Why IPinator VPN?
When you connect to the Internet, your computer is assigned an IP address, which is your unique identification number on the Internet. This number may contain information about where you are located, who you are, and what programs are running on your computer. Many websites and software applications use your IP address to track and profile your online activity. Using IPinator, you can conceal your identity online by showing these websites a fake IP located in a country of your choice, blocking hackers and prying eyes from knowing your true location or identity.
What exactly does IPinator do?
When IPinator runs, it sets your web browser proxy settings to show a fake IP from our IP database. You will then be able to browse the Internet with your favorite web browser while remaining totally anonymous. When you stop running IPinator, your web browser settings will revert back to normal (without the fake IP). IPinator uses OpenVPN.
Will IPinator work with my router or Dial-Up, wireless, DSL, and Cable Modem Internet connections?
Yes, IPinator is compatible with all types of routers, firewalls, home networks, wireless networks, and any other kind of Internet connection. You will need to purchase one license key for each computer on your network that you wish to conceal your IP address on.
Does IPinator affect the speed of my Internet connection?
Our IPs are located all over the world. By using an IP location far from your current location, your Internet traffic will bounce great distances before reaching your computer. If you are using a fake IP located outside the country you live in, your browsing may be slower. If you live in the United States and would like the fastest browsing, check the box Require US-Based IP.
