WordPress Login Shake Effect

The login shake feature is added with a JavaScript file that WordPress adds on every login page. All we need to do is remove that JavaScript.

Simply add the following code in your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function wpb_remove_loginshake() {  	remove_action('login_head', 'wp_shake_js', 12);  }  add_action('login_head', 'wpb_remove_loginshake');  

Removing the login shake effect is an aesthetic decision and should be made completely based on your personal preference. In our opinion, it helps get user’s attention and let them know that there is an error. On our sites, we do not remove the login shake effect.
