What is IPNinja?

IPNinja is a useless application that pretends to be a VPN or Virtual Private Network software; however, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this program does not seem to work at all. This is not the only suspicious trait about this software that has led us to label it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) in the end. Unfortunately, there seems to be no way for you to download and install this tool officially and the subscription does not seem to work on its promotional page either. The most likely way for you to have this PUP on your system is through questionable distribution methods. In other words, it is likely that you have no idea how this PUP showed up on your computer. Since there is no real sign of its operations on your system, it can lay low for some time and who knows what it might actually do. We suggest that you remove IPNinja as soon as possible because it is a totally useless program on your PC that has no benefit for you and its operations are questionable.testtest

Where does IPNinja come from?

You can find the official website at ipninja.io, which looks quite professional in all fairness. However, there are certain signs that make this PUP suspicious to us. As you may know, VPNs are most often used by corporations to protect sensitive data; yet, there are no legal documents (EULA, Privacy Policy) shared on this website. This is always suspicious and should be enough for you to want to delete IPNinja from you system if it is there already. It seems that there is no free version of this program available, but instead, you can subscribe for Beginner ($29/month), Professional ($49/month), and Enterprise ($79/month) versions. But we have found that you cannot even subscribe for this alleged VPN service or the software because it does not send you confirmation e-mail or any further information. As a matter of fact, when you visit the “How It Works” menu, you find a 13-second time-lapse video of a square, probably somewhere in Germany, with outside bars and people rushing by. Well, this could be a symbolically coded video message but we seem to have failed to crack it. In any case, these are all worrisome traits.

What is even worse, this PUP can be found spreading on the web via freeware bundles. These software packages however may contain a couple of other more serious threats, too. For example, a bundle can pack adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and fake alerts as well. Any of these infections may expose you to malicious third-party content and cause serious system security issues for you. If you do not want to install such questionable bundles, you need to stop downloading free programs from suspicious torrent and freeware pages. These sites usually promote third-party installers that may contain all kinds of malware infections on top of a possibly working free program. But these pages also host a number of unsafe third-party ads just like other questionable sites associated with online gambling, gaming, dating, and porn. One click on the wrong content and you could download such a bundle in no time or directly install PUPs and malware infections. We advise you to remove IPNinja and then, run a reliable online malware scanner to identify all the other threats as well.

How does IPNinja work?

This PUP is supposed to be a VPN program that has “residential IP addresses all over the globe” with three different pricing packages. However, our research shows that this program does not seem to do anything useful at all, including changing IP addresses. Still, it makes changes to your system so that it can start up automatically with Windows every time you reboot. You cannot even realize that this PUP is operating on your system unless you check the list of running processes in your Task Manager. In fact, this is the only way for you to stop its operation before you remove this PUP. Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc key combination simultaneously to open the Task Manager. Locate the questionable process called "IP Ninja" and press the “End task” button. Now you will not have to be afraid that this application may do anything in the background without your knowledge.

How do I delete IPNinja?

But, if you want to eliminate this PUP from your system, it is obviously not enough to end the process as it will start up again and again whenever you restart your system. Fortunately, there is one thing about this application that actually works: its uninstaller. This means that you can easily uninstall this program via Control Panel. If you are not familiar with the necessary steps, you can follow our guide below this article. You may have realized that this could be time now for you to focus more on your protection if you do not want to lose your files or money to a more serious malware attack. We believe that the best solution is to install a decent reliable anti-malware program (e.g., SpyHunter) that can automatically handle all malware-related issues and more.
