I really like how I can sync to the same account from different devices. On my work computer I was using the desktop app with the android app to go. But my company switched up their security setup to include SSL interception. Installing a cert in Windows fixes most browser based issues. However many desktop apps are broken, including Anki.
There are at least three ways to handle this. You could check the Windows trusted list. Or add a network setting to specify the cert. Or the setting could ignore the cert errors - sounds insecure but is actually not a big deal.
