# Remove page number on first page using fancyhdr

I am using fancyhdr and this is my preamble. The first page still has 1 in the footer while other pages have Page 2, Page 3 and so on. How to remove the 1 on the first page?

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[scale=0.82]{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fontencoding{T1}
\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{Page \thepage}

• After \begin{document} add \thispagestyle{empty}. – Zarko Feb 5 '16 at 2:43

You're probably also issuing \maketitle, which issues \thispagestyle{plain}. The plain page style inserts the footer only (as \thepage). As such, you can override this and issue \thispagestyle{empty} immediately after \maketitle:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fancyhdr,lipsum}

\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{Page \thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}

\title{A title}
\author{An author}

\begin{document}

\maketitle% This also issues \thispagestyle{plain}, so...
