Hide 'Last login:' on bash login

Everytime I open a new Terminal on my Mac, I get a line like this:

Last login: Thu Nov 25 09:07:55 on ttys004

This annoys me. I don’t care when I last opened a local Terminal.

To hide this “Last login” message when logging in to bash you need to create a file in your homedirectory.

touch ~/.hushlogin

With this .hushlogin file in place you won’t see the “Last login” message and go directly to your prompt, where you want to be.

If you're seeing this message you've probably enabled some form of adblocker. I respect that.

I use this space to show recommended books on Amazon.com in relation to the post you just read. This generates a small income that allows me to buy a book every now and then.
