IPredator is incorporated in Cyprus, but is subject to Swedish law. That is not disadvantageous, however, as Sweden has some of the strictest privacy protection around. They offer OpenVPN and PPTP. The service isn’t quite as flexible as some others, but it does have its advantages.
IPredator is now a part of Njalla as of late 2020. It is still made up of the same core team but now with more privacy services such as VPS and domain name, and a better infrastructure.
All the people using IPredator will be able to move their account over to Njalla. All the remaining VPN time is added to the account – plus one extra month as a welcome bonus. Users that already have an Njalla account will get your VPN time extended. But if you want to give it to someone else, or have multiple accounts, just contact our support and Njalla will help you out.
Pricing & Plans
IPredator only has one package. For €5 per month, you get unlimited speed and transfer.
You can pay with credit cards, PayPal, Bitcoin and several other providers.
Free Trial/ Money-back Guarantee
When IPredator was still a separate entity, you could get a 3-day free trial when you contact their customer support. These days, however, Njalla does not provide any information if users can test out IPredator as a VPN service.
Privacy & Anonymity
IPredator keeps logs to the extent that they are required for troubleshooting. The information logged includes firewall problems, connection drops and other information.
They do not log your traffic and they do not examine your traffic. Their server data is fully encrypted, and they are not breaking Swedish law by refusing to log, so user data is protected on this service.
Torrenting is allowed on this service.
For support requests, make sure to sign in on your Njalla account and use their support system. You can also click on their contact page and send an email via the contact form.
IPredator doesn’t have their own client. For OpenVPN, download the appropriate configuration files from your account page and import them into your OpenVPN client config folder. On systems that don’t support OpenVPN, PPTP can be set up manually.
Considering that iPredator hooked us up to a server in Sweden using the standard configuration files, their speed was very impressive. We got over 16Mbps download on a 50Mbps connection located in the US. This service definitely does have a fast network.
IPCheck and DNSLeak Test
Our IP address was changed successfully. This service did leak our DNS server address, however, so you should configure yours manually to ensure it’s not visible.

Areas for Improvement
Adding a client and more servers would take this service up to the next level.
IPredator is very good if you’re particularly concerned about privacy. It’s a service that’s more likely to appeal to advanced users, as the setup requires that you use the OpenVPN GUI and only gives you configuration files to work with. It’s not a difficult process, but might confuse some less-experienced users.
