Our Review:

TunnelBear VPN is a Canadian based VPN service noted for its ease of use and simple client installation. They provide both a free and paid VPN service, but what is unusual is that the free service is for the most part similar to the paid service except for a 500 megabyte monthly data allowance.

The only other significant differences are first, users of the free service do not have access to the Australian based servers of the TunnelBear network and second you can only have one device connected to the VPN at any one time.

If you only want to use a VPN to protect public wi-fi connections or for casual use when travelling, this a great choice.
