The only way to delete a commit is to do a force push (git push -f) of a history that doesn't include it.

You can prevent this on specific branches under "Branch Permissions".  I think that best practice is to disallow force pushes (or "rewriting history") on long-lived branches such as master and (if you use it) develop.

I'm not sure that there's a specific way to see who did the force push, but I'd be suspicious of the authors of any commits made after yours. 

can you please provide me screenshot for Branch Permissions" or "rewriting history" setting
