Ubuntu – Remove sudo privileges from a user (without deleting the user)


If you give a user sudo privileges how can I remove the sudo privileges and make the user become just a regular user?

I used:

sudo adduser username sudo

Now I've changed my mind.

If you're like me, you are just trying to figure out how to take away sudo access from a user. It's easy, just open sudo, and type the following in. Keep in mind that USERNAME can be replaced by the profile you are doing this to. In terminal type:

sudo deluser USERNAME sudo

This will only take sudo access away from the profile named USERNAME, and will not delete!
