What is a PureVPN Browser Extension?

The PureVPN browser extension is one of the lightest and simplest ways to connect your web browser – whether it be Chrome, Firefox, or Edge – to a proxy server. And with the flick of a switch, you can easily turn the plugin on and off as you please while you’re browsing the web. However, there is one thing to take note of: The extension only protects your web browser and nothing else on your device. This means that other apps, games, and tools will still use a direct, unencrypted internet connection. If you want to protect them, you’ll need to install the native PureVPN app. Click this 👉 link to download the PureVPN app now.

For what purpose can it be used for?

PureVPN’s Firefox extension works wonders when it comes to unblocking all the popular streaming services and online channels. Not only does it provide a one-click solution to all your streaming needs, it also gives you the ultimate online anonymity, allowing you to remain safe from ISP throttling so that you can always enjoy unlimited bandwidth. Say goodbye to slow streaming speed of “blocked content” error messages with the PureVPN browser extension for Firefox.
