Driven by concerns around Internet privacy spurred by the NSA
cyberspying revelations that leaked out this summer, Tunnelbear has
introduced ‘vigilant mode.’ When turned on, this blocks all unsecured
data from being transmitted while a computer is not connected to
Tunnelbear. So, if your connection to the service is broken, for even
just a minute, it will keep unsecured items offline until it
reconnects.

Vigilant mode is initially enabled on the PC app only — the company
says it is “coming soon” to OSX — but both PC and Mac users will enjoy
a set of performance tweaks.
