    Is there a plugin or method I can employ to prevent my users from removing their email addresses after they have registered?

    Remove addresses from where? Email addresses are all stored in a database and they are never shown on their comments or any posts/pages they create. They should not have access to the database.

    You need to explain what exactly do you want to do. Users can change their profile and that might include their e-mail but then I don't understand your question. I can change my e-mail in my WP profile that I am using here but I need to verify my new e-mail address otherwise it won't change.

    I do not want them to remove their emails from their profile. I don't mind that they change the email addresses... I just don't want them changed to blank or invalid.

    Conversely they need the facility to change their passwords so I can not simply remove the entire edit user profile function.

    If they enter blank email then it won't change because they won't receive the verification e-mail from your site.

    For every change, there is a verification process in place. I haven't seen any problems with this setup.

    For some reason I get users with blank emails... curious.

    Have you tried to duplicate this yourself (i.e. create a user with an email, verify that it is working, then try changing the profile - to delete the email) ?

    What theme are you using, plug-ins, site?

    Hi WPyogi

    I am unable to do the deletion of email. However I still get accounts without emails. Now I am totally baffled. Any ideas how that might happen? Could it be through a social login?
