Steps to Easily Hide WordPress Widgets on Mobile Devices
Firstly, go to Appearance >> Widgets and find the list of active widgets on your WordPress Dashboard.
Secondly, select the widget which device visibility you want tweaked. For my example, I choose the Navigation Menu widget. Click it to reveal the options.
Then, click the Devices tab (mobile phone icon).
After that, from the dropdown list, choose which action to make. This time, I am hiding this widget on checked devices; thus, I choose “Hide on checked devices”.
Consequently, I am checking the boxes opposite Tablet and Mobile, so this widget will be hidden from these devices.
Click the Save button.
