Mozilla, the nonprofit organization for data protection and security and manufacturer of the Firefox browser, starts its own VPN.
After a beta test phase, the organization now officially leads the Mozilla VPN for $ 5 a month. VPNs are used to access information outside the region and to protect yourself when surfing public networks. (For more information on why you should use a VPN, see this post.) With the Mozilla VPN, a single subscription can be used on up to five devices, there are no bandwidth restrictions and it is immediately available to users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand. The company plans to expand to other countries later this year.
The Mozilla VPN is currently available for Android and Windows 10, but the iOS version is still in the beta phase. The company states on its website that Linux and Max support is “available soon”.
Mozilla isn’t too far from the prices of other popular subscription VPNs that are already on the market. For example, private internet access costs about $ 3 a month if you pay per year (or about $ 10 a month that is paid monthly). ProtonVPN Plus now costs around $ 9 a month. According to Mozilla, this VPN is said to be fairly simple and easy to navigate, which means it is a good option for people who are new to VPN.
Some of the most important things to consider when buying a VPN are who is behind it, what is being logged and what are your individual requirements for functionality and speed. Every business needs to make money, and it’s important to consider what a business will get in return for making their product cheap or free for you.
Mozilla VPN states that network activity is not logged or tracked, and adheres to Mozillas Data protection principles. The VPN also does not work with third-party analytics platforms that want to profile your online activities Company says. According to WiredMozilla has ordered third party testing of the product. A report on the results will be released later this year.
