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. 

 

Thanks,
Jake
