A message to Ghosties all around the world

“I’m not going to leave the company, I’m staying on board. I guarantee with my name that we will not track you down, and we will continue our mission to bring privacy to your life!”

After having just announced the Crossrider aquistion on the TechHub Bucharest stage, Robert Knapp, CEO of CyberGhost, took a moment to address & reassure Ghosties from around the world. CyberGhost is not going anywhere, we’ll only get better! Your private digital life is safe with us.

Now the mic goes to Robert. Here is what he had to say to CyberGhost users and fans (we were lucky to catch him right right before journalists and techies started assaulting him with questions):

  • i dont know, Im Really Sad… I do not understand, why? why? why?

    i trust Robert, he is a hero, but i dont trust crossrider group

    Everything will be bad,

    CyberGhost is not a company, it’s was like a family

    πŸ™

    • Hey, believe us, you really don’t need to worry. Crossrider will only help our family grow bigger and stronger, just wait and see. We won’t change, we promise! Just watch us. PS: did you see the latest video from Robert? He has a message just for you: https://youtu.be/sz6WbskN4ig

  • Hello,

    did Crossrider Group give you any guarantee – or at least any credible promise – that it will not try to change or weaken your privacy policy? Thanks for your help.

    • Hi, Rick! As you probably already read in our articles or saw in our video, Crossrider has indeed taken over CyberGhost, but our management, as it is and as you already know it, is staying. This means that we will maintain our business approach (the same one that has earned your trust over the years) and we will not change or weaken our privacy policy. Cheers and thanks for commenting! Should you have any further questions, we’re here. πŸ™‚

  • Thank you for your kind reply, Corina.

    But there’s still one worry: That one fine day Crossrider Group might just change their minds and to force you to change your business and pricacy approach (or, if you refuse, to displace you). I hope you made sure that won’t happen, did you?

    • Hi there, Rick! Nice to have such a well-informed and dedicated Ghostie with us. πŸ™‚ I can tell you that I really trust Robert on this decision, and as he said in his article, before choosing Crossrider, he turned down many other offers, not because he did not regard them as profitable, but because they were not granting the same trust Crossrider has in us.

      Robert is staying with CyberGhost and as long as we have him on board, our business approach stays the same. We are a privacy company and we will stay like this. Maybe you will also find this discussion between the CyberGhost CEO and the Crossrider CEO interesting: https://www.howtoweb.co/blog/2017/03/robert-knapp-cyberghost-romanian-startups/ Please watch it, it might clear some things up and maybe also help you understand better why Robert decided to sell and why this was necessary for our future development as a privacy company.

      We need to be able to keep up with the latest technologies and keep on growing. We want our users to be happy with our apps, because we want them to spread the word about them. We believe in digital freedom and that it should be accessible to anyone, so that is why we keep having a free version of our product (how many other competitors are still doing that?). But we also need capital in order to grow. πŸ™‚

      We think that this move is only for the good. Keep trusting us, we will surely not disappoint you. Should you have any further feedback, do not hesitate to drop us a line.

      Cheers and have a good day!
      C.

      • Thank you again, Corina. So I think that Robert has done something to ensure that privacy will have high priority in the future, too. Furthermore, I guess Crossrider understands that stringent privacy protection is a central part of the CG business model, and that it would not be in their own interest to thwart CG’s privacy policy

  • it’s all over, goodbye privacy

    • Hi, Paunch! As you probably already read in our article or saw in our video, Crossrider has indeed taken over CyberGhost, but our management, as it is and as you already know it, is staying. This means that we will maintain our business approach (the same one that has earned your trust over the years) and we will not change or weaken our privacy policy. So you really don’t need to worry – we will still be the best VPN provider in the world! Should you have any further questions, we’re here. πŸ™‚
