Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The history records the action as the user that was logged in, so yes, a bad admin could do bad things that look like an innocent user did it.

I believe the audit log records "admin logged in as X" though.

Hi @Alana Mcpake welcome to the community.  You cannot prevent a bad admin from doing bad things however as mentioned there is an audit log that would reflect the admin logged in as that user.
