I'm currently test-driving CyberGhost VPN on both my Mac and Windows machines. The pricing is excellent and the reviews were positive. It's #4 on Tom's Hardware list of the best VPNs. However, I'm noticing two issues that are making me a little crazy, or crazier than normal. Frequently, like several times and hour, I'll get a notification that the server can't be reached. Yet switching to a different wireless network resolves the issue, which leads me to believe it's not a server issue but rather that it's rendering the network it was using useless, and now it need another network. Could be a port issue or...? And redirects never load. At times even direct links have problems, but trying to open a linked page from within a website always fails. So are these issues unique to CyberGhost or are they fundamental issues with modern VPNs? I understand the concept of VPNs but have always shied away from using them, opting instead for safe browsing practices and a good AV app. But now that I'm no longer working and will be connecting from restaurants and coffee shops (when we're once again able to do that) I thought I'd look into VPNs. Most reviews are unreliable, being more paid advertisements than honest reviews. I want one that works on both platforms I use, doesn't log at all, and offers a good number of servers and countries. I'm only using it on my iPhone, laptops, and tablets. So what are you all using or would recommend? Any suggestions on settings to change to improve performance?
