    You probably are getting these warning messages upon clicking in any of the fields and leaving them empty or just clicking on submit. This is the normal way it works when you set a field as required. I would not recommend you to set each and every field as required. Only those with critical information such as email address should be required.

    You can also add a captcha field to prevent spam messages, you can either use the captcha or re-captcha version
