Mozilla's VPN service has officially launched and is now available for Windows and Android The company announced today in six countries worldwide, including the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The service is available for $ 4.99 a month and, like other VPNs, was designed to make browsing the web more private and secure. As part of the move, the service will be renamed from Firefox Private Network to Mozilla VPN announced last month.
Mozilla argues that its VPN service has some advantages over its many competitors. In many cases, it should offer a faster surfing experience because it is based on a protocol with less than a third of the lines of code of an average VPN service provider. The company also relies on the reputation it has built with its privacy-oriented browser, adding that this is the case only collects the information it needs to run a service and not keep user data logs.
The start of the VPN follows beta tests in the USA, which also included tests of a VPN that is integrated directly into the Firefox browser. Last month, Mozilla announced that this would be the case Tests that ask users to pay $ 2.99 a month for unlimited use of the extension, which should mask your data traffic within the browser and not system-wide.
In addition to the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, Mozilla states that its VPN will initially be available in Singapore, Malaysia, and New Zealand, and that availability will expand to other countries later this year. Mozilla is not only starting on Android and Windows, but will soon be officially available for iOS.
