Security question

I am using version 7.4.4 and with its default settings,with a one-hop path.Didn’t changed any settings.Do I have to change the settings if I want to be an exit relay?What are the default settings concerning this?Asking because here is an article that mentions it some security risk.

Hi,

Running Tribler with its default settings should not expose you to the risk of running an exit node. The exit node functionality is disabled by default. You can toggle to become an exit node in the settings menu. Being an exit node, however, is most likely a risky setting as we also point out in the settings menu. Please proceed with extreme care if you are willing to be an exit node for other users.
