Hello, @Technosatmedia

In order to delete the ssh key, you need to open your account settings by click on “Your Settings” menu under your profile icon. Then click on “Security” and on the next page you’ll see the SSH keys, you can click the More button and expand the dropdown menu and then select Delete.

Hope this helps!

Regards, Alex
