They are normally held in /root/wp-content/themes/THEME-NAME/footer.php.

Look for the text you would like to delete and remove it along with any links, etc.

Go to that directory and open footer.php, open the website and look for the text you want to delete from the bottom of the page, then find that text in the footer.php file and remove it.

The file will depend on the theme used so if it isn't there check, header.php, index.php and home.php.

If this is self-hosted WordPress then the above instructions are accurate.  If this is WordPress.com then you cannot remove the footer stuff unless you upgrade to a paid package that allows for edits to themes or custom CSS.

Then you can't remove footer. You will have to upgrade to Paid account so you can customize the theme.
