Suddenly received privacy warning on home WiFi network

I use an IOS xr . It suddenly suggested that I disconnect from the WiFi due to a privacy warning. When looking at my WiFi on settings, under the network that’s used says “privacy warning” in small letters.

When you click on the network for more details, it the warning explains that

“This network is blocking encrypted DNS traffic. The names of websites and other servers your device accesses on this network may be monitored and recorded by other devices on this network.”

My question is, what does this mean and why did it happen?? What could be tracked and how ? The network is locked and has a long, complex password is this something to be worried about?

Also:

My network was running slow when on the WiFi so I’m currently using cellular data. So is another household member. About 5 minutes later after posting this, the other member is back on the WiFi with no problems. I’m still skeptical
