TunnelBear, the VPN application that can “tunnel” you around online censorship and blocked sites, is now available as a lightweight extension for Google’s Chrome web browser.

Get TunnelBear for Chrome and it will tunnel your browser data, thus allowing you to surf the web privately, experience the internet as if you were in another country, and block online trackers.

You can get the TunnelBear extension for free from Google’s Chrome Web Store.

Please note that at the time of writing this, the app is tagged as a Beta. Betas, I have to remind you, can be buggy and may not work properly at times.

After you install the extension, you will be asked to sign up for a TunnelBear account. You’ll have to provide your first name, a valid email address, and pick a password for your account. If you already have a TunnelBear account, you can skip this step and log in to “wake up the bear in your browser.”



Once you’re signed into your account, TunnelBear will invite you to “start your bear-owsing.” A bear claw will show up and point to the TunnelBear icon that sits in the upper right hand corner on Chrome’s interface. You can use this icon to connect to whatever VPN server you want.



The TunnelBear Team calls VPN servers tunnels and says that you can tunnel to multiple locations around the world. By connecting to a TunnelBear VPN server you can make it seem like you’re from the US, from the UK, from France, and so on. Tunnels to 13 locations around the world are offered right now; tunnels to new locations are frequently added.

While you’re connected to a VPN server, your internet connection is encrypted and your real IP is hidden away. This means that you can privately surf the web, access websites that are blocked in your region, and block online trackers.



As I mentioned above, you’ll have to sign up for a TunnelBear account to get started with this VPN application. Three types of accounts are available: Little, Giant, and Grizzly.

TunnelBear Little is free. You get 500MB of data per month and an extra 1GB per month if you promote TunnelBear on Twitter.



This article focused on the TunnelBear extension for Google Chrome. Before it ends, I have to remind you that TunnelBear is also available for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android.

TunnelBear for Windows is available right here on FindMySoft.
TunnelBear for Mac is available right here on
FindMySoft as well.

If you want to use TunnelBear on your iPhone or Android, you can get the TunnelBear app from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Additional information about TunnelBear is available on its official website.
