Originally intended for use in companies, VPN services are now also popular with users who hide their online activities or want to circumvent Internet censorship in their country. However, location-based restrictions of streaming services can also be overcome.

A problem with VPN connections is the possibly lower transmission speeds, which result from the redirection of data traffic via a VPN server. However, Mozilla promises a fast browsing experience, among other things through a lean infrastructure. Mozilla uses WireGuard’s VPN protocol, which is said to consist of only 4000 lines of code – less than a third of the code of other VPN services.

Mozilla is not just about offering its users more security and privacy. The VPN service is also designed to generate additional income and dependency on search agreements, especially with Google, to reduce.

Users in whose country Mozilla VPN is not yet available can register on a waiting list on the Mozilla website. The company offers the service for Windows, Android and iOS on. Versions for macOS and Linux are to follow.

For $ 4.99 a month, Mozilla promises device-level connection encryption and no bandwidth restrictions. The service can be used with up to five devices. Mozilla handles connections through more than 280 servers in more than 30 countries. To protect privacy, Mozilla also guarantees that it will not record network activity.
