I assume you were referring to an SSL warning you saw. If so, the error you were seeing was actually quite normal. Rather, it's a misguided warning more than anything, and only you will see it when logged in.
When you connect to your Dashboard over an HTTPS connection, we use an SSL certificate to encrypt your connection. SSL certificates need to be signed to a specific domain, and we can't provide certificates for every mapped domain, so our certificate is signed for WordPress.com.
When you connect to your Dashboard via your own domain but your security software sees a certificate signed to http://wordpress.com/ it's altering you that WordPress.com may be intercepting your connection, which of course is perfectly fine.
Most security systems like this should have a way to add a permanent exception so you will never see the warning again in this instance.
Hi, thanks for your response. I received a email alert from google crawl team that my site, https://whitelineninteriors.net/
, does not match any of the "Subject Names" in your SSL certificate, which were .wordpress.com and wordpress.com. Does this have to do with how I set up the domain verification address? Should it be http://whitelineninteriors.wordpress.com?
oops left this out... https

Yes, that's a similarly misguided warning. It won't affect anything.
Ok Great, thanks so much. Have a great day!! :)
