"A decent VPN service with quite a few locations"

Comments: It's a good VPN, I recommend using it for just some private browsing.

Pros: The UI is nice, the connection is stable with multiple options. It has a kill switch which is very important for VPN services.

Cons: It comes with a cost which makes it hard to use for freelancing when you are a student.

"Easy to use"

Pros: TunnelBear is easy to set up and use. If you are worried about online security, using a VPN like TunnelBear is ideal. The plan is relatively cheap or you can use the free version which will give you 500 MB per month.

Cons: The only con while using TunnelBear was that some of my software that requires internet connection was either slow or unresponsive. It's a known issue that Netflix will not work while using most VPNs.

"A Free VPN That's Easy To Use And Just Works"

Comments: I use TunnelBear for access to sites that are IP blocked in my home country - eg, some US websites are not GDPR compliant and block European visitors. TunnelBear gets round that problem. Installation and use is simple and the connection can be quickly switched on and off to conserve data. If accessing a proxy was more mission-critical for my business then I may look at alternatives but for my uses, TunnelBear is a friendly and easy to use service.

Pros: Such an easy product to use - just select the country you want to tunnel to (there are 22 at the moment), and TunnelBear does the rest. It's free to use for up to 500MB per month, but if you tweet about it, you gain an extra 1GB per month. Connection speeds were variable - I find European speeds can be slow - maybe a few MB/s, but itr seems to depend on the time of day.

Cons: The main drawback is the amount of data you obtain for free: 1.5GB won't go far if you use this every day. That said, for occasional use that doesn't require very high speeds, it's perfect. If you want to gain access to unlimited data you'll be paying $9.99 a month or $4.99 if you pay for a year in one go.

"A VPN that used to be great but went downfall."

Pros: We have been using this VPN for quite some time and It worked great with a good balance between features and monthly cost, even the UI was fun to watch.

Cons: After the acquisition from McAfee, we felt the security was compromised as all the traffic wasn't encrypted and secured but it actually may have been stored. As the company that used to be in Toronto now has to comply to US security and privacy requirements means no information is really private in their servers.

"User Friendly"

Comments: Great overall experience but I cannot continue using for privacy concerns.

Pros: I admit I like the cute bear and fun graphics of him digging a hole. I like that the VPN connection was easy to setup and did not slow down my speed.

Cons: I would have upgraded to the pay version if you did not keep logs on my web surfing. However, that is not the case so I found another product that does not log.
