Mozilla VPN comes to Linux and macOS, but it will take a little more patience

mozilla-vpn

Although I will personally use them once or twice a year, there are different reasons for using a virtual private network. The best example we learned with Netflix, when it could not be accessed from a country other than the United States. Although (I think) there was always content in Spanish, if we wanted to enter Netflix we had to do it with a VPN. VPN services there are many, and for less than a year there is one more option: mozilla-vpn.

The service Mozilla VPN It's been available on Windows, Android, and iOS since July of last year, but Linux users were parked for a change (thanks, Mozilla). Since yesterday, any Linux Addicted reader can now use Mozilla VPN, because has also reached Linux, which most of us use, and macOS, Apple's desktop operating system. The main problem is that its use will not be instantaneous.

Mozilla VPN will put us on a waiting list

If you enter the link on the official Mozilla VPN page, your view will go to the banner with the text "Join the Waitlist", that is, there is a waiting list. To register you have to click here!, add an email account, indicate the country from which we connect and the platforms in which we are interested. Once we joined the waiting list, we have to wait for the fox company to contact us by e-mail and indicate the next steps to follow.

Mozilla VPN offers the following:

  • Device-level encryption.
  • More than 280 servers in more than 30 countries.
  • No bandwidth limit.
  • It does not save our network activity.
  • We can connect up to 5 devices.
  • $ 4.99 / month.

From what is said, Mozilla VPN is one one of the fastest available for Linux. This may make us opt for this option, since the price, although it is within the average, is not the cheapest we can find. And when it comes to security, Mozilla's proposal uses WireGuard to encrypt network activity and hide IP addresses.

Mozilla VPN is one of the new services that the fox company has created for profit, and joins others like Lockwise, Firefox Private Network, currently in beta and not available in Spain (1), or Firefox Relay offered free of charge. If I remember correctly, Firefox Send was the other tool that offered a payment method, but they closed the service because they discovered that it had been being used to send illegal content.

(1): I update with the detail that Firefox Private Network, the extension, will not be free. Considering that it is not available in Spain, it is not without grace that you had to use a VPN to get more information about another VPN :)
