WordPress notifications made easy

Do you want to keep eye on a specific activity on your website? Do you want to get alert on admin login with a push notification? It's easy with WP Cerber subscriptions.


Yes, you heard it right. Subscriptions to events work like a subscription to a newsletter or following someone on Facebook. Once you have subscribed to a specific activity you will get a notification letter by email and a push notification with each event. You can create as many subscriptions as you need.

You can easily subscribe to events according to the filter you have set. Go to the Activity tab, filter out activities that you are interested to monitor, and then click the Subscribe link on the right. Done! To stop receiving notifications just click an unsubscribe link in the footer of any notification email or push message. Note: to unsubscribe, you have to be authorized (logged in) on your website.

Where my notifications will be delivered to?

Notification settings in WordPress

Notification settings in WordPress

All notification letters will be sent to the email addresses you see in the Notifications section of the plugin settings. If you don’t specify any email address there, notification will be sent to the Email Address that you have set on the General Settings admin page of your WordPress (Settings -> General -> Email Address ).

If you have set up push notifications via Pushbullet, you will receive pop-up messages on a selected device or a desktop browser. Find more: set up push notifications for your smartphone or desktop browser.

Note 1: If you subscribe to a huge amount of events, that may slow down your website.

Note 2: To unsubscribe you must be authorized (logged in) on your website.
