TunnelBear VPN is a free, incredibly simple app to browse the Internet privately and securely.

The beautiful TunnelBear app protects your online privacy, lets you access your favourite websites & apps, and secures your connection on public WiFi hotspots.

Try TunnelBear for free with 500MB of browsing data every month. No credit card required. In-app purchases available for premium plans, which give you unlimited data.

Put simply, by using TunnelBear, you can browse from anywhere with peace of mind knowing that your online activity is more private from hackers, ISPs, and advertisers.

TunnelBear VPN for iOS is a really simple app that encrypts your web browsing and data (making it unreadable) as it leaves your iPad or iPhone. It makes public Wi-Fi safe and secure, and also keeps your browsing private from ISPs. Websites and advertisers will have a more difficult time tracking your physical location and browsing across the Internet.

Your browsing habits are personal and shouldn’t be trusted to just anyone. TunnelBear is proud to be the first and only VPN service in the world that has been independently audited by a 3rd party. You can feel confident that we deliver on our promise to secure your data.

One-tap connect: App so simple, a bear could use it.
A VPN you can trust: Along with a strict no-logging policy, we’re the only consumer VPN app to have completed a 3rd party, public security audit.
Global VPN network: With servers in 22+ countries and lightning-fast speeds, access the websites and apps you love. Anytime, anywhere.
Grizzly-grade security: TunnelBear uses strong AES-256 bit encryption by default. Weaker encryption isn’t even an option.
No logging. Your browsing stays private.
Helpful support that always responds within 24 hours.

Best VPN App Ever


The first word that come to my head is just “WOW”. The application is very light safe and secure . Solves my purpose to use the applications which are not available in my home country . Also it helps to reduce data risk and I can freely use it in open public network . So smooth it is ! Very stable and amazing graphical user interface . Best application I have used , I had a bad experience with Nord but Tunnel Bear is just beyond my expectations! The more less location , more less server issues ! Superb amazing , keep it up Team Tunnel Bear !

Great, but a bit slow from India


Honestly a great app but it is slow not only in the latency but also in the bandwidth but definitely would recommend. Would like it it they had an option to use the fastest country other than a few select ones and if they had something where it would auto-detect what to tunnel(websites that track you and websites that are blocked in your region)

3D Touch issue


Whenever I try to disconnect through 3D Touch option then it will take me to the app then it will disconnect. It wasn’t in the previous version i.e on iOS 10 (may be). It should be turned off immediately when you access through 3D Touch, there should be no need to take user to the app first. I feel uncomfortable and there must be many users like me. When you hit disconnect in 3D Touch options then it should be disconnected right away in 3D Touch itself.
