For what it's worth, this is an app called TunnelBear.
Some things you should know:
1.Download and install a VPN, I prefer TunnelBear, because it has a bear.
2.Open TunnelBear, or your preferred trusted VPN, and then open an incognito tab on your phone.
3.Grab your friends phone when he isn't looking and look up whatever you want, not your problem.
>LTT promotes them like they are gods
How is that a mark of quality? That just means they pay up. They don't allow torrenting, they're expensive, they're based in Canada which is a country that's known to spy on its citizens. Private Internet Access is a much better alternative.
Edit: While PIA is based in another Five Eyes country, they provide a much better service for much less than TunnelBear. There are alternatives based in countries that aren't known to monitor anywhere near as much, but I don't have any personal experience with them.
Most companies require off-site employees to authenticate to a VPN in order to connect to their Network. You block that, you get a lot of Corporations very angry very quickly.
I'm more worried they start blocking popular vpns like private internet access, Nord, TunnelBear, etc, while leaving the protocol enabled. Essentially, they would raise the bar of Entry to those who know how to roll their own VPN.
To clarify even more; it's TunnelBear, a VPN service that has had a bunch of pretty big marketing campaigns in the past but actually doesn't live up to the hype or cost. It's just a mediocre service with plenty better alternatives.
If you read this comment and happen to be looking for a VPN service: TunnelBear is decent and has a quite alright free trial, but be sure to do a speedtest and a traceroute on every service you try to make sure you're not routed through some far away country on every request.
Yes. That's exactly it.
I don't know why, though. I've had TunnelBear installed for a while and have not launched it in a while either, so it couldn't have been a recent update. Only recently has it started prompting me for firewall access every time I start things like Chrome. Chrome mostly; as some of the rest of my programs are not prompted every time they're launched (e.g. Discord, Steam, etc).
I switched away from TunnelBear to Express VPN but my main purpose was using a VPN for Netflix while I'm traveling SE Asia.
Netflix blocked every connection I had with TunnelBear - I was able to watch Netflix within my first two attempts with Express VPN.
In the end I told them "I really love the hilarious bear theme but I need a VPN that allows me to bypass Netflix and this wasn't working out. Keep up the good work with the bears."
I've tried probably half a dozen VPNs or so, and Nord has been the worse in my experience. Terrible speeds (I get 150 down normally, would only get 20-30 with Nord on the closest server to my location which was like a few hours away). Inconstant connection, always dropping.
Maybe they changed a few things since I tried it about a year ago, but I wasn't a big fan.
Can't say much about TunnelBear, haven't tried it since I'm happy with my current provider. But here's a good site to compare all VPN providers, and their characteristics
"TunnelBear does NOT log any activity of users connected to our service. Period."
thats what their site says, right there on the front page, and what everyone advertising them ever has said
this tells us that they dont track you to forbid torrenting, they just close the bittorrent ports, this was the first result on google
Based in US
Yes it is.
We offer a free service which gets you 500mb of free data a month. You can use this for however you wish (minus P2P/Torrent traffic).
If you tweet about us, you get a bonus 1GB of additional data, and you can do this each and every month.
EDIT: Our premium plans start at $4.16/mo (billed as $49.99 for the year) and have no data caps. Our monthly plan is $6.99 which also has no data limits.
EDIT2: If you kids would like an AMA or Q&A with the TunnelBear team, I can arrange it (but am about to head out for lunch!).
EDIT: Vypr logs apparently. so mad. fuck vypr. EDIT 2: lots of people recommending PIA to me. found this cool article about them
Not the person you're replying to but:
not all VPNs offer the ability to set it up at the router level, so look for this on their list of features before buying a service, that's step one. TunnelBear is wonderful but doesn't offer this feature for example. VYPR is one I currently use that does. Then just follow their instructions to set it up. As for the DNS thing, some VPN services offer DNS proxies, or use Google open DNS, just google "google open DNS" super easy to switch over.
I can't fairly answer that as I'm biased - I work for the company.
Obviously I want you to use our service and buy our premium account, but at the same time, I don't want you to think that this is an AMA where I'm only promoting that.
Try out PIA, try out TunnelBear. When you sign up for a free TB account, inbox me your email address you used to sign up with and I'll give you premium service for a bit (for free), so you can test the full range of what we can do.
The point of a VPN is so that all your traffic is made anonymous via the VPN so that nobody who is intercepting your traffic can monitor your activity, such as your ISP.
An IP/DNS leak is if somewhere, your computer establishes requests before the VPN can catch them and establish them through its own anonymous server. Therefore, your computer would still be sending connections that somebody who is monitoring your internet (like your ISP) could track.
As far as TunnelBear goes, I have heard of no DNS leaks and I'm pretty sure they even have a page that claims they have no leaks, so I'm not sure what that person is talking about, though I could be wrong.
I wish Android had a native option to block this, kinda like a MSCONFIG for Android. I mean, yeah, I can do this via third party ROMs or apps but really this should be built into Android's settings UI.
The number of apps that launch on my device at boot is just insane - I've disabled over 90% of them from starting up. I shouldn't have to do this though, devs should stop abusing permissions and stop thinking that their app is the most important app for the user so they can abuse the limited system resources.
Examples of some unnecessary apps that start at boot on my phone:
Geez, the list is actually never ending. It's like almost every single app on my phone wants to launch at boot. >_> This abuse needs to stop.
As someone currently using their email offering I'm inclined to believe them. I've been very happy with ProtonMail so I'll definitely be trying this out (although I probably won't switch for a while because I have a year of TunnelBear).
McAfee is an American company. Because of that, TunnelBear is now subject to all American Laws. Which means, any and all data that TunnelBear may gather could be subpoenaed by an American court of law or gathered by NSA, CIA, etc.
NordVPN and PIA are not American companies and the little data they collect from users are not stored on American servers. This puts the users data out of reach from American authorities and if you value privacy, this is a better solution.
Side note: McAfee has a bad rep and to a lot of people, they don't like that name. So when TunnelBear was bought, I would gather a lot of people just flat out left because of McAfee.
TunnelBear is a Canadian company and Canada's laws are more friendly to VPNs. McAfee is an American company which subjects them to American internet laws, which (if I'm not mistaken) include keeping activity logs on users, something they used to advertise that they did not do.
79k is decent but we are bigger then that. 79k is easily done with only 200 people having it on repeat for 24h
global top 50 charts will be impossible tho, we would need 1300 people repeating it 24h.
btw one tip for eu fags like myself who cant login from their country, use free and most simple proxy program called TunnelBear and select USA.
For the love of God, please buy these on Origin itself. Origin is so much of a better platform, compared to the horrible Windows Store.
If it isn't for sale in your region, use TunnelBear or another USA VPN / proxy to purchase it. EA won't judge or ban you for it.
Edit: ~~damn, it seems EA does judge now. Can't purchase it with my Belgian PayPal account. This is a recent change...~~ Most likely not related to regional issues, more common issue (error #10048).
All comes down to trust at the end of the day. I've been using TunnelBear, I mailed them about snoopers two weeks ago or so. Their co-founder got back to me saying they don't keep logs so there's no browsing history etc to give the UK gov, and they're looking into the situation with their lawyers to see how/if this will affect them. I quite like them, have it on both my MacBook and iPhone.
PIA is based in the US. It is all about how the service is set up. TunnelBear, even though they claimed not to keep any logs, was able to track time spent on the VPN for certain accounts, making them possibly vulnerable to US subpoenas. PIA on the other hand actually doesn't keep longs, so there is nothing for the US to subpoena.
> TunnelBear does NOT store users originating IP addresses when connected to our service and thus cannot identify users when provided IP addresses of our servers. Additionally, we cannot disclose information about the applications, services or websites our users consume while connected to our Services; as TunnelBear does NOT store this information.
Wow that was really strange. I got recommended TunnelBear yesterday for an unrelated reason and installed it this morning. And here it is being repped. Yeah the interface is awesome and it's really straightforward.
TunnelBear isn't the best, as it blocks P2P - I recommend PIA (PrivateInternetAccess) if you have the cash, or Windscribe if you can still manage to get a lifetime license for it (which is what I use).
>some websites are blocked in China: Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Instagram, Pornhub, and some more.
For the purpose of information to readers that may travel to China, I'd like to add everything google to the list. You cannot search using google, access google maps, play, drive, sheets, etc. No google services, and for those of us on android that's a pretty big bummer. Especially the missing maps.
So, before you go, install a VPN like TunnelBear, or if you have a good provider back home you can use your mobile data(3G/4G), that routes the traffic through your home country and so is essentially a VPN.
I don't know how TunnelBear performs specifically, but about VPN privacy, you have to consider what you are actually looking for. In terms of avoiding the general "mass surveillance" by your ISP, or making websites that aren't available in your country think you are somewhere else, or making sure nobody can sniff what you do in an open hotel WiFi, they work great. And if the most illegal thing you do online is play pirated hentai games, that's probably all you need. If you want to sell great amounts of drugs online, it's probably not. But in that case I'd hope you wouldn't ask that question. ;)
Also, a VPN installed on your PC is kind of annoying, really the optimal situation would be to have the router do all that for you, but that can be pretty hard to set up unfortunately.

There have also been good ol' tactics with (nearly) unvisible buttons, virus threats to make me feel unsafe etc. Reminds me of a TunnelBear uninstallation screen I saw here some time ago.
Also the only other time I saw a captcha screen while in an unistaller was at this sub by a adware program.
I'm guessing Deseret News works fine?
If your on an iPhone I suggest downloading TunnelBear it's a great VPN app that'll allow you to use the church's wifi and get around the blocks to Facebook and Reddit.
A wise man once said... "TunnelBear is the easy-to-use VPN app for mobile and desktop. Visit to try it free and save 10% when you sign up for unlimited TunnelBear data."
Jokes aside, a VPN is used to change your IP so your internet provider and such cannot see what you are doing, you could be from Canada, but be using a IP from China.
I highly suggest a VPN for laptops and phones used to connect to any WiFi that is not owned by you. You will never know the state of security of any network unless you manage it. At a minimum it greatly reduces the risk of your traffic being watched/collected.
The private account are used to track any request your device makes for some set period of time. It might not record the contents but there will be a log of what domains you connected to unless encrypted via an VPN tunnel.
A lot of people subscribe to the notion I have nothing to hide but using a personal device on work network can introduce risk. Say some app updates in the background your employer if needed could likely see these requests. This just gives them more private information about you.
Example VPN providers w/ limited setup.
We have some tools listed at our website: . Anonymous searching like duckduckgo, tracking prevention like ghostery or disconnect, ip hiding like Tor or TunnelBear, new social network experiments like Sgrouples, plug-ins for Firefox like lightbeam are all places to start.
You're a bit confused I think. LTT terminated their advertising agreement with TunnelBear after the company was acquired by McAfee, who... let's just say they don't have the best reputation! LTT now has an advertising agreement with PrivateInternetAccess which is by far the superior VPN provider to TunnelBear because they really don't store logs and there's no fear of shady activity there.
Be careful what you wish for. If you aren't paying for the product you are the product. If you can't pay, I'd stick to products like TunnelBear that have a free tier but also a clear monetization method.
Late to the post, but I think the culprid was TunnelBear as I've suspected.
You have to uninstall TunnelBear as disabling does nothing. For some reason manual DNS settings were also dropping.
So thanks guys! And oh, uninstalling TunnelBear is heartbraking, just click "uninstall" and close your eyes until it's done :)
I'll just write some meta keywords here so that this post comes up on searches:
DNS windows firewall resets empty empties reverts revert changes automatically
What's the title of this article? As a UK redditor I can't access the international page. Thanks!
UPDATE: If you download the TunnelBear program you can access this page (and other US websites blocked within the UK). It's free and I've now used it to read this and watch some Daily Show clips that I couldn't previously.
Linus Tech promotes shit logging TunnelBear and if you read there terms and conditions they keep LOGS even when they say they don’t ! Everyone should spend 5 mind reading there VPN terms and conditions very very few vpns truly don’t log .
register an account, download, start, flip the switch to UK.
Takes only two minutes to do it. Works fast, after you start the BBC stream, exit TunnelBear (because a free acc has a 500MB limit/month).
Private Internet Access works great on many platforms and doesn't have the annoying issue that some iOS VPNs have of constantly disconnecting. It has many servers, and they denied to provide user data to the FBI multiple times so I trust them.
The only downside being it's popular enough and it's servers are usually the same so Netflix blocks it and sometimes a few websites will ask for you to complete captchas before entering.
However, if you want to save some money and will only be using a VPN on iOS go for TunnelBear, they promise no logs and they have cute bears.

For those like me who are being cucked by Twitch hate for other countries:
Content creators should put their own ads directly in the video. I always use AdBlock, because if not, I waste time by watching stupid ads about products I never need. LinusTechTips advertises TunnelBear, this is an example of a good ad.
Also, google "YouTube advertising illegal drugs". They did so here in Russia. There is a Reddit post about it. Do you want your child watching drugs ad before Disney movie starts? Ahaha, fuck you. I use AdBlock and always will.
YouTube is a sketchy as fuck site, so your argument is invalid.
No. You can anyway use TunnelBear VPN free within 1.5GB every month. With a tunnel in India, your latency will come down significantly. Hence asking for a vote. PS: I'm a user, not an employee of TB. I'd love some help to get lower latency.
Try entering the IP address 184.108.40.206 into the browser instead (TunnelBear's IP address). If you reach a Cloudflare site warning you that "Direct IP Access not allowed" then changing your DNS server should work.
You could try using TunnelBear UK VPN. Just create a new account on , add credit card info (cannot use Paypal) using fake billing address from UK and buy it. Same stuff as in Amazon US. You get the code and can activate it on Steam, at least from Sweden, without any VPN.
Use a free VPN like TunnelBear, set location to USA, click the link under the Burn The Stage teaser for the 2 month trial, subscribe using your credit/debit card or paypal, input any Zip Code in the USA (just google one). Then you can delete the VPN. Subscription works after this process.
For those of you that are about to go looking for alternatives, I'd like to point out two.
ZenMate is another free extension that does what Hola did. They have paid plans available, but it's still free for unlimited data.
TunnelBear is a paid VPN service that offers a Chrome extension for this as well. Their plans are reasonably priced, and you know for sure that your traffic won't be resold. They do offer a small amount of free data each month, but it won't be enough to watch Netflix.
Full disclosure: I've been a paying TunnelBear user for a couple years now. Haven't had any issues :)
Just a tip: if you decide to do it this way, TunnelBear is an easy and free VPN you can use. Just bear (ha!) in mind that all you have to do is activate the download while the VPN is active, wait until Origin starts downloading the game, and then deactivate the VPN. This is important because VPNs (like TunnelBear) have a monthly bandwidth limit per user and it's not anywhere near high enough to download an entire expansion.
There was a Linus tech tips video recently where he said that TunnelBear was being acquired by Mcaffee, which apparently might change how they have to handle keeping data logs or something like that, so that could be something to look into or keep in mind.
Unfortunately, VPNs are unable to work in this country. I've tried several VPNs: Surfeasy, TunnelBear, etc. I've even paid for some months before and it worked flawlessly. The ones behind the curtain has everything under control.
I couldn't find the mirror for this, so I TunnelBeared, downloaded the video, and uploaded it with my own account.
Please note the cast titles in the bottom-right-hand corner. >!"We Need To Talk" = 100% confirmed.!<
Unfortunately I don't know of any good free alternatives, but I recommend TunnelBear. It does the same thing as Hola and also has the benefits of a VPN. Its like $5 a month and works on PC and mobile.

TunnelBear is a VPN.
Relevant tweet from :
>Effective immediately, TunnelBear will be lending our network resources to Turkey #nocensorship #tunnelbear #turkey …
Daj jebote, pa lako je.
Instaliraj TunnelBear za Chrome (izaberi Region: United States), imaš 500MB besplatno prometa mjesečno. Idi se registriraj na Spotify i odi na i pusti 1 pjesmu. Ugasi TunnelBear. Neće ti trebati barem nedjelju dvije.
Zatim downloaduj spotify za Windows, Mac, Linux ili koji q ti treba i logiraj se. Radit će ti 5-20 dana. Poslije toga, opet TunnelBear upali i , pa ugasi i natrag.
Jedino što ima reklame.
I appreciate your skepticism most VPN's don't really respect there users privacy. The reason I recommend TunnelBear is because they recently had a public audit of there service by a respectable 3rd party audit company. see here
TunnelBear , free chrome extension. Set it to Canada and then you can watch American nationally broadcasted games. Turn it on before you login to MLS LIVE and then once you begin the game stream, turn it off.
I'm currently using TunnelBear from Australia through Canada to play right now. Never heard a bad thing about it, you get 500mb from just signing up, and then shortly after you'll get a prompt to tweet for an extra 1gb.
TunnelBear is a higher quality program and company. The whole process of setting up an account, installing it, and getting it running is a lot smoother. That being said they don't do torrents so I actually had to back out. Was nice though.
After the vote, Today I purchased my first VPN, I had been creating fake twitter accounts and tweeting TunnelBear for the extra bandwidth for quite awhile. After subbing here I decided to go with PIA as they offer layers and do not collect logging. (Or so they say)
Prior to me paying the fee, I did a speedtest (like any good researcher should) and I got 3.18mb/s and 3.21mb/s at my hotel room's shit internet. As soon as I paid the 1 year fee ($39), I got 3.12, 3.17, 3.05, and 3.12 again on my tests with the VPN active for different locations. 3.05 was Canada. I even used the VPN to watch a streamer earlier and had no lag or anything. $40? No difference in daily activities? Sign me TF up.
(I cancelled the purchase because I hate recurring charges, but I'll keep my year of VPN)
If anyone is looking for a last minute safe method (not giving your password to a website) to do this, I downloaded the TunnelBear chrome browser extension which has 500MB of data free, so way more than enough. I keep changing servers until I get one hosted in California (seemed to be about every third server) so that's what I am going to do this morning.
If you mean why I canceled the cancellation of my subscription, that is because I went back to the previous page to write down how this shit is unnecessary and then cancelled my subscription.
If you're wondering why I cancelled my subscription to TunnelBear, well the reason is stated in the video then.
The tweet in question.
We don't exactly know how this is going to affect people who installed the game through APK files or QooApp, so just to make sure, remember to bind your account.
That said, if installing the game through Google Play is the only requirement, that can be bypassed easily using a VPN like TunnelBear.
Just FYI, you could also buy the season pass on Nuuvem, for approximately $17. You'll simply need a free VPN like TunnelBear to add it to your cart but, after that, it activates everywhere (worked for me, and I'm in Europe).
I used a VPN called TunnelBear for the last summer Olympics. Someone else could probably tell you whether there is a better VPN, but TunnelBear is the one I tried and it worked just fine for me. You set the location you want to view from (Canada, of course, if you want to watch via CBC) and then go to the CBC website and enjoy Olympic coverage 100 times better than the shit we get in the US.
TunnelBear is legit. I know a guy that works there. They're not like one of those shady free VPNs, their free one only comes with 500MB of use per month which isn't much. Probably wouldn't get through a single 5 rounder in HD. $7/mo otherwise.
Luckily for fight pass all you need to do is log in from a different region then you can turn it off.
If he won't crawl into your phone, you can use VPN to hide your whole internet usage. It makes an encrypted tunnel so nobody can see what are you doing, I'm using TunnelBear, you've got 1,5 GB for free per month.
My other reply to you got removed, basically what I said was:
I followed a post I found on Reddit, Google 'reddit Mexico VPN origin's and it's the one about FIFA 16.
Follow the steps in that post but use TunnelBear instead.
You won't need to use TunnelBear, or any other VPN for that matter, to play the game. I hope devs know about it and have no plans of closing this loophole, since I have no intention of playing the game via my local distributor.
You're not wrong- the title was specifically vague to gain viewers and it very easily could've been about him and his wife. That's what I thought when I tapped it too.
It easily could've been titled 'TunnelBear/LMG' to avoid that, but who's going to click on that stream when they get the notification?
Just saw this news story:
I've only experience of one VPN service: TunnelBear, which works for me (allows me to access British TV from abroad).
I just hope HMG don't ban VPNs.
It's a regional block. I'm currently watching CBC right now and I'm in Virginia, USA. I have Mozilla Firefox with the SetupVPN add-on and have it set to a Canadian IP. You do NOT need to subscribe to an IP blocker like TunnelBear. I really love the CBC broadcast. The commentary is excellent because they focus on almost all of the sports, not just the ones that feature their canadian athletes (like NBC does).
Enpara kampanyası indirimine düşüş gelmiş (%50'den %20 indirime çekmişler.) ama yine de hiç yoktan iyidir.
Enpara ile iOS ya da Android marketten TunnelBear al, hem mobil hem PC'den kullanabilirsin.
Gezi olayları zamanında arkadaşa demiştim:
"İleride bu ülkede internet faturasına ek birde aylık VPN için ödeme yapacağız."
Şom ağzımı s*keyim.
TunnelBear for one, I’m pretty sure. I remember an intro to one of their videos saying that they couldn’t keep them as a sponsor because of some predatory market strategies or something along those lines.
Linus and Co are definitley thinking for their viewers and the consumer first. An incrredinoy respectable channel/group if you ask me.
explains our logging policies, which are, for the most part, pretty non existent.
We don't give out performance stats for our servers though, so I can't help you there. However, I downloaded the preload of Fallout 4 just this morning with TunnelBear on. I was connected to our USA Servers, and I'm in Canada (Toronto specifically) on a 100mbit/10mbit line. I was downloading at an average rate of 2 mb/s
Including podcasts, you'll also see:
Despite the variety, I'm still sick of hearing the same advertisements over and over.
Seriously considering writing some kind of script to detect & skip sponsors.
Exactly why MLS Live is such a ripoff imo. The games you want to watch most (your team) are usually blacked out. Because you have already purchased MLS Live, I would look into a VPN service like TunnelBear. Illegal streams are usually pretty low quality, so you didn't completely waste your money.
Speaking of privacy, TunnelBear is our sponsor for today's episode. It let's you browse securely by creating a secure "tunnel". It also has a free plan! Go to to get 20% off.
$70 base price in Australia. If you were to happen to use a US proxy (or proxy app like Hola or TunnelBear) to add the item to your cart and check out, then disable the proxy before entering your PayPal login info, I wonder what the results might be?
^(Just to clarify for anyone unfamiliar with the term, It's not an actual tax, just region-specific pricing.)
Absolutely. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DOWNLOAD HOLA. It is malicious and will give your IP address to someone else.
TunnelBear works pretty well. It gives you 300MB free, which is more than enough to check your scores.
Quality is 100%. Download TunnelBear, it’s free. Connect to Singapore when you log in. As soon as you’re logged in, you can turn off the VPN (and not burn through your data limit). Then you can access whatever games you want (live and OnDemand). So not just Pro14, but Premiership, super rugby, all test matches and mitre10! Let me know if you need any help setting it up, I’m a huge advocate for it and highly recommend it
It's funny that people even trusted TunnelBear before it was taken over by McAfee. A vast majority of VPN's claim that they don't log, and yet the truth is more often they do. PIA (Private Internet Access) is one of the few VPN's that has actually had it's no-logging policy tested in court twice now - both cases failed to retrieve any information from PIA as simply non-existed, one was related to a bomb threat and the other hacking emails related to Embarcadero Media again PIA could turn nothing over. Too many people, just simply trust what a VPN provider says without being provided any evidence to back it up - at least with PIA, you know through court cases that its been backed up and that the FBI have failed twice to retrieve information from PIA.
I have, and got rid of it for that reason. It never seemed to work right anyway.
I used TunnelBear in 2012 and it worked great. It was US/UK only back then, but they've since added Canada, Germany, Japan, Australia, and France. I can't speak to how well the new ones work. You can use 500MB free every month, or pay $5 for unlimited usage, which is probably the way to go if you're planning to stream video.
ProtonMail is free anyways.
Instead of Vipre there is Avast, Malwarebytes, Avira
KeePass, LastPass, and Dashlane both have free versions of password managers that are great.
VPNs aren’t usually free, but TunnelBear will give you 500MB of free data. You should just pay for a good VPN like ExpressVPN or NordVPN if you’re going to use a VPN.
In terms of free “private” browsing I guess you can use Tor and DuckDuckGo.
I live in the Midwest USA and I did this when Cats & Dogs came out. I downloaded a VPN service called TunnelBear and used their free trial so it looked like I was in New Zealand. Worked like a charm!
Living in Canada, I run into the same issues. My solution is to use TunnelBear (has chrome extension).
TunnelBear might be a good VPN but I will never install it strictly because of the guilt-tripping bullshit it throws at you during the uninstall. Fuck that noise in its entirety.
I'll stick with PIA. No-BS install, no-BS uninstall.
Yes. I've been using BlockBear (same company as VPN app TunnelBear) and it blocks ads when you're using Safari on an iPhone 5s or newer. A note on their site says "Also, Apple has limited the blocker apps to devices with 64-bit processors. We suppose this is to ensure browsing stays speedy."
~~I think the issue now is finding a Brazilian VPN that is secure. Nuuvem appears to have blocked TunnelBear's IP's from accessing the Brazilian part of the website; it just redirects you to the US version.~~
edit: NEVERMIND! TunnelBear still works. If it's not working for you (you're getting the US site), try disconnecting and reconnecting TunnelBear.
Here's a spreadsheet with BRL prices converted to USD:
I wouldn’t use a free VPN if I were you, a lot of free android VPNs are malware. You’d be better off getting a paid one instead. After all you are investing in your own security. Something like NordVPN or TunnelBear should do the trick, these are known to offer strong encryption.
Păi poți ușor cu TunnelBear. Trebuie cam o dată la 2 săpt să faci un login cu IP de SUA (sau orice țară cu Spotify). După login poți opri TunnelBear și 2 săptămâni nu te mai întreabă de sănătate.
Sau îți iei pro și poți asculta oriunde în lume. Atâta că trebuie contul făcut cu card bancar din țara default pe care o alegi (US, UK, etc). Sunt aplicații și pentru asta
Paid one >free ones. Of course, depends what you will be using it for, if for streaming Netflix and privacy, always use a paid one, free ones are no good. I recently switched from TunnelBear to Nord, can't complain and it works with Netflix too
It’s free while in beta, but TunnelBear will require a fee after launch. I will happily pay for it though once my LastPass sub is up, because I appreciate TunnelBear’s level of transparency. My only concern for them going forward is their merger with McAfee.
I'm pissed at NBC because their android app is complete shit and doesn't work on a lot of phones and tablets. It's the only app I've ever downloaded that won't even load on my phone. I'm using a VPN to watch the Olympics from BBC for free on my computer. I watch it at 720p very smoothly but with the NBC site even the lowest quality streams were choppy and unwatchable. It's like they are stuck in the 80s and only want people to watch the swimming and gymnastics competitions 5 hours after they were live so they can broadcast it at primetime.
Edit: Clarification: The VPN I'm using isn't free. TunnelBear. BBC is free for all streaming Olympic events.
Once you're doing anything that takes a large amount of data, you should buy a paid service.
As the saying goes, "if you're not paying, you're the product". Running a true VPN costs money.
TunnelBear gives you a limited amount of data because they want you to upgrade to a paid plan. The free quota is a loss-leader.
Hola can (theoretically) give you all the data you want because every person who uses Hola is being used as a VPN endpoint for another Hola user or whomever is paying Hola to use the connections of Hola users.
> If you are looking for complete anonymity, look elsewhere.
Do NOT use TunnelBear
They are not "Zero log" or private or whatever marketing term they are using that day and they are very sneaky about how they phrase the data they don't collect.
Not mentioning the popular ones:
Narwhal for Reddit
TunnelBear for VPN (they give 500mb free monthly)
Klok for World Clocks
Scannable for scanning documents (by Evernote, comes in handy)
Life360 (for my family to track me wherever I go, duh)
My wife sorta does the same thing, when she hears me watching a LTT video she comes in and says "Hey thats pretty awesome, but you know what else is even more awesome TunnelBear."
So use a VPN that sets you up in Canada, I would recommend TunnelBear. Next you would just plug an HDMI out from your Laptop into your TV. If your TV/Laptop doesn't have an HDMI some adapters may be necessary.
