Mozilla, the company behind the Firefox web browser, has been experimenting with creating a VPN service for some time. Unlike VPN powered browsers like Opera, Mozilla tried to make its VPN integrated browser a paid service. While the VPN service on the browser is still in its beta phase, an Android app has been released by Mozilla for the same.
While there is a piece of very small information available on the Play Store listing, one can find descriptive information on the official site of the Firefox Private Network. The service is powered by Mullvad VPN, which claims to have a no-logging policy. Instead of more traditional protocols like OpenVPN or IPsec, Firefox Private Network utilizes the newer WireGuard standard, which is designed to offer faster speeds and improved encryption.
Firefox Private Network covers more than 30 countries and supports up to five simultaneous connections. The service currently costs $4.99/mo, though Firefox says this is “limited-time beta pricing.”
