Will Firefox include a built-in VPN?

Posted

Hey all, The Developer version of Opera now includes a free and unlimited built-in VPN. I have clung to Firefox for years because of its features and open-source nature but Opera is now making a very good case to switch as a VPN seems a very important addition to a browser. Are there any knows plans for Firefox to develop a similar feature in the coming releases? So far, no add-on has really convinced me of its reliability in this matter. Best, Lou

Hi

Thank you for your question.

There are a number of developments coming in Firefox at various stages of work and with differing levels of public information. New features are being planned, but I do not know if built in VPN is one of them at this time.

I am sorry that I cannot be more specific, but I hope this helps answer your question.
