Firefox Private Network: Mozilla's new "VPN" for more security

Firefox Private Network: Firefox improves its security features with a new one beta extension which secures your personal information and conceals the address IP protecting you from third-party trackers.

Firefox Private Network

Until now, if you wanted to try new Firefox features without installing a potentially volatile browser beta, Firefox Test Pilot lets you experiment with extensions before they are officially released. Pilot Test closed in January this year, but returned with a new extension browser.

Firefox Private Network safeguards your devices when in public use WiFi, while hiding the IP address to make tracking more difficult. It actually looks like VPN and Mozilla says it "provides a secure, encrypted path to the web" to prevent the theft of your personal information from other users on your WiFi network. However, Mozilla does not want to call the new extension one VPN, which other browsers like Opera offer by default, even in the mobile version.

The browser extension has a switch so you can easily turn it on or off at any time. You can try it for free during the beta trial, as long as you are in the US. To learn more or to download the extension, go to the Firefox website.
