Is there a clean way to not have WordPress send the X-Redirect-By response header when redirects happen? I'd like to disable it in order not to expose information about our software stack. Something I can hook into functions.php perhaps?

This line added to functions.php (ideally in a child theme, or a plugin) will remove it:

add_filter( 'x_redirect_by', '__return_false' );
  • That totally works! Thanks Jacob.
