"Openvpn" ideas and thoughts

Hello everyone,
I was wondering what are your thoughts on (openvpn)? Since I don’t use a “vpn”. I was wondering how good/bad the idea would be to use “openvpn”. I do believe a vpn would be great to have BUT I really don’t"trust" the vpn’s that are offered out there as they really are not under your full control. So I guess my only option is “openvpn”…
-is it safe to use
-how could one set it up on/in Qubes-OS…my thoughts… setup a “appvm” that runs (openvpn) as the link to internet/Tor network and have my needed apps,browsers go through the (openvpn).any ideas would be great…
-how would whonix work/play with this
-do I really need to use (open on) since I run qubes-os…

Any input would be greatly appreciated…

Thank you all

See this guide:

This discussion is a bit outside of the Qubes topic. So I would defer you to other forums like https://forum.privacytools.io/. Or, when you’ve been using this forum for long we also a private category #all-around-qubes for non-qubes specific things (but still somehow related).

Thank you for the information, will do
