You have not configured the service to use a proper certificate (it's using a default one, which is not trusted by other computers).

This usually involves getting a certificate for the correct name via Let's Encrypt (using certbot for instance), then you update configuration of your service to use the correct certificate files and then usually you restart the service so it picks up the correct certificate.

If none of this makes sense to you it's worth doing some research to get up to speed on the topic, or get someone else to do it for you.
