E-shops have your sensitive data

It’s easier than ever to fill up your digital cart and get things. To be fair, you probably spend more time deciding what to buy than the actual check-out itself.

Online sales fuel the world of e-commerce, one transaction at a time. But in this whole process, you’re also easily giving away sensitive information like your name, card details, shipping address, and phone number.

If tracked, this data could easily compromise your bank account, and your money could be stolen. And if that’s not bad enough, if your data gets into the wrong hands, you’re at risk for identity theft.

Keep cyber criminals at bay

There are people out there interested in stealing your money. And some of them can actually pull it off. Just like you lock your door and look after your wallet, now’s the time to start keeping your financial data secure.

The good news is that cyber hygiene is now more accessible and user-friendly than ever. And all you need to protect your bank transactions is VPN software.

A VPN, short for virtual private network, reroutes your internet traffic through VPN servers. This also hides your IP address and adds a layer of anonymity to your outgoing internet traffic.

On top of that, with a VPN, your entire connection is encrypted. So, no one can track your digital transactions.

Stay safe on public Wi-Fi networks

Public Wi-Fis are notoriously famous for having security problems, using outdated software, and being prone to vulnerabilities. The networks you use in cafés, airports, or hotels usually lack a secure set up or even a password.

Your private financial data is at risk when you’re on an unsecured Wi-Fi, even if you use your bank’s native apps. While they offer better security than the browser, if your internet traffic gets intercepted, your bank account details can still be easily read by third parties.

You need to step up your game and make sure you secure your devices before handling sensitive data online.

Get a VPN app before you do any transaction

To keep your entire digital life private, we developed VPN apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV & Fire Stick, Android TV, Linux and even routers! Now you can safeguard your wireless network security with just one click!

What’s more, just one CyberGhost VPN subscription lets you protect up to 7 devices at the same time.

It’s never been more comfortable using a VPN for online banking!

Enjoy complete online anonymity

With CyberGhost VPN, you get access to the highest privacy standards, and your data is sealed behind the 256-AES military-grade encryption protocol.

You can also customize CyberGhost VPN and choose between the IKEv2, L2TP, and OpenVPN protocols. You can even take it one step further set your own privacy triggers in the Smart Rules tab in the app.

Our DNS-leak protection and kill switch always keep your online transactions secure. And, no matter what happens, we always make sure your IP is hidden so that your digital activities are shielded from any snoopers.

CyberGhost: your VPN for online banking

There is no shortage of threats lurking in the cyber world. With the increasing amount of compromised data and security breaches, you need a secure VPN to protect your connection and your sensitive information.

Our VPN servers are optimized to give you the best security, speed, and unlimited bandwidth.

With more than 8900 VPN servers in over 91 countries, we’re always ready to keep your banking transactions away from any prying eyes.


A VPN should feature 256-bit AES encryption as well as a strict no-logs policy. Ideally, a VPN should have an automatic Wi-Fi protection feature as well as a built-in kill switch that would terminate your internet connection in case your VPN drops. CyberGhost VPN ticks all these boxes, making it one of the best tools for online banking.

Absolutely. CyberGhost has dedicated apps for numerous platforms, including Android and iOS. Just turn on your VPN before accessing your mobile banking app, and you're good to go.

Banks may get suspicious if you're accessing your account from different IP addresses every time you log in. Therefore, we recommend using a server from your home country every time you're looking to access your online bank account.

A VPN is the ultimate defense system against cyber-criminals looking to steal your sensitive data. It is incredibly useful, especially when using public Wi-Fi networks and you need to access your account without any risk. A VPN will create an encrypted connection between you and your online banking website that will protect your credit card details, online identity, and other sensitive information from anyone who would try to steal them.
You can, but the question you want to be asking yourself is: do I really want to risk it? The safety features, or better said the lack thereof, will only give you a false sense of security. As if that wasn’t enough, one of the main ways free VPN providers make money is by selling their users' data. So, would you really put your banking details in the hands of a free VPN provider?

For a safer online banking experience make sure to:

  • Steer clear of public Wi-Fi connections
  • Never share your banking details with anyone
  • Only use your bank's official app
  • Enable two-factor authentication if your bank offers it
  • Avoid saving credit card details on your browser
  • Install the latest updates for your operating system.
