Insecure network detected, says Bitdefender

Whenever I make a wifi connection  on my laptop my virus software, Bitdefender, tells me it has detected an insecure network and asks me to make a connection via VPN. I am loathe to do this because it requires a subscription. Plus, surely it is unnecessary? I use the password key provided by BT on my router and my network is set to private.

I don't understand. Is my network insecure? Are there problems? Or is this Bitdefender just trying to sell me a subscription to something I don't need? If so, then that's very shoddy business practice to tell you something is insecure when it's not.

Re: Insecure network detected, says Bitdefender

It sounds like Bitdefender is trying to persuade you to buy a subscription.

If you are connected to your BT Home hub, using the wireless password on the home hub, then your connection to the Internet is secure.

Perhaps you are visiting a website that is insecure, and that is why you are getting the warning?

Re: Insecure network detected, says Bitdefender

are you connecting to BTWIFI and not your home wireless connection?
