Mozilla brings its VPN to Mac and Linux

You can use the service on up to five devices with a $5/month subscription.


The Mozilla VPN has at last landed on Mac and Linux. Following a Private Network extension it brought to Firefox in 2019 and a closed beta, Mozilla rolled out a Windows and Android VPN in July. It later introduced an iOS version.

The VPN is currently available in six countries — the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia — and it’ll open in more regions soon, according to Mozilla. A $5/month subscription covers up to five devices, so you’ll be able to use the VPN on your phone, tablet and computer, even if your PC runs Linux.

The Mozilla VPN isn’t the cheapest option on the market. However, Mozilla has said that, because it uses fewer lines of code than other VPNs, the service is faster than many rival ones. You can connect to more than 280 servers in more than 30 countries via the VPN without any bandwidth restrictions. The service uses WireGuard device-level encryption and it doesn’t log your network activity.
