Difficult to miss the VPN phenomenon? Formerly reserved for the IT department of large companies, the data encryption system on the Internet has become democratized to the point of becoming a commonplace application. Mozilla has just added a secure connection offer to its browser. In this guide, you will find all the good advice for using Mozilla VPN.
Reminder on how a VPN works
Internet security has become in a few years a major issue for our societies. This is the subject that concerns more and more Internet users all over the world. No wonder, then, to see big names on the web like Mozilla taking an interest in VPNs.
Virtual private networks or Virtual Private Network (VPN) have been popular for several months. Offers are multiplying and some companies no longer hesitate to advertise on major television channels.
As a result, VPN apps on the Play Store have never been so plentiful. Once installed and configured on your smartphone, these applications allow you to hide your device’s IP address and encrypt internet traffic.
All data that goes out and arrives on your phone goes through a secure computer tunnel. Your internet service provider, your company or the company offering you a public Wi-Fi connection (hotels, restaurants, airports, shopping centers) will no longer have access to your navigation information.
Your browsing habits, your personal data and everything that passes through your smartphone can no longer be monitored or sold to advertisers. The VPN guarantees your anonymity on the net and prevent Big Brother from analyzing everything you do on the net.
Try Mozilla Firefox VPN
Remember a few months ago we presented the Opera VPN service. It is now another web browser publisher entering the VPN market.
Mozilla VPN, formerly known as Firefox Private Network and only available in the United States, is coming to France. On the technical side, the Internet traffic encryption service is based on the infrastructure developed by the Swedish company Mullvad.
The system uses the WireGuard protocol which is more powerful and lighter than OpenVPN. However, the latter remains compatible with Mullvad’s offer. In terms of infrastructure, the Swedish company has 750 servers spread across 30 countries.
It doesn’t matter where you are. Mozilla VPN works everywhere and efficiently. The speeds offered offer an optimal user experience and allow you to enjoy the Internet without any constraints.
We just regret the absence of some options, such as that of a tool allowing to know the degree of load of each server. However, the application offers a very good grip. Installation and use have been designed to be accessible to as many people as possible.
