So for those times when you really don’t want your friendly national surveillance service (or that freak Carrie Mathison from “Homeland”) watching everything you do online, there’s NinjaStik. For everything else there’s, well, everything else.  I feel much safer already.

Dan Tynan – ITWorld

…quite simply, the NinjaStik does what it says on the tin and I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants secure and anonymous online communications as well as encrypted filestorage without the hassle of having to learn how to configure it all themselves.

Alexander Hanff – Think Privacy

For most people, spending less than $70 on a device that they know will work, and has great support from Jeremy at, is a lot easier than messing with something they are not fully schooled in. No hassle, guaranteed.

Reviews on the Run – video review of the NinjaStik



  • A robust SwissArmyKnife for privacy on- & off-line while browsing or not!
  • 60 seconds to anonymity – sweet and it works! 
  • Overall it’s a nice little tool for less tech savvy people trying to get a little privacy online, and are in a situation where they’re mobile and using computers that don’t belong to them or are shared with un-trusted parties.
  • I bought a Ninja Stick from Jeremy because he had incorporated Lubuntu, FireFox and Tor into a USB.  This is an amazing accomplishment, giving anyone almost complete privacy and anonymity off virtually any computer.  
  • They made sure that if I was not satisfied I was aware that I could get a refund.  I figured I’d buy another computer before I’d give up my Ninja Stick.  If he wanted it back he would have to pry it out of my cold dead fingers.  
  • Great product, reasonable price, excellent customer service.

    I didn’t intend on doing anything really subversive with this but it sure is nice looking at Linkedin profiles without everyone knowing it’s me. I hate that linkedin shows who’s been looking at a profile – so wrong, anyway , this takes care of it nicely.

    • ninjastik May 7, 2014 at 5:40 am #

      Thanks for the feedback and yet another great reason to use your NinjaStik!

    Fantastic, totally fantastic – worked on my MacBook right out of the box, plugged it in, booted and the first time using it took about 2 minutes to get online. The second time was less than a minute. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!! 5 Stars

    • ninjastik May 7, 2014 at 5:40 am #

      Well we think your feedback is fantastic too. Cheers

    for anyone looking at this product, I purchased 2 16 GB ninjastiks, they both work as claimed – seem very well put together. I also checked the encryption and each device has it’s own individual encryption key – no vulnerability found. As others have noted the support is very friendly – Highly recommended from this buyer.

    • ninjastik March 20, 2014 at 8:39 am #

      Thank you for the feedback and reassurance about the encryption. Cheers!

    My review of this product: It didn’t work with my macbook pro until I used the second method that included downloading refit. Works well with my asus netbook. It does boot up within the 1 minute advertised time. Most websites work just like normal, some are a bit slow but not terribly so. Overall this is a 9/10 – great product.

    • ninjastik March 15, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    • ninjastik February 16, 2014 at 11:36 am #

      Happy to hear it worked with one of your computers. OSX 10.7 seems to be a problem getting devices to boot from USB. Thanks for the recco!

    I bought 2 16gb ninjastik’s and they are incredible. My friend loves it but I screwed mine up by changing the password and using an uppercase letter in my password while my computer will not let me use caps on the unbuntu load screen for some reason. I brought this to the attention of tech support asking if there was anything I could do. A man named Jeremy replied ” Yes , we can send you a new one and it is in the mail”. Great product , and without a doubt in my mind the best costumer service I have ever had in my life. I will recommend this product to everyone I get the chance too. I would like to give a big thanks to the whole Ninjastik staff!!

    prior to this I spent 2 weeks trying to get encrypted email setup through Tor on my notebook – got my Ninjastik on Thursday and had encrypted email 2 minutes later – worth every single penny spent.

    • ninjastik November 12, 2013 at 7:13 am #

      thanks for the purchase and let us know if you have any questions!

  14. Tom October 7, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

    I ordered on of these last week and can’t wait for it to arrive, basic question, my main computer is a Mac (OS X Lion) but I also use a pc. Can the stik be set up for both systems or do I have to choose one or the other. I’m not too bothered if it’s just one, probably just use my old laptop.

    • ninjastik October 8, 2013 at 5:31 am #

      You can use the NinjaStik on both, you can go from Mac to PC and back to Mac again. Apple has really locked down the ability to boot from USB with the latest updates but most of our Mac owners have been successful in using the NinjaStik. If you have any difficulties when it arrives just send us an email. And thanks for ordering!

  15. Jack October 5, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    I bought one of these in March 2013 but it was only 15.00. I think I got ripped off since It included only GPG4WIN and some onion address and true crypt. It did not have secure email account program with it. I have had hell getting gpg4WIN to work . Is this the same flash drive I bought. It also included Tor Brower Bundle. I was able to get on the Tor network and to other sites but did not feel secure not being able to use PGP for my address when requested. Is this a new and improved Ningastick or what I already have?

    • ninjastik October 5, 2013 at 8:18 pm #


      It sounds like you purchased from one of our imitators. There are many out there who are putting up similar looking products but without the same functionality, security and customer service.

      Sorry to hear you’ve purchased something that sounds rather sketchy, send us an email at and we may be able to help you out.

  16. GM4N September 25, 2013 at 5:19 pm #

    Ordering was easy.. delivery 3-4 (work) days to Belgium, Europe.
    I like the product, comes in a nice little box and it does exactly what it should do!
    U plug it in any device that can boot from usb and in less then a minute u have your ‘own’ desktop available.
    The costumer service is awesome! I had some issues and everytime i got a good answer within the hour if not sooner. 10/10
    Keep up the good work!
    I would recommend this product to everybody that needs more privacy.

    How would you say your product differs from the The Amnesiac Incognito Live System (TAILS)? What specific advantages does NinjaStik have over this freely available software that may also be installed on USB? Thank you and yes this is a genuine enquiry.

    I’m considering purchasing NinjaStik. I have one dumb question I can’t seem to find the answer to on the FAQ or elsewhere:

    Will the NinjaStik work on Intel and AMD processors, or do you sell an “Intel” version and an “AMD” version?

    Thanks in advance….

    • ninjastik August 26, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

      Hi, The NinjaStik will work with both Intel and AMD processors. Cheers

    I purchased one of these Ninjastik, it didn’t work with my macbook, but my money was refunded immediately. After thinking about it for a few weeks I ended up buying a regular notebook and bought another ninjastik and it works good.

    Your NinjaStik is a masterpiece.

    As a linux enthusiast, most people won’t know why it works so well, why – they won’t even be aware THAT it works so well.

    Program selection for resource management, support and stability have all
    gone into the mix.

    What you have accomplished, is to have made the highest security available
    TURNKEY emphatically TURNKEY.

Regardless, once you have expreienced the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are hidden, you will never want to do without it. 10 out of 10 for the NinjaStik

    can I use this with mtgox? does the wallet work with them?

    • ninjastik April 13, 2013 at 1:01 am #

      It sure does – mtgox is online and the electrum wallet works with any exchange, bitcoin accepting merchant or other person with a wallet. The benefit of the NinjaStik is that the Electrum wallet has a recover option and the NinjaStik is protected with 256bit encryption – so even if you lose it, no one can get to your bitcoins but you can recover them!

  45. bitcoin April 12, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    Worked just like it says and having my bitcoins in an encrypted wallet inside an encrypted usb drive is pretty safe, and it was much easier than i thought, Love that recovery feature too. Thanks

Showed up in my mail fast, very professional package, love the feel of the usb drive, and most importantly it worked right out of the box. Saved me from futzing around with tor, and not worrying if i was actually anonymous. Thanks!

  50. not given March 28, 2013 at 7:50 am #

    I am back to leave a review for others looking at this product. It certainly does what it promises – once I learned how to start from usb on my laptop in less than 1 min I was online and the homepage on firefox is set to tell you if you are anonymous or not – a really nice feature. There is a nice set of programs to do word stuff, manage your photos, lots of room to save my files (got the 16gb model). Browsing is usually pretty quick – the tor network can be a bit laggy sometimes, but nothing too bad.

    Overall the ninjastik gets a 5 of 5 from my experience so far.

    Ordered this and it shipped in 12 hours, received in 3 days. Plugged it in to my home PC and it worked first time in less than a minute although i wasn’t using a stopwatch it felt like much less. Have found that browsing speed is a bit slower than normal but not so much as to be annoying

    • ninjastik February 5, 2013 at 7:20 am #

      Thanks for the feedback, if you find that browsing is unusually slow, open the Vidalia control panel and click on ‘new identity’. This will give you a new connection through TOR.

    I received my ninjastik yesterday and here is my review. It works just as promised – the first time using it I had to connect to the wifi and restart tor from the panel. After that it loads up fast and firefox pops up saying that I am connected to tor properly every time. Viewing websites is a bit slower than normal because it is using tor, but overall, first impressions – great device, very easy to use.

    I received my ninja stik and it works just as described. I was a bit unsure when opening the package – it’s just a 16 GB usb thumb drive, doesn’t have a logo on the drive, it came in a small bubblewrap envelope with a half page sheet telling me how to use it. Aside from the basic packaging, it works and it is less than a minute to the TOR check page on my laptop.

  65. Anonymous December 28, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

    I received my Ninjastick in the mail today (only 4 days after ordering) and wanted to leave my evaluation of it here.

    It worked with my Gateway Celeron laptop, had to change the boot order in the bios.

    The NinjaStik loaded, asked for my encryption password, then my login password and then loaded the desktop. It did not connect to TOR right away as I had to select my wifi router first. Once that was done I restarted TOR from the control panel and it loaded TOR very quickly.

    Overall the Ninjastick worked as advertised and I am looking forward to starting my anonymous blog soon.

    I’m going to use this to run my blog – any advice on how to do it? BTW it works on my home computer, haven’t tried it with wireless yet.

    This thing is sweet – I was worried the ‘rents would see TOR installed on my laptop. I just need to figureout where to send my deliveries.

    This is awesome! Got mine yesterday and it works with my Toshiba laptop perfectly – was online in less than a minute after setting up my wifi. Thanks
