lens privacy feature does not work on all lenses
In the system settings privacy area check the box to not return results from internet searches
Install unity-lens-github from the extras repo
Observe a fully functional github searching lens.
By default lenses don't do anything with the privacy flag. They have to be specially coded to look for it, and it is undocumented. There are lenses getting into the distribution that don't respect the flag.
Maybe the ARB should check lenses observe the setting before allowing them into extras.
Maybe the setting should be replaced with a more functional alternative that doesn't require lenses to be modified - so it won't send them global-
