Certificates validate that a website (for example) is actually who they claim to be.

They have to be created by an official "certificate authority" to have any meaning.

 

A self-signed certificate is one that was not created by a proper authority and is thus not trustworthy.

There are no self-signed certificates used by Nexus Mods.

 

What the error message means then is that either

a) your internet traffic is being redirected/hijacked

b) you have a misconfigured VPN/Proxy/Firewall

c) you have a really incredibly stupid Anti-Virus

or

d) your system configuration regarding certificate authorities is messed up.

 

None of these are problems we can fix in Vortex, for all we know you probably have a serious security issue on your system.

Hey so i have been trying to loging into vortex but my API is not working when it ask for it. Even when I copy or make new API, it still fails to log me in. Here's something that might help: 

 

Error: self signed certificate in certificate chain
    at TLSSocket.onConnectSecure (_tls_wrap.js:1049:34)
    at TLSSocket.emit (events.js:182:13)
    at TLSSocket._finishInit (_tls_wrap.js:631:8)

I should check the Wiki...

This comes up often enough, it certainly belongs there.

And we can't beat Tannin's explanation.
