Questionget_string memory leak? Pin

I am taking Harvard's CS50 class. We are learning C.

They use their own library where you include cs50.h.

There is a function called get_string that returns a string.

I think it has a memory leak.

I think this is the source code:

https://github.com/cs50/libcs50/blob/main/src/cs50.c

They are saying stuff like:

string name = get_string("What is your name?");

Then, they never call free on the memory in main.

Anyone know how the memory gets freed or if it is a leak?

Thanks.
