iNinja, a VPN service offered by the United Kingdom-based iNinja Ltd, is a free VPN extension for Chrome. One of the newest providers on the VPN scene, the service launched in 2017 and provides some attractive features for those who use the Chrome browser, such as servers in the United States and the UK, unlimited speeds, and Wi-Fi protection. And most of all, it’s free. While iNinja is free and easy-to-use, it doesn’t necessarily match up to several other providers. This VPN provider is known to keep logs about users’ browsing activities, and it seriously lacks the number of servers and server locations compared to other VPN providers. There is a limited number of servers across only eight countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, and the Netherlands. That being said, iNinja does provide 128-bit SSL data encryption, which offers some protection for users, but it’s still a bit on the low end when it comes to security features. Many other VPN providers offer 256-bit encryptions, DoubleVPN, OpenVPN, and kill switches. iNinja also boasts 24/7 customer support, but support is limited to only email. Overall, iNinja may be a good VPN for people who use Chrome and are looking for something free and easy-to-use with unlimited server switching and speed, but who may not need the stronger security offered by other VPN providers.
Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
iNinja has 10 servers in 8 countries.
iNinja is very simple and easy to use. All it really needs is a click of a button to enable the VPN service, and you don’t even need to set up an account. Just download the browser extension from the Chrome web store, then install the add-on by clicking “Add to Chrome.” To use the VPN, just click the App icon and choose the server location you want to connect to. The settings are automatic, so there’s no need for configuration. There have been some instances of iNinja having trouble connecting to servers in other countries, however.
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
