Mozilla in partnership with Mullvad has launched its own VPN. The company is joining the business after Opera launches its own VPN. The app which was introduced in beta stage, is currently available on invite-only service. Known as Firefox Private Network VPN, will be open to users in the US for testing, before being rolled out to other countries.
It is said that the VPN will use the WireGuard protocol to secure its connections. While it is still in a beta stage, it is expected that the final VPN version will be a paid service, with a price tag of $4.99 per month. Mozilla will also offer a free Firefox Private Network’s browser-level protection.
Mozilla has stated that they will have a no-logging policy through its Mullvad VPN partnership. It is using a newer WireGuard protocol and not other popular protocols like OpenVPN or IPsec which is used by most current VPN’s. Mozilla claims the WireGuard protocol offers faster speeds and improved encryption, which can be a selling point for this VPN.
Mozilla’s VPN service will have more than 100+ servers in 30+ countries and is currently supported on Windows 10, Android and Chromebooks with support for iOS, Mac and Linux coming soon. You cab get the Android Beta of Mozilla’s VPN, click HERE.
