AddData widget shapefile without projection file ".prj"

Hello!

Personally, when using the AddData widget, I realized that it does not require the ".prj" file, which defines the projection in which the shapefile was generated (including Robert Scheitlin, GISP informed me that it is not mandatory). Based on this, users have questioned me, how this shapefile import is performed. Our default is SIRGAS_2000, but if the shapefile was generated for example in WGS, what will the pattern look like? Does the sharing service automatically convert to the default where the system map is?

Thank you!
Gilberto.
