Why remove Show Joomla Version?
Showing the Joomla Version is a huge security risk. Why? Because if a hacker knows what Joomla version your website is, and you are a version or thirty behind, you just gave the hacker a list of different ways that your website can be hacked.
I’m not sure why Joomla even has such a feature since it presents such a large security issue, but here is a simple way to remove the “Show Joomla Version” in Joomla 3.x
- Login to the administrator section of the site
- Go to Global Configuration -> Site
- In the Site Tab, Scroll down to the Metadata Settings
- Under the “Show Joomla Version” Click No

I totally agree. Why would Joomla create such a function that would jeopardize the security of the site. Having the Show Joomla Version is totally worthless.
