The copyright footer is often isolated from the rest of your website’s content so that you can modify the font and size to match your website’s design.

This copyright footer is displayed by default in certain WordPress themes, but it can be customized to your liking.

For the copyright information to be removed or changed in GeneratePress, you only need a plugin and a few basic code tweaks. It’s no secret that the footer of your website is one of the most frequently reworked regions of the site.

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to edit or perhaps remove GeneratePress copyright in your footer.

1. Install and Activate GP Premium Plugin

Now You will need  to navigate to Appearance > GeneratePress > Activate (Copyright) As you can see from the this image

3. Now click Appearance > Customize


4. Now click  on Layout

4. head to the footer section

6. Scroll down, change at “Copyright”, then click on Publish

Then insert this code into Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS

display: none;

Some other plugins

Remove footer credit

Any section of the content on the page, generally the footer, can be replaced or removed with this plugin. Ad removal, affiliate link addition, copyright information, custom CSS/JS addition, and the replacement of “Powered by” links are some of the most typical uses for this plugin. It’s possible that third-party themes’ license agreements restrict your ability to remove copyright notices. To remove the copyright notice, we recommend contacting the theme provider and working with them to do so. In our case upgrading to the premium version of GeneratePress is all we need
