To display the CyberGhost settings, first open the side menu.
Then tap on the menu entry 'Settings'.
The settings are divided into different sections for your account, Hotspot detection, VPN and some info:
- Username: Your CyberGhost user name
- Plan: Your current subscription
- Active devices: Number of registered and allowed devices. '3/5' means for example that you have a regular subscription, which includes the usage of 5 devices at the same time. Of these 5 devices you already registered 3. If the maximum amount of devices is reached, you need to remove a device, before you can register another one.
- Expires at: Date your subscription runs out, resp. date of your next payment.
- Account management (not available for Play Store subscriptions): Opens account management in your web browser.
- Restore account (not available for regular subscriptions): If you got logged out for some reasons or don't have access to your subscription, please tap on this entry. Your account will be restored by Google Play Store automatically. Please make sure you use the same Google account you used when purchasing your subscription.
Secure Wi-Fi Hotspot
Here you define how CyberGhost should react, if you enter a Wi-Fi network.
- Hotspot Protection: If enabled, CyberGhost detects new Hotspots and performs one of the following possible reactions, separately defined for secure (password-protected) and insecure (free, public) networks:
- Ask: The user will be asked for the type of reaction every time a Wi-Fi network will be entered.
- Start automatically: A VPN connection will be initiated automatically with the last valid settings every time a Wi-Fi network will be entered.
- Stop automatically: CyberGhost will disable a current protection, if a Wi-Fi network will be entered.
- Do nothing: CyberGhost will ignore Wi-Fi networks until further notice; VPN connections need to be initiated manually.
By tapping on 'More' you can define a type of reaction to specific Wi-Fi networks, e. g. to your home Wi-Fi. These networks will then be handled the ways specified, regardless of the kind of the default action for Wi-Fi networks in general.
Use random port to connect: This option allows CyberGhost to establish connections through randomly chosen ports (which will be changed with each new connection), instead of a fixed port that makes it easy for providers to slow down or block CyberGhost connections. The used port range can be changed anytime if needed. All ports are secured internally by Firewall rules.
