4. For confirmation, a pop-up window will appear. Type the server name or your six-digit authentication code in the respective fields for confirmation, and hit Delete Server.

Enter your server's name as it appears at the top of the pop-up.

NOTE: The authentication code is required only when you have enabled the two-factor authentication in the server. You can find this by opening the Authy or Google Authenticator app on your mobile device.
