Security

When I tried to set up my wi-fi socket range extender with browser on Google it would not connect to website ? Because ip address 192.168.0.1 is not secure?

Re: Security

192.168.0.1 isn't an external website so it is secure.

No public Certificate Authority (CA) will issue a certificate for a private IP address, such as the 192.168.x.x blocks.

Because of that, they won't be recognised as HTTTPS  secure

Re: Security

CA can't assign HTTPS certs to IP addresses at all. it HAS to be a domain name
