Most apps and websites these days allow you to use Facebook to login to their service, instead of the hassle of setting and remembering a new password.
However, most people don’t realize that when they create an account for an app or website using Facebook, they end up giving permission to share their activity and personal information.
After Facebook’s recent Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal, users have been spooked about the risk involved in sharing such personal data with third-party apps.
To be fair to Facebook, it has provided a way to delete the apps and websites you’re logged in to with Facebook, but it was quite tedious as you had to do it one at a time.
Facebook has just rolled out a new option that makes it even easier to delete the apps and websites using Facebook. It was first spotted by Matt Navarra It now allows you to bulk delete these apps and websites so they don’t have access to your data, so it reduces the risk of misusing it.
Follow these steps to delete the apps and websites you’re logged in to with Facebook:
Step 1: Tap on the more tab in the bottom right corner.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Settings under the SETTINGS section.
Step 3: Then tap on Account Settings.
Step 4: Scroll down and tap on Apps.
Step 5: You should finally be on the page where you will get the Logged in with Facebook option. Tap on it.
Step 6: On this screen, you can now select all the apps and websites you want to delete in and tap on the Remove button to prevent them from accessing your activity and personal information.
I was surprised at the number of apps I had signed into using Facebook. I couldn’t even remember some of them. You might want to review the list of apps and websites that are using your Facebook account and have access to your activity and personal information.
Let me know how it goes in the comments below.
