Top Threat Type Previous 30 days Bad browser

I suspect I’m getting too many attacks. In fact Cloudflare says Bad Browser. What does it mean? Do I need to increase the security of my website? What should I do to increase the site’s defenses?

From the docs:

The source of the request was not legitimate or the request itself was malicious. Users would see a 1010 error page in their browser.
Cloudflare’s Browser Integrity Check looks for common HTTP headers abused most commonly by spammers and denies them access to your page. It will also challenge visitors that do not have a user agent or a non standard user agent (also commonly used by bots, crawlers, or visitors).

Can the Bad Browser be a source of concern for me running the site and why? Can it also block Google bots? If yes, this would explain the zero clicks from the SERP and the difficulty of Google crawling my URLs.
