If you've heard a bunch about VPN services recently, it's because they are going mainstream — and for good reason. In our increasingly-connected world, they are super useful for keeping your private information private. If you regularly bank or shop online, use public Wi-Fi hotspots, or if you want to access content that's region-locked, a VPN is for you. A VPN works by extending an invisibility cloak across your activity to better anonymize it, stopping you from being tracked or having your information intercepted.

TunnelBear is aimed at novice VPN users with super easy-to-understand documentation and minimal technical jargon. It's not the most feature-packed, but is probably one of the simplest options out there and has apps for pretty much every device you'd want to use it on. It has over 6,000 servers around in 22 countries, 24/7 customer support, and 256-bit data encryption. TunnelBear also clearly states that it will never monitor, log, or sell any of your browsing activity and the company instructs independent security auditors to assess its service annually. There are apps for Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and more, and a single subscription can be used simultaneously on any 5 supported devices.


We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:

1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service).
2. Protecting your only security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad.

We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
