Users are able to log in without authentication after registration


I have tried it on a fresh WordPress installation and made sure Login After Registration is disabled. but when i try to log in after creating an account it does not require me to confirm my email nor does it send me a registration confirmation email. there is no authentication process, which means that users are able to create fake accounts with fake emails. what am i missing?

Edit: there is a welcome email that i receive, which i didn’t consider it to be an authentication email, and i can see there is no template for any authentication email in the Emails Customization settings. does that mean your plugin does not authenticate users?
