Mozilla to launch its VPN product soon
Mozilla announced it is launching its own VPN product soon. Mozilla VPN as it's called, has been running in beta for users in the US.
Mozilla VPN offers protection for up to five devices on Windows, Android and iOS. It is priced at $4.99 ( ₹400 approx) per month. Mozilla VPN will exit beta in the next few weeks and users in the US will be able to purchase it. Mozilla plans to launch its VPN in other markets soon.
Mozilla assures that it will never track users’ browsing habits and avoid any third party in-app data analytics platform. Mozilla VPN also comes with features like split tunneling, and it’s available on Mac as well. It will be available on Linux too. The company said these features were introduced on user feedback.
“With the VPN in your hands, we confirmed some of our initial hypotheses and identified important priorities for the future. For example, over 70% of early Beta-testers say that the VPN helps them feel empowered, safe, and independent while being online. In addition, 83% of early Beta-testers found the VPN easy to use,” Mozilla said in a release.
Mozilla’s VPN service was running in beta as Firefox Private Network and as an extension for the Firefox browser. Mozilla is not only renaming it to Mozilla VPN but launching it as a standalone product.
