Default VPN newbie with questions

Is it normal for a VPN (like TunnelBear) to ask you for the password to your device (computer/tablet, etc) every time you access their VPN service?

I can understand perfectly well they need to ask for the password to the VPN account, but my DEVICE? What the heck?

Does anyone here have any experience with TunnelBear?

If not, what are some good free VPNs out there?

(Edited to add: this is on an iPad, and not one of the devices that I posted my troubles about a couple of weeks ago.

I thought that TunnelBear asking for my iPad's password was over the top. TunnelBear supposedly has a good rep, and I suspect that it wasn't really THEM asking for my device's password, but more likely the browser was hijacked on that device.

What do you think?
