The Admin Login Notification feature helps you to be aware of when a WordPress administrator has logged into your site when you are not expecting it.

If you want to be notified every time an administrator user logs into your WordPress site, enter a notification email address into this field. If you leave this field blank, you'll not be notified.

How to change the roles for login notification emails

The WordPress filter you can use to change the minimum role for this notification is:


We only currently support the following 5 roles:

  • network_admin
  • administrator
  • editor
  • author
  • subscriber

Also, selecting any role will result in notifications for any users at that role or above.  E.g. 'editor' will result in email notifications for editor, administrator, and network_admin.
