If you are looking for a web proxy that has an easy-to-use platform, CyberGhost is one of the top options. CyberGhost has 511 servers is 30 different locations, giving you some flexibility in choosing your server based on your usage needs.
The software is easy to install, and if you need help, an installation guide is available on the service's website. The user dashboard is exceptionally easy to use and one of the most user-friendly dashboards available on the lineup. You can run five devices simultaneously on one account, which means you can keep your household computers and mobile devices safe from prying eyes.
While this company keeps some logs, it does not log your personal data. CyberGhost separates your usage from personal data, so your browsing cannot be connected back to you. This IP proxy does keep logs on overall data usage for the servers to measure server quality and schedule maintenance or improvements.
Help and support from CyberGhost is about average. While the company lacks live chat and 24/7 support, it does have a knowledgebase with a problem-solver tool that helps you analyze and solve your problems with the platform. The company requests that you use this tool before trying to contact customer support. It is a good thing this feature is available since in our trials, we found email support to be slow to respond. When you need help and answers regarding your proxy services, waiting is not usually an option.
This service uses some of the best proxy tunneling protocols on the market: PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN. It also uses a 256-bit encryption. This encryption bit is one of the most secure and one that even the government uses for its classified documents. Surprisingly, this IP proxy does not use SSL or TSL as part of its security system, but instead uses its own technique called Anti-Fingerprinting. While Anti-Fingerprinting provides security, it is not an industry standard security feature that has been proven repeatedly to work.
This easy-to-install proxy browsing service lets you surf anonymously while protecting your data and identity. It comes with a problem-solver tool and effective tunneling protocols. CyberGhost VPN does a good job keeping your online interactions safe and anonymous.
