How to Download, Install & Use CyberGhost VPN on Router?

Installing CyberGhost VPN on the router means ensuring 24X7 VPN support along with complete security coverage for all of your gadgets. Yes, instead of setting up the VPN on individual devices, configuring it on a router and sharing the connection seems convenient. Alongside that, you get to enjoy privacy and anonymity on your VPN client app non-supported devices. But, if you're going to do it for the very first time, you need proper guidance. That's why we've created this step-by-step guide on how to download, install and use CyberGhost VPN on Router. Have a look. 

Note

There are two ways to set up CyberGhost VPN on a router. 

  1. You can purchase a FlashRouter with CyberGhost VPN pre-installed on it to avoid manual configuration. 
  2. Or, you can install DD-WRT/TomatoUSB firmware on your existing router to configure CyberGhost VPN on it.

Use CyberGhost VPN through FlashRouters Privacy App:

As we've already mentioned, CyberGhost Wi-Fi routers dismiss the requirement of manual configuration. You just need to install and use the FR Privacy App to protect all of your devices simultaneously.
