According to our IPinator VPN review, the service has a unique offering for its subscribers. You can install a fake IP address on your web browser while using IPinator VPN. After disconnecting IPinator VPN, the internet settings will revert to normal.


IPinator VPN Payment Methods Review

The IPinator VPN review indicates that the provider does not offer a list of payment methods to the users. We went through the FAQ section and found the answer of our query. The service offers PayPal as its only accepted payment method. We were expecting from the provider that it would offer Bitcoin or Credit Card as its other payment options. However, it was not the case in reality.



IPinator VPN Compatibility Review

The IPinator VPN review further reveals that the service is compatible with different platforms. These platforms include:


The users should go to download section to install IPinator VPN on their preferred devices. Furthermore, the Linux and iOS subscribers can use chrome browser extension to install the service.

IPinator VPN Servers Review

The IPinator VPN review suggests that the service offers 84 server locations along with 2000 IP addresses worldwide. Hence, you can connect to your preferred server location and start web surfing anonymously. However, these servers do not support P2P activities at all. Thus, you should select other VPN service if you want to perform P2P activity.


IPinator VPN Customer Support Review

Our IPinator review unveils that the service must enhance the functionality of its customer support department a great deal. By offering only two options like Contact Us and FAQs, you cannot claim to be a market leader in the privacy industry. Moreover, we tried to know about IPinator VPN servers’ location through using Contact us page.

Sadly, we were unable to get a response from the customer support section after three days. This is how the service operates in the market. We were expecting something better from IPinator VPN but all our hopes went in vain.

Through FAQ section, you can find your answers to your queries related to account activation issues and payment methods. The section should have added more value in terms of awareness for the users. Surprisingly, we did not find much information as we would have liked.


IPinator VPN SmartDNS Servers Review

To say the least, the service has something to offer for its subscribers. Through SmartDNS server feature, you can easily access geo-restricted content on various devices globally. The service is currently offering a huge global network of DNS servers enabling you to unblock different streaming websites.

IPinator VPN Protocols and Encryption Review

We were unable to find any information about the protocols IPinator VPN offers to its users. The provider should have offered a list of tunneling protocols like PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP, and IKEv2. Sadly, we did not find any of the above-mentioned protocols on the official website.

As per the findings of IPinator VPN review, the premium VPN + SmartDNS package provides 1024-bit encryption. However, we do not know about the level of encryption other pricing plans offer to the subscribers.


IPinator VPN Refund Policy/Money Back Guarantee Review

We analyzed each section of the provider’s official website in detail. Hence, we found that IPinator VPN offers exclusive 30 days money guarantee. According to its refund policy, you can avail the offer within 30 days after the subscription. Otherwise, you will not be able to make any financial claim after 30 days.

IPinator VPN Logging Policy Review

It is impossible for IPinator VPN to operate itself from the US and does not keep the log of its users. Hence, our IPinator VPN review suggests that the provider definitely stores the personal information of the subscribers. The personal information includes username, password, email address and other sensitive data of the user. Therefore, the users should think twice before subscribing to IPinator VPN.

IPinator VPN Privacy Policy Review

According to our IPinator VPN review, the service does not offer a clear-cut privacy policy on the official website. We were hoping that IPinator VPN would come up with a realistic privacy policy. However, all our hopes went in vain when we identified that the provider has headquarter based in US. Moreover, the privacy policy claims that the website may contain third party external links.

In addition, IPinator VPN does not hold itself accountable for security, content or privacy policies of these websites. Likewise, you cannot convince yourself to select the service as your preferred online privacy provider after reviewing its privacy policy.

IPinator VPN Torrenting Review

The service operates within the US therefore; it is an alarming sign for all the torrent users. Moreover, IPinator VPN clearly follows the DMCA rules in true letter and spirit. The users must select other VPN provider if they do not want to find themselves in the hot waters of copyright infringements.


IPinator VPN Review on Reddit

The provider does not have a good reputation on a leading interactive platform like Reddit. You will find users those who prefer to use a Reddit VPN than IPinator VPN. The service needs to take some proactive measures to build its brand image in the eyes of potential users. Here is the response of one Redditor we found on Reddit.

<div class=”reddit-embed” data-embed-media=”www.redditmedia.com” data-embed-parent=”false” data-embed-live=”false” data-embed-uuid=”6dc88863-a9f6-4d68-be8d-7e948e4852d7″ data-embed-created=”2017-08-18T16:22:25.744Z”><a href=”https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/57g3dy/do_not_use_IPinator_vpn_frequently_offered_on/d8rn4h2/”>Comment</a> from discussion <a href=”https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/57g3dy/do_not_use_IPinator_vpn_frequently_offered_on/”>Do not use IPinator VPN (frequently offered on stacksocial) – they store your passwords in plaintext.</a>.</div><script async src=”https://www.redditstatic.com/comment-embed.js”></script>


Moreover, we found another response from a same Redditor suggesting IPinator VPN stores users’ password.

<blockquote class=”reddit-card” data-card-created=”1503072889″><a href=”https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/57g3dy/do_not_use_IPinator_vpn_frequently_offered_on/?ref=share&ref_source=embed”>Do not use IPinator VPN (frequently offered on stacksocial) – they store your passwords in plaintext.</a> from <a href=”http://www.reddit.com/r/VPN”>VPN</a></blockquote>

<script async src=”//embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js” charset=”UTF-8″></script>


Final Verdict

We do not have any hesitation to say that we did not like the service at all. The provider has headquarter based in the US. Hence, this is enough to create doubts in our minds. We would recommend our users not to select IPinator VPN as their preferred online privacy service.

There are different VPN services available in the market those offer desired level of protection and anonymity to the users. Despite offering SmartDNS solution through a detailed list of SmartDNS servers, the service lacks basic functionality of a VPN.

Our IPinator VPN review has clearly highlighted that the users should not compromise on their online privacy at any cost. Otherwise, they could bear the consequences in the form of legal trouble.
