Delete AGOL hosted features when "update attributes only" set?

I have an ArcGIS Online hosted feature layer that has the Editing setting of "Update Attributes only" because that's what I want users to be able to do in the Collector map they are editing.  The feature layer is sync-enabled and they are working offline. I have probably 20 field users working with offline caches.


However, I discovered that I have some duplicate data in the hosted feature layer - about 5,000 points that I want to delete.


What is the best way to do this?  I know I can open the hosted feature layer in a web map with IsAdmin=true, but then it seems I can only click on one at a time and choose delete.


Is there any way to interact with the feature service as "admin" in Pro where I can select features and delete more than one at a time?  What about Python? 


The other thing I was wondering is if I could temporarily change the Edit settings of the hosted feature layer to "Add, update, and delete features" without affecting the offline caches my field workers have locally on their devices.
