Today, we’re launching two new features to give you an added layer of protection with our trusted Mozilla VPN
service. Mozilla has a reputation for building products that help you keep your information safe. These new features will help users do the following:
For those who watch out for unsecure networks
If you’re someone who keeps our Mozilla VPN
service off and prefers to manually turn it on yourself, this feature will help you out. We’ll notify you when you’ve joined a network that is not password protected or has weak encryptions. By just clicking on the notification you can turn the Mozilla VPN
service on, giving you an added layer of protection ensuring every conversation you have is encrypted over the network. This feature is available on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS platforms.
For those at home, who want to keep all your devices connected
Occasionally, you might need to print out forms for an upcoming doctor visit or your kid’s worksheets to keep them busy. Now, we’ve added Local Area Network Access, so your devices can talk with each other without having to turn off your VPN. Just make sure that the box is checked in Network Settings when you are on your home network. This feature is available on Windows, Linux, Mac and Android platforms.
