Have you ever given a 3rd party application or website permission to access your online accounts, such as your social media accounts or your office software accounts? For example, have you clicked “OK” when playing a new game on Facebook without reading the terms and conditions, or have you tweeted from an app that’s not Twitter?
If the developers of those 3rd party applications and websites manage their security rigorously, you shouldn’t have a problem. However, if any of those third-party apps or websites have poor security practices, or if the developers decide to produce spam or offensive content, you could lose valuable data or your reputation.
Check which 3rd party applications and websites can access then revoke access from every app you don’t absolutely trust; log out of every session you don’t absolutely need.
