That message sounds a bit dodgy to me, especially as it recommends you using their suggested browser for your 'safety'.
No doubt our resident wizard Kat will pop in and suggest some actions.

What network are you connected to? Your own ISP?

I wouldn't worry. That looks more like a marketing gimmick from Bitdefender ,

the warning says you are connecting to a secure network but with a weak password.  Wifi passwords on the computer are stored in an easily readable format , so anything can read them
It really looks like a marketing exercise

But if you are using W10 then Windows sometimes defaults to a "public" network instead of a "private" network. This causes BD to freak out
see https://tinkertry.com/how-to-change-windows-10-network-type-from-public-to-private  for instructions to change to private
