Reasons Why You Should Not Stop Update Notifications
It is very important that you keep your WordPress plugins up to date. If you don’t, then your blog could be susceptible to security vulnerabilities or performance issues. Some developers or consultants like this ability because they do not want the clients to upgrade a plugin (just in-case if it breaks the site). This is not a very good reason. You are potentially risking security, performance, and additional features all because of a fear that the site will break down due to an upgrade. It does not take that long to downgrade a plugin if the site breaks.
