TunnelBear is a great choice if you just want something to protect your privacy while you browse. The app provides one of the strongest digital protection without complicated options and interfaces. You might suffer a bit on the speed site, and there is a limited choice of servers available. The tool wants to bring the benefits of VPN to everyone with incredibly simple applications for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. Download a free TunnelBear for Windows today and enjoy an open and unrestricted Internet. TunnelBear VPN is a free, incredibly simple app to browse the Internet privately and securely. The beautiful TunnelBear app protects your online privacy, lets you access your favourite websites & apps, and secures your connection on public WiFi hotspots.

What does TunnelBear do? Put simply, by using TunnelBear, you can browse from anywhere with peace of mind knowing that your online activity is more private from hackers, ISPs, and advertisers. How does TunnelBear work? TunnelBear VPN is a really simple app that encrypts your web browsing and data (making it unreadable) as it leaves your device . It makes public Wi-Fi safe and secure, and also keeps your browsing private from ISPs. Websites and advertisers will have a more difficult time tracking your physical location and browsing across the Internet. How can I trust TunnelBear ? Your browsing habits are personal and shouldn’t be trusted to just anyone. TunnelBear is proud to be the first and only VPN service in the world that has been independently audited by a 3rd party. You can feel confident that we deliver on our promise to secure your data.

TunnelBear offers both free and premium subscriptions. However, the free version is only limited to 500 MB of bandwidth per month. To get unlimited data and enjoy other features, like multiple simultaneous connections, you need to pay for either the monthly or annual subscription. The annual subscription is advisable as it offers the overall best deal. It is also heavily discounted.

Strong Encryption
Tunnel Bear uses strong AES 256-bit encryption by default. Weaker encryption isn’t even an option.

Defeat VPN blocking with GhostBear. Make your VPN encrypted data less detectable to governments, businesses, and ISPs.

Always On
Automatically connect and stay connected. A bear will keep your data secure 24/7.

Simple Design
On, Off, it’s that easy. An app designed to be so simple a Bear could use it.

Always Vigilant
If your connection gets disrupted for any reason, the app will block all traffic until it’s safely reconnected.

Smart advanced features

While TunnelBear comes with limited servers, it does include some advanced features. Among those is the Trusted Networks, which is basically a whitelist of Wi-Fi networks that you trust. Another important feature is the Vigilant mode, which prevents data from slipping through your internet connection when your device gets disconnected.

Features: One-tap connect: App so simple, a bear could use it. A VPN you can trust: Along with a strict no-logging policy, we’re the only consumer VPN app to have completed a 3rd party, public security audit. Global VPN network: With servers in 22+ countries and lightning-fast speeds, access the websites and apps you love. Anytime, anywhere. Grizzly-grade security: TunnelBear uses strong AES-256 bit encryption by default. Weaker encryption isn’t even an option. No logging. Your browsing stays private. Helpful support that always responds within 24 hours.

TunnelBear didn’t have many servers to choose from. It only has 22 server locations. Also, it doesn’t have a location search box and lacks a list of servers with some basic information, such as load and ping time.
