SSL Root Certificates?
#1
I just installed python 3.7.4 for Mac OS X and it's asking me if I want to download a SSL Root Certificate. It doesn't seem to be required so I'm not sure what the benefit of downloading it is.

Here's the text exactly,
"One more thing: to verify the identity of secure network connections, this Python needs a set of SSL root certificates. You can download and install a current curated set from the Certifi project by double-clicking on the Install Certificates icon in the Finder window. See the ReadMe file for more information."

I'm new to programming and I have no idea what any of this means. Should I install it an why?

Why does it matter where I downloaded it from? I downloaded the installer from python.org anyway. It still asked me.
