CyberGhost 5 VPN
It's easy to feel you're anonymous online, but the reality is very different; there are a host of tricks sites can use to find out more about you. Giving away this information can have very real consequences, perhaps with access to certain websites being blocked because your computer's IP address identifies the country where it's located.
Install CyberGhost, though, and the program sets up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for you, routing all your web traffic through one of CyberGhost's servers, with your choice of country and IP address. This changes every time you connect, making it far more difficult for websites to identify you or track your activities. (DVD version only)
