With online scams, data theft, and censorship on the rise, virtual private networks (VPNs) have practically become essential tools for safely browsing the Internet. While the benefits of VPN are numerous, the main purpose is to encrypt your data and help you stay anonymous online, protecting you from would-be hackers, intrusive marketers, and even your own Internet Service Provider (ISP). Though there are plenty of VPNs to choose from, Not all are created equal. Some can significantly slow your Internet speed, while some of them might not even encrypt your online browsing properly, making you even more vulnerable while browsing. Still others are extremely complicated to use, and end up invading your privacy for their own benefit. Luckily, TunnelBear tackles all of these issues with its incredibly secure and easy-to-use VPN.

For starters, using TunnelBear isn’t quantum physics. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to do anything, as TunnelBear is set to launch at every startup. To simplify, there is an on/off switch, but that’s the extent of it. If you can turn on a light, you can use TunnelBear.

While it may be simple to use, rest assured that TunnelBear uses multiple sophisticated techniques to encrypt your connection. If your Internet gets disrupted for some reason, TunnelBear instantly switches to “Vigilant Mode” and blocks all the unsecured traffic. And though there are many concerns about whether VPNs keep track of their users’ activities, TunnelBear explicitly guarantees private browsing to all of their users.

It is also one of the few VPNs where reading the privacy policy doesn’t require a trained lawyer. Staying true to the ease-of-use policy, TunnelBear’s privacy policy is easy to read. However, don’t take their word from it; TunnelBear conducts annual and independent security audits that you can read for yourself.
