The best option for users new to VPNs.
TunnelBear is my go-to recommendation for anyone new to Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). If you want to hide your internet traffic, surf safely on public wifi, and generally be more private online without learning the nuances of network security, TunnelBear is your huckleberry. Once click, and you're good-to-go. Really. It's that simple.
That simplicity doesn't come at the cost of security. You're still secured with AES 256-bit encryption- it's just abstracted away in a menagerie of illustrated bears. It's their playful design and amusing user experience that makes them perfect for first-time VPN users. Yes, they have a great no-logging policy. Yes, their security is routinely independently audited.. But the bears. My god, the bears. I can't get enough.
Ultimately, there are two kinds of people in this world: Those that appreciate clever illustrated mascots, and those that hate happiness and want to get hacked. Don't be the second kind.

TunnelBear doesn't have some of the features of other VPNs, and that's a-okay with me.
Except for the occasional service hiccup, TunnelBear's "set it and forget it" experience is perfect.
The illustrations are extremely well crafted. The UI is simple and clear. A+ product design.
