Turn off plugin notification in admin

Just bought a plugin. Now there's a red bar in the admin telling me to get your Update Notification Plugin. How do I turn this off?

    Hey there, thanks for getting in touch.

    The only way to turn this off without editing the code would be to install the plugin.

    If you really don't want to do that then I can advise, I'll use this plugin as example:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/social-marketing/

    Open:

    /social-marketing/social-marketing.php

    And remove:

    /* -------------------- Update Notifications Notice -------------------- */
    if ( !function_exists( 'wdp_un_check' ) ) {
    	add_action( 'admin_notices', 'wdp_un_check', 5 );
    	add_action( 'network_admin_notices', 'wdp_un_check', 5 );
    	function wdp_un_check() {
    		if ( !class_exists( 'WPMUDEV_Update_Notifications' ) && current_user_can( 'install_plugins' ) )
    			echo '<div class="error fade"><p>' . __('Please install the latest version of <a href="https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/update-notifications/" title="Download Now &raquo;">our free Update Notifications plugin</a> which helps you stay up-to-date with the most stable, secure versions of WPMU DEV themes and plugins. <a href="https://premium.wpmudev.org/wpmu-dev/update-notifications-plugin-information/">More information &raquo;</a>', 'wpmudev') . '</a></p></div>';
    	}
    }
    /* --------------------------------------------------------------------- */

    That will remove the message.

    Please note that is the only way we inform you of updates which could include fixes (including security related ones) and enhancements.

    Take care.
