CyberGhost and TunnelBear may be competing in the same industry, but does that make them equal opponents?
The honest answer is there’s an ocean of difference between these two VPNs — literally and figuratively. Canada-based TunnelBear is some distance away from CyberGhost’s headquarters in Romania, but there’s more to it than just the location.
Privacy is important, and unfortunately TunnelBear operates in a Five Eyes country. Conversely, CyberGhost and its users don’t have to worry about invasive surveillance or unfavorable data retention laws.
Talking about features, CyberGhost offers a true top-shelf service with over 6,200 servers in 90 countries and plenty of features for extra security and ease of use. TunnelBear is much tamer with just 20 server locations, although it offers a kill switch, called “Vigilant Mode”. Overall, its cute interface is simple and straightforward, but nothing special.
CyberGhost, on the other hand, shows ingenuity in its design. Thanks to various preconfigured profiles, it allows easy protection and accessibility in a matter of seconds. It’s also a reliable VPN for bypassing Netflix blocks or censorship in China — two important advantages TunnelBear struggles with.
Lastly, CyberGhost has a 45-day money-back guarantee, which is a huge bonus when compared to TunnelBear’s no-refund policy.
