A pop-up box will appear warning you that transactions will no longer automatically import into your bank account in Xero if you deactivate the feed. The pop-up box also lets you know that you can re-activate the feed at any time. When you are sure you want to proceed, click on Deactivate:

You will now be taken back to the main Bank Accounts screen. Here you should see a message and a green button telling you that automatic bank feeds are available for this account. If you see this message, you have successfully deactivated your feed:
