Why are people trying to contact my students ? How can this feature be disabled?

I need some help , someone a Lady named Sonia is trying to contact my students and I disabled the student account. Please look into this, I have been using Duolingo for 3 years but if there is no privacy we will use another program

Public profiles can be followed if the pupils are old enough.

You can set profiles to PRIVATE: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/privacy

Hi,

'Sonya' has been taken care of, but I recommend disabling social features for your students via your classroom settings. See 'How do I disable social features and mature vocabulary for my students?'

Any user is allowed to follow anyone if they want you con either block the user by going to their profile and clicking on the gear ⚙️ button and then on block + (their username)

Or to make sure nobody can look at their profile or follow them do this

You can just make there profiles privet by going to https://www.duolingo.com/settings/privacy and unchecking the make my profile public button then click on save changes
