France is keeping a close eye on you
The 9 Eyes is an international surveillance alliance. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, and Norway are all members. The countries collaborate to collect and share mass surveillance data.
Essentially, the alliance is one massive global-surveillance entity that spies on you and records your activities.
Data retention laws state that French authorities can only store your data for a limited 1-year period. But there’s no guarantee it hasn’t been stored in another country from the alliance.
France is no stranger to censorship
Even though France claims to protect freedom of speech, there have been cases where governmental agencies resorted to censorship.
In April 2013, Wikipedia’s French site-version was ordered to take down an article that had been online from 2009. The text was deemed to contain classified military information. The Wikipedia administrator who was asked to take down the article was threatened to be held in custody and charged if he failed to comply.
And that’s not all. France’s attempts to curb terrorism and hatred have brought the end to over 2,700 websites. There’s no telling how many of these forced takedowns were actually warranted. Now people fear there will come a day when even social media websites may be deemed dangerous.
Things are not rosier when it comes to torrenting and copyrighted materials. Because of HADOPI, the anti-piracy law, you may end up paying fines of up to €1,500 or even getting a 1-month internet time-out if you’re caught torrenting.
So far, about 70 Internet users have been sanctioned for torrenting copyrighted content online.
But using a VPN is legal in France, so it’s time to protect your privacy with CyberGhost VPN.
In France, online privacy is an illusion
Internet Service Providers in France are forced to track everything you do online. From your web-browsing habits to the emails you send, all this data is made available to French law enforcement agencies if the information is deemed suspicious.
It gets even worse. If you get flagged for suspicious activity, law enforcement agencies can install stealth cameras and keyloggers to analyze your metadata further.
And there’s more. France’s Law on Trust in the Digital Economy requires all web hosting companies to store and provide the government with usernames, passwords, phone numbers, financial transactions, and IP addresses of anyone who creates online content in France.
So much for digital privacy in France.
Reclaim your right to be anonymous online
A VPN is the best solution for reclaiming your right for total online privacy and sidestepping France’s crusade on privacy.
When browsing behind a VPN, all your Internet traffic is directed through an encrypted tunnel created solely between you and the site you want to access. The data that travels through that tunnel is encrypted as well, so the contents are always hidden.
CyberGhost VPN makes sure no-one will ever get their hands on your browsing habits or access any of your private data. And since we keep no logs, you’ll be the only one knowing what you do online.
Enjoy French television abroad
Whether you’re an expat or you’re just traveling out of France, staying up to date with local news, events, or your favorite French TV shows can often be impossible. The content is geo-restricted outside France.
To access most of the streaming services from back home, you need a French IP address.
The good news is, with CyberGhost VPN by your side, getting one is a piece of cake. All you’ll need to do is launch our VPN app and connect to a French server. There are over 320 servers available there, so finding one is not a problem.
To make things even sweeter, we have servers optimized for:
Escape international streaming restrictions
Geo-restrictions work both ways. When you’re in France, they limit your access to only a chunk of the available content, like Netflix is doing. Or streaming services like Sling TV and many others are completely blocked.
These geo-restrictions are imposed based on your IP address. But at CyberGhost VPN, we hide your IP and replace it with one from our system. With your real location camouflaged, streaming services will give you access to their entire catalogs.
CyberGhost VPN protects all your devices
The times when a laptop or computer were the only ways to connect to the Internet are long gone. We now own more internet-connected gadgets than ever. And all of them require VPN protection.
Plus, one CyberGhost VPN subscription is enough to protect your entire digital life and keep all your gadgets safe from prying digital eyes. That’s because CyberGhost VPN allows up to 7 simultaneous connections.
Experience an internet without borders and limitations
Whether you’re a French citizen who’s had enough with being monitored, an expat living abroad or a wandering traveler looking to reconnect with a tiny fragment from your homeland, we’ve got you covered.
We have more than 320 blazing fast VPN servers located in France. And they’re all equipped to give you the smoothest VPN experience. No throttling, no bandwidth limitations, no buffering, and no delays.

The use of a VPN is 100% legal in France. However, bear in mind that illegal activities are still illegal, even if you use a VPN.
CyberGhost VPN is the ideal VPN for French expats, people living in the country, or traveling abroad. But with us as your VPN provider, you get much more than just a chance to unblock streaming services, watch sporting events or access websites.
We give you state-of-the-art security features such as military-grade encryption, a kill switch, and DNS-leak protection. We also have a strict No logs policy in place.
