It's relatively painless to set up.
The steps generally will be:

Install Open VPN.

Download configs (.ovpn files) from your vpn provider based on where you want to connect. (protonvpn.com as a free option)

Import the .ovpn file(s). (as described in the link below)

Edit the file created by the import, so as to include your vpn login credentials (different from your vpn's website login creds.)

**Then you can just edit any network connection in Advanced Network Connections GUI to require one of the vpn files you just imported (under the General Tab)  **Instead of doing #4. & #5. in the link below**!

This is the best guide for mobian users:
https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php...orking#vpn

Sidenote:
Advanced Network Conn. does not scale very well. 
use:
Code:
wlr-randr --output DSI-1 --scale 1

and/or
Code:
wlr-randr --output DSI-1 --scale 2

to scale your display if the app doesn't scale easily. (or do step #4&#5 in the wiki and skip using Advanced Network Conns.. app all together).

Cheers!

If you want more specific instructions than the ones provided above you'll have to be more specific about your requirements. What sort of VPN and for what purpose? For example I use wireguard to connect to my home network when I'm out, which has a very different configuration process to using OpenVPN to connect to a commercial provider.

Which is best depends on what you're trying to do, which is why I asked for details. You are making it difficult for people to help you.

Obviously the most secure in the year 1984..
Please link some good guide. Thanks! I advocate privacy as a human right.
A vpn is fine. I might use tor also just because companies and others wants everyones data...
What's best? Openvpn or wireguard? Which is the most secure of them two when it comes to a private vpn? With the word best i meant most secure of-course.. we are discussing a vpn..

I did solve this on my own last time... So it worked good, and the VPN is always on.
