How would one change the Copyright in the Admin panel? Just to clarify - I'm speaking about the copyright notice on the bottom of the page inside the admin panel and on the login page into the admin panel.

Magento 2.1.0

Do not know what is the purpose for modification.

You can modify this text in below template.(recommended by creating new module)


<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Copyright&copy; %1 Magento Commerce Inc. All rights reserved.', date('Y')) ?>

Overriding the template file isn't the best practice though. The admin legal blocks are defined in: /vendor/magento/module-backend/view/adminhtml/layout/default.xml:55

<referenceContainer name="footer">
    <container name="legal" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-legal">
        <container name="legal.copyright" htmlTag="p" htmlClass="copyright col-m-6">
            <block class="Magento\Backend\Block\Page\Copyright" name="copyright" as="copyright" />
        <container name="legal.system" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-legal-system col-m-6">
            <block class="Magento\Backend\Block\Page\Footer" name="version" as="version" />
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="report" as="report" template="Magento_Backend::page/report.phtml">
                    <argument name="bugreport_url" xsi:type="string">https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues</argument>

So, if you want to remove the whole thing, including the version and bug report url, you could add this in any layout update file that is active on all admin pages:

<referenceContainer name="copyright" remove="true"/>

To remove copy rights and Magento version etc., on admin panel footer section.

You can change by using custom module. Please follow the below steps

Step 1: Create default.xml file like in below path


Step 2: Add below code to remove footer sections contents

<referenceContainer name="legal" remove="true"/>

After running the below command and provide file permission

php bin/magento c:f 

I found the file

BlockquoteOverriding the template file isn't the best practice though. The admin legal blocks are defined in:


but I could not find a place to insert the code <referenceContainer name="legal" remove="true"/>


You can simply remove the copyright block from layout file..

Please add following code to your default.xml file and check after cache clean.
