Mozilla is launching new features in its VPN service to provide extra protection and keep user data secure in different scenarios.
These functions take into account the dynamics of users when working or studying, whether at home or in public places, to improve the Mozilla VPN service.
Mozilla VPN adds better protection for home and public networks
One of Mozilla VPN’s new features will make it easier for users to connect to other devices on the local network. So far, when a user wants to connect to a new device, he or she first has to disconnect from the VPN service.
This not only involves a hassle but also interrupts the use of the VPN. A dynamic that changes thanks to the latest update, since it will be possible to connect to any device on a network without turning off the VPN. The only requirement is to enable this option via a checkbox in Network Settings. This new feature is available on Android devices and Mac, Linux, and Windows computers.
And on the other hand, Mozilla VPN will also protect the user when their computer connects to a network that may be vulnerable, even when the service is not being used. That is, if the Mozilla service, which is running in the background on the device, detects that the computer is connected to an insecure network, it will display an alert to the user to activate the VPN.
That’s a dynamic that works on Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, and Windows, allowing the user to have this protection on any of their devices. So whether you connect to the home network or a public network that is not adequately protected, you can resort to the new Mozilla VPN features.
Mozilla launched its VPN service last year in some markets, including the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada.
