How to encrypt the connection: Are you studying to become a real computer ninja and move in the shadows also on the Internet? Then you should definitely start using a VPN service . VPN services (acronym for Virtual Private Network) are systems through which you can encrypt your Internet connection using a foreign IP and obscuring your movements on the Web. How do you say? Business that concerns only geek experts? Evidently you have never tried TunnelBear .

TunnelBear is a free VPN service (up to 500MB of traffic per month) that offers an American or UK IP address and encrypts the 128-bit connection (256 bits if you switch to the paid plan) without the user having to configure anything or do who knows what. Trust me, it’s one of the easiest programs I’ve ever used in my life. If you don’t believe it, find out with me how to encrypt the connection using it and you will have to 100% think again  .

If you are interested in finding out how to encrypt the connection , the first step you need to take is to connect to the TunnelBear website and click on the PC item to download the program to your computer.

Download is complete open, double clicking on it, the file you just downloaded ( TunnelBear.exe ) and, in the window that opens, click first on Yes (to authorize installation on Windows 7 and Vista) and then on Next , I Agree , Install and Continue to end the installation process and start TunnelBear .

In the window that opens, put the check mark next to the item I don’t have a TunnelBear account and click on the Next button to start the creation of your free account on TunnelBear. Then fill out the form that is proposed to you, typing your e-mail address, username and password you want to use to access the service, and click first on Next and then OK to install the drivers necessary for the program to work.

If a Windows warning message appears, click on the Install driver software button     to authorize the installation of the TunnelBear drivers on the system and click on Finish to end the initial service configuration process. At the end of the procedure, you will also need to connect to your e-mail box and click on the confirmation link in the message received by TunnelBear to validate your account.

Finally here we are! Once you’ve confirmed your account, you’re ready to encrypt your connection and run around the web like a ninja. Then log in to TunnelBear using the access data chosen during registration and, after logging in, choose if you want an American or British IP by moving the right stick to US or UK and start the encryption of the connection by moving the left stick on ON .

At this point, wait for the TunnelBear main window to  turn blue and you can start surfing the net anonymously using any browser. Remember, however, not to exceed 500MB of monthly traffic and to turn off the program by putting the lever back to OFF when you have finished your Internet ninja experiments!
