Today we will talk about how to control which apps have access to your Facebook data. Malicious apps can use your Facebook data without your knowledge. Therefore it is important to clean up to protect your privacy.
Some apps sometimes ask you to sign in with your Facebook account information. This is certainly practical but the apps have access to data from the social network and could easily take them, as happened in the Cambridge Analytica case.
This is the time to go monitor the settings of your account to eventually eliminate the apps that you no longer use or that seem suspicious. We give you the procedure to follow:
How to Control Which Apps Have Access To Your Facebook Data
Sign in to your Facebook account from your web browser then click on the small triangle at the top of the window and select Settings.
Click Apps and Websites in the left column.
You can then edit the rights of each application by clicking View and edit below the app name. Uncheck all boxes then click the Save button. Thus, the apps will not have access to your data.
If you find a suspicious app or do not want to let your information go, feel free to disconnect it from your Facebook account by deleting it. To do this, tick on the small box next to the name of the app, then click on the Remove button. Note that some applications may store personal data, in which case you will also be asked to remove this information
