Why do I see "Network may be monitored" after installing a private CA certificate on a device?

Samsung devices running Android 4.4 or higher.
Google added this network monitoring warning as part of the Android KitKat (4.4) security enhancements. This warning indicates that a device has at least one user-installed certificate, which could be used by malware to monitor encrypted network traffic.
Currently, there is no method to prevent this warning message from displaying, and there are no future development plans to change this.
To view user certificates installed on your device (Android 8.0), go to: Settings > Lock Screen andSecurity > Other Security Settings > User. You will see a list of the certificates installed in this menu. If you click the name of a certificate, you can view more details about it and remove it, if necessary.
