  1. DNS Leak Test

No leak. The IP expected was exactly from what I am connecting to, a Singapore server from CyberGhost.

  1. WebRTC Test

CyberGhost-WebRTC-Leak-Test

All in good hand here. No surprise from the CyberGhost VPN.

  1. Misc – Ad Blocker

Though there was an Ad-blocker feature, I find it was not working most of the time. It can block certain ads but Google ads will slip through most of the time. Had acknowledged and found out the problem with CyberGhost support. Below is their reply, feel free to check out.

  1. CyberGhost Server Farm

There’s no way they could own all the 6500 VPN servers around the world right? I emailed and find out the answer with CyberGhost.

Turn out I was half true that they do own all the NoSpy servers which were located in Romania and not the rest.

How many NoSpy servers that they owned actually have? Well, they didn’t give out a number. I’m assuming not many since it’s only in Romania.

Final Word

There you have it, my full examination with a score for CyberGhost.

If you put them side by side with the likes of ExpressVPN, Surfshark, or NordVPN, they certainly look average.

Despite so, they are a decent paid VPN with a large number of users around the world.

The reason is none other than their ability to stream Netflix and P2P without a hitch.
