The popular virtual private network (VPN) provider TunnelBear wants to earn your trust. The company just announced what it says is the first third-party public security audit in the consumer VPN industry. In short, a security company looked at TunnelBear’s servers, apps, and infrastructure to see if everything was up to snuff.
The VPN provider hired Germany-based penetration testing company Cure53. The security company was given full access to TunnelBear’s systems and code for 30 days in late 2016 and another eight in early 2017. The end result was two audits, which TunnelBear and Cure53 published Tuesday.
