There are plenty of VPN options available on mobile devices, but if you’re looking for an alternative, you might be interested to learn that Mozilla has since released its VPN app for mobile devices. However, it should be noted that as it stands, it is currently in closed beta so you’ll need an invite to use it, at least for now.

In case you’re hearing this for the first time, Mozilla’s VPN service called the Firefox Private Network. The service will be powered by Mullvad VPN which claims that it has a no-logging policy, meaning that your online activity while you use the VPN will not be recorded, which adds an extra layer of privacy if that’s what you’re after.

Mozilla also claims that the Firefox Private Network will be using a newer version of the WireGuard standard. Apparently this will offer up faster speeds (sometimes using a VPN can affect your connectivity speeds) and better encryption, which presumably is what the company will be using to sell its service.

That being said, we should point out that the Firefox Private Network will be priced at $4.99 a month, unlike some of the other free VPNs online. If you’re interested in taking part in the closed beta, you can signup via the Firefox website and join the waitlist.
