  • Pretty good

    Update May 17: I have noticed that since Mcafee bought them out the app has not functioned as well. Before Mcafee, it would smoothly connect in the background and the kill switch was visibly working - disconnecting the WiFi and then reconnecting once the VPN was active - now it allows my device to be connected to untrusted WiFi for long periods of time before the VPN kicks in. Is my data stream compromised at that point? Furthermore I have had a much more difficult time connecting to networks than I ever did before and have had to delete and reinstall the app a couple of times. This app worked flawlessly last year. Now, not so much. I used the free 500mb allotment for several months before buying a year long membership. Very easy to use, lowest price I could find for a year long VPN, passes all the DNS leak and IP tests I could find and depending on which server I choose doesn’t slow down my connection much at all. I really like the kill switch, auto-connect and trusted network features. My only concern is the shortage of servers. Most other VPNs have dozens or even hundreds worldwide. In a practical sense though this hasn’t impacted me at all.
  • [update] Love it! Latest update w/iOS 11 stopped auto connect

    The company responded to my concern within about 24 hours, very timely, especially over the weekend. They informed me that they were aware of the issue and a fix was already in place, pushed to an update: 2.7.1. I updated and voila! it appears to have been resolved. Thanks for your positive and timely response! Very happy with the performance of the app, as well as the ethics and care from this company so far. I absolutely love TunnelBear. After researching a ton of VPNs and their behaviors and perks, I decided upon TB. No logging. Excellent encryption. Auto connect. No speed loss that I’ve noticed. I only have one gripe with the latest update / move to iOS 11. The VPN never seems to auto connect anymore. Every time either the device loses or sleeps the connection, or switches between cellular and WiFi, TunnelBear disconnects and never attempts to reconnect like it used to. Please fix this. It’s now incredibly frustrating to have to manually go to the app to reconnect to VPN every time this happens. And it happens way more often than I thought or ever noticed. Thanks.
  • The app is great but beware of possible trouble if you lose your account info

    This is especially true if you have changed your Apple ID email and then lose your login credentials. First they asked for a screenshot from my support fee (Which I willingly supplied)it showed that I am paying for a yr of grizzly at a time. I wrongly assumed that since I showed them proof of purchase they would allow me to create a new account and upgrade it if could not figure out what happened with my first account. Instead of doing that they are saying that since I cannot get to the restore purchases screen in the app, my only option is to contact Apple to see if they can find out what email address my first account is connected to... it seems like nothing is ever enough evidence that I purchased a yr subscription... I am starting to wonder what my brother, the lawyer would make of it... perhaps I will ask him

    So, I thought having a VPN to add extra security, especially while I’m using public WiFi (which is rare) would be great, but I have had nothing but trouble with TunnelBear. I can live with using Safari’s version of Google and it recognizing me in the country I have tunneled to, so at least I know it’s working but that’s only about a quarter of the time. The rest of the time the app is disconnecting and I’m constantly having to manually open the app and turn it off/on or tunnel to a different location to get it to connect again and it’s a major pain. When you try to access some of your other apps, if TunnelBear is on, it may not grant you access, and internet pages take longer to download, even in WiFi! My phone is not that old and my software is up to date and all that jazz, blah blah. There is no reason I should be having this much difficulty. I bought one a month subscription and am so glad I didn’t get the full year because I will not be renewing it.
  • Unsubscribing after McAfee acquisition

    1
    By Djs2291
    TunnelBear was great, but I do not trust McAfee to not run it into the ground, and more importantly now that they have a US parent company they will certainly be required to hand over all of your browsing history to the US government without a warrant and without informing the user. I will be unsubscribing, uninstalling, and with any luck getting a pro-rated refund. Edit: I understand that Tunnelbear as a company would like to continue operating independently, and maybe you will. That does not change the fact that you are now subject to US law as your parent company is based in the US, and no matter how much you don't want to surrender browsing data at some point you'll either do it willingly or the Feds will just come take it. I have reached out to support regarding a partial refund but I have not received a response yet. I guess after Tunnelbear gets your money they no longer care, which doesn't inspire much hope regarding your future.
  • Completely stopped internet access

    By The Feeba
    So for the past day I was completely without internet access, even with WiFi. I was really confused, so I tried deleting TunnelBear and that’s exactly what it was. The app only allows you to use 500MB of VPN use per month, which lasted me less than a day. The app does not even notify you when you have ran out. Even when you have the VPN disconnected on the phone it still doesn’t allow internet use, you have to completely delete the app. This VPN is useless, the free version only allows you 500MB which lasts less than a day and then it forces you to put in your password to purchase the premium version. I will never use this app again and I recommend it to no one.
  • Not keeping up

    3
    By Metaweb20
    I’ve been using Tunnel Bear for years and have been extremely happy until recently. I don’t feel that Tunnel Bear is keeping up with the changing Internet landscape and customer needs. Recently Tunnel Bear started pushing my VPN connection point to San Francisco, but I live in Central Time, which means you can’t watch prime time streaming shows as they come on after I’m in bed. Previously my connection point was always NYC area. Tunnel Bear’s response? Log off and on until you win the lottery and get NYC. I do that now, but after 10 attempts, I usually give up. Other VPN services are cheaper with user-selectable connection points. Tunnel Bear also doesn’t offer smart DNS and has given up on outsmarting Netflix and other services. Basically, Tunnel Bear grew a huge customer base, but now they are resting on their laurels and have forgotten us.
  • Easy to use, Cheap, Works Great!

    TunnelBear is a great VPN! It has a very simple user interface that anyone can figure out! Even though it has a limited number of servers, it is a fast VPN. I have had nothing but success with all of the servers I have used, but I prefer to leave it on automatic. 500MB per month might seem a little bit low, but that's for free! I did do the review which gave me 1GB additional for the first month. I have read that you can do that every month for an extra 1GB. I only use VPN for things that are extremely sensitive, so I am perfectly fine with the 500MB. All in all, it's a fantastic application and it's very inexpensive! If I could give this six stars, I would! Great job TunnelBear! As the Bear 🐻 says, Rawr!
  • Everyone should be using a VPN!!

    By skathleen
    I work in the technology sector. When I talk with people about using a VPN on their mobile device or computer, I get a naive response that they aren’t doing anything that requires privacy. So does that mean you are willing to have cameras installed in your house where people can see what you are doing 24/7? I understand the leap in that logic but EVERYONE should be concerned about their privacy and do everything they can to protect it. Once information is “out there”, you don’t get to take it back. TunnelBear is so easy to use and there service is fairly priced. Their service is great. Please get this app and use it.
  • No customer service

    1
    By Tradewindtraveler
    I accidentally bought a year long subscription to TunnelBear instead of buying the monthly subscription as I did not realize the portrayed monthly price was for a one time year payment. I immediately contacted customer support through their email after finding out they have no phone customer service and asked to be switched to the monthly plan and a refund for the year subscription. After a week of receiving no reply at all from tunnel bear even though on the site in says up to a week of wait time, I contacted them again. After contacting tunnel bear at least 10 times I have gotten no reply from customer service. I’m very unhappy with the service and as I am a student the price for a year subscription was a big loss for me. I would not recommend this service to anyone.
