How to kill off account password email in Joomla 4

Post by BatteriesInc » Sun Sep 25, 2022 10:31 pm

Joomla! still defaults to emailing passwords on new account creation. No, seriously, it's 2022 and this is still a default..

Given that it emerged quite difficult to find this Joomla 4 setting online (even in search engines) I'm posting it here in the hope that it makes it easier to find for others. The good news is that this switch actually does the job.

- In the menu, select "System" and choose "Plugins" in the group "Manage"
- Search for "User - Joomla!" and click on what you find.
- Make sure the toggle "Notification Mail to User" is set to "off"

[Save] and you're done.
