  • Why are you trying to remove the acf fields using remove_meta_box? A better way to do this would be to add a filter when ACF gets the field group and to alter the location rules so that it’s not shown if your setting says to hide it.

    add_filter('acf/get_field_group', 'my_alter_field_group');
    function my_alter_field_group($group) {
      // alter location rules
      return $group;

    To see what the location rules should be and how to alter them, output a field group to code and take a look at the location argument array.
