CyberGhost is an easy-to-use VPN service that can protect your online privacy and block hackers or prying eyes from targeting sensitive data on your Android device. In this guide, we will walk you through the complete installation process of the CyberGhost for Android app on your Smartphone or Tablet device.
Select the subscription package that that best fits your budget or needs then proceed to create your account with your desired username and password.
You can buy and manually create your CyberGhost account from any device including your computer or laptop.
Now that you already have a working CyberGhost account, the first step you need to take to start using the VPN service is to download the CyberGhost for Android App from the App store. Open Google Play on your Android device, search for an app called CyberGhost VPN. Select the app dashboard and hit the 'Install' button.
For successful operations on your device, the app will require permission to In-app purchases, Identity, Photos/Media/Files, Wi-Fi connection information, and Others. Select 'Accept' and the app will be downloaded and installed automatically.
You should note that CyberGhost have a strict no-logging policy and DO NOT track your personal data or analyze user behavior. The permissions granted to access your Android device serve solely for the purpose of basic app operations.
After the installation is completed, select 'Open' to launch it from Google Play. Alternatively, navigate to your apps menu, locate the CyberGhost app and launch it from there.
Select the options button (it’s the three horizontal bars icon in the upper left corner of your phone) to log into the CyberGhost account using the credentials you created earlier.
As soon as you log into the app, you are ready to secure your Android device by simply selecting the Start button and you’ll be secured with the default settings. If you’re interested in checking out the extra features aside from the basic operations of anonymizing and encrypting your Internet activities, click on the options button again and select settings.
CyberGhost includes additional features such as blocking malicious websites, blocking tracking, and data compression. You can simply swipe them on or off as desired.
You can also select your virtual location while you’re still on the settings tab by manually selecting the country you want to connect to. This will allow you to access those geographically restricted websites such as Hulu in the US or the BBC iPlayer in the UK.
After you’re done, hit the start and you’re good to go.
