I don't have knowledge into programming/cybersecurity so I stumbled upon this site and figured I'd ask a quick question. I worked for about 3 years at company and left as of last week. I don't know how I remembered this, but I recall installing a "root certificate" on my phone and laptop. Long story short, I was able to find it (mac laptop) and it says "self-signed root certificate". I may be wrong, but I believe this was installed when either connecting to their internet or going onto the company email server.
I don't know if i need to put the details of the certificate, but long story short. Does this mean that all network traffic (when not connected to the company wifi) was being monitored? I went ahead and deleted the certificate.
I apologize if this isn't the place to post this question, or if I'm just completely wrong in my thinking. Thanks in advance
