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! 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 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.
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
