Tunnelbear-one of our favorite VPN (Virtual Private Network) services for accessing blocked overseas content has just added two new security features – Privacy Protection and ‘Always On’ security. For the starters – Tunnelbear lets you access regional-specific services such as – Spotify, Netflix and BBC iPlayer from any corner of the world.
With the ‘Privacy Protection’ option in Tunnelbear, your privacy is maintained as it helps in protecting and preventing others from following your online activities. At the same time, it also prevents you from getting around restricted locations while streaming media.
At every step – Tunnelbear finds out browsing pages that it feels can pose threats to you and then puts you in complete control by disconnecting the page from the server. It then lets you track cookies, scripts and other such threats on that particular site.
At the same time, it also lets you view the behind-the-scene activities on every site! This enables you to disable trackers and buttons or widgets that may look tricky to you. You can also block or allow third-party applications as per your preference.
Always On security tool
With the ‘Always On’ security feature incorporated, Tunnelbear scans all your browser activities. It works even at the time when your VPN connection is down. It is more like a mini part of Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) where your entire traffic is sent, so that all further activities are properly monitored. In this manner, Tunnelbear keeps your network protected from the prying eyes of unauthenticated users.
Retooled apps for greater speed and performance
In addition to these two new security features, Tunnelbear also redesigned its desktop apps, so that it is easier for it to tighten its security while enhancing the speed for a better and uninterrupted performance.
So, what are you waiting for? Go explore the new Tunnelbear and experience the way its latest security tools are performing.
