This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin is very simple! It removes the menu icon to access the profile page for the selected user roles in wordpress admin pannel. It also redirects the locked user to the admin homepage if it tries to access directly the profile page (as the menuitem has been removed).


Get to the options page and set the user roles for which you want to lock profile page access.

Simple and works. I used this to stop users from getting access to their profile and changing their password.

Installed plugin, activated it, went to Settings and selected everyone but Administrator, saved settings, page reloaded with random items deselected. I tested with a user login in a separate browser and the plugin settings failed to hide the Profile menu. I don’t want to have to keep resetting user passwords once I’ve created accounts.
