After update to iOS 14.0.1 my iphone says "WPS/WPA2 (TKIP) is not considered safe"

At home we have 4 iphones, 2 macs, one (PC) laptop and a tablet and also use wifi for NowTV.
3 of us have recently updated our iphones to iOS 14.0.1 When we go to Settings/Wifi it now shows "Weak Security" I am now being told to configure my Virginmedia router to use WPA2 (AES) or WPA3 security type. The lap top and tablet show no change. Could this be just any apple thing? If I change the security on my router for the iphones will it affect how my other devices connect to the home wifi?

Can anyone offer any plain/simply thoughts on how best to attend to this issue?

Many thanks in advance

Re: After update to iOS 14.0.1 my iphone says "WPS/WPA2 (TKIP) is not considered safe"

Hello Paula, here's an answer that came through that put my mind at rest, and hopefully well yors too..The larger type first paragraph was enough for me...

If you’ve recently upgraded your iPhone to iOS 14 and you have a Virgin Media Hub 3, or our WiFi Boosters, you may have noticed a message warning of weak security on your WiFi connection. It’s nothing to worry about and your WiFi is still perfectly secure. WiFi security standards are constantly being updated in line with new product and software releases and over time, stronger standards emerge.

If you have a Hub 3 or an older model, or our WiFi Boosters, your WiFi security defaults to WPA-PSK’ ‘WPA2-PSK and it’s the older WPA-PSK standard that generates the message. If you’d like to remove the message from your device, you can update your hub or booster's security settings to WPA2-PSK, just follow these steps:

Hub 3

  • Login to your hub via 192.168.0.1
  • Enter your admin name and password (this is printed on a sticker on the hub if you haven’t changed the password)
  • Once logged in, go to Advanced settings  > Wireless > Security
  • Click on the dropdown next to Security and change it to WPA2-PSK (note you’ll need to do this for both the 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz network if you’ve separated these)
  • Once you hit save the hub will refresh and when it reconnects the WiFi you should find the message has disappeared

WiFi Boosters

  • Connect a laptop to your Booster using an Ethernet cable.
  • Login to the Booster at http://virginmedia-vmp from a web browser. Note, this page can only be found when connected to the Booster
  • Enter the Settings Password (this is printed on the back of the Booster)
  • Once logged in, go to Wireless settings > Security
  • Under 2.4Ghz Wireless security settings, check Security
  • If 'Security' is not 'WPA2-PSK', then drop down and select 'WPA2-PSK' (note you’ll need to do this for both the 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz network if you’ve separated these)
  • Remember to click Accept Changes when done
