Virtual private networks are a dime a dozen these days, but if you’re a Firefox devotee, you may want to check out Mozilla’s newly launched VPN service, which costs only $4.99 a month. That seems like a pretty sweet deal for something that’s described as trusted, fast, and easy to use (gee, aren’t they all?).
“In a market crowded by companies making promises about privacy and security, it can be hard to know who to trust,” wrote Mozilla. “Mozilla has a reputation for building products that help you keep your information safe. We follow our easy to read, no-nonsense Data Privacy Principles which allow us to focus only on the information we need to provide a service. We don’t keep user data logs.”
“We don’t partner with third-party analytics platforms who want to build a profile of what you do online. And since the makers of this VPN are backed by a mission-driven company you can trust that the dollars you spend for this product will not only ensure you have a top-notch VPN, but also are making the internet better for everyone.”
We’ll have to, uh, trust Mozilla that this is all true, but what about the other part of the equation: speeds? Unfortunately, the company hasn’t provided any such metrics, so we can only assume that they’re somewhat competitive with other major VPN services (e.g., ExpressVPN, NordVPN).
