About our trusted partner
Firefox Private Network browser protection uses a server provided by our partner Cloudflare, who collects a limited amount of data and deletes it permanently after 24 hours.
How does Firefox Private Network browser extension work?
The Firefox Private Network browser extension creates an encrypted tunnel called a proxy between your browser and a network managed by our trusted partner Cloudflare. While you browse the web, your browsing data flows from Firefox directly through this secure connection. This means that your ISP, network manager, or eavesdroppers on a public Wi-Fi network cannot see your browsing. Since your web traffic is proxied by Cloudflare before it reaches the web, your location and IP address are also masked so that online trackers have a harder time following you as you browse.
Why do I have to pay for the Firefox Private Network browser extension?
There is always a cost associated with the network infrastructure required to run a secure proxy service like the Firefox Private Network browser extension. We believe the simplest and most transparent way to account for these costs is by providing this service at a modest subscription fee.
Does Firefox Private Network work on all browsers?
The free extension requires the Firefox browser for desktop, which is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Is this a VPN?
No. The Firefox Private Network browser extension offers set and forget network protection while you shop, bank, and browse in Firefox. It’s lightweight and simple. A VPN is a more robust software application that allows location switching. It’s a separate app you install to secure everything on your device that connects to the internet, including all browsers, social media apps, and banking apps.
