Mozilla has officially launched a new privacy-focused VPN service, called Firefox Private Network, as a browser extension that aims to encrypt your online activity and limit what websites and advertisers know about you.

Firefox Private Network service is currently in beta and available only to desktop users in the United States as part of Mozilla’s recently expunged “Firefox Test Pilot” program that lets users try out new experimental features before they were officially released.

The Firefox Test Pilot program was first launched by the company three years ago but was shut down in January this year. The company now decided to bring the program back but with some changes.

“The difference with the newly relaunched Test Pilot program is that these products and services may be outside the Firefox browser, and will be far more polished, and just one step shy of general public release,” said Marissa Wood, vice president of product at Mozilla.
