Is a website where other members can see if I look them up or are my searches confidential?

I am looking up my estranged father's family just curious about them. I was several months old when he left and have an adopted step-father. I have no desire to be contacted by my bio-father or his family and that is why I did not do the DNA kit. However, if I just look at other family trees on Ancestry and glanced at one person's profile (an apparent half-sibling) can they see I viewed them or will they have no way to since I did not message them?


I am a little worried now that I looked.

    You can research without the people involved knowing, but living people are extremely difficult to locate.
