Slab settling cracks

We have a pretty big cement patio poured a couple years ago along with the foundation for the house.
There are numerous tiny fractures running throughout. We were told "this is Louisiana" and that's the norm here. Whatever.
My question is can I let this go or does it need addressing as future moisture enters the tiny crack lines?

re: Slab settling cracks
All slabs will have some cracks.

I wouldn't worry unless one starts to settle and gets unlevel and you get a "toe kicker."

The reinforcement in the slab should prevent this from happening.

re: Slab settling cracks
Contractor buddy of mine says there are two types of concrete. He says there’s concrete that is cracked and concrete that is gonna crack. I guess it depends on how bad the crack is or how wide it gets. ?????

re: Slab settling cracks
2 types of concrete….

One of the funnier jokes in my industry internally. Not quite as funny with the homeowners.
