About TunnelBear

TunnelBear is a virtual private network (VPN) system that helps businesses securely browse and access corporate data across various devices including mobiles, desktop and tablets.. The software protects organizations from data leaks by converting browsing history into an unreadable format, restricting internet service providers, network owners, and hackers from accessing data.

The application uses Ghostbear functionality to prevent detection of VPN traffic among governments, businesses, and ISPs . With TunnelBear’s blocker tool, companies can control and correct the information shared on the network and facilitate website loading. The Splitbear capability also allows managers to control applications that are not required to be managed by the TunnelBear gateway.

In order to secure businesses, the solution utilizes AES-256 bit technology. The software can be deployed in the cloud and on-premise environments. It is also available as an application for Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS devices.

Key benefits of TunnelBear

TunnelBear VPN is used by over 16 million people in 179 countries and is available in 16 languages. TunnelBear also offers a lightweight Google Chrome extension that installs in seconds and seamlessly melts into your browsing experience.

A decent VPN service with quite a few locations

It's a good VPN, I recommend using it for just some private browsing.

Pros

The UI is nice, the connection is stable with multiple options. It has a kill switch which is very important for VPN services.

Cons

It comes with a cost which makes it hard to use for freelancing when you are a student.

TunnelBear is my low budget but quality VPN

In all I think if your budget is low and you still want some quality VPN service then TunnelBear is the best alternative.

Pros

What I like the most about this VPN is the free trial option that doesn't expire and also gives you free 500mb for sharing it on your social media page. Aside enjoying the free data it gives you, the amount to purchase it fully is relatively less as compared to other VPN's that give quality service as TunnelBear does.

Cons

What is dislike though and I hop is corrected is how slow it automatically connects back after it looses connection. At time it shows on your notification bar as though it is connecting automatically but it wont till you have to go back to the software and connect it manually. Also the connection is quite slow and can be improved upon. The locations are quite less and limited in the free mode.

A VPN that used to be great but went downfall.

Reviewed on 2019/05/01

Pros

We have been using this VPN for quite some time and It worked great with a good balance between features and monthly cost, even the UI was fun to watch.

Cons

After the acquisition from McAfee, we felt the security was compromised as all the traffic wasn't encrypted and secured but it actually may have been stored. As the company that used to be in Toronto now has to comply to US security and privacy requirements means no information is really private in their servers.
