Location & security

CyberGhost started in Germany, but their headquarters are now in Bucharest, Romania. CyberGhost claims that according to Romanian law, they are under no obligation to keep tabs on their users. Also, Romania is not a member of any surveillance alliance, like the 5 Eyes, 9 Eyes, or 14 Eyes alliances. Because of this, they are under no obligation to collaborate with any foreign intelligence agencies. The company shows a Transparency Report but currently there is no independent audit report as other VPN companies.

It takes just one click to hide your IP address and replace it with one from their network. In addition, you’ll share your IP with other Ghosties connected to the same server, therefore your digital steps can never lead back to you. CyberGhost VPN servers are designed with the 256-bit military-grade encryption at all times. AES has been certified by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology as a secure and viable measure for safeguarding data made it popular. Right now, governments and armed forces worldwide use it to protect sensitive national information.

In addition CyberGhost supports OpenVPN, IKEv2 (VPN protocol developed by Microsoft and Cisco) and WireGuard®, a new entry on the VPN scene (a fast protocol featuring state-of-the-art encryption capabilities).
