It’s frustrating when a web site denies you access because you’re outside of the country the site services (UK readers experience this all the time when accessing US sites). TunnelBear’s dead simple VPN service can help.
Installing TunnelBear is a snap. You download the app (available for Windows or Mac), install it, sign up for a free account, and you can instantly begin tunneling your traffic to circumvent location-based restrictions. The free service offers 128-bit encryption and 500MB of traffic a month. That’s not a whole lot of bandwidth but it let’s you get a taste for the service and if you only need to access a site or two you’ll be fine. The premium service is $4.99 a month and comes with 256-bit encryption and unlimited bandwidth.
Hit up the link below to grab a copy of the installer and take TunnelBear for a spin.
