TunnelBear VPN

Sometimes you may need to route your internet traffic through an internationally location like the US or UK. TunnelBear is a great, free Windows and Mac VPN app that is so easy to install and setup that your mum could do it. While it free there are limitations. Bandwidth transfers per month is set at just 500MB, but with a tweet promoting the app, it’s increased to 1.5GB.

Depending on your need for a VPN solution, this may or may not be adequate. If not, you may want to consider paying for additional bandwidth. At $4.99 per month for unlimited, it’s a great deal. There is even a TunnelBear beta for iPads and iPhone looking for a VPN connection, but you will need a paid subscription for that.

However you choose to use this is up to you, all I know is that it’s the most simple VPN solution to date. There’s no router configuration, it just works. Naturally when you run a VPN at the device level, you’ll need to set it up and enable it per device. This will also allow you to manage your bandwidth limit better.
