TunnelBear is a VPN provider that utilizes OpenVPN protocol.

In order to use this tutorial, one must have Giant or Grizzly subscription.

Note: There is an easier method to use TunnelBear service for Gnome users.

Download TunnelBear OpenVPN config files.

Unzip the folder, and copy all the files to

Do not forget to change the permission

$ sudo chmod 600 /etc/openvpn/*

Pick the corresponding .ovpn that will be used (TunnelBear Japan is used as an example)

Rename the extension & remove the space

$ mv /etc/openvpn/TunnelBear\ Japan.ovpn /etc/openvpn/TunnelBearJapan.conf

Edit the .conf file

keepalive 10 30
