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

For instructions on deleting access keys for the root account, see Managing Access Keys for your AWS Account.

For instructions on deleting access keys for an IAM user, see Managing Access Keys for IAM Users.

Note: After an access key is deleted, it cannot be retrieved, and any users or applications that are using the access key are not able to programmatically access your account and resources until the deleted access key is replaced with a new one.

access key, delete, rotate
