You can remove user accounts from your site for various reasons, including the user's inactivity. You might want to remove the account if you do not expect him/her to return to the community. However, you may instead want to restrict a user from signing in to your community for abuse or inappropriate behavior. This prevents the reuse of the email address to register another account.
To remove a user account:
- Navigate to Control Panel Dashboard > Membership Administration > Members and Roles > Manage Users.
- Search for the user so the user account displays user list.
Click Delete next to that user account. The Delete <user> dialog appears.
- In the Reassign content to area, type in a community member name or select the option for the anonymous user.
- Click Delete User. The user's account is removed and all content created by that user is switched to ownership by the specified user.
