Do you know who has access to your profiles/data via these platforms? Can you remember who you granted permission to?
A new free web resource called “mypermissions.org” gives you access to the various appropriate permissions pages for most of these popular platforms so you can check and manage who has access to your information.
I just tried it and found a few apps that I never use still have access to all of my data in Facebook from back in the day when I wasn’t so savvy about these permissions. So it has been very useful to go through and click some ‘X’ ‘s for these old unused apps.
Give it a try for yourself and you might be surprised how much access to your data you’re giving away – it is at least worth checking, especially if you are relatively active online.
I’ll be adding this tool to our list of free web resources here: Free Web Resources
I’d like to thank Ana Hoffman of Traffic Generation Cafe for kindly sharing this tip. Thanks Ana!
So give it a try and let us know what you think!! Even better if you know of any more free apps like this one, please let us know in the comments below and we’ll add them to our list.
