  1. Misc – Ad Blocker

Though there was an Ad-blocker feature, I find it was not working most of the time. It can block certain ads but Google ads will slip through most of the time. Had acknowledge and find out the problem with CyberGhost support. Below is their reply, feel free to check out.

  1. CyberGhost Server Farm

There’s no way they could owned all the 6500 VPN servers around the world right? I emailed and find out the answer with CyberGhost.

Turn out I was half true that they do own all the NoSpy servers which were located in Romania and not the rest.

How many NoSpy servers that they owned actually? Well, they didn’t gave out a number. I’m assuming not many since it’s only in Romania.

Hello Joe,

Regarding your questions:

1) Does CyberGhost own all the servers they served? Not all, we do own all the NoSpy servers.

2) Any GPS spoofing for mobile devices? – no, this sort of things are illegal anyway.

3) Will CyberGhost scan any of the downloaded files for safety? – What exactly do you mean? CG does not offer any services of scanning the downloaded files.

 Let me know if you have other questions!

Regards,

Alex

Final Word

There you have it, my full examination with a score for CyberGhost.

If you put them side by side with the like of ExpressVPN, Surfshark, or NordVPN, they certainly look average.

Despite so, they are a decent paid VPN with a large number of users around the world.

The reason being none other than their ability to stream Netflix and P2P without a hitch.
