Mozilla VPN Now Available for Linux

Jan 14, 2021

The promised subscription-based VPN service from Mozilla is now available for the Linux platform.

Back in July 2020, Mozilla launched a subscription-based VPN service and made it immediately available for Android, iOS, and Windows. Linux and macOS users, however, were left in the lurch. That has officially changed, with Mozilla making their VPN available for the two operating systems missing in the original mix.

The new VPN service isn’t free. In fact, it’s a bit pricier than a number of other options on the market. What do you get for your $4.99/month? Users can enjoy the service on up to five different devices (be they desktops, laptops, phones, or tablets), and with over 280 servers available in 6 countries (with zero bandwidth restrictions), Mozilla claims their VPN is one of the fastest available. This is achieved with the use of high-speed, low-level cryptographic algorithms.

The current country list for the Mozilla VPN is the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia. According to Mozilla, there will be more regions coming soon.

As for encryption and IP address obfuscation, the Mozilla VPN uses WireGuard and zero network activity is logged to servers. So if speed and security are priorities to you, the $4.99/month might be reasonable.
