Mozilla VPN

DLN Guys, love the podcasts, fun and informative. Always the best security advice around. Any insight into Mozilla’s new VPN service?

Thanks,
Ed

They released multiple version on opening day except for Linux support which seemed strange to me. I already use Mullvad which is what the servers are based on so it’s basically the same thing with wireguard. I’ll just stick with Mullvad for now.

If you like to support Mozilla, getting their VPN might be the better choice rather than giving them a single donation.

Mozilla VPN is a wrapper for Mullvad VPN.

There may be some separation of identity advantage if Mozilla holds your personal info instead of Mullvad (I can only guess if that’s the case) but the choice would probably be which software between the two works best for you.

Is this like a known practice in VPNs? to use others to build up there own servers?

Purism’s thingy uses PIA as the backbone for their Librem VPN.
