Does Firefox Private Network log my browsing history?

Firefox is committed to protecting your privacy. Our privacy policy outlines how we handle your data. The browser-level protection, provided by Cloudflare, temporarily logs unidentified browsing history and deletes this data within 24 hours as a mechanism to detect and handle abuse on the network. Neither Firefox nor Cloudflare is able to associate usage with users as each party holds partial aspects of this data which are never joined.
