Hello TestAwesome!,

There are many ways to stop this. One recommended way is to make it so that users have the activate themselves through email. You can do this by going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Users & Groups Tab
3. Users options (on the left, under Users)
4. Select "New accounts activation : User"

Alternatively, you can decide who can join and who can't by selecting the "Admin" option. However, this means that ALL registrations must be manually activated or deactivated. Smile

Regards,

Base
