The Mozilla VPN runs over 754 servers in 35 countries, which are operated by Mullvad and can be selected. All network activity and IP address is obfuscated using WireGuard protocol. This serves the privacy Mozilla has always been committed to, but also costs a few euros per month.
As of now, the Virtual Private Network (VPN) is also available in Germany and France for Windows 10, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS, previously it could already be used as Firefox Private Network in a test program and in other countries. Over the past few months, Firefox has taken a closer look at how people use the web: “That”s why we now know that users in France and Germany choose a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to protect their online privacy and data, especially when using public Wi-Fi.” This is exactly what the Mozilla VPN is designed for.
Mozilla protects you from being spied on, whether you are streaming, surfing or working. Thanks to the WireGuard protocol and the server network no one could see the activities, not even Mozilla itself. Only data that is actually needed to provide the service is collected. “Accordingly, we did not keep activity logs, never sell your data, and do not work with third-party platforms that could profile your online activities”, states in the announcement.
Paid services for a better Internet
Since there is no tracking, the VPN is also said to be surprisingly fast, due to a 4000-line code of the WireGuard protocol. Mozilla says the VPN was deliberately designed to be easy to use. You need to download the app, sign in with your Firefox account details and click to complete the setup process. One account protects up to five devices.
The cost is 9.99 euros for a single month. If one is not satisfied in the first month, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee. For a half-year subscription, the fees are 6.99 euros per month, for a year it is 4.99 euros.
Mozilla had only recently run into financial difficulties. The development of paid services got priority. Now Mozilla emphasizes that it is a non-profit organization that works for a better and healthier Internet – and every euro that goes into the VPN also supports the overall objective.
