VPN test: what is CyberGhost VPN 7 worth?

Publié le

In the world of VPN software, CyberGhost VPN is probably one of the best known. This is a program that we have often promoted in our columns. It must be said that its free offer was one of the most generous on the market and was perfect as a backup VPN. But the publisher has decided to change the way it works. It is now a premium software that can only be used after subscribing to a subscription. We had tested the software in its old form and wanted to see what CyberGhost VPN version 7 was worth.

A completely new interface

First of all, to benefit from CyberGhost VPN, you must create an account. You can’t miss this step because you also have to choose your formula: monthly, annual or multi-year subscription.

It is from the user account that it is possible to download the installer. The program is available on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and Linux. At the first launch, you must enter your login details and then the software is ready to run.

What we immediately notice is that CyberGhost has changed its interface. The large coloured tiles have been put in the cupboard and a discreet window at the bottom right of your screen replaces them. In general, the graphics of the service have become more refined and the number of windows is also lower than before.

Towards a simplification of CyberGhost VPN

From the main window, a large button allows you to connect to another VPN server. By default, the “best place” option is selected, but you can of course choose precisely another server. Moreover, the list is quite impressive with a large number of countries and servers in each country. It is difficult not to find your happiness.

Some servers are recommended depending on what you want to do with your software. Thus, CyberGhost VPN can guide you, for example if you are looking to take advantage of streaming services by changing your location or if you want to download.

When you connect to CyberGhost VPN’s network, the software displays some information about the connection used: upload rate, download rate, downloaded data, connection duration… In addition, in the list of servers, you have the number of connected users and the occupancy rate that allow you to easily switch to another less congested server.

Overall, our navigation experience has been quite satisfactory. Foreign content was unlocked when we chose the appropriate server. As with any VPN, the data rates were variable depending on the selected country.

Some bonus features

As a bonus, CyberGhost VPN brings some additional tools that are accessible in the settings, from the “connection functions” section. It includes the ability to block ads, malicious sites and online tracking. In our case, the antivirus always took the lead, so it was impossible for us to check if CyberGhost VPN was blocking the pages. On the other hand, intrusive ads such as videos that automatically launch themselves were blocked.

Conclusion

CyberGhost VPN version 7 is almost a software reset. Everything has changed compared to the previous version: the business model, the interface… There is still an efficient and easy to use software. The number of servers offered is significant and above all the connection remains stable. We will only notice the presence of a few rather clumsy translations, but the whole remains simple enough to use so that users are not disturbed. Price level, the annual subscription is offered at 5.25€ per month. It is also possible to subscribe for one month for 12.99€. The publisher regularly offers discounts as is currently the case for Black Friday.
