Why can I not disable credit alerts for credit card payments?

I would like to be able disable credit alerts for simply paying off my credit card. This feature is not useful and causes more anxiety than anything.

To see an alert that says my credit report has changed unnecessarily raises alarm bells.  

For one thing I'm well aware that I paid off my card, that is not a cause for alarm in the slightest (and I would be receiving alerts every single month since I always pay my card balance). For another, what exactly is the benefit? So that I know in the unlikely case that a nefarious person is paying off my credit card?

I can see maybe some users would prefer this to be enabled, but I would definitely prefer to have the option to disable it.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
