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

I enjoyed using this app a lot. VPN worked perfectly for what I use it for. Not once did I get the typical ‘IP address hidden ‘ error message from any servers or site unlike majority of VPN apps and nor did I have to put up with lagging either. Definitely 5 star rating & yes it’s worth paying monthly fee to have it at my disposal. 😋

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

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