freerad in shadow group

Why am I finding ‘freerad’ assigned to the shadow group? Is this safe? Would it be good to remove it? What harm could it cause to remove it?

Hi @yodatron

Don’t worry about “freerad” in the shadow group. Trust in our system, which is built on security and privacy. We’ve considered this for sure.

Cheers

Not trying to be obtuse or argumentative, but, ‘trust in our system’ when I see something that is not normal in other systems I’ve used and that other forums, blogs say should not be there; ie. ‘names in shadow group’ is not comforting…blindly trusting in something is what causes security issues…I want to understand this, that helps me grow as a potential infosec worker or just plain security researcher.

that’s your opinion
