Mozilla announced yesterday that its Firefox browser would block third-party trackers for everyone by default.

Mozilla announced the Firefox Private Network , a new product that could give Firefox users even more privacy on the web.

Mozilla has recommended using Firefox Private Network if you want to have an encrypted connection while using Firefox on a public Wi-Fi network or if you just want to better hide from ad trackers.

The Firefox Private Network does have some limits. It’s a browser-based VPN, so it won’t mask anything you’re doing on the internet outside of Firefox and you have to install a dedicated VPN app if you want to protect more of your internet traffic.

You can try the Firefox Private Network which is free but the beta is only used by the US-based. If you are, install the Firefox Private Network from this page, click the icon that shows up in your toolbar, and a small menu will drop down where you can switch the VPN on or off.

Experience of Firefox Private Network:

  • The Firefox Private Network did change my IP, which should hinder third-party trackers; but sites might have still been able to serve me local ads.

The Firefox Private Network will be “free for a limited time.” Last October, Firefox showed an ad for a subscription to ProtonVPN to a small group of Firefox users, suggesting Mozilla may have been gauging interest in offering its own VPN.

Mozilla’s CEO recently said Firefox intends to offer a paid subscription service for “premium” features in October and that bandwidth for a VPN service could be one of them.
