Is yacy indexing every webpage i visit in my webbroswer?
I found some information that seems like that is the case, but it's not much information and I had to shut down yacy until I know more about this.
I did not find any setting to toggle this if it is acutally happening..

Hi crawl3r!

Will running YaCy jeopardize my privacy?

YaCy respects user privacy. All password- or cookies-protected pages are excluded from indexing. Additionally, pages loaded using GET or POST parameters are not indexed by default. Thus, only publicly accessible, non-password-protected pages will be indexed.

For a detailed explanation on the technique: How YaCy protects your privacy wrt to personalized pages.

Plus, the websites you open in your web browser are only getting indexed, if yacy is set as proxy in the network configuration of your browser.
