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.

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?

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.

    Recently I’m getting “can’t connect. Try later. “ Later can be hours. I’ve had TB for a long time but something has gone bad.

  • Left me out in the cold

    From day one this app slowed down my data on my 7S until I had to turn it off most of the time just to connect. Finally last night cellular data on my phone WOULD NOT WORK at all while I was stuck downtown late at night alone in the freezing cold and needing Uber to work to request a ride! I tried turning off VPN, removing Tunnelbear as a VPN, and deleting the app, rebooted my phone like six times, finally had to do a hard reset on my entire phone and wait while shivering and freezing on a street corner to re-install my apps to call a car. Data finally worked again after that. I will never re-install this app nor trust it for my loved ones to use either. Just too risky losing data at the worst possible time.
  • Love it

    It’s good, gives me free data, no bugs, and it helps very much when your camping also at home
  • 👎👎👎👎👎 UNUSABLE 90% of the time!

    Quite possibly the most overrated app in the App Store. This VPN works in countries where you don’t really need VPN, where it’s just an extra insurance. Basically the West. Mainland China? Forget it. (In 2 years I’ve NEVER succeeded). UAE, nope.. India? hahaha.. This is one of those “make you feel good” apps which doesn’t really do what it’s supposed to do. In the past I could at least watch news clips from overseas news sites, be it Norway, Sweden, Germany, etc. as long as I selected that specific country. Now when I’m logged in to a VPN tunnel for that specific country I get a “sorry, unable to watch this news clip. You must be in “fill in the blank country” to watch this video.” Not impressed. -> to the developer - yes, I realize some of the countries I mentioned here are “high censorship places” BUT several totally free VPNs seem to work just fine? This has been ongoing for years. I use TB strictly for “easy” countries. For places where VPNs are a must your service and reliability is appalling.
  • What Happened!!!

    By Hoy Hoy
    Update: Had some issues trying to connect from a couple of locations offering public wifi (Starbucks, my local bank). The app would either take an inordinately long time to connect or not at all, unless I added these locations to the list of trusted networks. There was also some instances of it falling asleep on the job. Also, the vpn icon would fail to show up in the left-hand corner of my iPhone to let me know it was on. Going into the app itself to check, it would assure me that it was in fact running. I have the latest ios software and the latest version of Tunnel Bear running. Today, all of those issues seems to have resolved themselves and I’ve been able to connect in a reasonable amount of time. So far the Tunnel Bear hasn’t fallen asleep and lost connection, and the icon is back in its’ corner! Don’t know why, but I can live with that. The roar is back! *All of a sudden after working great all day, I cannot connect! Just subscribed!
