  • HTML <footer> leaves a footer for its closest sectioning content or root element.
  • The <footer> HTML element can also be used inside individual blocks in a web document (apart from web document's main footer content).

<footer> HTML defines a footer in webpages. The <footer> in HTML contains generally repetitive content like contact details, authors' information, licenses, copyright information, etc.

Remember: the <footer> in HTML has no special attributes, but supports all global ones.

Example
<footer>
  <address>
    Postal Address: Door No.00, Street, City, State, Country.
  </address>
  <p>Copyright © 2018 All rights reserved.</p>
</footer>

Note: you should not use footer in HTML as a sectioning element. It does not add new sections to the outline.
