Tools and GUI for MozillaVPN.

Project description

MozVPN Documentation Status

MozVPN is an alternative CLI and GUI client for MozillaVPN.

When MozillaVPN showed up in May 2021 Mozilla published clients for Ubuntu Linux only, which didn’t run on my OpenSuse machine. This was the motivation to implement this alternative client.

Short Usage

The following instructions assume that everything is installed and setup (incl. wireguard and wireguard-tools) and you have a subscription for MozillaVPN. For details see the complete documentation on

Graphical User Interface (GUI)

To start the GUI for mozvpn just run:

$ mozvpn gui
(or alternatively)
$ xmozvpn

A window should open and allow you to select the desired VPN server endpoint from a choice of cities in various countries. Then just click the connect button, and you should have a running VPN.

Command Line Interface (CLI)

The command line interface can be used to connect or disconnect to MozillaVPN from a linux or windows shell. Also the current status of the connection can be obtained.


$ mozvpn status
Not connected
$ mozpvn up de4-wireguard   # must match files in /etc/wireguard/*.conf
Connected to: de4-wireguard
$ mozvpn status
Connected to: de4-wireguard
$ mozpvn down de4-wireguard
Disconnected from: de4-wireguard
$ mozvpn status
Not connected
