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

Got Political

TunnelBear got political. It doesn’t matter who you’re supporting nor why, just for the love of all that is holy, shut up and stick to providing a service. Politicizing yourself is off-putting to say the least.

In response to the developer’s response: You don’t understand. By taking a political position (and when there are riots and public disagreement over such a movement, it’s definitely political), you have undermined your position of being a neutral actor. You are no longer a company providing a service, you are one with a political position. It means you cannot be trusted; where will it end? Will you convince yourselves in future it is okay to curate and censor what people can see and say online? What IPs they connect to?

Sorry, but no thanks. Taking a political position, *any* such position, means you aren’t a neutral actor and should not be trusted to be one.

Oh, and by the way, this update which presumably should have just changed an icon broke using your VPN on cellular networks for me. Great job.

Developer Response ,

We are proud to stand as allies alongside the Black community and do what we can to help raise awareness for the injustices they face. I implore you read more here (tunnelbear.com/blog/lets-talk-about-racism/).

You might also see that Apple, the provider of your iOS device and who's review service you are using right now, also stands with us and the Black community. You should be able to reach out to them at https://www.apple.com for more details.

Great protection

I loved the fact that you can add up to 5 devices who doesn’t have just a cell or computer and cheaper than others.
