If you are a SiteGround user, you may have noticed that you receive weekly emails detailing the security activity on your website. While these emails can be helpful in keeping track of potential threats, they can also become overwhelming, especially if you have multiple websites or if you find them unnecessary. In this blog post, we will discuss why you may want to disable these emails and provide step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
Why disable SiteGround Security’s “Weekly Activity” emails
The “Weekly Activity” emails from SiteGround are meant to inform you of any potential security threats to your website. They provide details on the number of blocked login attempts, malware detections, and other important information. However, if you have multiple websites or if you are not particularly concerned with security activity, these emails can quickly become overwhelming. Additionally, you may find that you are already monitoring your website’s security through other means, such as Google Analytics. In these cases, disabling the emails may be the best option.
Step-by-step instructions to disable the emails
Disabling the “Weekly Activity” emails is a straightforward process. Follow these instructions to stop receiving the emails:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
- Click on the “SiteGround Security” tab.
- Click on the “Activity Log” tab.
- Find the “Weekly Reports” section and click on the trash icon text to your email.
That’s it! You will no longer receive the “Weekly Activity” emails for this website. Repeat these steps for any other websites you have on your SiteGround account.
While disabling the “Weekly Activity” emails is an easy solution, it’s important to remember that staying informed about the security activity on your website is crucial. If you choose to disable the emails, there are alternative options available.
One of the best alternative options is using Google Analytics. Google Analytics will not only help you monitor the traffic on your website but also it can give you important insight into the visitors, their location, devices, and much more. Additionally, you can also set up alerts to notify you of any unusual activity on your website.
Another option is to check SiteGround’s security dashboard regularly. This can be accessed by logging into your SiteGround account and clicking on the “Security” tab. Here, you will be able to see the number of blocked login attempts, malware detections, and other security-related information for your website.
