How to remove the Jetpack admin menu from subscribers

The Jetpack admin menu is visible to everybody, including subscribers. This may not be what you want. You may even want to hide it from other admins, perhaps once you’ve given a site over o a client and you don’t want him to switch off vital functionality by accident.

Here’s how you can hide the Jetpack admin menu in your WordPress back end.

Hide Jetpack from Non-Admins (including Subscribers)

If you would like your admin users to see Jetpack and hide it from everyone else, add this to your theme’s function.php file:

Here we test “is Jetpack actually running”, and if it is, “is this user an administrator”. If all signs point to yes then we’ll remove the menu page. You can replace “pinkstone” with another prefix of course.

Feel free to change the user capabilities to something else if you’d like to make Jetpack visible to authors or editors. You can read more about those options here:

You can also achieve this functionality by installing a super small plugin courtesy of Jeremy Herve, lead author of Jetpack:
