Mysterious Anonymous Contacts

I am new to mautic, could someone explain to me what a anonymous contact/lead actually is? Are they visitors to your-domain.com site OR your mautic site such as mautic.your-domain.com? Why would they be recorded as a lead if they never filled out a form?



My self-hosted new Mautic installation suddenly created many anonymous leads from Japapn, all have similar IP addresses such as this one: 150.70.188.166



Is there a way to stop them?

anonymous leads are the visitor that does not identify yet because they haven’t fill any form to collect extra info like (first name, email etc).

The visitor is been tracking on the website you insert the Mautic plugin
