MozWire GitHub All Releases GitHub Workflow Status (branch)

MozWire is an unofficial cross-platform client for MozillaVPN, finally giving Linux, macOS, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and others (all platforms supporting the WireGuard protocol) users access to this VPN provider. MozWire also supports Windows.


  • Support for multihop servers (Not available on official clients)
  • Select individual servers (as opposed to being limited to choosing cities) (Not available on official clients)
  • Select custom remote port, bypassing firewalls (Not available on official clients)
  • Support for other operating systems (Not available on official clients)
  • Use "native" WireGuard clients with more customizability (Not available on official clients)
  • Tunnel only IPv6 traffic (Not available on official clients)
  • Supports kill switch
  • Works with socks5 multihop


Using pre-built binaries from the CI (Linux, macOS and Windows) (Recommended)

Linux, macOS and Windows binaries are available on the release page. These binaries are built by GitHub Actions CI.

Using the AUR for Arch Linux users

The package name is mozwire and can be installed using your favourite AUR helper:

yay -S mozwire

Using Nix

mozwire is now packaged in nixpkgs, make sure your nixpkgs-unstable channel is up to date (nix-channel --update nixpkgs-unstable), then run

nix-env -i MozWire

Using cargo install


cargo install mozwire

From git

cargo install --git --branch trunk


git clone
cd MozWire
cargo build


mozwire relay save to generate a WireGuard configuration. --help to get help on a subcommand, e.g. mozwire relay --help, mozwire relay save --help.


Output configuration for all servers into the /etc/wireguard directory.

mozwire relay save -o /etc/wireguard -n 0

Use MOZ_TOKEN to "cache" the token instead of specifying it each time with --token or log in each time.

export MOZ_TOKEN=$(mozwire --print-token) # save the token in the MOZ_TOKEN environment variable
mozwire .... # mozwire commands can be run without having to log in

    -h, --help           Prints help information
        --no-browser     By default, mozwire will open the login page in a
                         browser, this option prevents mozwire a browser page
                         from being opened.
        --print-token    Print the token used to query the Mozilla API, so that
                         it can be reused with --token, without having to sign
                         in each time.
    -V, --version        Prints version information

        --token <token>    The token used to communicate with the Mozilla API.
                           If unspecified, a web page will be opened to retrieve
                           the token. the MOZ_TOKEN environment variable can
                           also be used instead. [env: MOZ_TOKEN=]

    device    Add, remove and list devices. To connect to MozillaVPN, a
              device needs to be on the list.
    help      Prints this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)
    relay     List available relays (VPN Servers) and save WireGuard
              configurations for these.

To query MozillaVPN, mozwire requires a token, specified with --token. If it is
left unspecified, mozwire will generate a token by opening a login page, the
token generated can be printed using --print-token, so that it can be reused. To
generate a WireGuard configuration use `mozwire relay save`.
