If you're a traveler like me, you will find that connecting to a public connection in the airport lounges, cafes or any public areas can be very daunting. I take my internet usage very seriously because I don't want to fall prey to malicious hackers, trackers and phishing activities running amok in the net.
So, what do I use to keep my sanity and sense of security intact while browsing privately? TunnelBear, of course! You might wonder what TunnelBear is all about. Let me give you a rundown of what it does here. But before that, what is TunnelBear? TunnelBear is an application you can download to your PC, Mac, smartphones and devices running on Android and iOS. And here are the things which makes TunnelBear a must to use when you're on-the-go:
- Smart private browsing
- Browse sites like Netflix, Pandora and other inaccessible sites from your country as if you are living in another country
- Uses the concept of VPN (Virtual Private Network) for a private, safer and secure browsing experience while on the go
- Block the website trackers like ads, analytics, scripts, social buttons that track everything you and your family do online.
This application is very simple to download, install and use. Check out my step-by-step illustration below to help you get going after you have downloaded the app from the following places:
TunnelBear download page
TunnelBear iTunes store
TunnelBear Android Play store
When you click on the drop down menu beside the ON and OFF knob, you'll be given several choices on which country you want to connect to.
And if you want to tweak the preferences for your usage of TunnelBear, just click on the gear.
Once you've set up your preferences, you can now start browsing as you would in that country you have chosen.
And just to give you a scenario on what it's like without TunnelBear, check the photo below.
TunnelBear is a great app that I highly recommend to everyone who's always on-the-go and needs privacy, security and safety while browsing. Currently, you can sign up in TunnelBear and choose the options you want as a member. You can get the cute bear cub, go Giant or be the Grizzly. Your call!
