Does my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe need a timing chain replacement?

My Hyundai Santa Fe has 130,000 miles on it and I’ve read that the timing chain should be replaced after 100,000 miles. Is that right, or is it still safe to drive until noticing some symptoms? I guess a chain shows more noticeable symptoms compared to a belt?
The timing chain is designed to last the life of the car. Unless the chain is showing signs of problems (rattling or causing the engine to stutter) it should be fine.

However, due to the age of the car, it'd be wise to have the chain checked at the next service.
