Information Security Series - Tunnel Bear VPN




Hi webious readers,

I am going to write a number of posts regarding Information security and VPN and here is the first article in this series.

You might be aware that the Indian government has started to block huge number of web sites these days and we are very annoyed of these bans over the internet. One way to access the open internet without any restrictions is using a VPN service.

Today I am going to introduce you to a VPN service provided by "Tunnel Bear". VPN is a technology which allows our data to pass through a secure connection.

virtual private network, also known as a VPN, is a private network that extends across a public network or internet. It enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network.
VPN encrypts and passes data to the private network. This provides an additional security to your data.

 Tunnel Bear VPN :

First of all you need to create an account on https://www.tunnelbear.com After which the download of VPN client will start automatically.



Install the client to your preferred location. Sign in to the client using your credentials.



After then you'll see the installed client, it has a creative and nice user interface :P  Click the ON switch to connect to closest tunnel and you can even select the country you want to route your traffic through. It may take some time though while connecting as it has to establish a secure and encrypted connection on both ends.

Also one thing you need to keep in mind is that if you have installed any antivirus then you need to provide permissions to Tunnel Bear VPN client to work properly.

In the free version you'll get 500 MB free data tunneling and there is an offer to get additional 1 GB data, you just need to tweet about tunnel bear from your twitter account.

So guys, this is all about Tunnel Bear VPN. I will do more research and find more such great VPN clients available and will write reviews about those in upcoming posts.

Lets keep the information security on first priority while accessing the Internet.
Thank you guys for reading this post, I hope you liked the article, let me know through the comments. More posts are coming in this series so stay tuned. :)
