Generally not - as long as the server is dishing out something over https,
the server will be signed with a certificate that is going to be in the
local OS's set of trusted root certificates (particularly if this is
provided by Google).  It is true that a die-hard self OS builder can
totally build their own trusted set of roots, but that's going beyond.  (It
is possible to buy/procure very cheap certificates that come from
Certificate Authorities that are generally not popular or well known enough
to be in the stock set of Microsoft/OS X/Ubuntu trusted roots, but this is
totally avoidable.)
