When you click on "Manage my alerts" from SharePoint list, it will only show your alerts on the SharePoint site:


If you are site admin and you want to delete alerts for other users, follow this:

  1. Go to Site Settings page
  2. Select "User alerts" under "Site Administration" (https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName/_layouts/15/sitesubs.aspx)
  3. To select a user, select Display alerts for, and then select Update.
  4. Next to the alert you want to delete, select the checkbox, and then select Delete Selected Alerts.
  5. Select OK.
