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.

  • [update] Love it! Latest update w/iOS 11 stopped auto connect

    The company responded to my concern within about 24 hours, very timely, especially over the weekend. They informed me that they were aware of the issue and a fix was already in place, pushed to an update: 2.7.1. I updated and voila! it appears to have been resolved. Thanks for your positive and timely response! Very happy with the performance of the app, as well as the ethics and care from this company so far. I absolutely love TunnelBear. After researching a ton of VPNs and their behaviors and perks, I decided upon TB. No logging. Excellent encryption. Auto connect. No speed loss that I’ve noticed. I only have one gripe with the latest update / move to iOS 11. The VPN never seems to auto connect anymore. Every time either the device loses or sleeps the connection, or switches between cellular and WiFi, TunnelBear disconnects and never attempts to reconnect like it used to. Please fix this. It’s now incredibly frustrating to have to manually go to the app to reconnect to VPN every time this happens. And it happens way more often than I thought or ever noticed. Thanks.

  • Love it

    It is wonderful to have this app at my disposal when trying to conduct private business within my work or other open wifi environment. I cannot count the number of times I've used this at work so the 'nannies' cannot track every move I make. It's fast and it's discreet. But most of all, it's free if you don't need to use it all of the time. Even then, it's a bargain and customer service was very prompt and respectful when I had a question. Can't think of a reason to go anywhere else! Stlricky
  • Incredible. PERIOD.

    By bondj007
    I’ve had an iPhone since 2007 and this is the first review I have ever written. This application deserves this effort as it: 1) does exactly what it says it will do 2) functions easily and seamlessly 3) somehow makes enabling and disabling VPN functionality fun and entertaining. I am more than impressed and hope that other app-makers take notes. Thank you, Tunnelbear.
  • Not always reliable

    By SmezNY
    Often it won't connect to vpns even with restarts. When it works it's great.
  • Best VPN Period

    By Gameman114
    I've been using Tunnelbear for a couple years now and it's the only VPN that I'll use. Its quick, its dead simple to use, and customer service is great. They're the first VPN to have their security audited by a third party. That's awesome! As soon as I found that out I immediately renewed my subscription for another year.
  • Fantastic

  • Very good VPN client

    By Txipadguy
    I use this client any time I’m not on my home network. I’ve traveled to other countries for work and I love having this to protect my data usage. I highly recommend. Their support is great and they a good sense of humor with the bear theme.
