Tunnelbear App Lets You Browse the Internet Without Location Restrictions

tunnelbearVPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, allows many users all over the world to access location-restricted content, and now the technology is available in the Tunnelbear app.

Let’s say you want to watch Netflix while traveling in Europe. Well, you’ll need to mask your location in order to do so. By using a VPN that showed your location as US rather than UK, you can gain access to sites like Pandora or Hulu, just to name a few.

With the Tunnelbear app, using a VPN couldn’t be simpler. Just download the app, and set your location to US or UK. It also has the added benefit of blocking website trackers that gives you unwanted ads and social analytics.

The free version of the Tunnelbear will only give you 500MBs of data per month, so if you really like streaming TV or music, you can upgrade for more access. Each Tunnelbear can be used for one laptop and two mobile devices.
