Hide All WordPress Updates from a Specific User

Here is how to hide ALL update notifications in the WordPress admin area for a specific username. So if you wanted to hide updates when your client logins to WordPress you could use this.

It is important to note that this is not recommended unless you plan on routinely updating the site for your client. A situation where this might make sense is if you have your client on a WordPress Maintenance Plan of some sort and you don’t want them updating the site themselves.
