Service update: NordVPN proxy extension for Mozilla Firefox
After we released our first proxy extension for Google Chrome back in September, one of the top questions on our followers’ minds was “what about Firefox?” Less than two months later, we can answer it with “yes, we have it covered too!” We’re delighted to introduce the brand new VPN extension for Mozilla Firefox, which is exactly as lightweight and efficient as the one for Chrome. Let’s recap what an encrypted proxy extension can do for you.
Introducing the new NordVPN Firefox extension
The hotly anticipated security solution is here to protect your browsing activity and enhance your online freedom. Plus, our proxy extension is extra light and fast so that you can switch between different locations in no time. Enable the NordVPN extension for Firefox to:
Keep your IP address private
Use this tool to encrypt your Internet traffic and hide your actual IP address. At the moment we have more than 1,600 unique IPs in 60+ countries, and our list is always growing. As soon as you connect to one of our remote VPN servers, your online activity is encrypted, and your device gets the IP address of that specific server making it look like you are in a different country.
Access websites and services securely
The new lightweight VPN extension for Firefox will help you access your favorite sites safely, even if they don’t use the HTTPS protocol. Many top websites, including BBC, CNN and IMDb, still don’t offer HTTPS encryption, which means that eavesdroppers can see what you click or read while browsing those sites. When you switch on the NordVPN extension, it encrypts your Internet traffic so that you can be know for sure that you’re surfing securely and privately.
Protect your data from IP leaks
Even if you use a VPN, there’s a chance to experience WebRTC leaks in your browser that may still disclose your real IP address. That is inconvenient, to say the least, having in mind that sensitive data such as your current location may be visible to all sorts of snoopers and crooks. The NordVPN extension allows disabling the default WebRTC protocol used in Firefox, this way making sure that your online identity always stays hidden, no matter what.
Avoid ads and malware
The CyberSec feature is also available in the NordVPN extension for Firefox. When enabled, it keeps you safe from malware and other cyber threats waiting to infect your device. Additionally, it stops those maddening pop-ups, auto-play ads and other advertisement material you never want to see again.
How to get NordVPN for your Firefox browser
You can download our VPN extension from the Firefox Add-ons page. Once you do that, it will turn up next to your other Firefox extensions so you can find it and connect easily. The second you do that, it instantly encrypts your browsing data and hides your IP address, which means that your Internet activity becomes invisible to any third-party snoopers.
When you open the NordVPN proxy extension, click “Choose location” and browse the country list to pick out the destination you prefer. Alternatively, if you don’t have any specific needs, simply click “Auto connect” and let our special algorithm select the best option for you based on distance, server load and other specifications.
The NordVPN Firefox extension encrypts your HTTP traffic with the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which is widely employed to add security to users’ internet communications. With the extension enabled, nobody can follow your online activity or intercept your sensitive data, including ISPs, governments or cybercriminals.
Now that your information is safely encrypted and online identity hidden, you can enjoy secure and private Internet browsing. Feels good, doesn’t it?
Please note that this extension is only available for Mozilla Firefox users. If you wish to secure your other devices, you can download the full NordVPN version for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS under the same subscription. You can also download a VPN extension for Google Chrome.
