Matheology § 275

The term actual infinite is not a term of set theory, despite what
crazy internet authors like to say.
[Kwalish Kid (2006)]

Yes, set theorists try to avoid that term in order to remain
attractive to sober minds - but set theory needs actual or completed
or, why not put it frankly, finished infinity and uses it heavily.
