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.

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.

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.

Your browsing habits are personal and shouldn't be trusted to just anyone. TunnelBear is proud to be the first VPN service in the world to be independently audited by a 3rd party. You can feel confident that we deliver on our promise to secure your data.

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

What’s New

Version 3.3.2

Snow has started flying in the North, and while other bears are sorting out their hibernation situation, the TunnelBears have been building new features and sprucing up old ones. After you upgrade to the latest version you might notice a few changes.
- The TunnelBear iMessage Sticker Pack has landed!!! The stickers won't encrypt your text messages, but they will make conversations 100% cuter.
- Onboarding has changed a bit. When new Bear owners confirm their email address, TunnelBear will now automatically turn on after the confirmation screen.
- US, Canada and Britain are the most popular country connections we have, so they've been moved to the top of the Country Selection list.
- When you install TunnelBear without a VPN profile, a new Profile Install Screen will explain what VPN profiles are and why you need them for TunnelBear to work.

Great Security Access As Travel

We travel overseas for more than two months yearly. Many countries, Asia, South America, Europe and accessing free wifi, airports, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, hotels and I am so pleased to have the security of Tunnel Bear, works brilliantly. Also enables me to access the Australian sites barred to me when I am away from Home. Try it you you will be pleased.

Issues with TB

Currently rating this 3 stars as since th last two updates, TB hasn't worked on my iPad and I have no idea why it doesn't, despite being compatible. I'll change my rating to 5 stars when it's fixed.

Additionally, Tunnel Bear is the best VPN I've ever used. It's compatible with iOS devices as well as the PC. Even if you are unsure about it, you can try it and get up to 1.5 gb a month (you start up with 500mb and I you tweet, you get an addition 1gb). Thank you Tunnel Bear team!

Troubles with connecting automatically

The app works great when everything is connected, however in its current iteration I have to disconnect then reconnect manually before I want to use the internet. Extremely frustrating, especially when opening push notifications.

If this problem still exists when my subscription needs to be renewed, I will probably give another provider a go

Developer Response ,

Rawr! Sorry for the trouble connecting. Can you get in touch with our support bears at We’ll troubleshoot the issue further!
