How to Turn Off the WordPress Admin Email Verification Screen

WordPress 5.3 introduced the concept of administration email verification. Ever since that release, users see the WordPress admin email verification screen in order to confirm the email address for the website is correct.

This is a nice bit of security and a thoughtful way to make sure a site’s settings are current. Of course, it’s also an incredibly confusing break from the normal login process for most WordPress users. Here’s an example of what this screen looks like. It appears immediately after a user finishes logging in with their username and password:

Our plugin, White Label Pro, has a feature that allows you to turn off the WordPress admin email verification screen. This feature is flexible. You, as the site’s main administrator, will still see the screen on its regular schedule. Your other admin users will be exempt from being shown this screen. Their login process will never be interrupted again.

Let’s go over the steps to remove this feature from your WordPress installation.

Remove the WordPress Email Verification Screen

To begin, you will have to purchase a license of White Label Pro. After purchase, you will need to install and activate the plugin on your WordPress install. If you need assistance, our site has extensive documentation that can help you install White Label Pro. Once the installation is complete, you can head over to White Label Pro’s setting screen. You will find the setting for disabling the email verification under the Miscellaneous tab.

Scroll to the Administration Email Verification section of the Miscellaneous tab. You will find a checkbox here that will let you turn off the verification:
