Security Status of Virgin media change router settings address

I am trying to change my router and wifi passwords. When I enter my IP address from my router into my browsers address my browser (which is Microsoft Edge, but Chrome says the same) says the site is not secure !

Does anyone else have this problem. I am not sure if my browsers are being over protective or if this is not properly secured by virgin media. I dont want to change my passwords if someone can hack into my passwords etc,  and this could be a problem for other Virgin Media customers.

Re: Security Status of Virgin media change router settings address

its safe. you are accessing a local device on your local network. You can't secure such devices with signed SSL

Re: Security Status of Virgin media change router settings address

Nothing to worry about.  The settings page that you access via 192.168.0.1 is entirely within your local network.  Your browser is giving you the warning as it isn't a Https address, but in this case that is not a security issue as you are accessing a local page on your Hub.
