Firefox Private Network (Beta) Terms of Service
Firefox Private Network (“Service”) is an experimental offering, currently limited to the United States. Please read these Terms of Service carefully because they explain important information about your use of the Service.
If you activate this Service, it keeps your web traffic private from your internet service provider, and most websites you visit by encrypting and routing it through our partners’ networks instead. It will also replace your actual IP address to keep your personal IP address private from others, such as the websites you visit and your Internet Service Provider.
You Must Be Eligible to Use the Service
You must be in the United States to download and use the Service.
Your Privacy. The Firefox Private Network Privacy Notice explains what information is sent when you use the Service and how we handle and share that information.
Permissions Necessary to Provide the Service
There are two options for Firefox Private Network:
- FPN Browser Protection, which protects your web browsing within Firefox, and
- FPN Full-device Protection, which protects all your device’s internet connections.
Our partner for FPN Browser Protection is Cloudflare. Our partner for FPN Full-Device Protection is Mullvad.
Your Use of the Service. You give Mozilla, Cloudflare, and Mullvad all rights to operate the Service, including processing the data you upload to or access through the Service.

When you sign up for FPN Browser Protection, you get four passes per month. Each time you turn FPN Browser Protection on, you claim one of your passes and it runs for eight hours without stopping. Once you use all four passes, you will not be able to use FPN Browser Protection until the next month, when you receive 4 new passes. Unused passes cannot be transferred month-to-month.
Payment. We offer the FPN Full-device Protection service as a monthly, automatically renewing subscription. When you sign up, you authorize us to charge the payment card you provide for the subscription fees for the first month of the FPN service. Your plan renews automatically each month, and you authorize us to charge the monthly subscription fees each month.
Device Limit. When your subscription is active, you can connect up to 5 devices to the Firefox Private Network. If you stop paying, we will suspend your account, and we may delete it after 2 months of not paying.
30-Day Guarantee. The first time you subscribe to FPN Full-device Protection, you may cancel your account within the first 30 days, and if you request it, Mozilla will refund your first month subscription. This offer only applies the first time you subscribe to FPN Full-device Protection. If you decide to subscribe to FPN Full-device Protection after cancelling, you are not eligible for the 30-day money back guarantee.
We reserve the right to discontinue your use of FPN immediately if we discover fraudulent payment, such as the use of a stolen payment card.
You may cancel your subscription to the FPN Full-device Protection at any time by clicking the “Cancel Subscription” link in any email that we send you and deactivating your subscription. If you choose to cancel, auto-renewal will stop, we will not charge you for any future payment periods, and you will lose access to the service at the end of the current billing cycle.
