Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
TunnelBear, the company making privacy and open Internet accessible to everyone, is re-launching its signature PC & Mac applications with a focus on always-on consumer privacy. As consumers become more concerned with Internet privacy, the new versions of TunnelBear’s PC & Mac have been upgraded to reflect changing user habits.
TunnelBear for PC & Mac now connects to the network 35 percent faster, automatically connects on machine startup and recovers faster from computer sleep. These new features are designed to ensure TunnelBear blends seamlessly into the browsing experience for always on privacy without having to remember to manually turn TunnelBear on. Additionally, “Vigilant Mode” prevents privacy leaks when a connection is disrupted by blocking any unsecured data while TunnelBear reconnects (PC only, OSX coming soon). With this new version of TunnelBear for PC & Mac, customer privacy will never go into hibernation.
“It’s become clear that our users want TunnelBear on 24/7 and that’s what this product update is all about. We’ve reengineered our applications from the ground-up to connect faster, to recover from disruptions smoother and make always private the new norm,” said Daniel Kaldor, CTO and Cofounder at TunnelBear.
The new PC & Mac apps have the same simplicity that TunnelBear’s one million customers have grown to love. These new features are just as easy to use as the previous versions and don’t require any complicated setup or configuration.
“Over the last year, our one million-plus users have changed the way they use our service, particularly with the recent NSA leaks and growing concerns about online privacy,” said Ryan Dochuk, CEO and Cofounder at TunnelBear. “With this new version of PC & Mac we’re laying the foundation for a series of important consumer privacy features that will further alleviate these concerns.”
With three tiers of pricing, TunnelBear customers can find a plan that is “just right” for them. TunnelBear for PC & Mac is free with limited data, unlimited data versions of TunnelBear are $4.99 per month (Giant) or $49.99 for a year (Grizzly).
