber-Security affects everyone, from businesses to individuals. For instance, most people are not aware that…
- When you browse websites, you leave a trail of your activity that can be followed.
- When you use the Internet over public Wi-Fi, you’re exposing yourself to having personal data taken.
- Many content providers block content based-on your country, preventing you from accessing it.
CyberGhost is an all-in-one VPN app that helps you with these challenges.
For instance, when you use CyberGhost VPN, your website browsing activity is encrypted — meaning you leave no trail of your activity.
You can use CyberGhost when you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, to make sure any data you send over the Wi-Fi is encrypted, preventing others from stealing it.
You can also use CyberGhost to fool content providers into thinking you’re accessing their content from another country, meaning content that might be blocked for you in your home country becomes available to you via CyberGhost.
CyberGhost is also one of the few VPN services that allow you to download Torrents anonymously.
In short, CyberGhost allows you to remain anonymous and safe online.
How much does it cost?
CyberGhost costs £10.99/month, although there is currently a flash sale offering 18-months CyberGhost subscription for £2.75/month.
