Spam Leads

Hi,



We recently set up a website page purely for testing purposes, and this includes our Mautic Opt-In Form.



Even though we haven’t launched our campaign yet, we seem to be attracting ‘spam’ leads.

We only received about three or four of these over the last month, but I noticed that we attracted about 8 new ones over the last couple of days alone.



Is this a common problem with Mautic Opt-In Forms?

Or is it more likely to be caused by spammers somehow finding our testing page (which is viewable to anyone with the URL, but the URL has obviously not been promoted anywhere and only a couple of people in our company know it.)
