In your opinion, thinking about privacy, where NordVPN or other VPN application should be installed?
or in the AppVMs?
The idea is to make all traffic that uses USB Wifi Dongle pass throw VPN.
In case of two USB Wifi Dongle, the #1 should use NordVPN and #2 should use, for example, protonvpn.
Qubes provides security through
compartmentalization. Following this principle, you achieve the highest security by separating everything.
Therefore, a dedicated VPN qube is preferable:

Although setting up a VPN connection is not by itself Qubes specific, Qubes includes a number of tools that can make the client-side setup of your VPN more versatile and secure. This document is a Qubes-specific outline for choosing the type of VM to use, and shows how to prepare a ProxyVM for either NetworkManager or a set of fail-safe VPN scripts.
Please refer to your guest OS and VPN service documentation when considering the specific steps and parameters for your connection(s); The relevant documentation for the Qubes default guest OS (Fedora) is [Establishing a VPN Connection.](https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/23/html/Networking_Guide/sec-Establishing_a_VPN_Connection.html)
The simplest case is to set up a VPN connection using the NetworkManager service inside your NetVM. Because the NetworkManager service is already started, you are ready to set up your VPN connection. However this has some disadvantages:
- You have to place (and probably save) your VPN credentials inside the NetVM, which is directly connected to the outside world
- All your AppVMs which are connected to the NetVM will be connected to the VPN (by default)
Did you even bother to read the official documentation?

Ctrl+f for “How to set up a ProxyVM as a VPN Gateway”
next time search the official documentation
stop using commercial vpns and create your own
Yes, I have read Documentation.
Please, learn how to read and interpret texts and after that read my post again to note that I’m raising a discussion and asking opinions.
PS: The post is in General Discussion sector, not in User Support.
That’s a interest point of view.
Maybe for a private investigator use qubes for different profiles and VPN installed in a TemplateVM should be an usage way.
