Why .torrents files don't download when using VPN service TunnelBear to connect to the internet?


If you are using FrostWire with TunnelBear (on Desktop or Android) and you've noticed your .torrent files are not downloading when TunnelBear is on, the only solution to fix this issue is to switch VPN services.

TunnelBear will not work with any BitTorrent client, and that includes FrostWire. The company plainly states on their help site that TunnelBear does not work with .torrents. 

FrostWire works fine with most VPN services. We recommend ExpressVPN. Read more here.

If you just want to switch the services and want to use ExpressVPN, get it here - they have a 30 day money back guarantee, so you will be able to try it out.
