After releasing an Android client, TunnelBear just launched their iOS app. As expected, the app is beautiful and easy to use by anyone. It provides safe-passage and privacy for iPads and iPhones to experience the Internet from other countries. Learn about the TunnelBear iOS app.
TunnelBear iOS app is freemium
The app is free but limited to 500 MB per month with two servers located in United States and United Kingdom. Premium plan, available from $2.99 per month, offers unlimited monthly traffic.
TunnelBear for iPad and iPhone can be used by both existing clients (simply login on the first screen) or new ones (register from app).
TunnelBear iOS app installation & usage
The installation is straightforward: the app creates two VPN connections for US and UK servers. In order to connect, go the Settings, VPN, choose the server you want to connect to and turn the VPN on.
I performed several speed tests with TunnelBear and you can see the results below. The connection to the US server was rather slow and for UK it was acceptable. Taking into account that I’m located in Europe this was expected, but I got better speed from other apps with US servers like ibVPN.
TunnelBear iOS app alternatives
There are plenty of good VPN iOS apps available on the market. Thus, if you are not happy with the locations offered by the TunnelBear app you may easily try other solution. Here are some of the solutions that I have tested:
- ibVPN – Unblock Restricted Websites On Your iPhone or iPad With the New iOS App from ibVPN
- New VPN in Touch iPhone and iPad App
- VPNFire – iPhone and iPad Dedicated VPN App
The overall impression with the TunnelBear app was a positive one and I highly recommend it especially for the free monthly traffic.
