Prevent new users to watch a space by default

When a new user connects to Confluence for the first time, it is automatically added to the "Watch this space" list and receives all notifications regarding the space.

How do I change the defaults so that it does not occur?

Hi Emmanuel, I didn't found anything about space restriction only pages. But what I know for sure is that new users only have access to visit, watch, etc... Spaces they create other than that must be given permission.

Hope it helps and if you have any other question, please ask.
