How to remove the primary administrator from an organization

Warning: Removing the primary administrator (admin) from an organization can have serious and unrepairable consequences.

For example, if an issue arises with the DNS settings for your organization’s custom domain and the required DNS records stop propagating, all custom domain addresses will become disabled. If this happens, none of your organization’s users will be able to log in and re-authenticate the domain.

If no such issues arise, then all users can continue to access their organization emails as usual.

The instructions for removing a primary admin are identical to those for removing a member or secondary admin (see above). Only another admin can delete a primary admin account.
