TunnelBear is an application that became very popular during times when WhatsApp was blocked in Brazil, as it is used to change the VPN of your smartphone.

You can use TunnelBear to use apps that aren't available in our country, to hide your IP address from the websites you visit, or to encrypt your information while connected to a Wi-Fi network. Click here to download it.
