VPN vs Private Network

I have been using Mozilla VPN for quite a while now. I have a love/hate relationship with it as I have to turn it off and on often throughout the day as certain websites will not work while the VPN is on. My question is, should I add Private Network to my system or should I switch to the Private Network instead of the VPN? I am a complete novice so I don't understand the technical issues, advantages or disadvantages between the two.

Hello!

Thank you for reaching out,

The Firefox Private Network is a browser extension that costs 2.99/month, versus the Mozilla VPN app that is a standalone app that costs 4.99/mo. The extension only covers browser activity and doesn't have any configurable settings, whereas the Mozilla VPN has more configuration options and covers all internet activity on the device.

I hope you may find this helpful, and let us know if you need anything else.
