How do I turn off email validation for profile updates?

Article Last Updated: July 27, 2016

In version, we added email validation for users who update their Mailchimp profiles via a form. The user clicks to send themselves an email with a link to update their profile. This prevents people from updating other users’ profiles without permission.

However, some sites have use cases where this validation disrupts their workflow. In version 6.1 of the plugin we added a setting to turn this validation email off under Opt-in Settings.
