How to disable automatic plugins and themes update emails

Since WordPress 5.5 we have available the automatic updates of plugins and themes, but also the emails that are sent each time they are made.

And you’re probably tired of getting emails about everything WordPress does, right?

Well, let’s see how to turn off these annoying emails…

Disable automatic update emails for plugins and themes with a single code

If you are – like me – one of those who likes to make things simple and effective, and to have everything controlled and personalized, then with this simple code you deactivate all these annoying emails:

//Disable automatic plugin update emails
add_filter('auto_plugin_update_send_email', '__return_false');
//Disable automatic theme update emails
add_filter('auto_theme_update_send_email', '__return_false');Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

You add the above code to the end of the functions.php file of the active theme or to your customizations and utilities plugin and that’s it, no more automatic plugin and theme update emails.

Of course, if you prefer, you can use just one of the lines, if you want to receive notifications of updates to plugins, or themes, yourself.
