# How to get rid of beamer automatic numbering?

I am creating a presentation on beamer and the footpage is automatically numbering the slides. I would like to get rid of that numbering in all the slides but I only found partial solutions for specific slides so far.

• Which theme are you using? May 25 '18 at 14:49
• \setbeamertemplate{page number in head/foot}{} may work if you are using one of the standard themes May 25 '18 at 14:50
• I am using Madrid theme. I tried your solution but seemed not to work May 25 '18 at 15:25

The following works with beamer version >= 3.49. If it does not work for you, please update your beamer version.

\documentclass{beamer}
