What is TunnelBear VPN?

TunnelBear is a public virtual private network (VPN) service situated in Toronto, Canada. Daniel Kaldor and Ryan Dochuk invented it in 2011. McAfee purchased TunnelBear in March 2018.


The History of TunnelBear VPN

TunnelBear is a free virtual private network (VPN) service based in Toronto, Canada. Daniel Kaldor and Ryan Dochuk came up with the idea in 2011. TunnelBear was bought by McAfee in March of this year.



Always On VPN Service

Unlike most VPN services, TunnelBear has an Always On option, which eliminates the need to reconnect after restarting your device. Because reconnection is automated, this function ensures that TunnelBear VPN starts automatically when you restart your device. It eliminates the need to restart and connect the VPN manually every time your device is restarted.


Multiple Connection

TunnelBear may connect up to five devices at the same time. This is excellent for securing all of your family's devices with just one TunnelBear account.


Multiple Server Locations

TunnelBear, like most VPNs, has a large number of VPN servers. As of the time of writing this article, TunnelBear has servers in 26 countries. The United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, to name a few, are among the countries included.
