Browser IP address for Router says Insecure

Just wanted to double check things. When I use the router's IP address to sign in on a browser it says the connection is insecure. Should I be concerned?

On you private [W]LAN http is fine, even with a state of the art https implementation it's not possible in a home environment - lack of a local DNS, lack of a domain, and finally lack of a certificate signed by a trusted certificate authority - to have a trusted "tag" on the modern Web browsers.

Okay, thanks for the reply. I thought so but, just wanted to be sure as I, for some reason never noticed that message.

Thanks again!
