Mozilla is planning to offer a subscription service inside of Firefox, via that users will get access to “premium” features like a VPN service or cloud storage. However, this is not clear what this service is going to offer, but according to Mozilla CEO Chris Beard that both a VPN service and cloud storage will be available for users in the service. Mozilla plans to start offering subscriptions in October.
Paid Subscription Service is Coming to Firefox
There are no more details about the service and there is confusion too that if this will be a single subscription service that offers multiple features, or if there will be separate subscription services. However, one subscription option is confirmed for now.
The purpose behind the rollout of this feature is to develop “diverse sources of revenue”.
Dave Camp, senior vice president of Firefox, said in a statement:
“A high-performing, free and private-by-default Firefox browser will continue to be central to our core service offerings. Camp said that Firefox can serve users who are interested in premium features “without compromising the development and reach of the existing products and services.”
Mozilla has made it clear that it is not going to charge for any existing Firefox features and users can use them free of any cost.
