TunnelBear VPN and Wifi Proxy is a free application, which is incredibly easy to use and allows privacy and security to the users in a public Wi-Fi hotspot. The users can browse through their favourite websites and applications privately while using a public Wi-Fi. TunnelBear proudly announces itself as being the only VPN service which was audited by a third party. 

Interface 4/5

This application allows the users relaxed browsing by securing the device from hackers, ISP’s and advertisers. It works by encrypting the user’s web data and browsing, so the physical location of the device becomes difficult to ascertain. IP is a unique number used by websites for location tracking across sites. TunnelBear diverts this through countries with a less restricted internet.

This application is handy while travelling to other countries as it can avoid restrictions and allows the users to stay connected. TunnelBear offers a free 500 MB browsing data per month without using a credit card. There are premium plans available which allow unlimited browsing.

Features 5/5

TunnelBear comes with some amazing features like:

  • At just a click, it protects the users from being tracked;
  • By encrypting the data, it assures the user's online privacy and offers lightning speed browsing. It shields the personal information from prying hackers and third-party users;
  • It has a Global VPN network with servers in more than 22 countries. It makes it easier to get to blocked sites;
  • It does not require the user to log-in;
  • The users can use it anywhere and anytime, and it’s always secure. Especially while travelling abroad, the users can access their emails and other sensitive websites without worries;
  • TunnelBear uses AES-256-bit encryption by default;
  • The users can browse up to 500 MB data free per month or opt for an upgraded subscription, which allows unlimited data access;
  • Allows for family sharing of up to 6 members;
  • It speeds up the connectivity by sidestepping the network gridlock;
  • Their privacy policy contains no jargon and is written in plain English.

Usability 5/5

It is a handy application for all users who either use a public Wifi or travel extensively. It is an inexpensive option for browsing privately. It provides unlimited bandwidth with user-friendly software. The pricing has also been kept low, despite great security. It offers servers in 20 countries and supports 15 languages including English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Turkish. It also allows family sharing where up to 6 members can browse using the same connection.

Compatibility 4/5

TunnelBear VPN can be used on iOS 9.0 or later versions. It can be used on an iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It also works on Windows - desktops and laptops, Android and macOS as well. However, there is limited support for using it on Linux. They have browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. It doesn’t work on Kindle, mobile devices with Windows OS, eReaders, Apple or Android T.V., gaming systems or routers.

The Bottom Line

It is a fantastic app for users as it provides a secure network in public places. It offers excellent security for users travelling abroad. It works at an enviable speed which is an advantage while streaming.
