WordPress is a regularly updated platform and it accompanies its users along as well. By default, WordPress sends Email Notifications for Automatic Updates to its users.

While for most of us, these notifications can be a distraction and a waste of time. In this tutorial, we are going to show you some ways to disable these email notifications.

What are Automatic Update Notifications

You might be aware that WordPress is an open-source content management forum and it is maintained and updated regularly and automatically. These automatic updates are installed and an email is sent alongside to the user about the updates.

WordPress also allows you to enable automatic updates for plugins and themes so that you work more on your content and do not worry about the regular updates.
