ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN has been heralded as one of the best VPN extensions for Firefox, with its privacy-friendly logging setting and the large number of features it contains. It has servers in a whopping 94 countries, and if you’re looking for a good VPN to use streaming services, this extension works with 10 Netflix regions too. The downsides to this is that the full extension access requires a pricey payment, and you won’t be able to experience it on a free budget since it’ll only be a trial.

Pros:

  • Privacy-friendly logging
  • Large number of features
  • Servers in 94 countries

Cons:

  • Doesn’t offer Ad & Tracker blocker
  • Free experience only a trial

NordVPN

You might’ve heard of NordVPN from several youtubers and podcasts, and there’s good reason. It has extremely high VPN speeds so you won’t waste any time loading webpages as you use it, and if you run into any issues in your user experience, you’ll have 24/7 live support which responds quickly and will work with you to resolve them. Privacy is also valued with their zero-logs policy. Streaming services may not be reliable through this service though, and the free experience is only a trial- there are lots of discounts floating around which might cut down the cost!

Pros:

  • Fast VPN speeds
  • 24/7 live support
  • Zero-logs policy

Cons:

  • Paypal not accessible as payment
  • Unreliable with Netflix
  • Free experience only a trial

CyberGhost

CyberGhost is free to install and easy to use for the newest of VPN users. It’ll protect your privacy by encrypting the outgoing data from your session the moment it leaves your device; best of all, there’s no data limit to using it! However, it’s a little limited in usage since it’s only available in four locations and it won’t provide too many additional security features. Otherwise, it’s perfect if you’re looking to have an encrypted browsing experience that also lets you access streaming services to watch shows and movies you can’t find in your own country.

Pros:

  • Encrypts data at device level
  • Easy to use
  • No data limit

Cons:

  • Only available in four locations
  • No additional security

Hotspot Shield

Hotspot Shield is a Firefox VPN extension that has very fast speeds both locally and on a global level, and it’ll optimise your user experience with its efficient adblocker, tracker blocker, and malware blocker. On top of this, you’ll also have fully encrypted connections as you use the internet and leak protection. If you’re a non-US resident, this might not be for you, since the only free server location is in the US, and there’s a daily data limit of 500mb.

Pros:

  • Fast VPN speeds
  • Ad, tracker, malware blocker
  • Fully encrypted connections

Cons:

  • Only one free server location
  • 500MB daily limit

Windscribe

Windscribe is one of the lighter VPNs on this list, lacking some of the more essential security features such as VPN encryption but still having a tracker, malware and cookie blocker. Its focus on letting you watch any streaming service in any location is great, allowing you to unblock a large range of streaming services. You can also use a GPS geo-spoofer feature. Overall, Windscribe is excellent for streaming and light browsing, all within a 1GB monthly limit though, so keep on top of how much internet you’re using when on the free version.

Pros:

  • Unblocks large variety of streaming services
  • Tracker, malware, cookie blocker
  • GPS geo-spoofer available

Cons:

  • No VPN encryption
  • 1GB monthly data limit

Surfshark

Surfshark has the ability to give you unlimited connections going all at once from multiple devices, all while maintaining high internet speeds. The user interface is clean, simple, and most importantly easy to use! With over 3200 servers in 100 countries, you can be sure you’ll find one close to you for higher quality internet usage. However, all these features are only part of the free trial, and you’ll have to pay before being able to use it beyond that. 

Pros:

  • Unlimited simultaneous connections
  • Easy to use
  • Fast VPN speeds

Cons:

  • Free experience is only a trial

AtlasVPN

AtlasVPN is another great VPN extension on Firefox for unblocking most streaming services. It has additional security features, including a whopping military-grade cipher for traffic encryption, meaning your data will be nice and safe while you browse, stream things, and play games. It lets you enjoy unlimited connections at the same time. Sadly, this all comes at the cost of a paywall for you being able to access some of the features, and there’s only a small pool of servers available.

Pros:

  • Unblocks large number of streaming services
  • Additional security features
  • Unlimited simultaneous connections

Cons:

  • Small pool of servers
  • Some features behind paywall

PureVPN

PureVPN offers one of the largest pools of servers out of VPN extensions. Because of this, you’ll have the helpful little option to customise your region selection to any number of regions when you’re using it. As you use it globally to stream the trending shows on Netflix, PureVPN ensures it doesn’t collect any user-related information. The existing subscription is extremely affordable and independent firms continuously audit this platform to make sure that it’s keeping to any and every standard.

Pros:

  • Large number of servers
  • Customisable region selection
  • Doesn’t collect any user-related information

Cons:

  • Speed and consistency issues

IvacyVPN

Ivacy VPN is a VPN extension that unblocks a large number of servers along with a large number of streaming services. Of course this means you’ll get global coverage. Ivacy VPN’s unique selling point is a split tunnelling feature, meaning you as the user will have more control over where your traffic goes when visiting certain websites. It also has the option for safeguarding you against leaks while you browse. However, the free experience here will only be a trial, and some users say the VPN speed is not as high as it could be.

Pros:

  • Unblocks large number of streaming services
  • Large number of servers
  • High level of encryption

Cons:

  • Free experience is a trial
  • Speed and consistency issues

ProtonVPN

Proton VPN is an extension that has plenty of additional security features on top of the basics. It prides itself on not logging your data as you use it to browse and stream, and thankfully you’ll be able to do both at your own pace since there’s no data limit when you use it. Some features will be unfortunately locked behind a paywall, and there may be some consistency issues in using its services, but overall Proton VPN is great for those on a budget.

Pros:

  • Additional security features
  • No-logs VPN
  • Unlimited data

Cons:

  • Some features behind paywall
  • Speed and consistency issues
