How to Remove Proudly powered by WordPress

In the root folder of the theme that you’re using, find the footer.php file.

The path for this file might look like this:

Open this file in your favorite text editor and remove this line:
printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s.', 'twentynineteen' ), 'WordPress' );
I would search for “proudly powered”.

Since it’s hard coded into the theme, there are no settings you can tweak from the admin GUI to make this go away.
