Easy to set up, easy to use

Tunnelbear is bear-y easy to set up and a snap to use for iPhone, PC, and Mac. It's reliable as well, and easy to see when it's on by the VPN icon on the top (the status bar). I use it to secure and make private my activity whether I am getting around blocks at work or school, or securing my activity in a public WiFi. Also, Tunnelbear's customer service is first-rate! Not one of those offshore deals. I strongly recommend the service over other similar services I have tried.

5 months later, I am still just as happy. I use the VPN service especially with my Mac and iPhone, with consistent & reliable connections, and with a variety of public WiFi hotspots, hotels, travel terminals, etc., where I would have not dared to use their unprotected networks, but I feel very safe when I use TunnelBear for VPN and still recommend it highly. Try the generous free amount of data (no credit card needed), and then you will see that you'll be very happy and safe.

Great, especially public wifi purchases

I downloaded this app prior to leaving for a trip to Cabo. As expected, I wanted to use my iPhone to make an online purchase and to download a game app for my son....both of which would require my private info via the hotel's public wifi. I turn on Tunnel Bear as needed and then turn it off to conserve the free amount of data that it allows. I also got another vpn app to double my data if needed. I'm not vpn expert so I can't say if this is the best vpn app, but it's very easy to use and simply having the friendly bear logo and catchy name will hopefully remind my other family members to use it when needed. The hotel's free wifi wouldn't allow me access a few of the times I tried but it did work most other times. That's why it might be good to have two or more vpn apps.

Pleased with some countries BUT.. 👎🏻

Good for countries where you don't need VPN.
For countries where a VPN is a must, such as China (red china), UAE and Russia this VPN is basically worthless. :-(

Tried it in mainland China a few weeks ago (again) - unable to connect. The message I keep getting is "Negotiation with the VPN server has failed." No matter which country in the scroll down menu I select - it always fails.
Tried it in India - numerous times! - still unable. The same message. The two countries where a VPN truly is a must!! 😖
(In Germany, UAE, Thailand and Hong Kong it works great.)
Free VPNs, such as Onavo for example - work great in those VERY! VPN unfriendly countries. ...and by the way, "HideMy@&@" vpn works here too.
So why do those two free VPNs work while the only one I actually paid for doesn't??
Disappointing. 😦😦😦😦😦

Also, why isn't there a "contact support" link within the app itself? The "help" icon takes me to all kinds of generic answer/response links but I still can't send a comment/question directly to you?
I wanted to submit a screen shot of the Negotiation with the "VPN server has failed" screen.

Please fix those problems. China in particular blocks a plethora of websites and apps and I want to be able to use your VPN there.. It's almost embarrassing how bad your software is. :-(
Please fix this problem.
