Social networks are an integral part of everyday life in the modern world, and these sites and apps collect massive amounts of personal data on a daily basis. However, users also give away personal information on “fun” personality quizzes shared in Facebook feeds, clicking on website links posted in friends’ timelines, and by signing in to third-party apps with their Facebook accounts. When a user links a third party app to his or her Facebook account, the app is granted permission to access information in the Facebook profile: name, profile photos, username, user ID, and any other public information.

Select and edit the apps that have permission to use your information. Once an app has been blocked or removed from the app settings, it will no longer be able to access personal information associated with the Facebook account.
