Mozilla launches a VPN app for Android and Windows

Mozilla, the organization behind Firefox browser, is bringing its VPN (Virtual Private Network) service to Android and Windows 10 through a dedicated app.

The app is currently in the beta phase, and you need an invite to sign up. Once you get an invite, you need to pay $4.99 a month, because privacy is not a free lunch. In return, Mozilla vows not to log your network traffic or your browsing history.

The VPN uses a new Wireguard protocol, which is supposed to be faster and more secure than other standards such as OpenVPN. Mozilla said with the app, you’ll be able to connect five devices simultaneously and use servers located in more than 30 countries.

  1. Will this anything to the current set of VPN service providers? WindScribe and Proton offer similar services and many other providers.

    Privacy is not a free lunch?
    – WindScribe VPN on iPhone is free
    – Proton VPN on Windows 10 is free
    (some restrictions)

  3. Firefox VPN is provided by Mullvad which I’m using now. I like the fact that Mullvad is not asking for any personal information when signing up for their service. You can even mail them cash.
