caught-with-his-pants-downWhen using a *free VPN service such as Hotspot Shield, CyberGhost or Security Kiss always double check that your IP address is actually hidden.

Many free VPN’s offer a link to ‘test your protection’ after installation taking you to websites which tell you that you have a new IP, location etc but on further testing it is sometimes the case that your IP has not changed on certain IP locator sites such as whatismyip.com even if the VPN has told you that you have a different location, as a precaution follow the instructions below.

Install and run your free VPN, go to whatismyip.com and copy your ip address from there then go to iplocation.net and enter the copied ip address from whatismyip.com and it will give you the location of that IP address. If you are satisfied that the IP address does not belong to your ISP, fine, if not hang fire, try another free VPN and run the test again.

After many tests on ip locator sites one of the most accurate when using free VPN’s seems to be whatismyip.com.

Information

Why surf anonymously?

Everyone is curious by nature. Everyone likes gossiping about others and swapping news. But no one would really like to be secretly spied on. That’s why we close doors whenever we want to be left undisturbed or chat on the phone with friends without anyone listening in.

CyberGhost - Anonym surfen

There is little privacy on the Internet. Website operators would like to know what you’re interested in. Businesses want to know what you’re up to on the Internet. Public authorities, secret services etc. want to know as much as they can about their citizens. It’s time for you to protect yourself and your privacy!

Would you like to be told by your bank some time in the future: ”Your Internet transactions are subject to a credit limit.“? You are fully entitled to decide yourself to whom you wish to provide which information about yourself and your actions.

You leave behind a load of trails when you surf on the Internet, but not only on your PC. Each access provider knows exactly when you visited which websites. Many websites save your address and the details of what you looked at.

However, you certainly wouldn’t like it if your neighbour knew which magazines you read and what you buy and where.

Never forget: your computer’s unique IP address can provide such details as your name, address, age, telephone number and more.

What information do we leave behind?

Any time anyone visits a web server, they always unwittingly leave behind their IP address as an indication of their visit. It is also specified exactly in the server logs which content was transferred to this IP address, which content was downloaded and where on the website which link was clicked. The website is also often informed as to where you have come from.

CyberGhost VPN at your service!

CyberGhost is an important tool for protecting your privacy. CyberGhost VPN replaces the externally visible IP address, which users have received from their provider when they dial up to connect to the Internet, with a CyberGhost VPN IP address. The CyberGhost user shares this IP address with a number of other users. This procedure ensures that the CyberGhost VPN IP address should not be assigned to one particular CyberGhost VPN user.

Communication between the CyberGhost VPN user’s computer and the anonymization servers is also particularly well protected to prevent any eavesdropping on data transfers. This protection is set up in 2 steps when establishing the connection. 1024-bit SSL encryption is used when establishing the connection. In this case, a 128-bit AES key is negotiated, which is unique for each connection. The actual communication takes place via this AES key.

Easy to use

The procedure involved sounds very complicated, but we have actually made it very simple. Take the following few steps to make yourself anonymous:

  • Download and install the software
  • Start the software
  • Create an account if you are using the software for the first time
  • Log in to the CyberGhost VPN system
  • Connect to the service you want
  • DONE… you’re now surfing anonymously.

About the new technology

Unlike normal proxies, CyberGhost VPN offers the highest level of security with maximum user-friendliness. Instead of searching for new proxies every day and configuring the browser manually, you only require a single click to be able to surf anonymously with CyberGhost VPN. This not only protects the browser, but also all the programs running on your PC.

This includes, for instance, browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, etc.), messengers (ICQ, MSN Messenger, Skype, etc.), download clients (HTTP, FTP, BitTorrent, etc.) and games (WoW, CS:S, etc.).

Using VPN technologies and separate servers enables you to reach speeds with us which normal proxies or cascades can never offer.

Why not try us out?

Simply download the client here, create an account, log in, connect and away you go surfing anonymously, playing online games, etc.

(The free service is limited to just 1GB per month now)
