TunnelBear 2.4.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

With the release of version 2.4.2 of its eponymous VPN app for the Mac, TunnelBear [1] fixes a problem with custom DNS settings not being restored after TunnelBear disconnects, increases connection reliability on very slow or lossy networks, and repairs a number of connection issues. (For more on the basics of using TunnelBear, which offers 500 MB per month of free VPN routing, see “FunBITS: How to Watch the 2014 World Cup Online [2],” 13 June 2014.) Additionally, TunnelBear VPN for iOS [3] has been updated to version 2.0 with a new user interface for selecting the VPN host country your data will be tunneled into, plus the capability to turn TunnelBear on and off without leaving the app. Previously, you had to visit Settings to turn VPN routing on and off. (Free, 23.8 MB, release notes [4], 10.6.8+)
