First of all, let’s understand how third-party apps or web services can access your Facebook account in general. Actually, it’s simple enough, every time you don’t want to create an account in some app or web service, you have another option – just log in using your Google or Facebook account.
In that case, you give that service access to your Facebook account and I bet you don’t even read exactly what features in your account the app is accessing.
Personally, I’ve done this many times, so at some point when I thought about my privacy, I realized that I had a whole pile of apps that I didn’t really want to see in my Facebook account.
If you too want to check which apps have access to your Facebook account, here’s how you can do it.
