Tunnel bear is a great app, I read through some of the faqs and was able to troubleshoot it myself. Thank you to customer service for reaching out so quickly! (Even on a free account) This app helps me in the bitcoin market by allowing me to be (as far as my trading site knows) in Europe instead of the U.S. which the site doesn't allow anymore. Thanks guys I'll definitely be upgrading once my laptop arrives. 《《☆ UPDATE ☆》》 Here I am several months later still a big fan. Having some trouble accessing sites that are blocked however. Is there a way around that?
This VPN service is great for everyday use and provides a somewhat stable 5-10mb/s connection. I have tested several times almost always maintaining 5 download and upload speeds (just now I tested at 162ms ping, 8.79 download, 6.03 upload). This may not be ideal for gamers, but perfect for everyday use. VPN can easily be disabled for games (this is discussed later) with Split Bear, so there are ways to make this VPN work for you either way. I highly recommend enabling "persistent bear" which disables your connection if your secure connection is lost. By default this is disabled which I almost removed a star for (there should be something warning the user about this). I love the Split Bear feature as well. Split Bear will allow me to allow VPN except for some apps. For example, I can keep VPN enabled for all my apps to securely send data while disabling VPN over Netflix since Netflix detects tunnelbear and will block you until disabled. This allows me to message securely while still enjoy Netflix. I also have VPN disabled through Split Bear for some games which block VPN services. I really love this feature as it prevents me from having to constantly disable/enable the VPN when using certain apps. There really isn't too much downtime for maintenance, and the connection is fairly stable now. Hopefully this service stays this way. I had some connection issues in the past but lately it had been great. Customer service is also very responsive through both email (via website) and their fb.
You can safely ignore the one star reviews, who dont seem to know what they're talking about. I came to Tunnelbear from Cyberghost as they were the only VPN able to (most of the time) establish a VPN in Egypt. Signed up for one year and hoping for the best when in Egypt.
The VPN does what it says on the box, but I can't see myself purchasing the service as the latency drops to over 500ms from 6ms and download speed drops from 80Mbps to less than 4Mbps
An absolutely fantastic VPN for my PC, & Phone. The options that you get to use for different circumstances (like lightweight extensions for your browser & Ghost Bear) is probably the most useful tool available for me. I do wish the monthly subscription payment wasn't quite so expensive. Both software & service are great. So I don't mind a fee. But $10 a month is a little too much. Overall though, Tunnel Bear is the best VPN program I've used to date.
I was living in Panama and could not get on so many sites. And couldn't use Netflix until Tunnel bear. It works great in all Central America
