Following last year's launch of Firefox Private Network (FPN) VPN as a browser extension, Mozilla is now doing a broader rollout of the service. Neowin reports the organization released a beta version of FPN for Windows and Android. At the moment, its use is still restricted to the US and you also need an invite to join.
Firefox Private Network is one of the latest efforts by Mozilla to give users more privacy when connecting to the internet, this accompanies other moves that block online tracking. By using a virtual private network (VPN) like Firefox Private Network, you can better protect yourself when using public Wi-Fi networks. You get additional protection from online sources too who will be unable to see your IP address.

According to the FPN website, the app is available for Firefox, Windows 10, Android, and Chromebook at this time. The site also says that apps for iOS, Mac, and Linux are coming soon. The full-device protection service is priced at $4.99 per month and lets you pick from servers in over 30 countries from five of your devices.
