The reason why the WP Security Audit Log plugin has a very comprehensive WordPress activity log because from the security point of view, the more you know the better it is. Though not everyone is interested in knowing all the nitty-gritty details of who did what. Hence why we included the functionality in the plugin to allow users to disable (and enable back) the logging of specific changes, as explained in this post.

The list of all the alerts the plugin uses to keep a log of all the changes on your WordPress website is in the Enable /Disable Alerts node in the plugin menu.
