Buddypress email change verification email

I have buddypress installed on Multisite. When a user wants to change their email from the buddypress settings (frontend) the system generates an onscreen alert:

"There is a pending change of your email address to david+david2A@10-10-10program.com.
Check your email (david+david2@10-10-10program.com) for the verification link, or cancel the pending change."

and send an email with a link that says:
"You recently changed the email address associated with your account on MAGtap. If this is correct, go here to confirm the change."

The user is required to click on the link: go here to confirm
or the email change will not happen.

How do I stop this behavior?
I want the user to be able to change their email without having to go through this verifiaction process.
