MyPermissions Is One Convenient Place To Start Cleaning Up App Permissions

The start of the year is a good time to check which apps have access to your private information. MyPermissions makes this process very easy by linking directly to app permissions pages for popular services such as Google and Facebook.

MyPermissions doesn't require access at all to your accounts. It's basically a simple but really useful bookmark to the permissions pages for Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Instagram and Flickr.

Clicking the links to see all your connected apps, however, you might be surprised to see how many you've given permission to (and, if you're anything like me, forgotten you've connected). You can now quickly revoke access from the permissions pages.

MyPermissions also offers an If This Then That (ifttt) recipe to remind you monthly via email to check your permissions, but of course you can set up your own reminder on your calendar. You could just bookmark the permissions pages for those services yourself, but MyPremissions is a handy single place to start.
