Removing Remember Me Checkbox with Hook

By default, the WordPress login form has the "Remember Me" checkbox on the login form. It stores the users' login credentials if they check the Remember Me checkbox before hitting the Log In button. So, the next time they don’t need to add login credentials to access your site.

Suppose you have customized the default WordPress login page using the LoginPress plugin and want to remove the “Remember Me” checkbox for any reason. What would you do?

Don’t look any further! In this knowledge base article, we’ll show you how to easily remove the “Remember Me" checkbox from the WordPress login form using a hook while using the LoginPress plugin.

Let’s get started!

Remove the Remember Me Checkbox Using LoginPress 

To remove the “Remember Me” checkbox from your customized WordPress login page created with LoginPress, you’ll need to update the code to your website theme's functions.php file.

Note: It’s recommended to use a child theme to edit the functions.php file instead of the parent theme. There are chances to lose the modified code when you update your theme. It might cause some adverse effects on your website.

To do this, go to the left sidebar of your WordPress admin dashboard, navigate to Appearance, and click the Theme File Editor option.

On the next screen, click the Theme Functions on the right-hand side. Scroll down to the bottom of the functions.php file and add the following code:

apply_filters( 'loginpress_remember_me', true );

Once you’ve added the hook, click the Update File button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
