API Reference (API Version 2010-05-08)

DeleteLoginProfile

Deletes the password for the specified IAM user, which terminates the user's ability to access AWS services through the AWS Management Console.

Important

Deleting a user's password does not prevent a user from accessing AWS through the command line interface or the API. To prevent all user access you must also either make any access keys inactive or delete them. For more information about making keys inactive or deleting them, see UpdateAccessKey and DeleteAccessKey.
