Mozilla’s VPN service has been officially launched and is now available for Windows and Android in six countries worldwide, including the US, Canada and the UK, the company announced today. According to The Verge, the service is available for $ 4.99 per month and, like other VPNs, is designed to make browsing the Internet more private and secure.
As part of the move, the service will be renamed from Firefox Private Network to Mozilla VPN, a change announced last month. The company says it should provide a faster browsing experience in many cases, as it’s based on a protocol with less than a third of the code lines from an average VPN service provider.
Mozilla also relies on the reputation it has built with its privacy-focused browser, adding that it only collects the information it needs to run a service and does not maintain any user data logs. Including the US, Canada and the UK, Mozilla says its VPN will initially also be available in Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand, and may expand its availability to more countries later this year.
About the launch on Android and Windows, Mozilla says it will officially come to iOS soon. (ANI)
