WP Plugin Filter


WP Plugin Filter is a simple and lightweight WordPress plugin that allows you to hide specific plugins from the plugin list in the WordPress admin dashboard. This can be useful if you have plugins that are intended for internal use only or plugins that don’t require user interaction.

Once activated, WP Plugin Filter provides an easy-to-use interface where you can select which plugins you want to hide. The selected plugins will no longer appear in the plugin list, making it easier to manage your installed plugins.


  • Hide selected plugins from the WordPress plugin list.
  • Easy-to-use interface for managing hidden plugins.
  • Lightweight and optimized for performance.
  • Does not affect the functionality of the hidden plugins; they remain active and functional.
