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.

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.

  • Good.... if you pay money

    By I am really funny
    It’s really good, however I ran out of data in about 2 1/2 hours surfing the web and watching YouTube. I understand you need to make money, but I do wish the data limit was a bit higher, or reset more often. Other than that 10/10.
  • Good app but fails to connect occasionally

    By GhettoEMS
    I’ve used few vpn apps and I thought I give TunnelBear a shot, it seem straight forward you don’t need be technically versed to use it so I paid for the monthly subscription, I would give it more stars But for the fact sometimes it won’t connect. I restart the phone go on airplane mode and try again No luck I’m hoping it’s a bug they working on Otherwise I’ll delete the app soon
  • Fast & reliable👍👍

    It's so fast & rather reliable! The virtual locations are real,no fake! I recommend it for every one.
  • Perfect app

    By hyper1984
    Compared with NordVPN, this service is way better. More reliable on amazon. I’m in the USA and use the optimal server by default for performance. This is faster (early AM speed tests using optimal/closest servers have NordVPN running at 20-40 mbps on a 200 mbps connection while TB runs at 170-220). Love that I can create trusted networks that don’t use the VPN like at home so I can enjoy full speed at home, while automatically getting connected at work (afraid network activity could be subpoenaed if I were sued) and of course to public WiFi for safety. I can also elect to use on cellular automatically or not. NordVPN runs even slower during the day (2-10mbps) and I am so frustrated with them that I purchased the TB subscription even though I recently bought a 2 year subscription from NordVPN. TB keep up the good work and love the performance.
  • First time user

    By Tomaganuk96
    I just started to use VPNs and this is easy to use, and also, bears are awesome. Only complaint is the 500MB limit for free users, but you can expand it via tweeting, installing it onto your computer, and I forgot the third one, but each offers to Grant you 1 gigabyte of available data. How long it lasts, I'm unsure. Either way, I will see if I could upgrade to the yearly subscription, and this is a first for me cuz I don't like subscribing to things. Overall an enjoyable and easy to use app.
  • Can’t get easier and better than this

    By jmk63
    Sweet app, integrates well. Running in 5 devices - 2 iPhones, 2 iMacs and an iPad. Cool.
  • Fun VPN

    By I-Name
    I never knew anything about VPN’s until I saw a documentary on hackers. I thought, well that makes sense, why doesn’t everyone use one? I still don’t understand all the ins and outs, but I saw the reviews for this, so I tried it. Seems to work very well, and it’s always fun to see the little bear pop up. Sometimes it will just automatically log me out, but other than that, it’s probably the most unique and fun VPN out there.
  • Awesome app

    By Gabe72966
    I couldn't play Clash of Clans at my job using their wifi because their network blocks many websites as well as applications on smartphones. I turned this app on and I can now access all my previously blocked apps and sites. Just make sure you turn off tunnel bear when streaming movies because it will chew up your free MB fast. (Unless you get a paid account.) I notice running apps like CoC use up very little of the free data. More than enough to last you a whole month if your careful. Hands down the best VPN app!!!
  • Great, when it works

    By jsmith128
    TunnelBear is awesome, when it’s not blocked on certain WiFi networks. At home it’s great, at work it’s no dice on our network.
  • What happened

    By Minion839
    This app was perfect for the first day. Again “first day” after that it rarely works and I had to delete the app. I tried hoping that updating it would fix it but it never did. I am not downloading this app again even though it was fast the first day.
