By default, electrum wallets are randomly connected to a set of Electrum servers. From a privacy perspective, this is not a good thing because it discloses your wallet address and balance to unknown third parties. And unfortunately, many public Electrum servers are run by individuals or groups of blockchain analytics companies or worse. Therefore, if you are using an Electrum wallet, it is generally recommended that you run your own Electrum server and then connect the wallet to that server.
