What is Auto-Connect on Insecure WiFi?
On the move? TunnelBear has your back! These days, wifi can be found pretty much anywhere. 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.
