I'm going to be doing some traveling and want to be able to occasionally check my credit card or bank records on WIFI. So, I signed up for a free VPN through Tunnel Bear and they gave me 500mbs. First, is it safe to do this via the free VPN? I read that's the way to do it because Wifi alone is not safe for this. Second, I know 500mb is not much but I don't know what that means. I only intend to do a little bit of checking; not going to download stuff. How long will 500mb last or do I need to upgrade before I go? Thanks for any help.
I think safe is a pretty relative term these days with respect to doing anything online, but tunnelbear should be pretty secure. I would think that amount of data should be plenty, but you might want to turn it off when you're doing other surfing, just in case. If you limit it to just when you're checking those specific sites you want private, I can't imagine you'd hit your limit.
35$ a year
5 simultaneous connections at one time.
high speed....i would just check them out.
is unlimited so thats a plus.
Itís not great speed performance-wise, but itís safe to use. 500 might be enough if you're diligent about shutting it off after your done with your checking and whatnot. If you forget, you could burn through it fast.
if you use a VPN and will ask you your security question(s) ... so make sure you know the answers before you leave
