Does Adafruit's bq24074 solar charger protect against batter

Will Adafruit's bq24074 solar charger disconnect load out voltage from the battery before the battery voltage becomes dangerously low? I hear that Lithium batteries can catch fire when manipulated from near empty.

The solar charger does not control the lipo discharge and it is the battery's responsibility to protect itself from low voltage. What are you trying to accomplish with the charger?
