Looks like you are using one of the Joomla Art templates.
Here is how you can edit it.

Open file: templates/ja_template/html/mod_footer/default.php, remove/change the text. Kindly keep the HTML mark-up.

Note: ja_template in the above path shall be the name of your template.

If you don't see such file:

Copy default.php file from the \plugins\system\jat3\base-themes\default\html\mod_footer\ folder to the /templates/ja_template/html/mod_footer/ folder. And then, open that newly created File and edit the text as above guides.

Well, each of them has almost similar procedure. However due to different frameworks and layouts, you may find slight differences.

Looks like a rocket theme. Go to \templates\rt_firenzie and look for index.php

Look between line number 298 to 304.

If you don't find it, download this file over your desktop using an ftp and search for the text "Etisym". You shall be able to locate one; replace it with your desired one.

Let me know if you find it difficult.

Hope this helps.
Thanks & Warm Regards

Did you try the download step i.e. download the file and then search inside the file.
I have the original template setup in local file system, I was able to locate it at the same location I mentioned in my earlier post.

Waiting for your inputs.
Thanks & Warm Regards
