TunnelBear and Windscribe have similar core services, but very different additional capabilities. For instance, while TunnelBear allows a maximum of five simultaneous connections, Windscribe users can connect an unlimited number of devices, depending on their subscription plan. Windscribe also has servers present in 55 countries, whereas TunnelBear has a network spanning about 20 countries. In terms of refunds, only Windscribe offers a money-back guarantee, and it only lasts three days.
Although TunnelBear and Windscribe are different in size, they share a lot of similarities in their offerings. Each VPN is available in both free and premium versions, and both are currently reliable for unblocking Netflix-USA. Dedicated apps for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android platforms can also be found with either of these providers. Interestingly, both VPNs are based in Canada (a Five-Eyes country), but nevertheless take security very seriously, with features like strong 256-bit encryption and a kill switch in all their apps.
