What is Mozilla VPN and how does it work?

When you connect online with Mozilla VPN, it hides your real location and protects your data from data collectors. Without a VPN, your connection to a site usually isn’t secure so data collectors can see what information your computer is sending out as well as your IP address.

How does Mozilla VPN protect me?

When you visit a website without Mozilla VPN, that site’s server can see your IP address (your computer’s location). When you use Mozilla VPN to connect to the Internet, you use the IP address of one of our servers instead of your real IP address. That will throw off data collectors who profile you based on your location. With Mozilla VPN, you can choose from servers in 30+ countries and register up to five devices.

How do I use Mozilla VPN?

If you have a Windows 10, Windows 11, Mac, Linux, Android, or iOS device, Mozilla VPN can protect you. To get started:

  1. Download the VPN through the official Mozilla VPN website or through the Google Play or Apple App stores for a small fee.
  2. Open Mozilla VPN.
  3. Sign in to your Firefox Account or through the Apple App store if you're on iOS.
  4. Turn on the VPN by sliding the button so that it turns green.
