    I have a WordPress theme
    As for everyone else, I have to log in to my wordpress dashboard
    with a username and a password.

    I did receive an e-mail that "apparently" comes from WordPress
    saying;

    New user registration on your site jeanyvesahern:

    Username: ranfamika34

    E-mail: [ redacted ]

    ranfamika34 is not my username
    could you tell me what is this?

  2. It could be spam or you may have your WordPress installation set to permit registrations.

    Visit your options page and confirm that Anyone can register is not checked.

    thanks Jan!

    what if someone already registered?

  4. You can check for additional users via

    http://your-URL-here/wp-admin/users.php

    If you see users that you do not recognize then you may want to delete those. Make sure you have a backup as a just in case first.
