I want to delete my AWS access key. How do I do that?

Resolution

Important: After an access key is deleted, it can't be retrieved. Any users or applications that are using the access key aren't able to programmatically access your account and resources.

For instructions on deleting access keys for the AWS account root user, see Managing Access Keys for Your AWS Account Root User.

For instructions on deleting access keys for an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user, see Managing Access Keys for IAM Users.
