How To Stop the Password Changed Email

Hi there I'm using coupon classic theme and tried out the facebook social login this morning. It worked fine but I noticed a few admin emails came through that are superfluous. The first one was to me personally to click a link to update my password. Is it possible to edit this email somewhere as there are 2 links together with one space in between and I'd like to reformat the email if possible so it has a sign off and sounds more professional. Once I followed that process to update my email, support receive an email saying password changed for user: my name. Where can I go to stop that email being sent please? I really don't want to receive an email every time someone changes their password...

    Hello EvieB,

    Unfortunately, this would need to be handled via code to modify WP default process. You would need to create and add a couple functions within your file to do handle it.

    Unless it’s’ being caused from a plugin, then there might be a type of setting or the plugin would need to be deactivated.

    Perhaps someone here already has something already put together that allows this.

    hi Elvie,

    this is a default process from wordpress so you’ll have to modify it through the wordpress core.

    I have the same problem. After registration, I received a welcome email that already included my username and password. A second email is about login, telling me to SET new password from a reset link which I didn’t ask for any lost password. This is a WordPress default and needs to stop this confusion. But how? There’s an answer link from WP –

    But I could find the function file that contains the same snippets in my cPanel. Maybe someone has an idea. Thanks!

    add_filter(‘pp_enable_auto_send_password_reset_flag’, ‘__return_false’);

    You can disable default WordPress notifications messages by using a WordPress plugin “Manage Notification E-mails”.

    You can download it from
