Some people have been asking How to review and delete Facebook apps. Overtime we forget how many applications that we have allowed access to Facebook – For which our friends information and our own information is being stored by some of these apps and we might not even be using them any more.
You probably don’t even realise how many applications you have connected to your Facebook account – I know I add a lot but I had no idea how many. Maybe it was a one off that you allowed an application to Facebook and you’ve now forgotten about. Its good to check now and then and go through the apps that you don’t want – especially if you have been having any trouble with spam or access to your account, it could be a rouge app.
How to review and delete Facebook apps
Its much simpler now that it was before – Facebook has recently made this much easier for us to go through and get rid of unwanted Facebook applications.
Simply – log into your account
1 – Click the arrow on the far right hand side and click Settings
2 – On the left click Apps
Here you will see all of the applications that are connected to your Facebook account, in a list like this – I have hundreds so I am going through mine now.
On Facebook, your name, profile picture, cover photo, gender, networks, username, and user ID are always publicly available, including to apps – Apps also have access to your friends list and any information you choose to make public.
3 – Hover over the app that you want to remove and you will see two options
- Editing settings – Here you will see what information that you have allowed this app – sometimes you can change this – but mostly the app will require this information for you to use it.
- Remove – Just click the X – a box will pop up asking to you confirm click remove. And its gone!
4 – Don’t worry if you are unsure if you actually use that app anymore – as if you do go to use it and its not been allowed by Facebook, it will just ask you again.
