Doesn't work with Android 11. Wasted a lot of time trying to get that to work. It worked elsewhere no customer support, just idiot robot support. TunnelBear management sucks. They will waste your time. A month later, still nothing but trouble from TunnelBear. And there's no option for getting help sometimes. You never know if it will work or not. They never have anyone answering a telephone.

Oh no, that doesn't sound right. Can you let our Support Bears know what the problem is by reaching out at tunnelbear.com/support? We'll be happy to look into it for you.

Easy to set up, no perceptible slowdown in speeds for my uses. (Browsing, streaming music and videos, but am not a gamer, so can't offer opinion there.) On rare occasions will interfere with use of a web site or app and I have to disable it temporarily-- eg, editing Wikipedia or some but not all functions of Google Earth-- but that's only a minor inconvenience and not a deal-breaker. Have recommended it to friends and would do so again.

It has already helped me in two great ways. In reference to my Amazon account being locked out because they did not like the fact they could not track or read mail. Secondly , my cell phone carrier stated they wanted me to deactivate the VPN because that was the problem I could not do certain things because they could not track or read messages. I said NO! So what does this tell you? TunnelBear is Great!!!
