Delete groups


This article is for G Suite administrators. To manage your own groups, visit the Google Groups help." "

As a G Suite Groups administrator, you can delete any group in your organization. When you delete a group, the group cannot be restored. Members don't have access to files or anything else shared in the group. Also, messages sent to the group's address are not delivered. However, group members' user accounts are not deleted.

People in your organization who are group owners can also delete groups using new or classic Groups.
