iOS -bun

Your entire online experience is about to change today: The coolest security iOS App is here!

We’re very happy to announce you that we launched our new iOS app and we truly believe it’s the coolest security app you can find. We’ve worked hard to make sure of that. Join our competition to get our awesome prizes.

CyberGhost is the first app to transform VPN technology into an easy to use lifestyle product.

We’ve improved connection time and now it literally connects in 1 second. This new app was created with all of you in mind: casual internet users, super-advanced privacy enthusiasts, old school techies, the curious geeks, all time travelers, movie fans, journalists, NGOs. Did we forget to mention YOU? Don’t worry, you’ll love it!


Discover what you can do with CyberGhost iOS App

  1. WiFi Protection

CyberGhost App will protect you every time you are using a free unsecured WiFi hotspot (most of the public ones are unsecured, yes, Starbucks’s WiFi too, sorry).

What’s even cooler is that CyberGhost is the first app to activate itself whenever your phone tries to connect to unsecured WiFi networks. You have your own hi-tech bodyguard now.

How WiFi Protection works?

When you activate the WiFi protection profile, your entire internet connection is encrypted. This way, no hacker will be able to access or steal your personal information including email accounts, Facebook or Instagram profiles or even your credit card information

Then start using this profile every time you are on free, unsecured WiFi connections in airports, hotels, restaurants, cafes or clubs.

  1. Anonymous Browsing

When activated, it hides your IP address and your internet connection is military-grade encrypted – we use the strongest encryption type, 256-bit AES.

How it works?

I think you will be happy to hear that it actually blocks all online tracking behavior and you become immune to data spying by website owners, advertisers, and other online snoopers.

As you already know, we have a No Logs policy so you will leave no traces online.

Our IP Sharing technology proved to be the best way to preserve our user’s anonymity.

This profile also blocks cookies and malicious websites so you can have a really smooth and anonymous online experience.

  1. Secured Streaming

Streaming movies and online series is the new black and has become an essential part of our daily lives.

Who goes to sleep without watching at least one Game of Thrones episode?

But we also know how important it is to get a secured streaming experience and for that we’ve curated the largest list of streaming websites that are 100% guaranteed to work.  From Youtube to Netflix, BBC, ABC, Hulu, Fox, Comedy Central and many more that we invite you to discover.

How it works?

We’ve taken care and simplified the connection process: you click on the desired website from the list and you are connected.

If you are an expat or travelling outside the country you can take CyberGhost with you – it doesn’t take any extra luggage space and it will make your airport stay a fun experience. Just sayin’.

  1. Save Money

For this profile, CyberGhost uses data compression for all your traffic which makes for some pretty savings in terms of how much mobile data you use.

We can’t wait until you start using our App and get the coolest secured experience online.

Remember that all CyberGhost basic profiles and features are free. For the more advanced settings you simply have to upgrade to Premium.

What is the FBI trying to achieve?

In the past few days, media reported about how parts of the US IT industry resist the espionage plans of the US government – triggered by Apple’s refusal to hack the phone of a suspect and prospectively install backdoors for secret services. What exactly is Apple required to do? And why is the company’s resistance so important? Also concerning VPNs …

For the first time in history, the government asks a company not just to assist in the investigation of an offense, request that no one would actually complain about; but publicly demanding Apple to develop a completely new software that makes the onsite security of its devices and features superfluous. This demand is affecting the security features that impact all Apple users and anyone who communicates with Apple’s users, and which are essential in the prevention of digital crimes. Bottom line, the company is forced to develop a master key that unlocks every single iOS device.


What would be the new changes? If FBI is successful, three major changes should be implemented by Apple:

  • Currently, iOS can be adjusted so that it clears the internal keys after 10 unsuccessful password entries. FBI wants the software without this feature.
  • After each unsuccessful password entry to unlock a device, iOS prolongs the time until another attempt can be made. The FBI wants the new software to accept an infinite number of entries without breaks.
  • iOS requires that passwords are entered manually. The FBI would like the possibility to enter passwords electronically, so one can run automatically a variety of options in a short period of time.

If FBI’s requests will be approved, not only would Apple suffer of a bigger image loss than the one triggered by the Snowden revelations, but there would arise a fatal situation for citizens and businesses alike. By default, built-in back doors would not only be available for the US government, but potentially for others as well, especially for known enemies of the western countries like Iran, North Korea and Russia, but also the competing national economies, hackers and cybercriminals.

It’s rather naïve to believe that for the sake of all citizens, governments are the only ones trying to keep an eye on encrypted data. This rather reveals how much the thinking of law enforcement agencies has developed in only one direction: understanding total surveillance with themselves as luminaries of the planet, morally unassailable and almost uncontrollable anyway.

Another step towards 1984 2.0

And it would be only the first step, because once the protection of devices is gone, VPNs are just the next target on the hit list. If Apple’s refusal fails in court, the enforcement of backdoors for encrypted Internet access via virtual networks is only a matter of time. And besides: US companies operate globally. What arguments will be used for denying the Chinese government to do the same? And the Iranian? Who then has the last word when it comes to separate the evil from the good? And how exactly is the Russian mass surveillance different from the US one?


Data Compression: How to Save Money and Use Less Data

Ninja Ghostie

Big Data and data compression are two of the main concerns of the current online world, along with security and privacy. People as well as apps, streaming services, and even social media sites are becoming more and more data-oriented.

Additionally, the data plan cost for the average internet users is rapidly going up. Smartphones have also evolved to make greater use of data so it is now more important than ever to know how we consume data (a.k.a. how we browse the web and what we watch online) and how we can control this consumption on our mobiles so it doesn’t get too expensive.

If you use your mobile phone as a hotspot for your laptop or other devices, we will explain below the benefits of using the data compression feature.
