VPNinja is brought to you by Trepantech Group Limited, which is a Hong Kong based company. Launched in 2009, the service offers a stealth and totally anonymous way to unblock the internet. In this extremely detailed VPNinja Review, we will check the features of the service and help you to decide whether or not you should subscribe to the VPN plans offered by the company.

Server Locations and Site Access

As of now, VPNinja has servers in United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, France and Luxembourg. While the number of server locations is on a slightly lower side, the service allows the subscribers to unlock hundreds of premium On-Demand sites like BBC iPlayer, Bravo, Netflix, Vudu, 4OD, Xfinity, Spotify, Canal+, Demand 5, iTV, Rara, CBS, Zattoo, MTV, Pandora, Fox, TV Japan, Eurosport, CWTV, NBC, Wowow, HBO Go, Arte, Hulu, Spacecast, MLB, NHL, TMC, Amazon Prime, CTV, E!, Lovefilm, CBC, ABC, USA Network, TV Asahi and City TV regardless of their current location. Additionally, since the company permits unlimited number of server switches with its VPN plans, you can unlock IP restricted content from all the six countries with one VPN subscription.

The service even provides an easy way to bypass ISP and institutional censorship and access Facebook, Gmail, YouTube, Skype and Twitter from offices, schools and countries like China, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE and Brazil. In fact, the company has a team based in Shanghai (China) so it is able to keep pace with the changes being made to the Great Firewall of China and offer unrestricted internet from China at all times.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPNinja offers high speed and dedicated bandwidth plans to its subscribers. Although the lack of an unlimited bandwidth plan is indeed surprising, the bandwidth and speed available are ideal for resource hungry activities such as streaming of HD movies and Television shows, VOIP, downloading/uploading of data files and multiplayer gaming. The company permits P2P transfer through its Luxembourg servers which is definitely a good news for fans of bittorrenting activities.

Privacy Settings

VPNinja protects your anonymity with 128-256 bit encryption which is delivered through PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols. The PPTP protocol provides adequate security for browsing sessions whereas L2TP and OpenVPN protocols offer a higher level of protection for banking and shopping activities. The service even protects your credit card numbers, social accounts and passwords while you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot at a public place (mall, airport, coffee shop and hotel). The company has special “stealth” servers for Chinese users which use a combination of SSL and TLS encryption and prevent the authorities from blocking OpenVPN sessions.

While the company does not monitor online activities of its users, customers found to be involved in sharing or downloading of illegal files would be immediately banned from using the service.

Supported Operating Systems

VPNinja works with most computing and mobile systems such as Windows (7/8/Vista/XP), Mac, iPads, iPhones, Android Smartphones/tablets as well as gaming devices, Smart TVs and routers. The company even sells its own routers to help people secure their online access and access streaming content through a variety of devices. The company supplies a custom client “OpenVPNinja” for Mac and Windows but users of others systems would need to configure the service manually. However, the installation and configuration process is extremely simple due to the availability of detailed setup instructions on the company’s support website. Unlike most other VPN providers, the company allows 2 simultaneous connections for each user account.

Customer Support

The company provides support through a help desk and ticket system. The support staff is extremely knowledgeable and user friendly and responds to most queries within a reasonable time. The company has even published detailed troubleshooting instructions in its FAQ section so it is definitely possible to resolve errors without having to contact the support team.

Pricing Options

VPNinja does not offer a free trial but it does provide a one week, 20 GB bandwidth account for $3. The monthly plan comes with 100 GB bandwidth limit and is available for $6 whereas the annual plan includes 1.2 TB bandwidth for $58. The company even provides a reasonable money back guarantee period (2 day for monthly plan and 7 days for annual subscription) so it is indeed possible to test the service without risking your money. In addition, it is also possible to save money on your subscriptions by using VPNinja coupons.

Final Verdict

Overall, VPNinja delivers a fantastic VPN service. Although the company does not have a presence in many geographical areas, it offers a secure way to anonymize your online activities even from restrictive countries like China. So if you are looking for a trusted VPN solution that really works, check the VPN offers from VPNinja. For more information, please visit: www.vpnninja.com.
