What are Bot Session in Microsoft Clarity and how can I identify a session is a bot session. Can we prevent a bot session ?

I've recently integrated Microsoft Clarity into our website and have observed the inclusion of 'bot sessions' in my dashboard's 'Total sessions' data. Despite conducting extensive research, I couldn't locate specific information about bot sessions within the Clarity platform. Consequently, I'm eager to gain a comprehensive understanding of what these bot sessions represent in Clarity, how they are generated, their potential impact on our website, strategies for accessing in-depth information about these sessions, and effective approaches for monitoring and tracking their increasing count.

    In Microsoft Clarity, bot sessions are generated by automated bots, not human users. To identify them, visit the Session Recordings page and filter sessions by 'Bot Sessions.' To prevent bot sessions, use CAPTCHA, block known bot IP addresses, or employ a bot detection service. For monitoring, simply revisit the Session Recordings page and filter sessions by 'Bot Sessions.
