Default Mozilla tests Premium VPN Service

This report is from gHacks:

Mozilla tests Premium VPN Service - gHacks Tech News
Quote:
Mozilla will start the test of a commercial VPN offering tomorrow for a subset of users in the United States.

The organization has not created its own VPN network but partnered up with the Swiss VPN provider ProtonVPN to use the established network of the provider.

The test starts on October 22, 2018 in the United States for a sample of users of Firefox 62. Only some users who use Firefox 62 in the United States will be invited to participate in the test.
It will be interesting to see how it goes.

From Softpedia News:

Mozilla Firefox to Come with ProtonVPN Built In
Quote:
Mozilla is looking to follow in the footsteps of Opera and offer a built-in VPN service in its browser, only that as compared to the now-Chinese-owned company, the Firefox developer wants to rely on a third-party service.

Bleeping Computer also has an article about this:

Firefox Targeting Competing VPN Sites With ProtonVPN Offer in New Test
Quote:
Mozilla has announced a Shield study where Firefox will promote the ProtonVPN service as a new revenue source. BleepingComputer was able to gain access to the study's extension and it appears that the ProtonVPN will be recommended when visiting VPN provider sites, streaming services, or when connecting to insecure wireless gateways.
