Mozilla has announced that its VPN service will officially start later this summer after the end of the beta testing phase of Firefox Private Network. The product has also been renamed from Firefox Private Network and will now be called Mozilla VPN. While Firefox Private Network was initially an extension of Mozilla’s Firefox browser, Mozilla VPN will be a full-device VPN with clients available for Windows, Chrome OS, Android, and iOS.
During the beta of Firefox Private Network, testers asked the company to release a Mac client as well, and Mozilla has now said it will bring its VPN to both Mac and Linux. When Mozilla launches VPN, Mozilla will continue to use its current pricing model of $4.99 per month for a limited time. For this price, users can protect up to five devices on Windows, Android, and iOS.
However, as with Firefox Private Network, Mozilla VPN will first be available to users in the US, although Mozilla plans to make it available in other regions in the future. Mozilla VPN is built by Firefox and the service runs on a global network of servers powered by its partner Mullvad using the new WireGuard protocol. Mullvad is also committed to not keeping any logs of any kind on users of the VPN.
Interested users can sign up for the Mozilla VPN waiting list and the company will notify you as soon as the product is available.
