The Firefox Private Network service launched in beta just the previous year as a browser extension for desktop versions of the Firefox web browser is all set to be renamed as Mozilla VPN.
According to a blog post, Mozilla VPN will move out of the beta and be available as a standalone service later this year with select regions, which will include the United States.
The VPN will be accessible for $4.99 every month and the user will have the option to utilize around five devices with a similar account. Mozilla specifies this pricing is just temporary yet has not clarified whether the price will be increased or new plans introduced for fewer devices.
Mozilla VPN will be launched as a standalone and system-wide VPN service for Android, iOS, Windows, ChromeOS, macOS, and Linux platforms throughout the next few weeks.
While the Android, iOS, Windows, and Chromebook clients will be available at first, Mozilla is likewise chipping away at Mac and Linux clients which have additionally been requested by the beta testers.
Mozilla, as opposed to other web browser makers like Opera, isn't offering the service for nothing. They claim that a paid service will permit the organization to continue offering the service without benefiting from users’ data.
The service, in its current form as Firefox Private Network, is fuelled by Mullvad VPN and has servers in excess of 30 nations. It runs on the WireGuard standard that offers more privacy and better execution when contrasted with customary standards like OpenVPN being another protocol; it may not be as steady as the 'legacy' ones.
In the event that the user wishes to be a part of the beta testing or express interest for the service to be accessible in their region, they can join the waitlist by signing up the official website of the Firefox Private Network VPN and they will be notified whenever Firefox Private Network is accessible for their device and region.
