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. WHAT DOES TUNNELBEAR DO? 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. HOW DOES TUNNELBEAR WORK? 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. HOW CAN I TRUST TUNNELBEAR? Your browsing habits are personal and shouldn’t be trusted to just anyone. TunnelBear is proud to be the first and only VPN service in the world that has been independently audited by a 3rd party. You can feel confident that we deliver on our promise to secure your data. FEATURES: One-tap connect: App so simple, a bear could use it. A VPN you can trust: Along with a strict no-logging policy, we’re the only consumer VPN app to have completed a 3rd party, public security audit. Global VPN network: With servers in 22+ countries and lightning-fast speeds, access the websites and apps you love. Anytime, anywhere. Grizzly-grade security: TunnelBear uses strong AES-256 bit encryption by default. Weaker encryption isn’t even an option. No logging. Your browsing stays private. Helpful support that always responds within 24 hours. WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING “TunnelBear is an elegant, easy mobile VPN that keeps you safe.” - Lifehacker “The app is bursting with charm, but it also delivers security at a good price.” - PCMag “All you have to do is turn the switch to “ON” and you are protected.” - WSJ “TunnelBear, the gorgeous VPN app that wants to bring online privacy to everyone.” - VentureBeat PRIVACY POLICY: *Spoiler alert* TunnelBear has a strict no-logging policy.

  • Does the basics

    By Correl2000
    The tunnel is there however the sites and servers know your not in the country or know your connected through a vpn or proxy. This renders it useless to what I need it for.
  • Not working with BBC

    By JemJem999
    TunnelBear no longer works with BBC iPlayer app on iPad/iPhone. Seems to be blocked as I now get a message when in France stating BBC iPlayer is only available when in the UK.
  • Furry good

    By Marstefi
    Very pleased with this system. Thanks, Tunnel Bear
  • Better option than VPN Express

    By Albutie
    Works better than VPN Express which does not seem to be able to hide itself from sky tv so definitely won’t protect you. This app however does. It seems not to want to connect to my NAS god knows why that is. If only you were able to purchase data rather than sign up for subscription, then this app would be rated higher.
  • Works at school

  • I was looking for a vpn and found a bear

    By PaulMonk

  • Cant even get in!!!

    By Heer Ejaz
    I’ve been trying to make an account in both phone and pc and it’s not even letting me in. Keeps saying that server is timed out.
  • Thank you

    By bearest0
    Excellent app
  • Waste of time & Money

    By The Tech Master
    Glitch, annoying on ipad and doesnt work on MacBook Pro 2017 at all!!! In fact the App froze my laptop up many times and was a nightmare to resolve... The TunnelBear vpn is and has also not worked on “ring doorbell” and “Sricam” App so I haven’t been using the vpn as it’s been useless to me! I BELIEVE THIS SERVICE IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE WITH “IOS” and “OSX”
  • Started off really well but now unusable - COMPLETE WASTE, AVOID!

    By rajwaj
    Downloaded this app and loved it so much that I purchased a 12 month subscription. Within a few days it stopped working refusing to connect to the server at all, needed deleting and reinstalling numerous times. Tried going to the support page but I can’t connect to the website at all because of an SSL error so I can’t even contact them for a refund. Feel super ripped off. Please save yourself the aggro and avoid.
