TunnelBear, a VPN service, has seen twelve times the amount of traffic coming from Zimbabwe. This is because Zimbabweans fear that there may be some sort of internet shutdown tomorrow. In light of this TunnelBear tweeted this:
That’s right they are giving Zimbabweans 10 GB of data to use on their VPN service. This 10 GB is the total amount of data you can use while the VPN is activated.
You’ll still need to have:
External hard drives 500gig 1TB
Hp 250 G7
Dell Latitude Laptop
Dell Inspiron 3450 Core i3 4th Gen
- Mobile data bundle/credit,
- Or an active and credited home or work internet connection.
This data only allows you to access 10 GB of data through their servers. If there is no shutdown then you can use it to watch shows and movies on your streaming service of choice that may be geo-locked.
App Store and Google Play Store Links:
Note: If there is a total internet shutdown then VPNs won’t be of any use, they only work if specific URLs like social media sites are blocked.

Wait, so it(the 10gig) doesn’t work if you don’t have actuall data(mobile)?
Yup, you will still need data in your phone
They only gave me 500mb. I have to buy more
You can get 1 more GB by tweeting at them, just type your Twitter @ in the app
Yeah, VPNs are like a middle man, they secure and encrypt your connection, but you have to have an active internet connection to use a VPN to begin with. So when using a VPN you are passing your connection through their servers, and those servers are outside the areas where websites are being blocked.
Most free VPNs work but may have a data limit or are unlimited but sometimes the connection can be spotty. They often have paid packages that allow you to pass more data through their servers. In this case if you already have an internet connection the amount of data you can use through TunnelBear will be 10 GB.
So if I get access to 10 gig then leave WiFi place to my home where I have no mobile data or internet connection, will I be able to continue browsing??
no you cannot because the 10gig is just for the amount of data they will allow you through their servers. You still need to have internet connection or mobile data
how do i connet to their serves.
How do I connect tunnel bear so I can access the Internet?
I hear that you are helping people with 10GB
