What is Auto-Connect on Insecure WiFi?
These days, WiFi can be found in many public places. When connecting to an insecure network (any network that isn't password protected - public networks like coffee shops, libraries, restaurants, etc.), it’s important to make sure you’re protected. You never know who else might be on the network trying to intercept or snoop on your private activity.
The Auto-connect on Insecure WiFi feature is currently only available on Android devices running Android 8 or older. When Auto-connect on Insecure WiFi is selected, TunnelBear will detect that you’re connecting to an open WiFi network and your Bear will automatically start digging a secure tunnel.
