Canadian VPN provider TunnelBear has updated its Windows and Mac clients to version 3.0.
The Windows release features a simplified, stripped-back interface and connects and reconnects up to 60% faster than before.
There’s a new option to mark networks as “Trusted”. TunnelBear then connects to trusted networks rather than others, whenever there’s a choice.
The client also alerts you to vulnerabilities on insecure networks – no admin passwords, WEP encryption – to help you make better choices.
An improved “Vigilant” mode does a better job of preventing unsecured data while you’re connecting, or if your VPN connection drops.
This all sounds good to us, although if you just need the basics, TunnelBear’s Chrome extension gives you private browsing and runs on all your devices.
TunnelBear 3.0 runs on Windows 7 and later and Mac.
