Editors' Review for TunnelBear
TunnelBear is one of the easiest to use among the popular VPNs today. It provides you with a simple, useful anonymity service that can hide your IP address and prevent website trackers from reaching your computer. This application uses the industry standard, OpenVPN protocol, and the 256-bit AES encryption to ensure your privacy while you surf online.
This VPN offers both free and premium subscriptions. It operates servers in more than 20 locations, but users of the free service can use all other servers except the one in Australia. This bear keeps no logs and is leak-free, but restricts the bandwidth to just 500MB 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.
TunnelBear has its own DNS servers and offers an automatic kill switch. Otherwise, it displays statistical data concerning the trackers blocked by the application during your browsing session. Otherwise, it features 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.
