Meta name="generator"

I notice Webflow adds the meta code:

<meta name="generator" content="Webflow">

Apart from defining that the site was created by Webflow, does this code have any purpose, and is it ok to be removed manually?

Hi, it’s most probably harmless to remove it manually. I quickly searched about it, can’t find a list of benefits for it. Last time I dealt with name:generator was to remove the one automatically added by… Frontpage, around '98 :smiley:

Now, I don’t see a benefit to remove it either. You’re going to lose a lot of time if you do it each time you get your code, and removing the line doesn’t make your code white labeled. So I’d say don’t worry about it.
