When you view the source code of Joomla website, you will notice following meta generator. This comes default with Joomla!

<meta name="generator" content="Joomla! - Open Source Content Management" />

Did you every wonder how to remove them? Well, there are many ways to do that. I will show you the easiest one. You can do this without hacking code. I came across Joomla Plugin – Bye Bye Generator, which will do your job.

Bye Bye Generator

Very tiny plugin to do exactly – remove Meta generate. You also have the option to rename custom generator. This is compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x

  • Download and Install Bye Bye Generator Plugin
  • Open the plugin from Plugin Manager
  • Click Remove next to generator and publish it.
  • Refresh your Joomla website and verify with page source code

I tested and worked as expected!
