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

Good range of payment options

I am very impressed with this app and the helpful team respond to queries very quickly.
The app is simple to set up and works well.
They offer a good range of payments, including a 3 year deal with a single one off payment and no ongoing subscription for people who don't want to sign up for any recurring payments - a very fair choice of options.

Rawr! Thanks for updating your review! We're 'bear'y glad to hear that you're happy with the service now :)

Want to be SJW campaign fodder?

I noticed my app icon had gone monochrome and was concerned something had gone wrong. I checked if connected, checked it seemed to be working, gave up, came back next day to worry a bit more, then thought maybe there was a critical update I had not applied. Checked updates and received a BLM message. Still no explanation about why my icon was monochrome and no apology from TB for my wasted time and worry. What next month? Maybe pink, maybe rainbow? If the app is to be used as a social media platform this should be clearly stated in its promotional material so potential users are warned. We are paying for a VPN not to be social justice campaign fodder.

Rawr! Thanks for the review. This doesn't sound like intended behaviour for your Bear! Please contact us at for further assistance.

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.
