Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Deleting users from a security group, part of SharePoint 2013 Essential Training.
Just as we can add users or groups of users to a security group, we can also delete or remove them from a security group. So, if for example, we look at the members group. We saw earlier that everyone, the group that is all people who can be authenticated on this server, not everyone in the world, but everyone who can get this far, actually has member permissions. And that's not what we want to do here. We actually would prefer to have all of our members either listed here, or in other groups that we then provide permissions to here. One of the two.
But we don't want everyone to have member permissions. We do want everyone to have permissions that are similar to visitor permissions, and we'll work on that in a bit. But right now, we're going to remove the Everyone group here. So, we'll select it first. We'll choose Actions > Remove Users From Group. So, we're going to remove everyone from the members group. And that works. So, now when I return back to my settings and look at the permissions tab and open up members again, I'll find that I only have members, members here. And if I want to find out what permissions everyone has, remember that I can go to check permissions.
And we can say, okay, show me what everyone has. And we find that the everyone group is a member of the visitors group. And therefore, anyone in the organization that isn't given specific members or owners permission, will still have the ability to read here on our site. It's always a good idea to go through that process after you delete a user or group. Go ahead and check their Permissions. It's a great double-check to ensure that you've set the permissions as you intended, particularly if someone is moving from one area of your organization to another or has left employment or consulting with your group. So, always go back, double-check, and make sure that the permissions that are remaining are exactly the permissions that you would expect to see. (SOUND).
And yes they are. So, that's how we delete a user or group. Simply choose them and delete them.
