About deleting GitHub Apps
If you own a GitHub App or are an app manager for a GitHub App, you can delete the GitHub App registration. For more information about GitHub App managers, see "About GitHub App managers."
When you delete a GitHub App registration, the app will be uninstalled from all accounts that the app is installed on.
Note: If your GitHub App is published on GitHub Marketplace, you must contact GitHub Support and ask them to remove your app from GitHub Marketplace before you can delete your app.
Deleting a GitHub App
Navigate to your account settings.
- For a GitHub App owned by a personal account, in the upper-right corner of any page, click your profile photo, then click Settings.
- For a GitHub App owned by an organization, in the upper-right corner of any page, click your profile photo, then click Your organizations. Then, to the right of the organization, click Settings.
In the left sidebar, click Developer settings.
In the left sidebar, click GitHub Apps.
Select the GitHub App you want to delete.
In the left sidebar, click Advanced.
Click Delete GitHub App.
In the confirmation box, type the name of the GitHub App to confirm you want to delete it.
Click I understand the consequences, delete this GitHub App.
These steps only delete your GitHub App registration, and all of the organization and account installations it may have. They do not delete any code that you wrote for your app. However, any code that relies on your GitHub App's credentials will no longer function.
