Text editor spelling check privacy

Hello there, if I forgot to turn off spell check in my gnome text editor, does it means that all my text and passwords was fell into the hands of unknown people?

Hi @s1mple , welcome to the community.

From what I know, all spell check in gnome-text-editor (and most other editors like vim/emacs) happens offline, as in, there are dictionaries installed in your system that are used to do it. No information is sent anywhere.
