Looking for a way to disable the language switcher on the WordPress login screen? On the WordPress login page, there is a default option to change the language. If you want to make your default language the only option for the login page then you need to disable the language switcher option. WordPress introduces this feature from WordPress 5.9. If your website has more than one active language then the option will be available on the login page.
For a multilingual website, it’s a great feature as users use their preferred language but if you want to make your login page simple then you can disable the feature. Here in this article, we will guide you to the easiest way to disable the language switcher on WordPress login.
