WP-User: remove ability to update email

We are using WP User plugin to allow for member only registration and member pricing for events. When a memeber logs-in and registers after the registration they have the option to enter a email. Is it possible to remove this. Our Ontraport CRM uses the email address as identifying field for members. Which means changing it in WordPress causes issues or duplicate contacts with difference emails addresses. Since our members login can we somehow remove the field after they register for an events to change or update their email? Thank you for you help.

I’m guessing not all of your events are member-only? Meaning you only want to hide that field if the user is currently logged in.

The easiest method to do this is to hide it using CSS when the user is logged in, using something like this:

Add that to a custom functions plugin on the site, we have documentation on creating one here:
