Remove the Drupal 8 Generator Meta Tag

Apart from removing the generator meta tag in Drupal 8, tags such as MobileOptimized and HandheldFriendly are not needed either:


function THEME_NAME_page_attachments_alter(&$page){
    $meta_tags = array('system_meta_generator', 'MobileOptimized', 'HandheldFriendly');
    foreach ($page['#attached']['html_head'] as $key => $value) {
        if (in_array($value[1], $meta_tags)) {


In Drupal 8, the meta generator is system_meta_generator
