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. Try TunnelBear for free with 500MB of browsing data every month. No credit card required. In-app purchases available for premium plans, which give you unlimited data. 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 for iOS is a really simple app that encrypts your web browsing and data (making it unreadable) as it leaves your iPad or iPhone. 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. 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 looks clean, is simple, and it works. The network isn’t slow, and it secures your privacy while on unsecured networks.

  • 👎👎👎👎👎 UNUSABLE 90% of the time!

    Quite possibly the most overrated app in the App Store. Posting this review from mainland China using a totally FREE VPN because TunnelBear will NOT connect in mainland China. I've tried it in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai - -> 👎🏻 Also, India 👎🏻 UAE 👎🏻 No help from the VERY generic https://help.tunnelbeardotcom because you must be connected (duh?) first. Mediocre vpn - at best. 😞 This VPN works in countries where you don’t really need VPN, where it’s just an extra insurance. Basically the West. Mainland China? Forget it. (In 2+ years I’ve NEVER succeeded). UAE, nope.. India? hahaha.. This is one of those “make you feel good” apps which doesn’t really do what it’s supposed to do. In the past I could at least watch news clips from overseas news sites, be it Norway, Sweden, Germany, etc. as long as I selected that specific country. Now when I’m logged in to a VPN tunnel for that specific country I get a “sorry, unable to watch this news clip. You must be in “fill in the blank country” to watch this video.” Not impressed. -> to the developer - yes, I realize some of the countries I mentioned here are “high censorship places”. Yet here I am posting this review from Guangzhou, China using a free VPN because yours is pretty much worthless in this region. This has been ongoing for years. I use TB strictly for “easy” countries. For places where VPNs are a must your service and reliability is appalling.
  • Contact options

    When a problem arises I could never find a way to contact a live person. Billing problems were the biggest headache and after numerous failures you realize it is by design that contact is impossible.

    TunnelBear is a great VPN! It has a very simple user interface that anyone can figure out! Even though it has a limited number of servers, it is a fast VPN. I have had nothing but success with all of the servers I have used, but I prefer to leave it on automatic. 500MB per month might seem a little bit low, but that's for free! I did do the review which gave me 1GB additional for the first month. I have read that you can do that every month for an extra 1GB. I only use VPN for things that are extremely sensitive, so I am perfectly fine with the 500MB. All in all, it's a fantastic application and it's very inexpensive! If I could give this six stars, I would! Great job TunnelBear! As the Bear 🐻 says, Rawr!
  • Had it less then 12 hours

    By Mike50401
    I had it less then 12 hours. My Ipad spent the morning with a spinning thing and the VPN saying it was “connecting”. Worked great last night, but as soon as the day got going it had issues. I work for a living, and my Ipad needs to be working at my side. I don’t have time to try to figure out where their product can’t keep up.
  • Enjoying it
