A powerful cross-platform application designed to help its users experience the Internet as if they were living in another country
Directing your internet traffic through a VPN service is highly recommended if you want to protect your privacy, but also if you need to access websites that are not available in your geographical region. TunnelBear is a small Mac app designed to make the entire process as simple as possible.
Unobtrusive VPN solution that can be turned on with a mouse click
To start using the TunnelBear service, you must register for an account beforehand. TunnelBear allows you to sign up for a free account that comes with a 500MB limit, but you also have the option to get a paid subscription that can be renewed monthly (Giant) or yearly (Grizzly) for unlimited tunneling.
Naturally, when you launch the TunnelBear application, you must input your account credentials to be able to access the service. Keep in mind that the VPN service is not turned on by default: in the TunnelBear status bar menu you must select the server location and turn the appropriate nob on of off.
Effortlessly access services that are geographically limited and protect your privacy
The TunnelBear VPN service provides access to servers that are located in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, or the Netherlands. If you are not interested by a specific location, you also have the option to connect to the closest tunnel.
While using TunnelBear, the service will automatically block any website trackers that might want to extract information about your browsing activity, which means that both your identity an your habits are protected.
User friendly and extremely intuitive VPN solution
TunnelBear transforms VPN tunneling in a very intuitive practice that can be handled even by most unexperienced users: simply sing up for an account and use the status bar menu application to enable or disable the service without having to deal with complex settings.
At the same time, advanced users also have the option to create their own list of websites that are securely tunneled by the app at all times.
