Paid Version of Firefox Coming Later This Year

According to a report, The Mozilla Foundation is working on a new premium version of the Firefox browser.

In an interview with German media site T3N, the CEO of Mozilla, Chris Beard said there will be a paid tier of Firefox available in October this year.

The paid version of Firefox will likely include a VPN, secure cloud storage, and more subscription-type services.

“We will probably launch some new services first and then we will think carefully about which model makes the most sense while ensuring the best user safety,” said Beard. “Firefox and many security features and services, like ETP [Enhanced Tracking Protection], will still be free, that’s for sure.”

Mozilla is already experimenting VPN services with ProtonVPN for some users with a subscription of $10 a month, but Beard says they also want to offer free VPN services for non-paying Firefox users.

After the interview with Beard was published, The Next Web received a statement from Firefox’s senior vice president, Dave Camp saying that they are already developing paid services.

We were founded on the belief that the internet should be open and accessible to all. A high-performing, free and private-by-default Firefox browser will continue to be central to our core service offerings. We also recognize that there are consumers who want access to premium offerings, and we can serve those users too without compromising the development and reach of the existing products and services that Firefox users know and love.
