After reading my study on how VPNs work, you too have decided to take advantage of such a service to protect your online activities and surf more serenely. VPNs (acronym for Virtual Private Network, which is "virtual private network") are in fact private networks, accessible only to authorized users, who work in Internet: hence the adjective "virtual", which indicates the absence of physical connections between the PCs belonging to the latter. VPNs can be used for a variety of purposes: to hide your online activities and avoid ISP tracking, to root out data tracking by attackers, and to bypass regional censorship and / or restrictions. There are several to choose from, but not all are equally reliable - that's why I decided to talk to you today about CyberGhost VPN, one of the most complete and safe services in the sector.

Thanks to 256-bit military-grade encryption and various supported VPN protocols, CyberGhost VPN avoids monitoring the online activities of users by Internet providers (who even have a legal obligation to keep records of their clients for at least two years) and allows you to browse safely. It also allows you to camouflage your IP address, access geo-restricted resources (including streaming services), and avoid the risks associated with detecting Wi-Fi networks (since all connection data is securely encrypted). It also protects the privacy of users by not recording any of the activities carried out by the latter.

Another important thing to note is that CyberGhost VPN can be used on a wide range of devices, including PCs, mobile phones, tablets, TVs, and routers, and it has thousands of servers scattered in 90 countries around the world. Their prices are extremely affordable, with the possibility of trying the service for free for 24 hours or more. Interesting, right?
