CyberGhost VPN, currently blocked in Turkey

Ghosties, both CyberGhost app and website have been blocked in Turkey since yesterday. We are currently working to fix this problem. Until this issue is solved, you can use our Chrome and Firefox browser extensions which allow you to surf the web anonymously.

We’ll make sure to keep you updated on this matter!

Short history of internet censorship in Turkey

In Turkey, the government is in complete control of citizens’ access to online content and also of their level of digital privacy.

As an example, the Turkish government requires IPSs to keep the activity logs of all users for 2 years and these logs can be checked by the government at any time if they require. The web traffic is also filtered by the government and some websites are always blocked.

Over the years, internet censorship and freedom of speech have turned to be worse and worse. By 2017, Turkey hold the 155th position in the world based on freedom index.

Why is a VPN the optimal solution for internet freedom?

Many Turkish citizens have relied on VPNs in order to enjoy complete online freedom. By using CyberGhost VPN, you can hide your IP, connect to one of our numerous servers from over 50 countries and access basic websites such as YouTube, Facebook, etc. Plus, CyberGhost provides a secure connection and you can be sure that you’ll remain anonymous online thanks to our features, such as “Block online tracking”.

Dreaming of a private Xmas? Make it happen with our 83% discount

The holiday season wouldn’t really be the same without all those presents left by “Santa” underneath the Christmas tree.

But most of the times, our busy lives don’t allow us to shop for all those goodies in person and ordering gifts online seems like the most time-efficient solution.

Yet that comes at a cost too. When we shop online, we leave our personal data and bank accounts exposed to hackers, who really don’t believe in such obsolete concepts as “Christmas kindness”.

However, there is a solution and a way to keep online snoopers at bay. A CyberGhost VPN subscription enables you to stay safe from online scams. Of course, we won’t magically refill your bank account, but we will keep it protected from digital thieves.

If this is a decision you’ve been postponing lately, now it’s the time to finally invest in a truly efficient and simple online privacy solution. Since we are having our Christmas sales, you can purchase a 7-year plan for a staggering 83% discount.

Switching to the SHA256 authentication algorithm

News number 2 is that starting November 2nd, 2017, your connection to CyberGhost will be made through the SHA256 authentication algorithm. This change came due to many requests from our users in this sense. If you are using the CyberGhost app, no need to worry on any new configuration set up. However, if you want to install CyberGhost on Linux, routers and other devices, either download a new configuration file from or manually change from “auth md5” to “auth sha256” from the Security tab.
