Someone joined class w/weird combo of letters, like random password. How do I figure out who it is?

Their username and email just contain the random combination of letters. My guess is that it's a student who clicked a link and accidentally put the suggested random password as their username...? Is there anyway I can figure out their identity. They haven't yet done any activity.

Do you have contact with your students, maybe ask them. Or if you do Google classroom, post there name and write who is it.
