A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secured network that allows users to share data remotely through public networks, all the while hiding sensitive information, such as your IP address and location, from websites, hackers, and advertisers. Tunnel Bear is one of the most attractive and user friendly VPNs on the market. Download takes less than a minute. From there, a honey pot appears on your computer's toolbar. Clicking the toggle switch turns the service on and off. As long as the switch is turned "on," the service is working to keep your connection private. For added benefit, you can also choose to access the Internet from servers in countries around the world. Most users will be satisfied with the free plan, but those who need more data may pay for the more advanced plans.
