Firefox browser, has now launched its own VPN (Virtual Private Network) service to Android, Firefox, Chromebook, iOS, Mac, Linux and Windows 10 through a dedicated app.
The app is currently in the beta phase, and you will have to join the waitlist and you get notified when Firefox Private Network is available for your device and region. The monthly cost is currently set at $4.99. The service is currently in beta and is only available in the United States.
The VPN is built by Firefox and runs on a global network of servers. It uses a Wireguard protocol, which is supposed to be faster and more secure than other standards.
With the app, you can simultaneously connect five devices and use servers in over 30 countries. It’s not the first time we see a VPN from Mozilla. Last September, in its browser, the company rolled out a VPN that was also available to Users in the U.S. Some browsers such as Opera already have an in-built VPN.
Mozilla claims its working on bringing the the service to more platforms and regions. However, they haven’t shared the time frame.
