Limiting Wordfence Email Alerts

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to limit the number of email alerts Wordfence sends per hour, ensuring your inbox remains manageable.

From there, click on the Email Alert Preferences section to expand all options.

Setting the Maximum Email Alerts per Hour

In the Email Alert Preferences section, scroll down to locate the Maximum email alerts to send per hour option. Here, you can specify the maximum number of email alerts you want to receive per hour. For example, entering 5 will limit Wordfence to send a maximum of 5 emails per hour.
