To clear an identity:
1. Navigate to the "Accounts" tab.
2. Click the three dots corresponding to the account you want to clear and select "Set on-chain identity."
3. Select "Clear Identity", and sign and submit the transaction.
In addition, the Council can kill an identity that it deems erroneous. This results in a slash of the deposit.
