In some countries, specific websites are blocked that makes it difficult to access streaming media websites, such as Netflix and Pandora. This blackout policy makes it impossible for weary travelers to relax by watching streaming media or listen to their favorite-streamed music. To get around this challenge, TunnelBear has been created. The software application allows users to access websites through a VPN client safely and securely.

Bandwidth is definitely not cheap, but TunnelBear allows users 500 MB if they utilize the free version of the software. After that, users must pay a nominal charge for the bandwidth that they use. Rates are as low as $4.99 a month, which gives users access to an unlimited amount of bandwidth. Periodically, TunnelBear will run promotions that discount the price of the software. They have given a free month to users who promote the software on Twitter, but if a person is serious about using the service, paying a small fee is probably worth it.

TunnelBear has a beautiful interface that is easy and intuitive to navigate. For the nominal fee paid each month or yearly, users may find that the software fits their needs. For people who do not want to spend any money on a VPN client, there are competitors on the Internet that offer unlimited bandwidth for free.

The software is available as a free download so individuals will not lose anything by giving the application a chance. If a person does not mind paying a small fee to use the services that TunnelBear offers, it makes sense to give TunnelBear a trial run.
