Firefox could launch a paid version with VPN and cloud storage this fall

Ivan, 10 June 2019

Firefox is building a paid version of its namesake browser that's aimed for an Autumn release. This was revealed by Mozilla CEO Chris Beard, who said a paid version of Firefox could include a free VPN and cloud storage.

While he didn't go into specifics on how much a paid Firefox would cost per month it's clear that it will include a VPN with a limited amount of data with a premium tier for metered access.

Mozilla has experimented with a paid VPN service, when it partnered with ProtonVPN to offer its users a $10/month subscription.
