BitDefender does not recognize my home wifi WPA2 secured network as secure

I keep getting BitDefender pop-ups on laptop when connected to my secured Wifi network. Where is the setting to disable these annoying pop-ups?

I'm using 802.11ac with WPA2-Personal Security, so this is NOT an 'unsafe' Wi-Fi network. I personally find this notification insulting.

    I installed these settings, no unnecessary notifications.

    1. The main antivirus window -> settings -> basic -> special offers -> off.

    2. The main antivirus window -> settings -> basic -> recommendation notifications -> off.

    3. The main antivirus window -> tools -> profiles -> automatically activate profile -> off.

    4. Antivirus main window -> tools -> profiles -> public Wi-Fi profile -> enabled.

    5. The main antivirus window -> firewall -> network adapters -> public.

    Also in the properties of your wireless network, set the encryption type to - AES

    Funny, that this issue also seems to be with Bitderfender Total Security in 2024!

    I am using WPA3 in one network and WPA2 in another network (AES) - and it still advises to change to secure Settings…?☹️
