Send email notification when profile updates

I got a few emails asking about sending an email when a user simply updates the profile. Well here it is, adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will send an email notification to the user when the user profile updates.

function user_profile_update( $user_id ) {
	$site_url = get_bloginfo('wpurl');
        $user_info = get_userdata( $user_id );
        $to = $user_info->user_email; 
        $subject = "Profile Updated: ".$site_url."";
        $message = "Hello " .$user_info->display_name . "\nYour profile has been updated!\n\nThank you for visiting\n ".$site_url."";
        wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message);
add_action( 'profile_update', 'user_profile_update', 10, 2);

    1. Not much can be down about that, I would think it has to do with spam settings.
