SSH Tunnel

This app helps you surf the web privately and securely, for instance, to encrypt your traffic from local eavesdroppers at Wi-Fi hotspots or to bypass filters and geographic restrictions. It's a SSH client that can proxy the Internet connections for the entire Android system or individual apps through a SSH server. Its DNS Proxy feature can also solve the DNS pollution problem in places such as China by using the pre-defined HOSTS information from the developer's site to counteract any DNS tampering by the authorities or ISPs.

Keep in mind, this app doesn't come preconfigured with a SSH server or service. You must input connection details, login credentials, and your private/public key for a SSH server you have access to at work or home. After you configure these, the app is straightforward to use.
