Private Network Hotspot Proxy

TunnelBear, LLC

    • Free
    • Offers In-App Purchases


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

Best VPN app

I’ve been using this app on Mac for a long time but never on the phone. Now during the Belarusian elections we are worried about the freedom of speech and how it affects the internet (for the past few days it has been working with disruptions or really slow) and thank you tunnel bear team for providing 10GB of traffic. Sending lots of love from Belarusian people ❤️

Freezes, silently drops VPN or crashes(yet again)

Something happened with my WiFi network, Tunnelbear tried to start then crashed every time instead of reporting connection failure. Wasted hours of time. After restarting the wireless router, seems to work, but such behavior is unacceptable anyway.
Happened again with newer version. no apparent reason, crashes, freezes, no internet. Restored VPN by toggling akrplane mode and toggling VPN ib settings, only then the UI became usable.

Previous review, happened quite often:
“It is now turning VPN off by itself, many times per day. Or stops receiving anything until I change server. I regularly find myself unprotected suddenly. VPN you can’t rely on is worse than no VPN at all.”

Developer Response ,

Hi there, so sorry you had that issue, do you mind reaching out to our support bears with this so they can investigate further what caused this so we can prevent it in the future? If you decide to do so please raise a ticket at tunnelbear.com/support! Thank you.

Thank you

Thank you so much for being solitary with Belarus people and giving away 10mb of traffic free. This gesture is worthy of respect at these difficult political times in our country! You are the best!
