CyberGhost activation key – Everything you need to know! May 2024

If you’re a bit old school like me and still rely on the good old fashion activation keys, its time to upgrade. Nowadays, for the most part, you don’t need activation keys to get started.

The same is the case for CyberGhost VPN. Unless you purchase CyberGhost through either a physical store or Bitcoin, you will not need any activation key to use your subscription.

If you’re still a bit confused, don’t worry. In this short guide, I’m going to clear all the confusion you have regarding the CyberGhost activation key.

I didn’t get my activation key, where is it?

So, you just purchased this cheap VPN service, but still didn’t get any activation key? Well, there is a reason for it. If you purchase CyberGhost online via their website, you will not receive any activation keys. That’s because your account will be activated immediately when you purchase a subscription.

Instead of requiring any activation keys, you can simply log in to your CyberGhost account using the provided Username and Password. If you wish to use your subscription on other devices, you might find this guide on CyberGhost Sign-up and log in.

As for CyberGhost subscriptions purchased offline through either a physical store, Bitcoin, or a special campaign, you will require an activation key. We’ll cover how you can activate your CyberGhost 7 activation key in the next heading.
