TunnelBear is a cross-platform VPN client that allows you to safely surf the Internet, hide confidential data from prying eyes and gain access to websites prohibited in your country.
The meaning of VPN technology is to encrypt and redirect all outgoing traffic through the so-called tunnel servers, where the real IP address and location are replaced with virtual ones. As a result, for all tracking modules, services, and unscrupulous users, you will be displayed as a user of another country, and the possibility of leakage of personal information becomes almost impossible.
In TunnelBear, you can use several servers in countries such as USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, France, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy and Spain. Working with TunnelBear is very simple: choose any location from the list and use the "On" / "Off" knob to control the tunneling.
Anonymous Internet connections to protect your identity
The purpose of TunnelBear is to help you add an extra security layer to the data transfers that occur between your PC and the remote server by using anonymous services to encrypt the information. With its aid, you can navigate on the Internet without worrying that your data might get intercepted by unauthorized third parties.
Replace your real ID address with a fake one
Aside from securing information, this VPN software tool is capable of hiding your real IP address and assigning you one from another country. As a consequence, you can overcome geographical location restrictions that some websites impose.
Easily configure connection settings
The application requires you to log in to your account, and once you do so, things get very simple. The only intervention from the user’s part is related to choosing the desired country from the drop-down list and turning TunnelBear on. If the connection fails, the diagnose mode can help you figure out what goes wrong.
Once you are connected to a VPN service, your identity is hidden, as the program automatically redirects all the data traffic through a proxy server in the selected location. On the downside, the traffic is limited to 500MB per month, which might be a bit less, even for regular users.
Examine network statistics
TunnelBear displays statistical data concerning the trackers (analytics, ads, scripts, social buttons on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) blocked by the application during your browsing session. It features desktop notifications to let you know about important events, while the ‘Vigilant mode’ is capable of adjusting the security level.Whats New:Fixed an issue where your Bear might lose track of your internet connection if connected using Wi-Fi and Ethernet at the same time.
