What people say:

We run almost 800 plugins on some multisite networks and this is an excellent tool for isolating plugins that we do not want to update and for helping prevent update distractions until the day updates are scheduled to be done networkwide. - SooBahkDo
This plugin has been a lifesaver as it saves me so much time over the number of sites I manage.It also allows clients to do their own updating which helps both of us. - @kim01
I’ve been using Easy Updates Manager on a website for months and it works without a hitch. I recently added the plug in to my personal site. After having a site taken down by a hack in a plug in that I did not update right away, I have peace of mind using this plug in. - Shelley-E
I used to use other plugins to prevent plugin updates (Plugin Protector and Lock Your Updates) but they no longer get updated. The only thing they had which this one doesn’t is the ability to make notes on them when you disable them from updating. Other than that this plugin is great and has a lot of advanced options! Thank you for sharing your great work! - @rrhode
Easy to use, does the job as required, no more hoping in and out of my sites to update plugins or themes, great job! - @chanbelle
Wish I’d known about years earlier.Thank you - @ddhservices
If you run multiple WordPress sites and find yourself always updating and upgrading them, then this plugin in excellent. The author is also very helpful and attends to problems and bugs promptly. Highly recommended! - bruce-s (@3ruce)
Some plugins and themes could be just break when we update them. This plugin has been helping us doing update only when we already have prepared everythings up.Nice plugin! - Justin Herz (@syabah471)
I used to update all my WP sites manually, verifying everything works as promised after each update. This preventive policy is time consuming and annoying. So far I rarely had a problem after an update. Therefore I switched to a curative update policy: automate backups as well as updates and fix problems if an update did not work out.Works so far. ? - hermitC (@hermitc)
What a wonderful and helpful tool for managing multiple sites. Saves so much time. Easy to configure. Intelligently designed. Just love it! - Eric Greenspan (@tothemoonsb)
