When you browse the internet using Mozilla VPN on your device, your data is encrypted and routed through a secure web server, which prevents others from tracing your online activity back to your IP address. For added protection, you can configure Mozilla VPN to encrypt your information twice using multiple servers.

Follow these steps to enable double encryption on your device:

  1. Open Mozilla VPN and click (or tap) on Select Location.
  2. Select Multi-hop.
  3. Choose an entry location and an exit location. These will be the two servers through which your data will be encrypted when you browse.

The servers you have configured recently will appear under Recent connections.

Are there any disadvantages of using multiple servers to encrypt my data?

When you use multiple servers to encrypt your traffic, you may notice that your Internet speed slows down, the battery of your mobile devices may drain faster and the number of countries you can choose from may also be reduced.

Warning: Disguising Mozilla VPN as DNS traffic (port 53) and Multi-Hop cannot be used at the same time. If you enable both, only Multi-Hop will work.
