Hi Bielecki, I thank for your super quick reply. \(^O^)/
I had already know Registration Checkboxes plugin and installed it.
but this plugin didn’t resolve my problem.
though this plugin show configuration option, 
I want to hide email adresss as default setting.
Because most of people don’t want to show email adresss on my board.
I guess there is configuration file in MyBB software, I couldn’t find it.  Sad

you need to edit the member.php file from your cpanel file manager and look around L1093:

and change this....
$hideemailcheck = '';

into this...
$hideemailcheck = "checked=\"checked\"";
