Mozilla is all set to launch Beta version for its latest VPN

In the upcoming weeks, Mozilla will launch its Beta version of their VPN service. Earlier Firefox launched its Firefox Private Network that closely looked like any other third-party VPN extension. It did not bring much to the table and was very limited in terms of options and facilities.

The Firefox Private Network has been a browser-based VPN (Virtual Private Network). What that means is, the security features under the virtual private network would be limited to just the Mozilla Firefox browser. When you leave the browser and let us suppose you start using another browser, then in that case, your browsing would not be covered under that private network.

That was like any basic VPN connection where you connect your computer or other devices like smartphone to the Virtual Private Network, the computer masks itself so well to look as though it is on the same local network as of the VPN.

And that feature of the device- computer or tablet or smartphone masks itself and side by side provides you a safe and secure pathway or connection to let your browsing traffic pass through. This helps and encourages the users to securely access local network resources, and it does not at all matter, from which corner of the world you access the internet and browse.

The users find it very beneficial since whenever they want to browse with a masked identity, their VPN does the job really well. These days a huge chunk of users are the people who are using public Wi-Fi or those who wish to get access to geographically blocked applications, pages and websites.

With the Beta version coming in place, for which Cloudfare serves as the partner for the service, Mozilla invites people as beta testers and gives them opportunity to see for themselves this new version. They would be giving a total of 12 hours of Private Network by the way of four 3 hour passes.

Firefox Private Network has designed and is providing the beta version of its virtual private network. This private network focuses to protect user data through encryption and masking the IP address of the connection simultaneously.

Mozilla Firefox announced on their website, and we quote verbatim, as it was:
A version of Private Network will still be free
As one of our beta testers, you’ll automatically be converted to a new version of Firefox Private Network. This offers all the same benefits as before, but for a limited amount of time each month.
You’ll get 12 hours of Private Network in the form of four three-hour passes. Next time you’re on public Wi-Fi, turn on Private Network to claim one of your passes. Once you validate a pass, it runs without stopping for three hours. You’ll get four new passes at the beginning of every month.
For unlimited access, you have the opportunity to join our invite-only VPN beta. We’re nearly ready to invite our beta testers to try out Firefox Private Network full-device protection. You can join the waitlist right now — before we open it up to the public. This invite-only VPN beta will protect your entire device and offers the option to switch between servers in 39 countries.
Thanks again for participating in the Firefox Private Network beta. You’re helping us build products that put people and their privacy first.

Their Firefox Private Network is absolutely free, but to be able to use the version beta, they require you to be United States based. For using beta version, you should have Firefox on your device installed, and plus signed in to your Firefox account.

Since Cloudfare is the partner to provide the VPN services, when Mozilla Firefox users use their Private Network in the web browser to browse, they automatically get connected to the nearest data centre.
