 Mozilla VPN is Available in Singapore, Offering a Trusted Way to Keep Users’ Online Lives Safe and Secure

By Mozilla | General
July 20, 2020

A new VPN is introduced by Mozilla that helps users online lives remain safe and secure with a subscription protecting up to five devices.


Mozilla officially introduces the Mozilla VPN (Virtual Private Network) in Singapore today. The Mozilla VPN is now available on Windows. This fast and easy-to-use VPN service is brought to users by Mozilla, the makers of Firefox, and a trusted name in online consumer security and privacy services. The Mozilla VPN subscription is available for just US$4.99 per month (approximately S$6.95), and there are no long-term contracts required. The subscription protects up to five devices.

With millions of workers now working online and people spending more time at home, internet usage is reported to have surged by as much as 60 per cent in the past few months*. The increase in reliance on home networks presents an opportunity for people to review their online security and privacy. How to stay safe online has become part of the “new normal” discussion.

The Mozilla VPN helps people control their digital privacy. It encrypts users' devices adding an extra layer of protection for users' personal data and information. For example, it makes online transactions more private by masking users' IP addresses and locations. This added layer of protection also helps ensure communicating and making video calls with family and friends is more secure.

In a market crowded by companies making promises about privacy and security, it can be hard to know who to trust. Mozilla has a reputation for building products that help users keep their information safe. The Mozilla VPN is based on modern and lean technology, the WireGuard protocol’s 4,000 lines of code, is a fraction in size of legacy protocols used by other VPN service providers. With the Mozilla VPN users get an easy-to-use and simple interface designed for ease of use by anyone who is new to VPNs, or for those who want to simply turn it on and connect to the web.

This launch of Mozilla VPN follows months of beta testing. Feedback from beta users made it clear that greater control over how their data was being shared within their network was critically important. Mozilla’s transparent Data Privacy Principles have guided the design of the Mozilla VPN, and it doesn’t keep user data logs. Mozilla also does not partner with any third-party analytics platforms that build profiles of user behaviour.

In addition to Singapore, the Mozilla VPN is also available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, and New Zealand. There are plans to expand to other countries this fall.
