Reviews From google play store

It's unfortunate that once I purchase the premium membership, that it no longer works. I've tried multiple wifi connections in different locations, all of which have great/good signals and I still keep getting server errors. Tried everything in the Help section of the app but nothing work. Really frustrating that I literally have my money away for nothing.

Works as described. Simple interface. The rebooting problem I had on the Note5 is no longer a problem. It appeared to be related to a system update failure. Apparently, AT&T was no longer supporting the older phones. My old phone would try to fetch and install the system update. It would fail every time with a reboot at unexpected times. So, I updated to a current phone on a different network and now the app works flawlessly.

Great app. One issue I've experienced since moving to Android 10 is that the quick launch icon greys out when in use, but lights up when disconnected. Should be the other way around. Have contacted support who adviced they are aware of the issue, but don't have an ETA for the resolution. Still waiting for the fix.

Don't waste your time... Firstly, the App doesn't allow for "ALWAYS CONNECTED...like Express VPN or Nord VPN DO! Then, even when you allow it to choose the location for you "AUTO"...It merely sits there and tries to connect but just doesn't! Because I read a good review from a trusted source, I thought I would try out their VPN...

So for the free VPN it worked just fine in China, it had a 500mb cap and it was slow but it was free so its expected. Then I paid for the premium and it worked almost perfectly for a day or two and now it's so darn inconsistent. It will connected to a server then work for a couple of minutes and disconnect and search again it this happens constantly. I paid to use in China and it has been infuriating. This has been promoted by so many as workable in China but it's not that great.

I live in india and so the subscription price is in rupee and says 120 inr or something, around $2.40 AUD. When i go to pay with my Australian bank card it jumps up to $12 AUD. Which is a huge rip off and not worth a month subscription. My netflix is cheaper. Also its been over a month and i sent a tweet which did nothing, no new data on the free subscription yet. So uninstalling and giving q negative review

It just works! Seamlessly reconnects on every network with imperceptible delay/lag. Selective filtering of apps is very helpful. Useful to hide my a$$ and also enjoy online streaming services which would otherwise cost much more. Works cool on my Samsung phones. Great job. Highly recommend.

It never connects from Egypt. I am sick of trying. Please fix that. Egypt doesn't allow VoIP and I want to make a WhatsApp call. I tried the support and the website is always down. TunnelBear is terrible and they get paid to keep it that way.

After several years trouble free use of this vpn I find I am no longer able to log in or activate it. Believing that I have forgotten my password and sending several requests for a reminder nothing has happened. Whether or not it is because I am working in Oman and if the government has blocked this vpn I don't know.

Good app. Free version has only 500 mb per month but if you don't need vpn other than in special occasions, it works out okay. If you need more, you just have to pay, which is understandable.

A very good VPN, especially with it being free. Will be amazing if there was a bigger data limit, though can't have everything. Overall, Had pretty good experiences with it.

Great VPN, even if you don't pay for it. Does what it needs to for free, and has little bear animations to make safely connecting to the internet even more fun than it already is.

I keep trying to play and download videos but everything I try to do with the VPN tells me it is blocked and I must turn it off. If it forces me to turn it off and not use it what is the point of having the VPN. Please help me on how to stop this from happening.

Works well when it works, but sometimes it just spins trying to connect and wont connect. It also wont let me cancel the connection, even when force closing. It just keeps spinning

I Had trouble using the app cause it works for a little while then I get the error notification and I have good internet connection the app also glitches here and there the app also tellse that I have to resign in to my account.

THE BEST TRULY FREE VPN OUT THERE. 500 megabytes per month is very decent. If you want more, you have to pay. But the free account is perfect how it is. Thank you TunnelBear.

I don't why but the app has some. Problem i press connect and it just froze for a while then it will give me some suggestion to i do most of it and it still won't work ????

This one is a good app! Different from others. But today I can't use it because it can't connect to the server, it loads too long even though I have my mobile data on.

Been using Tunnelbear for years on several devices now and have no complaints whatsoever. A huge shoutout to the customer service who recently helped me with a question I had. You guys rock! 🤘🏻

I consider TunnelBear one of the best VPNs in the world; secure, fast and reliable. I've never had issues with it. I highly recommend it, I am sure that you won't be dissapointed.

The app is incredibly glitchy for some reason I cannot connect to USA and it gets stuck with the VPN on and in the connection screen so I have to restart my phone every time I use the app.

So far it has worked great. I used it when out of the country to access Pandora radio, which would not play unless I tunneled to the US.

The trial/free version is actually nice and decent. Haven't managed to buy the premium version, but possibly a good one as well.

Great features on the free service. Super simple configuration makes it accessible even to non-technical users.

I'm using the premium version. Always disconnects. No option to keep VPN always on. "Always on VPN" is not supported by this app

It's a great app. I would give it a 5 star but I couldn't use it for about 2 days. Just didn't connect at all. It's working much better again. Thanks guys

Though the app works as promised. I am a user in India and the screen showed INR 1050 for a 1year subscription when I subscribed I got charged INR 4600 . Immediately cancelled the subscription but money not refunded

Its functioning erratically. sometimes it won't connect at all. It used to work perfectly so I'm really confused

Solid VPN service been using it for quite a while now on PC and Android and it's always a fast reliable service.

This app is awesome it works so great and speedy. But it need some improvement in connecting and free data sum to increase.

Brilliant vpn and let's you watch geo blocked TV in a instant or get what you normally pay for free 👍. A definite 5 star app and a must for anyone needing a free vpn.

Tunnel Bear worked with both settings (Ghost Bear and Vigilant Bear) set "on" simultaneously prior to the October 28, 2019 update. The update damaged some functionality with Ghost Bear. However, Tunnel Bear gave me a rapid response, exchanging several emails with me. They gave good advice and a hot-fix, so all is well, now. Five Stars, again! Thanks!

This VPN was recommended to me and it has been working well. It is not complicated to use. I would recommend this to others. I did have to turn off the RAWWR after it came through my speakers, scaring everyone in my house! I lived in Toronto for 3 years. It is my favorite city and I was pleasantly surprised that they are based out of the "6".

Very inconsistent. Does not work when you most need it. And that's paying monthly sub.

At first it worked out well.I mainly used it for japan. A few weeks ago it stopped working and couldn't connect to japan. Every time I tried to connect to japan and search either an app or a website restricted by them, would say that i had no access to it. I even created a new Google account with locations-OFF, deleted all cache from every single app using the android Myapps tab and an app that erases junk. I went as far as to download Tunnelbear again and make a new account in it with all the other options above. What I did: On Android 1-Closed all data from my phone by turning off wifi and my own data 2-Restarted my phone 3-erased all cache from all apps that are connected to my google account or location using the pages i view like googleplay, chrome browser or youtube etc. 4-Made a new Tunnelbear account 5-With that tunnelbear account I made a new Google account 6-I open Googleplay with that account alone 7-open the account info through Googleplay and check that my country is japan But only see United-states. 8-I open my google profile and went at the security tab only to find that my last login location is in United States. 9-I tried other vpn connection such as hong kong. While some would actually work and change my location. Others would stay connected at United States and kept me from away from the content I wanted. So although it worked for some time, it still failed me in a later date even after doing every troubleshooting in the help section of tunnelbear web. So I went with a different VPN. Although it costs money, I can still use the free trial on different burning accounts every 7 days. It would be awesome if TunnelbearVPN worked again like before. That would boost my rating from 3/5 to 5/5

Please I'm unable to login with my details again, I just logged out my details but now it seems difficult to log me in again, all I'm receiving now is log in again, please do something about this please

Doesnt work. Tried to watch something it still knew i wasnt in the uk. Now it wont connect at all for spain to the uk!

This app is disappointing because it doesn't have a setting to turn on for WIFI only... I don't have unlimited data, so its not practical to let it run unless I need it or am on Wi-Fi... meaning I have to open the app and manually turn it on every time. Very inconvenient. Which is a shame because tunnel bear otherwise is fantastic!

I like this app but some times when i disconnect and reconnect it just don't connect and i have to force stop it to make it work again

Great app-and cute too. Has different options on different devices though. On my phone I can choose for it to automatically activate when it determines that I'm on an insecure network but that option isn't there on my (brand new) tablet. One annoying thing is that it keeps asking me to tweet in support but I don't have a twitter account. The notification won't go away either. I wrote to them and they emailed me back right away though.

App shuts down in the background and doesn't tell you and it doesn't even try to reconnect.

Really helpful, love it.. I will recommend to my friends and my co workers,.. I hope the one who create it will do something more.. Tnx for this amazing app..

Easy to setup and use for someone like me who doesn't want to configure a VPN. All you do is just course a country, hit a button and wala. It goes. Though some sites I use can tell I have the VPN on so then I can't use those sites unless I turn it off. Even with the ghost mode turned on they still know. But most of the time I'm all good. And I greatly enjoy the simplicity of this vpn.

Very Useful and reliable. Really Free. 500MB per month +1GB for sharing on Twitter per month.

Very good app saved me a headache for Xbox redeem a code being in different regions was able to tunnel to the region and make my problems disappear thankyou tunnel bear

The Tunnelbear VPN app is very user-friendly ...and connects to other networks quickly.

Now owned by McAfee (with US data unprotection vs Canadian) - just look elsewhere! Too many security failures by McAfee.

I loved TunnelBear VPN enough to pay for the full price version. Now the bear can't tunnel. It seems to have occured after the Android 10 update. What can we do? Refund? Paying full price for an app that doesn't work isn't fair to the customer. I will consider updating my 1 star review after an improved update to the app is released. One that works. 🐻

Fast and reliable. But it did not give me my free data monthly.

After several emails and 3 weeks of buying the subscription. NO help on the matter and NO resolution of the problem. Today is 31 Oct 2019. I have bought the 1yr plan and now each time I try to connect it gives me an error connecting to server.I have tried this on multiple networks and on mobile services. The free version was working fine and the paid has just messed it up. The error 429 comes up when I log in the website to check about the issue. Makes no sense to me. Hope someone can help !

Does what it's supposed to do, for several years. Unobtrusive, works as a defacto, reliable VPN. I have a couple antivirus, trojan, worm apps which I run on occasion. These clean out cache and ghost file and any undesirables. I also use Firefox and the Duck variously as browsers, but the Bear is always there. I did turn off the obnoxious growl.

Great free VPN. Best free one i've used. For bypassing restrictions to just simple internet browsing

Didn't work in Shanghai(china)even took the paid version for a month. Tried the hongkong servers but to no use.

This I the worst app I've paid 2x for upgrade and still have issues with connecting and staying connected.

Great VPN, my only problem is that I can't get free data on the app anymore

It's like an online visa. 'Go' anywhere in the world, digitally. But Netflix has caught on. Eish.

completely unfunctional, when i tried to get a verifycation code it did not send me a email at all!

Great app - never had any problems. I totally recommend it.

Will not stay connected. Will not connect at startup. Every time I contact support they say use the latest version. I do. No other suggested steps other than what I have already done. Don't waste your money.

Works well almost everywhere. I think some networks block VPNs.

Generally reliable, would like it to automatically reconnect when it picks up a known WiFi connection, which it seems to only do occasionally. Doesn't work with a lot of streamed content from bbc/amazon prime etc, and there's sometimes a noticeable drop in speed but all in all its pretty good. Easy to use.

I bought a year's subscription and it worked well for about 10 months but I can no longer connect as there is an 'error'. I've checked reviews and this seems quite common so sadly as my year is up in November, I will be cancelling and uninstalling.

I love this app but it's not working today, please fix or guide me on how to fix it.

Great app works first time everytime. Wit sh free version had more data allowance!

Pretty much the best I've used. Only drawback is that you dont get a lot of free use before you're capped. I'm considering paying though because I really enjoy this service.

It's a good vpn helps in securing proper channels and a good list of areas to chose From

Worked great for me. Only "downside", and I say this lightly because the service is great, is that it doesn't get you around geo-restrictions. Would recommend this and the price was very fair (I went with the paid subscription which isn't necessary).

Live this app. Currently in Asia and still able to do fast connections.

Very disappointing that I can't pick where in the us it's just auto and shows the bear in the central us I'm nowhere near it. It also frequently disconnects and turns itself off even with vigilant bear on. I used pia before tunnel bear and it was better please add a server list. I want. To see servers near me.

Feel lil more secure but absolutely uses way too much data. That is the only concern I have. Can not find any info on the cause of so much data. In gigs is what it uses. More than any other app I have.

It's just I purchased this vpn and not even getting connected by trying everything I think for UAE subscribers its waste of money probably for whole middleast subscribers

Great experience so far after the logging in issue was resolved. But TunnelBear button in the navigation bar doesn't do anything. It's always toggled on and if you hold it takes you to the system settings of the app, so it's useless.

Xbox live... I hot spot my Xbox with my phone, and this works wonders!!! I play a lot of FPS games, and the quality of my connection is solid.. before it would take forever to find a match, now it works just like you would expect it. Thanks tunnel bear!

Great! Now i can watch "unavailable for your country." videos.

works as it should, however, i do have a bit of difficulty with my new android 9 box , just can't get it connected, tried the listed options, old box just works well

Love this app. It does what it says. No adds, no hassle. Works like charm. 1 feedback from my side, monthly data should be 1gb instead of 500mb.

I really do like the VPN, and I've never had any problem.. But for 4 days, it has been notifying me of an error in connecting to the server.. I don't know what is wrong, but please look into it if you can? I'd be grateful..

Great! I wish it could offer more in the free part of it's service

The app hangs and connect and disconnect tab gets stuck..

It's good speed VPN.Everytime I connect to a location vpn on this app I always check the IP address first and write it down so yeah I have ip list of tunnel bear.The big problem is, 2 of your location vpn: Singapore n USA often being used for illegal activities to hack my websites wordpress based,I used good firewall so it recorded the ip address n activities.So I must block that ip addresses.It's disappointed for me to know your service being use for that!!

Frequently disconnects & reconnects greatly slowing data transmission.

Awesome!!!!! This is the best VPN I've ever used!! The graphical representation are funny though..the app is very useful and smooth! Plans are also cheap and affordable...and the best part..no Ads.. thanks tunnelbear LLC for the wonderful app!

I keep trying to use it and eveytime it says concecting forever. I cant make the bear go anywhere. Sometimes it gives me a error. I tried everything to try to make it work!

Very simple to use. Some problems blocking legit app installation and hiding location for apps like Netflix. Help via email is quick and effective.

After some starting problems app works good Can recommend (Australia-the Netherlands)

Subscribed for one month and can't connect except 2 country. Not spending money anymore. Let down by you guys. Because I uninstall another vpn app thinking you guys are better

Taking to long to connect service has been very poor the last 3 weeks in US, Canada and Europe. Many times over an hour to connect. May have to move to new service

Works as expected, nice and clean user interface. Always using it at unsecure places, never had any issue so far. Rawwwwr

It's a really nice app except for few flaws like sudden shutdown and sometimes login issues.. overall its ok... value for money. Definitely needs some improvement for 5 star rating.

It's honestly a great app, but I just wish there was a way to provide more data because what's provided goes so quickly

Very good, no complaints about the connection. My only gripe is that the user interface, though visually appealing, isn't the easiest to use.

Brilliant 👍 just a bit more data 👌 if poss on free version .

It worked great for the past 2 years until recently. For some reason all the yellow tunnels are gone and the vpn will load and never connect.

I love this app! I don't experience any disconnection and it's not forcing me to pay for a subscription which could get really annoying. The only VPN that worked for me so far

Great VPN service. They set you up with a reasonable amount of data for free. Also the UI and visuals are wonderful. Something about a bear in a pipe is hilarious:)

It will work only once till it is not showing error connecting network. After that no matter what you try it connecting. It won't.

Im really disappointed it used to work really well but the connection is so slow i dont cair who get my information they can take the 12 bucks out of my account and my internet would be faster.

Wish this app would stay connected, except when I turn my phone off. I have to start it everytime when I am not active.

Love their UI and UX. Needless to say the product works like a charm. Brilliant stuff

Anything easy to work with and ways around people hacking eachother Gmail accounts. Its almost refreshing to know that this app isnt commonly known. Which is terrific:)
