Our new Windows VPN app, now on a device near you

In the last two years, we have been all ears! Like good and diligent Ghosties, we’ve been taking notes from your feedback, so that you can make the most of your CyberGhost experience and enjoy the perks of a fully protected and anonymized Internet connection. This is how CyberGhost 6 has come to see the light of day. Take advantage of all its features and discover what’s changed as well as what stays the same. Keep on fighting the good fight for a better, faster and safer Internet!

What’s new, in a nutshell

[drums rolling in the background ] Well, the first thing that you will notice is our refreshed, clean and sleek design. Right from the get-go, you will be invited to choose the CyberGhost service you wish to unblock. Whether you simply want to surf anonymously, unblock streaming services, protect your Internet connection (WiFi or network), torrent anonymously, unblock basic websites or choose your own VPN service, you can do so, with the simple click of a button.

Here’s what our new app looks like:

CG 6 for windows


Nice choice of colors, right? But, as you already know, there is more to us, Ghosties, than just looks. Let’s click on each profile and discover the goodies that it unlocks!

Surf Anonymously

This profile activates all protection components and starts your preferred browser in incognito mode. You are invited to manually add extra features as well, but a default selection has already been made in our new Windows VPN app, so that you can fully enjoy the perks of the free Internet without worrying too much about technicalities.

Unblock Streaming

Whether you are on vacation, on a business trip or simply wish to unlock content that is blocked in your country, this CyberGhost service will surely do the trick. You can now watch your favorite TV series or listen to the music that you love, regardless of local restrictions. Simply select the streaming channel you wish to unlock (some examples are YouTube, Netflix and ESPN) or even add your own to the list. It’s really that easy!

Network / WiFi Protection

Hacking WiFi networks is literally child’s play, since a 7-year old recently did this in less than 11 minutes and our professional security specialist hacked a Hotel’s WiFi network in 1 minute. With CyberGhost, protecting yourself from the dangers of unencrypted WiFi hotspots is even easier. Simply opt for this profile and you will be sure that your personal data is not recorded or intercepted. We will connect you to the nearest VPN server, as soon as your device enters an unencrypted hotspot.

Torrent Anonymously

The dangers of torrenting are widely known. No matter how careful you are, there’s always the risk of downloading a bit more than what you had bargained for. CyberGhost takes your anonymity very seriously and, with the simple selection of this profile, you can rest assured that your online actions are not being tracked. Schedule your favorite torrent programs to start together with our new Windows VPN app and download anonymously. But never disregard the torrenting laws of a country.

Unblock basic websites

Woodrow Wilson once said that “Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is the history of resistance.” Take matters into your own hands and connect to a VPN server located in a non-restricted country, that will give you free access to platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Choose my VPN server

More advanced Ghosties will love this profile from our freshly released Windows VPN app. This allows you to customize your connection by choosing a country or server manually, from a wide palette of options: most users, fewest users, fastest, NoSpy servers and servers optimized for gaming or torrents.

Full speed ahead!

  • The new Windows app is great, but Windows 10 sucks! Do you have any plans to create application also for Linux users?

    • Hi, Luke! Thanks for your feedback. We were not aware of what PureVPN did at the moment of development. We don’t know when PureVPN launched its latest version, but we have been working on this one for a while now. We hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

  • Hello.

    Since shortly after v6 was released, I have been unable to connect to the VPN. I am unable to even open the program unless I first connect to another VPN. And once I attempt to connect to a Cyberghost server, I wait forever without being able to connect, until I disconnect from the other VPN, at which point Cyberghost says it is either blocked, or I’m not connected to the Internet.

    Since my Internet connection is working, I believe the problem is either with Cyberghost or with my ISP, since cyberghostvpn.com and proxies in general are blocked in the country. I have tried everything, from uninstalling and reinstalling, using TCP instead of the UDP default, trying different servers, restarting my PC, etc.

    If I can’t use the VPN now, I most certainly won’t be able to once I sign up for Premium. What help can you give?

    Thank you.

  • hi, i have issues using my existing id on my same old computer that i just re- formatted. please what do i do to keep my old ghost id and keep making my monthly payment. please reply as i await your good office to help find a solution to this.

  • To quote yourselves…”[drums rolling in the background ]”

    And once again an update has broken my connection…

    Starting today, every time I open CyberGhost I immediately get the message:

    “Service Not Reachable”
    “The CyberGhost login system is not reachable or your internet connection is not active. Please try again later”

    Nothing has changed with my connection or firewall settings and I never had this problem until today

    Do you do any indepth testing before pushing out an update? I work in a similar industry and if we release an alpha update that broke our customers connections we would be shut down in no time… smh

  • Hi! Since CyberGhost v6, the app just crashes when connecting and I am not able to get the benefit of my Premium Account due to crash.

    • Hi Flori & thanks for your message! For the moment, we don’t see the point in having a server in Turkey right now, a country where social media networks are constantly blocked and VPNs are not welcomed (many VPNs are already blocked there). Usually people from Turkey connect to our VPN to get passed the ban in their country. Freedom of speech is very restricted there and we don’t think that it would be easy to have servers in Turkey, since they don’t respect user privacy.
