Disable Admin Email Verification in WordPress 5.3

7 Dec 2019

Included in WordPress 5.3 is a new administration email verification feature, which will trigger every 6 months. Only administrator users will be prompted to verify their email address. Here is what the verification looks like:

This new feature could be considered as an annoyance, or even confuse clients. Luckily, there is an easy way to disable it if you are using a child theme with Divi. All you need to do is add the following to your child theme functions.php file:

add_filter( 'admin_email_check_interval', '__return_false' );

That's it! The email verification will no longer appear.
