Does BitDefender use SaferPass?

As of yesterday, every time I open a browser I get this message:

Suspicious connection blocked


Online Threat Prevention

msedge.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

It happens every time I open both Chrome and Edge.

I eventually realized I get the blocked connection message at the moment the browser creates the page to enter the master password for BitDefender Password Manager.

A system virus scan with BitDefender antivirus comes up clean.

So either BitDefender Password Manager is actually SaferPass, or else I have a weird trojan/virus, or maybe something else.

Which is it?

    Update: this was a false detection that has now been removed. The notification should no longer be displayed.
