Using my Onion address versus ip address when connecting Sparrow or Spector Desktop

Apologies if this is a noob question, but I was just wondering why the recommended set up for Spector Desktop and Sparrow wallets suggest using the onion address rather than the ip address when connecting these wallets to Umbrel

I would imagine it’s so that your wallet can access your node from anywhere in the world rather than just the same local network as you node
