    Unfortunately this is the behaviour of html forms once the 'Enter' key
    is pressed this triggers the form action which submits the data.

    You can make all the fields mandatory or required to prevent users
    from submitting the form with incomplete data.

    To make the field mandatory just click on the field and then
    click on 'Required' from the toolbar.

    Adding a Captcha at the end of the form is also a good idea to prevent unwanted
    form submissions and spam.You can find the Captcha field under the Power Tools:

    Hope this helps.
