To let someone have more security on the web, Firefox has launched a browser extension named FPN (Firefox Private Network). Mainly, it’s a VPN service that will protect your privacy while using Public WiFi and network. For that, FPN works to encrypt the online activity by converting information into code and limit what websites and advertisers can track about the user. As the extension is a browser-based VPN, it won’t conceal what you’re doing outside of Firefox from the view of others. However, FPN is currently available for the users in the United States only but a little tweak allows you to enjoy its benefit all around the world. To make your path easier, we are here with the method describing how to use Firefox Private Network outside US.

But if your requirements are minimal and want to use FPN, you must be logged into your Firefox account while using the Firefox desktop browser. For a restricted time period, it is free to try which simply suggest that it may become a paid service in the future.
