    Is it possible to prevent the plugin from sending me an email every time a plugin needs to be updated?

    Hello @alfredo49 and thanks for reaching out to us!

    You will need to change some of the All-Options > Email Alert Preferences.

    As far as what I would suggest if you wanted to receive an absolute bare minimum. I would keep the following active:

    • Email me if Wordfence is deactivated
    • Alert on critical problems
    • Alert me when someone with administrator access signs in & Only alerts me when that administrator signs in from a new device or location

    Once again these are just a suggestion, you can choose what settings fit best for you. Keep in mind by deactivating these notifications, you may be lowering your ability to quickly react to an attack or vulnerability.

    Let me know if this helps!


    I have ALL the alerts / notification boxes check BUT I have not received a single alert e-mail in 2 months when I login to my WP Dashboard?? How do I reactivate the e-mails so I know if someone is trying to login to my WP Dashboard?? It was working for years and then my site was infected with Malware. A WP Developer cleaned up my site so it is clean now but the Wordfence Plug-in is not generating any e-mails to me??? HELP!!!

    As I mentioned before, sometimes the table can stop responding. Uncheck all of those boxes in the All-Options > Email Alert Preferences, then SAVE the changes. Go back through and select the ones you want to be enabled and then SAVE again. This will reset the table and we can see if the emails are coming through then.

    Let me know what you find!


    I did what you said — Turned ALL off —- Saved Changes

    Turn all ON — Saved changes

    NOTHING — Still no e-mail when I logged back into my WP Dashboard

    My Hosting company says there is nothing blocking my e-mail
    That the problem lies in the Wordfence Plug-in

    @sblasnik Could you open a new topic so I can troubleshoot this further with you?

    As per forum guidelines below, could you please open your own topic and we would be glad to assist you:
    “Unless users have the exact same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme, and configurations, then the odds are the solution for one user will not be the same for another. For this reason, we recommend people start their own topics.”
