TunnelBear VPN Reviews


Tunnel Bear  LWDave  5 star

An outstanding app that lets me surf the net anywhere without fear of someone spying on connection.

Let's try this nickname next

Okay  Let's try this nickname next  2 star

Okay, but I wish I didn't keep getting the same (other) IP so frequently because it's not working well for what I need it to do without me putting in a TON of extra and constant work and still it's not always working. Better than nothing though.


Current update.  KD-09  2 star

The last time it was updated around about the time iOS11 was making its general release; VPN would connect but mysteriously disconnects without my knowledge when using the internet. Before this update it would work but 3d touch support was broken, it is still unusable; these are just some facts and that I highly suggest you double check your work before updating to this version. This includes reinstalling vpn profiles, signing in and out of the app, and uninstalling and reinstalling the app all together. Unrelated, problems do not exist on android’s side since I use both iOS and android.


unreliable connection  K2daM2daK  2 star

No more connect on demand..... why did that go away? Wasn't mentioned in the update log. I can't keep a connection for long enough to switch apps. This is unacceptable. Whether this is a buggy update, or core features are suddenly gone, it's useless.


App no longer stays connected  Deese64  2 star

Since the iOS 11 update the application doesn’t stay connected to VPN. Please fix ASAP


Tunnel Bear  MillerDA8654  1 star

Since last app update I have to manually connect now (my 7s tells me to contact TunnelBear settings) and I'm getting dropped unexpectedly from all TunnelBear sites. I've uninstalled & reinstalled TunnelBear, turned phone off / on - nothing helps. No one is answering my email!! Unsatisfactory - am starting to look for a new vpn.


It Works  Poopooyaya  5 star

That says it all.

Latest update fails to reconnect  John Rozsnyai  3 star

The latest update automatically disconnects when the phone is locked but fails to automatically reconnect once unlocked. Please fix and will get back its 5 stars.


Needs Auto Mode  MtrCtyJoe  4 star

I wish this app would automatically turn on when connected to untrusted networks. Aside from that this is a great app.

@AgroBioDiverse @pfiennes If that doesn't work, I've found VPN's like #tunnelbear really useful

@BaldMan: Just a reminder that you should be using a VPN if you're not at home or at work. @theTunnelBear is my favorite: …


Worth using  Skullfaerie  5 star

If you want a transparent vpn company, I recommend them, I do not get any data lags while using them. And they are also worth spending the money.

Love it


Excellent VPN Service  Sugarchops  5 star

Been using Tunnel bear for a while and never had any issues with it at all.... Does what it advertises!! Love it!!!


Good  SUl7AN_2009  5 star



Not always reliable  Dalbeattiestar  3 star

This app sometimes does not work, although when it does it's great. There have been many times I've needed to get online, but the VPN can't connect so I'm unable to get on unless I turn off the VPN. That defeats the purpose of having it. This has happened regardless of being on wifi or not. This has happened more often since the last update.

Great Graphics  Kenny D  5 star

If it works as good as the graphics it's a 5 🌟. I like I can use it on my computer browser as well.


Tunneling to the U.K. Doesn't enable iPlayer  SiliconValleyNeil  1 star

You can't use Tunnel Bear to watch U.K. TV on iPlayer. Fail. Actively looking for a quality VPN that doesn't sell your data (like HotSpotShield) and was hoping this would work. I have StrongVPN/StrongDNS on my routers that works great and HotSpotShield actually worked for BBC iPlayer on my iOS devices and PC/Macs.


It's alright  Jesi29  2 star

Free for the first 500mb but it goes quickly, so I signed up for their mobile monthly subscription. I've noticed that the vpn does disconnect while using it and sometimes I won't notice that it's been off for hours. If it always always stayed on when it was supposed to, 5 stars. Block ad track would be a nice feature as well.


Great app  tgsauers  5 star

Love the bears!
