In SPOnline site, One of my document library's field name is called "Category". On the view it is showing as "Category:Finance(2)". My client doesn't want this text("Cateory:") .It seems like an OOB behaviour in SPOnline. But is there a way I can hide/remove this text in Both Modern/Classic Views ?

Thanks in advance.

For modern view, i don't think you can hide that group by name. For classic view, you can use SharePoint Designer to change the XSL or use JavaScript/HTML and recreate your own your list and get full control of how it is displayed.
