TunnelBear Review

Sven Sorensen
Free VPN application that can mask IP address, provide anonymous browsing and make it appear you're surfing from countries like the USA, UK, Canada and many other locations
A review of TunnelBear by Sven Sørensen

With curious governments, spyware and Internet trackers omnipresent today, browsing the web with a little bit of privacy is sometimes a lot to ask for. With TunnelBear, you can use a free VPN application (with 500MB free) to covert your tracks, avoid regional restrictions and access the web with an alternative IP address.

Though 500MB might not seem like a lot, the free allowance offered by TunnelBear is probably enough for moderate Internet browsing if you remove YouTube and Netflix from the equation.

After installing TunnelBear, you're greeted with a nice-looking user interface that provides quick access to functions like selecting a country to browse from, your remaining bandwidth quota and a quick on-off button which connects you to the TunnelBear server. Note that you must create a free account first before using the server, but it's a painless process.

The settings menu of TunnelBear is not to write home about, providing a couple of useful options like showing desktop notifications, launching TunnelBear on startup and automatically connecting to the server if you're using an insecure WiFi network.

One cool feature worth mentioning about TunnelBear is its display of statistics regarding different types of things it has blocked: advertisements, scripts, trackers, social networking buttons and more.

TunnelBear can hide your true IP address and circumvent state censorship.
