I forgot to mention that one of the main features you need to look for in a VPN is a Kill Switch. As is the case, connections come and go and in the case of VPN's, when you lose a connection to the VPN servers and disconnect, you may still be online surfing the net, buying stuff and what have you without the added VPN protection you want. With a Kill Switch, when it's enabled, when you lose the VPN connection, it kills everything, including your online WiFi connection. This is to protect you from carrying onward under the assumption you still have a VPN connection. Now, going into CyberGhost, I can't find any Kill Switch options. It may be there under a different name (not likely) or it's not included in the Free Version. The walkaround way is just to be aware of your VPN disconnecting. If it does, stop surfing and reconnect before resuming any surfing.
