It’s really really good and fast vpn and its will work with 500kb net speed!
You don’t even have to think the entire thing gets set up automatically upon download. I signed up from the website and then I downloaded the app on my phone afterwards.
When trying to stream video content (Netflix, etc.) I attempt to turn off Tunnel Bear but a window pops up that asks if I want to add that network to my trusted networks or cancel turning off Tunnel Bear VPN. But I want to do neither. I want to be able to stream my content and merely flip Tunnel Bear VPN back on once I'm finished. Instead of being able to briefly turn off Tunnel Bear I have to log out. That's a hassle. Otherwise it's great.
500 MB is nice and runs great, thank you for that at least, but only way to gain that added free data is to invite friends, download the program to my computer, or tweet about it. I attempted the tweet, but the given text was suspicious sounding, I re worded it to why I was using it, and have yet to receive the added data promised.
VPN always connects quickly and is blazingly fast. A must have, especially when connecting on public networks. I use data tethering a ton while on the road and used to neglect connecting to a VPN as it can be a hassle... TB makes it really easy.
Can’t use Netflix abroad so it’s kind of bad.
I’ve tried a few VPNs (Norton, Nord, Windscribe). TunnelBear fits my needs best. I’m using it to secure my data on public WiFi and to have a US connection when traveling abroad. I like that it connects automatically on unknown networks and I can choose safe networks when it isn’t needed at home, etc. I’m currently at a resort roaming from WiFi hotspot to hotspot. It does a great job connecting with each move from access point to access point. This is where the Norton product failed me in the past. I’ve been using the pay version for several months. It does its job without much fuss.
tunnel bear had been my go to vpn for bypassing my school’s unfortunately strict firewall. until it recently got blocked, it has worked very well!
I used the free service for many months before buying the annual. I am six months in and have noticed a material number of websites like google blocking me when I use the vpn. Often I waste time wondering why I cannot connect to the internet only to find I need to disable TunnelBear. I am not sure if other Vpns have this problem but I suspect the fact that TunnelBear has less servers scattered across the globe making their tunnels easy to identify and block. I definitely will not be renewing.
