Mozilla started testing a virtual private network (VPN) service offering since 2018 to see if users will be willing to pay for better privacy.
Now, the company has formally launched the VPN service, which is known as Mozilla VPN and available for Android and Windows 10, starting from $4.99 per month. The VPN service will ensure that internet traffic from Firefox and the server is encrypted to better thwart the efforts of third party snoopers on its users online activity.
The service is currently available in the United States, Canada, the UK, Singapore, Malaysia, and New Zealand, with plans of expansion to other countries this fall.
What differentiates Mozilla’s VPN from the rests?
Mozilla VPN is capable of protecting up to five devices using device-level encryption, albeit only for Android and Windows devices for now. It runs on a global network of servers powered by Mullvad using the WireGuard protocol, while the company boasts of over 280 servers in more than 30 countries, without bandwidth restrictions.
And the Firefox maker is a mission-driven company, which means you can trust that the money you spend for the VPN product will not only ensure you have a top-notch privacy, but also help in making the internet safer for everyone.
How to Get Started with Mozilla VPN
Mozilla VPN is available in the United States, Canada, the UK, Singapore, Malaysia, and New Zealand, for just $4.99 USD per month.
On installation, the first thing you'll notice is how fast your browsing experience becomes. As Mozilla VPN is based on modern and lean technology, the WireGuard protocol having only 4,000 lines of code, which is a fraction of the size of legacy protocols used by other VPN service providers.
Mozilla VPN has an easy-to-use and simple interface which people who are new to VPN won't find confusing, and setting it up and getting onto the web is just as easy as a breeze.
