Security within SharePoint 2013

Removing security

Logically, if you’ll be granting access to SharePoint 2013, you’ll be removing access, as well. Removing users from items or groups involves the same steps as adding users. You’ll begin to realize the convenience of managing users in groups as opposed to individually. Removing users from a group can be done in one location instead of each location where they’ve been added separately.

Remove a user from a group

  1. On the Home page, click the Settings button (the small gear icon next to the name of the logged-on user). On the menu that appears, click Site Settings.
