Debss, winnet is right. You can get a lot of information regarding removing the wordpress footer on Google.

Removing the Powered by Wordpress in the footer requires you to go into the wordpress theme file and make some changes. The procedure might differ slightly among different themes but generally you need to locate the theme file that contains the code that displays it and then delete that code.

This code is usually in the footer.php file but some themes may have it in the Functions.php or other of the theme files. Also note that a few themes (not many) would stop working if you tamper with the footer so always read any licensing agreements or terms (if any) before tampering with the footer codes.

Thankfully, most themes will allow you to modify their footer, especially the default wordpress themes.

See the following link for a technique that will work for the default theme and most other themes: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

If your theme does not allow modification of the footer, Another nice and very effective way of removing the Powered by Wordpress or Proudly Powered by Wordpress is to use CSS to hide the div within which the credits are shown.

To do this, you need to know the id of the div within which the attribution is shown. I helped you check the ID of the div in your theme and here is what you should do to hide the powered by.

1. Login to your dashboard and go to Appearance then Editor
2. Doing this will open up the base CSS file for the theme.
3. Scroll to the very bottom of the file and add the following code after the last line:

#credits {
    display: none;
}


4. Click update file and view your website after refreshing
5. If you have installed a caching plugin you may need to delete your cache if the links are still showing


For other themes:
First you need to get the correct div id. To get this,
1. View the site source and search for the words powered by
2. When you find the words, check the code just before it and you will see something like <div id="footer2">
3. Depending on the theme, footer2 could be any word, but whatever is there, that is the div id you are looking for
4. When you have the div id, follow the steps in the first example above but in your code replace credits as used above with your div id
5. So in this example, the code we will use is:

#footer2 {
    display: none;
}

 
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

It comes back after updating because any changes you make is being overwritten by the new theme update. The way to make this permanent is to use a child theme (search Google for wordpress child theme) and make the changes there.
