Mautic SpamBots are Creating Anonymous Users

Your software
My Mautic version is: 2.16.2
My PHP version is: 7.1.27

Your problem
My problem is: My Mautic account is showing hundred of anonymous contacts, these contacts don’t have any information about them except their IP address. Is this a common problem? I have deduced that the bots are probably hitting Mautic directly.

Steps I have tried to fix the problem:
Disabled published forms that weren’t being used
Determined it is not coming from the API

Yep, that’s common.
To get rid of that, see “Single-Click Users” in

Hey welcome to the community.
If you don’t want to track the Mautic instance visits you can also restrict the IP
