Without a VPN you are exposed to real online threats


Data thieves look for unprotected devices, and those that do not use encryption are easy targets.

Malware & phishing

These types of attacks are common, and it’s difficult to avoid them without protection.

Identity theft

If you don’t use security software, you might end up getting your login credentials stolen.

Ad manipulation

It is easy for advertisers to influence your behavior if you expose all your browsing habits.

ISP tracking

Without a VPN, your internet provider can collect & sell your data to advertisers.

Price discrimination

Online businesses might show you higher prices if they see you are in a more affluent city.

Get top security and privacy

Enjoy secure, encrypted browsing 

When you browse using a Firefox VPN, all the traffic between your browser and the VPN server is encrypted. That way, anyone snooping on your online connection can’t read your data.

Keep your IP to yourself

Your IP is like your digital home address. With a VPN on, it will be replaced with the VPN server’s IP. That way, nobody can trace you without you leaving identifiable information yourself. 

Utilize extended privacy protection 

A good Firefox VPN will keep your DNS and IP addresses secret. A great one will also ensure that WebRTC – the technology that enables web video chats – doesn’t leak your data either. 

Immerse yourself in global entertainment

Access geo-blocked websites

From censorship to refusing to be GDPR compliant, some websites will be closed to you due to where you’re connecting from. But with a VPN, you can connect from anywhere. 

Stream privately

If you like feeling safe, you’ll love a VPN. Imagine enjoying your favorite shows or movies knowing your digital life is protected. Get a VPN and relax with private streaming!

Hunt down the best price

There’s more to smart shopping than downloading Honey. As shops display different prices to different countries, shop around with a Firefox VPN to get the best deal. 

A good Firefox VPN will keep your DNS and IP addresses secret. A great one will also ensure that WebRTC – the technology allowing web video chats – doesn’t leak your data either.

  2. Install it on your browser.
  3. Log in, connect, and enjoy.

How do I know if Firefox VPN is working?

You can run a few tests, like looking up your IP and DNS addresses. We have an article on how to check whether the VPN works.

How do I browse on Firefox with a VPN?
