Mozilla is expected to expand its virtual private network (VPN) offering in Germany and France by the end of Q1 2021, which includes the first extension of the service within the EU.

The move comes after a browser maker officially launched the Mozilla VPN service last summer in the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia.

The Mozilla VPN service, first introduced as a Firefox extension called Firefox Private Network, has expanded into a full VPN device client, available for Windows 10, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS devices.

This service, built around the WireGuard protocol, uses servers provided by Mullvad and currently costs $ 5 / month.

Mozilla claims that the VPN service currently operates on more than 280 servers in more than 30 countries worldwide, excluding “login” and “no bandwidth” policies.

Since its unannounced announcement in 2019 and after its official launch in 2020, the VPN service has been one of the most anticipated VPN offerings on the market, mainly due to Mozilla’s initial privacy reputation.

The browser maker currently uses a waiting list to register and be notified when a VPN service launches in their country.

The VPN service is also the first commercial product of Mozilla as part of a new business plan the browser maker adopted last year.

In August 2020, Mozilla fired more than 250 employees and moved away from several open and non-profit products to focus on building its revenue streams as part of its Google search agreement that often cites most of the organization’s budget over the past decade.

Mozilla VPN is currently available in the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia.
