The Firefox Private Network Beta is a browser extension that protects your browsing activity within Firefox. It encrypts the websites you visit in Firefox desktop. This stops eavesdroppers on open, public Wi-Fi from spying on your browsing activity, protects your browsing history from internet service providers so that they can’t collect or sell it and it hides your locations from websites and data collectors that profile you to target ads.
