TunnelBear Editor's Review

While internet access has become cheaper and faster over the years, certain downsides of the World Wide Web still looms and affects users. Even if you have the resources and monetary capacity to afford a blazing fast and unlimited internet connection, certain online services still may remain inaccessible to you. Certain Google services are not accessible to users outside the USA for example. In certain countries, Governments impose some web access restrictions on citizens as well. However, there are options to override those region wise web access limitations. With capable VPN software, you can bypass the boundaries and access the web freely. One such contender is TunnelBear.

The company, based in Canada, offers average PC users the means to bypass region based web access restrictions easily. It is really user friendly and comes in free and paid packages. The free package comes with data capping. It runs on PCs with Windows Vista and later versions. You can get 1GB data free with entry package by tweeting about the service, which is pretty cool. The paid packages are also wallet friendly.

To use services of this VPN app, you need to log in to an account online and the rest is simple. The UI is minimal and appealing. You just need to turn the VPN service on and select a server from drop down list. There is a diagnose mode bundled in as well.

TunnelBear effectively hides your system’s default IP and redirects data traffic using its own proxy server. It not only allows you to access web services and sites otherwise prohibited in your country. Your PC can be hidden under its IP and confidential and important data can be kept safe from prying eyes online. The benefit is that you do not have to configure any complex settings to use the protection of VPN service.

TunnelBear lets you access several types of websites and online services without hiccups. It supports Skype, major chat clients and IRC for example. The downer is that it does not support usage of P2P apps. It will dishearten those users who download gigabytes of movies and apps. The app comes with a 'Vigilant mode' which can be enabled to find out websites trying to track your web usage patterns or using cookies.

The app comes equipped with 128bit OpenVPN protocol. It is adequate for home users. In TunnelBear website you can find a Help and FAQ section which is quite detailed and useful.

Positive Points:
•    Minimal, appealing UI.
•    Superb ease of use.
•    Diagnose and Vigilant mode.
•    Supports major web applications.

Negative Points:
•    No support for P2P services.

Conclusion:
TunnelBear is a capable and user friendly VPN service that is aimed primarily at home users. The service is very simple to set up and use, even for novices. The app UI is minimal and attractive. You can bypass country based web access restrictions while availing benefits of IP address shielding. Its 128 bit OpenVPN ensures your data remains safe. Except lack of P2P support, the app scores well in all grounds.

Rating:4.5/5
