Does a VPN Slow Down Your Computer?
A VPN uses encryption to secure your connection. A slow down can resurface depending on the encryption protocol used.
The speed drop can go unnoticed on day-to-day tasks. But data heavy activities like streaming make the slow down more noticeable.
Here are the top 3 factors that affect your upload and download speeds:
1. Distance from the Server Location
You’re more likely to get slowed down the farther your geo-location is from the server you’re connecting to. Pick a server that’s closest to where you are in the world. Avoid slowdowns by selecting a VPN provider with a wide server selection.
2. Server Load
Overloaded servers can increase latency. 100 users sharing a 1,000mbps server can’t expect more than 10mbps average loading speed per person. If the number increases to 1,000 users, the server will start queueing or dropping requests. That’ll definitely slow download times.
3. VPN Protocols
- OpenVPN is the safest of all protocols. It’s also the most likely to slow your speed.
- WireGuard is the fastest and most widely recommended for streaming and file sharing.
- IKEv2 is both secure and fast.

A Tightly Secured Server Infrastructure
CyberGhost VPN enforces tight security on its server infrastructure. We start by scrutinizing our server vendors and then set up our servers to provide the best security. Our VPN protocols also add an unbreakable layer of protection.
CyberGhost VPN creates public and private keys and encrypts them with a password for triple security.
Our infrastructure team has sole access to the keys and VPN servers - so no one will ever get access to your data.
The Fastest VPN Protocols Out There
A VPN protocol defines how your communication with the VPN server is authenticated, encrypted, and how traffic is captured. Depending on the protocol, your connection can be stuck in the slow lane.
Our fast VPN protocols provide optimum speed and performance without compromising your security.
To ensure the best online safety, we routinely update our protocols and throw out the vulnerable ones. Choose the VPN protocol that suits you.
Greater Speed with Split Tunneling
Benefit from split tunneling to boost your connection speed.
Increase your streaming or file sharing speed by dedicating your VPN connection to data-heavy tasks only.
CyberGhost VPN reroutes and sends all your traffic and apps through a VPN tunnel by default. The apps you select are routed through the secure VPN tunnel. Everything else goes through your regular unencrypted network.
Not sure how to split, our customer support team is here to help 24/7.
Apps Optimized for Every Device

Yes and no. VPN encryption protocols that ensure privacy may slow you down by 10-20%.
A VPN can also increase your internet speed. You may be the target of ISP throttling or route blocking. The VPN sends your traffic through an encrypted tunnel, bypassing restrictions and providing a faster connection.
No. Most free VPNs have a small server network. Their limited budgets mean they don’t invest in infrastructure and security techniques. Free VPNs impose bandwidth limits and monitor your activity. They also profit from selling your data. Choose a reliable, fast VPN like CyberGhost. We strictly enforce our No-Logs policy, ensuring your data is never tracked or stored.
Frozen videos, interrupted calls, or failed backups result from lags and glitches. Try changing the VPN protocol or connecting to a different server location. CyberGhost VPN’s 45-day money-back guarantee allows you to test our service risk free.
