    Hi there:

    Are you aware of a plugin or snippet that works to disable WordPress automated notification sent to my Admin email address whenever a new user registers? Whether from the WooCommerce New Account or whenever I manually add a new User.

    I just want to stop the email sent to the Admin whenever a new user registration is generate.

    I’ve already unchecked the “Anyone can register” box under Settings / General
    That’s not the issue, the issue is how can I stop WordPress from sending notification to my Admin email address each time there’s a new legitimate User registration.

    Let me know if you can help. Thanks!

    Already saw that page, tried all their options and it didn’t work.

    However, I created a custom plugin with the following snippet, it seems to work disabled
    both notification emails to the User and Admin when there’s a new user registration.

    // DISABLE BOTH default WordPress new user notification emails
    if ( ! function_exists( ‘wp_new_user_notification’ ) ) :
    function wp_new_user_notification( $user_id, $deprecated = null, $notify = ” ) {

    BUT THEN MY QUESTION TO YOU IS: Does this also disable the New Account notification when a customer signs up for an account during Checkout? I hope not, See screenshot: https://prnt.sc/r2n5dc

    I simply want to disable the notification sent to the ADMIN when there’s a new user registration, that is all. Thanks!

    If the Disable New User Notification Emails plugin doesn’t work, you can try to find another one. We did not test such plugins with our theme, so we can’t give a solid response about this, unfortunately.
    Our theme doesn’t have specific settings for the notification, so you need to contact the support of WordPress and WooCommerce. Additional customization in files is outside our basic support, we can help you only with existing options.
