Pros of automatic WordPress updates

  • Security vulnerabilities can be overcome with core updates, hence you can enable automatic updates to avoid the issues.

  • Plugin vulnerabilities also result in attacks, so with automatic updates, we can reduce the risk. 

  • Automatic updates give you faster access to new features in plugins, themes, and the WordPress core.

  • It also helps to save the time you spent managing your site and doing updates manually. 

Cons of automatic updates

  • If you have enabled automatic updates, you won’t get the complete site backup immediately before updates. This is very risky because there are chances for site-breaking issues during some major updates.

You can easily enable automatic updates from your cPanel account and also using a Plugin called “Easy Updates Manager”.
