Like bears? Like internet privacy? Looking for more security when you connect to a public WiFi network? Well, TunnelBear might be the VPN for you – this is an outstanding VPN service with a great sense of fun across its branding.
Our grizzly friends are everywhere with this one, from the illustrations and animations used throughout the Windows, MacOS and mobile apps to the names of specific features and even what the subscription plans are called. This gives TunnelBear a charm that other VPNs can’t match.
Beneath its furry exterior, though, TunnelBear does the same thing as other VPNs. It creates an encrypted virtual private network connection between your device or computer and a server elsewhere. This both protects your data on its way to and from the Internet and disguises your identity and location. What’s more, to any websites you visit and services you use, it looks like you’re based in the same city or country as the VPN server. This allows you to get past any censorship or content blocks that would normally stop you in your tracks.
