How to disable JetPack messages in the WordPress Admin interface

Many WordPress sites rely on the Jetpack extension offered by Automattic. Available for free, it also includes premium features that  require switching to a paid subscription. To encourage users of the free version to opt for the superior offer, Jetpack displays rather intrusive banners in the back office in the form of notification.

With a single line of code, it is possible to disable them to find our serenity. Create a mu-plugin file then paste the following single line:

 /* Hide Jetpack Banner */ 
add_filter('jetpack_just_in_time_msgs', '__return_false');

Here’s an example of a banner that will disappear after adding this code:

Note that some notifications, such as the example, are made to encourage you to use some features of the extension available as a free version. It’s very intrusive and it’s the door open for each extension to do the same!

Stop intrusive notifications with WordPress hooks!
