Hide your Grafana version for unauthenticated users

Security through obscurity is discouraged by most people, but it should also never be ignored in my opinion. As a first step for Grafana, we can hide our version for anonymous users at the login screen.

Just add the following line to the [auth.anonymous] section in your grafana.ini:

# hide the grafana version for anonymous users
hide_version = true

When done, it should look similar to this:

[auth.anonymous]
# enable anonymous access
enabled = true

# specify organization name that should be used for unauthenticated users
org_name = Main Org.

# specify role for unauthenticated users
org_role = Viewer

# hide the grafana version for anonymous users
hide_version = true

Save the file and restart your Grafana server.

sudo service grafana-server restart
