NordVPN makes it easy for you to connect on the go using its Firefox extension. Downloading and adding NordVPN to Firefox is remarkably simple and takes less than a minute. However, keep in mind that NordVPN's extensions and apps are not the same, as extensions come with limited features.

More precisely, the NordVPN Firefox extension is great for bypassing geo-blocks and protecting your privacy within the browser. However, you won't be able to switch between protocols, access specialized servers, or use a kill switch. For that, you'll need to use NordVPN's native application.

In this article, you'll learn how to set up the NordVPN Firefox extension with detailed, step-by-step instructions.

How to Set Up NordVPN Firefox Extension

To set up NordVPN on Firefox, you need to sign up, download its extension, and log in. The entire procedure should not take more than a few minutes. Here's what you need to do:

Final Thoughts

NordVPN's Firefox extension is fast, lightweight, and very quick to set up. However, remember that it will only secure your browser activities. If you want protection across all apps connected to the Web on your device, you should download its native client on your computer.

Since NordVPN allows up to 10 simultaneous connections, you should download and set up NordVPN on all the devices in your household so that you can protect them at once. In our guide, we've covered dozens of devices and platforms, showing you how to take full advantage of your subscription.
