*** NOTE: If you already have our Windows or Mac app installed and working, you DO NOT need this extension. ***

This article will instruct you how to download, login, and configure the VirtualShield extension for your Mozilla Firefox browser. This tutorial works with Firefox on both macOS, Windows, and Linux computers. There is also an animation at the end of this article demonstrating this installation process.

  1. Open Firefox. If you don't have it installed, you'll need to download install it from the main Firefox website (click here).

  2. Once you have Firefox open, click this link to begin the VirutalShield extension installation process:

    IMPORTANT: Make sure you open this link inside of Firefox. If you are not in Firefox right now, copy and paste the link into your Firefox browser.

  3. Firefox may prompt you asking for permission to add the extension. Click the "Allow" button.
