Is my privacy protected with CyberGhost?

The CyberGhost VPN service is based in Romania, and you can be confident that Romania is widely recognized for its privacy-friendly environment. As a policy, CyberGhost does not keep any log data that might enable your IP address or your data content traffic to be interfered with. This means that CyberGhost does not log any information that might be used to identify it as yours, but if you are wondering if it hides 100% of logs, just know that the security level is so high, that no one will raise any eyebrows.

CyberGhost allows you to hide your IP address and blocks all kinds of online tracking, which helps to extend your anonymity. It also has a Geo-spoofing feature that takes anonymity to a whole new level. Not only will you be anonymous online, but no one will know when you’re online. CyberGhost also has a kill switch feature which guarantees that there will be no leaks whatsoever, and should anything fail, your Internet connection will shut down entirely.

CyberGhost goes a long way to show its dedication to openness and transparency by publishing a transparency report, and you can also rely on CyberGhost to report all incidents. This gives us a good insight into the type of issues that are faced by great VPN companies such as CyberGhost, and the extent to which they will go to ensure their users enjoy a great deal of privacy.

How much is CyberGhost? Is there a free trial?

CyberGhost pricing is very budget-friendly as is starts as low as $5.99 per month, but it drops significantly if you opt to go for the annual subscription which helps you save about 77%, which is especially great for businesses. For its premium service, CyberGhost offers a full 7-day free trial and a 30-day money back guarantee, with no questions asked. Payment for CyberGhost is through PayPal, credit card, debit card, as well as direct debit, depending on the options available in each country; however CyberGhost also accepts payment in Bitcoin.

CyberGhost speed test

CyberGhost offers permission for p2p torrents, and an unlimited amount of bandwidth in all of its VPN options, without any speed restrictions. You are therefore able to stream on Amazon Prime and TV, download files, and online shopping, among other common tasks online. A number of people who used CyberGhost have raised complaints regarding slow speeds, and I can confirm that CyberGhost doesn’t noticeably affect upload speeds, however, its downloading speed deteriorates by approximately 42%.

What is customer service like at CyberGhost?

CyberGhost provides direct support through a 24/7 live chat, with French and German native support.

Features

CyberGhost provides the following features;

  • WIFI protection
  • 24/7 live chat with German and French native support
  • Allows for up to 5 devices simultaneously
  • Offers OpenVPN support, IKEv2 VPN protocols and L2TP/IPsec.
  • 1319+ available servers in 61 countries globally
  • Website exemption and split-tunneling
  • Permits P2P on selected servers
  • Works with BBC iPlayer and Netflix

How safe is CyberGhost?

CyberGhost mostly uses OpenVPN protocol in order to secure connections with the following settings:

Control channel: RSA-4096 key encryption, SHA384 hash authentication and an AES-256 cipher.

Data channel: an AES-256-CBC cipher with SHA256 hash authentication.

Perfect forward secrecy is provided by an ECDH-4096 key exchange.

Bottom Line

CyberGhost is a great VPN service overall, especially when it comes to Amazon Prime. Its features are quite generous and impressive. However, I was not very impressed with the speed compared to other VPN services, but I would still highly recommend CyberGhost.

ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN has been proven to be one of the best and most reliable VPN service across the world.

Many have called it the fastest VPN on earth, and its speed speaks for itself with a big network of over 2000 worldwide VPN servers.

ExpressVPN goes a long way to back up all the hype by providing a 30-day money back guarantee, which portrays nothing less than confidence. Their no activity and no connection log policy ensure that you can browse, download, or stream anything with absolute anonymity guaranteed.

When it comes to security, ExpressVPN spares no expense to ensure that you are protected from hacking of any kind using the 256-bit AES encryption, kill switch, DNS/IPv6 leak protection and split tunneling. However, ExpressVPN is not for people with a strict budget, but it is going to be worth your while.

With about 60 server locations, 2254 servers, 2254 IP addresses, no log records, 6 devices per license, and a kill switch, what more would you be looking for? NordVPN is easy to use and easy to install, and their customer support service is pretty much above other VPNs, even though they don’t give you a reason to want to contact their customer support because their service is nearly flawless. Payments for NordVPN are accepted through PayPal, visa, American express, Paymentwall, and Bitcoin, which makes it even easier because of the many options. All this combined with the 30-day money back guarantee, means there is no reason not to try it out.

PrivateVPN

Ease of Use     4.8 / 5.0

Pricing            4.0 / 5.0

Reliability & Support           4.9 / 5.0

PrivateVPN has relatively good ratings and has gained popularity over time. This is accredited to its reliability as a VPN service with about 52 server locations, approximately 80 servers, 4000 IP addresses, 6 devices per license, a kill switch, and no logs policy.

Installation is relatively easy, and payment is accepted through master card, JCB, visa, American express, Diners club international, and Discover.

Their customer support is not as impressive as it ought to be, since it takes them about 10 solid hours to respond to a concern, but given its very competitive pricing, it might turn out to be a great experience, provided they don’t give you any reason to want to contact customer support. So, fingers crossed, but it is a great VPN service regardless.

VyprVPN

Features        4.5 / 5.0

Ease of Use     4.6 / 5.0

Pricing            4.0 / 5.0

Reliability & Support           4.7 / 5.0

VyprVPN offers nearly the same features as most VPNs. These features include reliable privacy with their partial no logs policy while you stream, browse, or download content online. It has about 65 server locations, 700 servers, and about 20000 IP addresses. VyprVPN allows for 5 devices and has a kill switch, which let’s be honest, is kind of a must-have for a good VPN service. Its pricing is pretty reasonable, and they have a 30-day money back guarantee.

VyprVPN is basically an okay VPN service, with good customer support and security, but hopefully, as it expands, there will be more generosity when it comes to  their server locations and number of devices allowed.

Conclusively, all these VPNs are great for Amazon Prime, but you have to pick the one that works best for you. I think finding the perfect balance of effectiveness, reliability, good speed, and great price, is the only way to figure out what works for you, so think wisely.
