Your data is sought-after
When surfing the internet, every information you send and receive is compiled into readable data packets going through your Internet Service Provider (ISP.)
It’s easy for your ISP to monitor your online activity and browsing habits. In most countries, ISPs have the legal obligation to keep logs on users for up to two years. Authorities and law enforcement officials can request access to them. Most of the times, they don’t even need a warrant. And, as you can imagine, users aren’t notified that their digital data has been accessed by a third party.
In other cases, ISPs can choose to monetize your data, selling your browsing habits to advertisers wanting to target you.
Now’s the time to start encrypting your internet traffic. And you can do so with a VPN.
Get familiar with AES 256-bit encryption
Encryption is a method of encoding messages or information so that it is only accessible and readable to authorized parties.
AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard. This is a symmetric key encryption cipher, meaning that the same key used to encrypt the data is used to decrypt it locally on your device.
The fact that AES has been certified by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology as a secure and viable measure for safeguarding data made it popular. Right now, governments and armed forces worldwide use it to protect sensitive national information.
The 256-bit encryption has an encryption key length of 2265. There are 1.2 x 1077 possible combinations needed to unveil a single encryption key. That’s about 115 quattuorvigintillion possibilities.
The number is indeed a mouthful; the idea is that it’s impossible to crack. Such an attempt would require extreme computational power and some million years to succeed.
Enjoy our VPN protocols for utmost security
Our CyberGhost VPN apps are designed with privacy and security in mind. That’s why we have several VPN protocols available for you.
OpenVPN is a versatile open source VPN protocol.
It supports both TCP and UDP ports, customizing your online experience and catering to your browsing or streaming needs.
In addition to providing very strong encryption, OpenVPN is compatible with most platforms and can even be set up on routers.
Internet Key Exchange version 2 is a VPN protocol developed by Microsoft and Cisco.
This is a proprietary protocol with native support for Windows and iOS devices. Paired with the IPSec protocol, it generates powerful cryptographic algorithms and keys. It is often featured in VPN solutions for mobile devices because it’s excellent at reconnecting during network switches.
WireGuard®, a new entry on the VPN scene, is a fast protocol featuring state-of-the-art encryption capabilities.
WireGuard® mixes OpenVPN’s tight security with the IKEv2’s fast speeds. It’s an easy-to-configure and secure protocol. So, choose it for its high performance and excellent VPN protection.
Linux-loving Ghosties, take WireGuard® for a ride!
Get top-notch encryption on all your devices
You do not need to be a cryptographer or a tech guru to protect your digital life. We made it simple for you to protect your digital life with our easy-to-use apps.
We have developed VPN apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV & Fire Stick, Android TV, Linux, and even routers. It only takes one click to connect to a secure VPN server and encrypt your connection.
What’s more, with just one CyberGhost VPN subscription you can protect up to 7 devices at the same time.
Encrypt your connections with our secure VPN servers
Our extensive network of VPN servers is here to give you unbreakable security, blazing-fast speeds, and unlimited bandwidth.
Every single one of our 8900+ servers located in 91 countries seals your data behind the 256-AES encryption protocol. It’s never been easier to protect your privacy!
Yes, absolutely all VPN apps offer data encryption. The standards may vary from one provider to another, but the encryption element will always be present. If you're not looking to cut corners when it comes to your data privacy, CyberGhost VPN uses best-in-class encryption as well as leading security features along with a no-log policy to protect your data.
In layman’s terms, VPN encryption transforms a set of plain text data into something that would appear indecipherable. So, even if someone were to somehow intercept your VPN traffic, they would still not be able to see what it contains, since that information would not be understood unless they had a decryption key to translate it.
AES or Advanced Encryption Standard is the top-of-the-line algorithm used to protect your data. In fact, it is so good that even government agencies and banks use it to look after their sensitive information. The algorithm employs 128-bit, 192-bit, and 256-bit keys - with the latter being the most difficult to crack. CyberGhost VPN cuts no corners when it comes to protecting our users' information, which is why we use state-of-the-art 256-bit AES encryption.
