TunnelBear is a great VPN service that offers a lot of really good features. Like NordVPN, it has a kill switch feature (VigilantBear) that automatically blocks all internet traffic when you disconnect from the VPN.
Another important feature in the TunnelBear is “GhostBear”, which is an anti-censorship and restriction mechanism that works to make your encrypted VPN data appear like regular network traffic. This is very useful when you are on a network that limits VPN traffic! Also please note that the TunnelBear will not allow you to enable GhostBear if your computer is running a custom proxy.
TunnelBear also doesn’t collect any of what you browse while connected to the service. But they collect some generic information like the version of your operating system and the TunnelBear app, the number of active sessions you use per month (but not the time spent on the VPN), your total data usage every month, and etc.
They are really a great service, you should check them out.
