Disable the Site Health Dashboard Widget in WordPress 5.4

Disable the site health dashboard widget in WordPress 5.4.

Snippet Type

Execute on Child Sites


add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'remove_site_health_dashboard_widget');
function remove_site_health_dashboard_widget()
    remove_meta_box('dashboard_site_health', 'dashboard', 'normal');

Hi @sebastian-moran,
Does it change something to disable it? Improve speed in the admin? Reduce the use of the resources?

It will improve the load time of the admin without another admin dashboard to load.
