With its near-lagless technology Tunnello provides a simple, secure and very fast VPN service for almost all internet users.

Tunnello can also bypass censorship, unblock videos and TV channels while making the internet connection secure. So, we were disappointed to discover it can’t unblock Netflix US. 

With all the claims of being the ‘next generation Google Chrome Extension’ Tunnello also is ultra-fast and secure. It is a perfect amalgamation of a super-fast VPN and an ultra-secure proxy server.

John, Hugo and Clem’s idea, ‘Tunnello’ was born in a café in Chiang Mai in early 2016.

After that, they started developing Tunnello in Koh Lanta, Paris, Las Palmas De Gran Canaria, Indonesia, and Hong Kong as John, Hugo and Clem traveled for work all around the world.

After a few months, their ‘dream’ finally made it to its ‘soft release’ as Tunnello-beta in March 2016.

Tunnello currently offers their VPN services in 14 countries. If you live in France, UK, Italy, Russia Netherlands, USA, Germany, Switzerland, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Spain or Canada you can enjoy the benefits. They plan to launch their services in other countries soon.

Tunnello benefits

Tunnello uses a new technology that is ten times faster than the VPN protocol with the similar security level.

Tunnello is 100% unlimited and offers faster and secure streaming and browsing.

As far as the compatibility is concerned, Tunnello, only works on the Google Chrome Browser. You can install it via ‘Chrome Web Store’ by downloading their extension. They hope to release Tunnello services for other devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac and Windows devices soon.

Tunnello uses 128-bit AES encryption over an RSA-4096 bit certificate for the key exchange that makes the traffic pretty much secure. This not only keeps your data secured but also prevent others from spying on you.

Unfortunately, Tunnello can’t unblock Netflix. If you’re looking for a VPN for streaming, take a look at the best VPNs for Netflix.

You can try Tunnello for free before you plan to buy. The trial version gives you 200 MB of free data daily for six months. After the trial period ends, you are asked to purchase any of the two plans i.e. Mission to Mars or Mission to the Moon.

While effective, Tunnello is tiny when to the best VPN providers and just can’t compete for value and service. Before spending any money, make sure you compare with better alternatives.

The Bottom Line

Tunnello is an ultra-fast way to browse and watch videos on the internet securely. The setup is easy, as the Chrome Extension installation is hassle-free. While testing Tunnello sometimes, we had some issues with the US servers but other than that everything worked blazingly fast. It is also worth mentioning that Tunnello stores 30-days of browsing data on their servers, might not matter to some but to other can make a big difference.
