Remove Authorized Sites from your Facebook Account

When you log into a web site, using your Facebook account, you give that site access to some (and sometimes a lot) of your personal information, and even your friends information. Maybe it’s just your name, or email, or more, but still, it’s access.

You should try and get into the habit of clearing these out on a regular basis. It just takes a few seconds, and you can quickly revoke access to the left overs. Sites you use regularly should be left intact.

My rule is …. weekly. If I visit a site at least once a week, then I want the authorization to stay. Less than weekly, is easy enough to click that “yes, i agree” button when that site needs access.
