Should allow_sign_up be enabled by default? It seems like this goes against secure by default principles by risking giving the public access to potentially-sensitive dashboards.

Yes, agree. This was not a big deal a year or two ago but the situation has changed with lots of grafana instances now outside of company firewalls. See grafana/grafana-docker#85

Glad you agree @daniellee - I've done a little research and a rather alarming number of publicly-accessible Grafana instances do indeed have sign-up enabled. Of the domains I surveyed (1000), ~30% had it enabled.
