Download of the day: CyberGhost VPN

Protect your identity and your data

Cyberghost VPN

In these dark times of hackers intercepting data, governments spying on their citizens’ perfectly legal activities and YouTube geo-blocking videos in some countries because of record companies’ nastygrams a virtual private networking app, or VPN for short, is increasingly important.

There are many VPN apps out there, but very few that rhyme with toast. More importantly, CyberGhost VPN is really, really good.

Why you need it

The internet can be a dangerous place, and if you’re sharing data you don’t want to fall into the wrong hands then it’s a scary place too. Sadly we think the need for VPNs for everyday browsing is just going to keep on growing.  

VPNs are routinely used to protect companies’ important files and emails, and the same tech is just as effective in ensuring nobody hacks your laptop when you’re on a public Wi-Fi hotspot. In many cases you also get the happy bonus of bypassing geographical restrictions on things such as online video services, where a clip might be licensed for viewing in one country but not in another, and on websites that really, really, really don’t want you to see anything other than the one for the country you’re in.
