What is TunnelBear for Mac

TunnelBear is a subscription-based virtual private network (VPN) service and companion app, enabling you to browse the internet privately and securely.

Features
  • Browse privately - Secure your data and hide your IP address behind a bear.
  • Experience the Internet as if you’re in another country - A TunnelBear can "tunnel" you around censorship and blocked sites to another country of your choosing.
  • Zap creepy trackers - Block the website trackers (ads, analytics, scripts, social buttons) that track everything you and your family do online.
  • A TunnelBear is really, really simple - On. Off. On. Off. You get the idea.
  • TunnelBear comes in three subscription tiers:
    • Little: 500 MB per month; free
    • Giant: unlimited; $9.99/month
    • Grizzly: unlimited; $49.99/year

See the pricing page for full details.

To the developer of Tunnel Bear, I am asking for a refund of the year's subscription I purchased a week ago. I tested it under the free 500MB trial after 2 years using BTGuard. TB was perfectly stable then. I was impressed by the simplicity of the interface, appreciated the wit, and was pleased by the wide selection of servers in many countries. Once I had a paid subscription, TB first refused to download bit torrents until I discovered this could be overcome by activating the TCP override option. Then I started having infuriating problems with connection stability, disconnecting and reconnecting on average every five minutes and showing notices that it was having trouble creating secure tunnels. Un-clicking TCP override or changing other of the minimal options had no effect on this problem. If TB worked, it would be one of the best utilities of its kind, but as it is unusable (for me), I can only give it a half-star for effortless installation. If it doesn't work, it is more than useless, it is an annoyance and best and perilous at worst! A pity I now have to uninstall it and may lose the money I paid for the subscription!

TunnelBear functionality and integration is amazing and flawless. They have a companion iOS app that will use your same account (no extra charges!) and VPN with your mobile device. The whole experience is smooth, and "it just works" just like Mac software always used to. Support? AMAZING! Super great people handle your email support, and are very helpful. If you need VPN, go for TunnelBear. The rest don't compare.

I have given two genuine email addresses on set up but sadly I haven't received a confirmation to either reply, so I'm unsure whether if it is protecting my machine.

Easy to use and nice looking application. This bear is awesome. It really does what it is developed for. Many countries available on the list. User friendly interface. You even have the option of trial version with 500 or 700 mgb of encrypted traffic. Websites are loaded pretty fast.

Wouldn't accept a real but throwaway email address during registration of a free account. Why would a privacy-minded free VPN care about what email I use? Sorry, I don't trust it.

Great application! Allows you to hide your IP and surf incognito. Few clicks and the content of the website restricted in your country is available. I give it the thumbs up! You should give it a try

Tor is slow. Some websites are inaccessible when using TOR. TunnelBear is much better. +++++

TunnelBear is probably the best VPN service among all I've ever used. It's not only simple and intuitive, it features a great design as well. Another good thing about the service is that basic features are free. You can decide whether you want to upgrade your account or not on your own. Pros: - Stable and fast, it takes no longer than 30 seconds to connect - Cross-platform, I use it on my iMac, Windows 8.1 laptop and iPhone - The bear is awesome Cons: - There could have been more countries in the free version Bottom Line: It's difficult to find a free app with a functionality of TunnelBear.

This app is easy to use, even for me. The price is quite good, but to bad the connection speed is not good from my country.

Perhaps someone else can explain why anyone would pay for this when there is (and has been) Tor for free.
