Tell me how to change the IP address on Android?
There are several ways to change your IP on Android. In today’s article, I will tell you about one of them. It’s about the application TunnelBear, which allows you to hide your IP using VPN technology.
TunnelBear VPN App
TunnelBear is considered one of the best in such programs. This application came to smartphones from the "desktop" operating systems. It is quite simple to configure and easy to use.
The TunnelBear app allows you to unlock and access any sites, from anywhere. In addition, using the TunnelBear VPN, you can hide your IP from your sites and your real location.
The speed when using TunnelBear VPN in my opinion is very acceptable. I measured speed using the Speed Test app. And I got such indicators:
- Ping. 230ms
- Download. 2.3 Mbps
- Upload.3.15 Mbps
At this speed, even Youtube should not slow down.
How to change IP address on Android
First you need to download TunnelBear VPN. You can download the TunnelBear app for free at this direct link.
Once you have downloaded and installed the TunnelBear application, run it. After starting, you will see a window in which you will be prompted to log in. In our case, since we are a new user, you must register to log in. To do this, click on the "Create Account" button
Launching the TunnelBear Application
In the window that appears, fill in the necessary data: name, mail, password and click on the "Register" button.
Register at TunnelBear
After that, the application will return you to the previous authorization screen, where you need to enter the data that you used during registration. After entering the necessary data, click the "Login" button
Upon entering the application you will see the main program window (green), in which to change the IP address you will need to switch the slider located at the top in the middle.
Also at the bottom of this window you can see information about traffic consumption. Initially at your disposal 500mb per month. In principle, if you use the application in a smart way, then this free traffic is enough and should be enough.
Now go to the menu by clicking on the button in the upper left corner.
In the menu you can see several items. Let’s look at each item individually.
Click on the item “Free traffic”. By tweeting this application, you can get an additional 1GB of traffic for free.
In the "Options" menu, the user can configure the application and select the operation modes.
TunnelBear VPN Settings
IP choices are weird. In my case, I will select the Swiss IP address.
A program may request additional access to traffic. Click on "OK" and confirm access. I know the warning looks a little awesome, but don’t be afraid, it is reliable software.
The blue circle at the top indicates that the application has successfully connected and the IP has been successfully changed.

After that, we go to some online IP verification service such as 2ip and check. As you can see the IP address and other data have changed.
New IP Address
The application has no serious flaws. The only drawback is the allowed free traffic. It is not enough, but not much. Now, if there was 1GB, it would be more spacious. In addition, I personally do not have enough settings, in my opinion there are few of them in the program.
TunnelBear is pretty easy to use. The only thing that is required of the user is to click on the VPN enable slider and select the desired country from the list of countries, and there are more of them than in other similar applications, such as Zenmate, for example.
