Mozilla: is preparing the Firefox Private Network beta service

Firefox Private Network: Mozilla is getting ready to release the first public beta of its upcoming VPN service for Firefox in the coming weeks.

Mozilla Developers Begin Developing Firefox Virtual Private Network (VPN) September 2019. The new service adds a proxy server to the browser. It is currently only available to users in the United States and is more like the Opera browser VPN feature, ie it acts as a proxy and not exactly a VPN.Firefox Private Network

The Firefox VPN protects the user's data by encrypting it while concealing the true IP address of the connection. Mozilla chose Cloudflare as its partner. Firefox users connect to the nearest Cloudflare data center when they activate the virtual private network in their browser.

The first version released for the United States did not have enough features: there was no option to select servers per country to connect to and it did not provide any connection information.

Mozilla has revealed the next steps of the project in a new one announcement on the official Firefox Private Network website:

One of the VPN packages available for Firefox will be free.
Those who try beta versions will automatically be moved to the new versions of Firefox Private Network.

Those who try the beta will have a four-hour 12 Private Network. So if you're on public Wi-Fi, and turning on the Private Network it will run without stopping for three hours. The beta testers will have four hours at the beginning of each month.

We're almost ready to invite beta testers to try out Firefox Private Network protection. You can subscribe to the waiting list. This beta will protect your entire device and offer the option to switch between servers from 39 countries.

The upcoming VPN service looks like it will work on the device just like any other VPN service, e.g. NordVPN or Private Internet Access.

Mozilla says little in its announcement, as the only information it has provided is that it will have servers in 39 countries. The beta release will be done with invitations and will start in the coming weeks.
