If one uses the "Fraudulent sites" option in Safari, does Apple or Google know each and every website you visit?




In other words, does a database download to your computer and the websites you visit are checked against it locally.  Or, does every website you visit get reported and checked against an external database at Google or Apple, etc.?


If it's the latter, I think this has far too much potential for privacy abuse.  I've searched around for information on this, but have run into dead ends.  Is there an expert here and/or someone who has information on just specially how the " "Fraudulent sites" option in Safari works in this regard?
