You can always hide your computers in your account page/preferences/Einstein@home preferences
But this is a scientific community and nobody is spying anybody else. If you are afraid, better not to join.

Hi eng.negaTive, both

Hi eng.negaTive,

both BOINC and Einstein@Home software is open source, so you can always check, what your computer is doing. Or at least it is most unlikely, that they contain spyware of any sort, somebody would have noticed.
