  1. A confirmation will display asking if you want to delete the security group. When a security group is deleted, it is removed from the instances it was associated to. You cannot delete a security group if it is in use by a running server. You will need to terminate the server. If the server is terminated, the security group will be removed. You will not be able to launch a server without a security group.
  2. Click Delete.
