Firefox Releases Dedicated VPN App for Android

Mozilla launched its browser-based Firefox Private Network VPN service in the US a year ago.

The Mozilla Foundation - behind the popular Firefox browser - has announced its bringing its own VPN service to Android, Chromebook and Windows devices, offering greater security, more speed and at a reasonable cost. However, it is available on an invite-only basis right now and is limited to the USA market, but expansion plans are in the pipeline.

You can register your interest at present and may receive an invite to join the service. This is the primary differentiating factor for the Firefox Private Network. The company promises that it doesn't breach your privacy by avoiding the practice of logging network activity. The service from Mozilla will support five simultaneous connections when launched, with access points in more than 30 countries. There's no sense in paying for a service if it is limited to only one or two of your devices. There's now a waitlist for beta access, so we haven't had the chance to test the new service, but there are some notable features that help Firefox Private Browsing stand out in the already overcrowded VPN market.


The Play Store listing is light on details, but the official site for the Firefox Private Network has everything you need to know. The price is expected to be increased once the service gets a wider public rollout. If you have received an invite, download the VPN, choose your preferred server, and hit the toggle to start browsing privately. This note doesn't make much sense as users are still asked to ask for an invite for a paid beta service, which is quite unusual.

The Firefox Private Network VPN is powered by Mullvad VPN. Firefox has plans to expand the testing program to iOS, Linux, and Mac in the coming months.
