Note, WordPress platform is released under the GPL license that is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software to your needs, so it is completely legal to remove or edit that message.

In order to edit that text, first of all, log in to your WordPress admin panel.

After that, navigate to Appearance – Customize tab:

Now, choose Footer -> Footer styles option.
