Mozilla Launches A Standalone VPN Service For Android, iOS, Windows, Chrome And Windows



Mozilla, the guys behind Firefox browser has launched a standalone VPN that will be compatible with Windows, Android and Chromebooks and as well support for iOS, Mac and Linux.

According to Mozilla, the VPN is built in-house and uses the more current Wireguard protocol instead of OpenVPN and IPsec which are used by many popular VPN providers. This gives Mozilla more advantage since the Wireguard protocol offers faster speeds and improved encryption. The service is powered by Mullvad VPN.

Mozilla already has a free VPN service via an extension but exclusive to Firefox browser alone. People on Chrome, Opera and other browsers don't have access to the service.

This new VPN service is a paid service which means Mozilla, a company well known to respect users privacy won't sell off users data for profit. The new service also boasts of servers in 30 countries and allows unlimited bandwidth and allows users connect up to 5 devices at once.

For now, the VPN service is still in a beta state and you will have to sign up for a wait list to get an invite. The service currently costs $4.99 a month, though Firefox says its a "limited-time beta pricing."
