TunnelBear is a virtual private network (or VPN for short).
When you turn it on, all your device’s incoming and outgoing data gets routed through a secure server which protects it with Grizzly-grade encryption.
That means when an internet service provider, network owner, or even hacker tries to snoop on your browsing activity, all they’ll see is garbled, unreadable junk.
This process also changes your IP address (it’s kind of like your internet phone number) to stop anyone online from seeing your real physical location or tying your activity back to you directly.
