After several logins with your Facebook account on sites and apps that you can’t even remember, you’d like to take stock. You would like to see which apps are connected to Facebook , so you can check them and disable them if necessary. In fact, if you don’t use them, there is no point in letting them communicate with your account through the social network API.
In the next tutorial, I’ll explain what you need to do to find a list of apps that are associated with your Facebook profile, both from apps and from the website. You should be able to deactivate them remotely. Then let’s see how to proceed.
Manage Apps Connected To Your Facebook
Before moving on to browsing Facebook related apps, I wanted to point out that if you are going to remove the link to these apps, they will most likely stop working . There is no assurance that you will erase the associated data. However, it is clear that these applications will no longer be allowed to “grab” data from the social network. If, for example, you ran a quiz to find the best photos for Facebook, then this tool will stop working.

With that in mind, I’ve included below ideas to help you succeed. Continue reading and follow the instructions depending on the device you are using.
What’s the point of linking apps to Facebook.
It should be noted that all applications always require, in accordance with Facebook’s policies, permission to access data and account information. For the most part, these permissions are required to use the third-party app in all of its functions. It’s a bit like downloading and installing new apps from the App Store or Google Play.
Usually, however, especially for quick access to application functions, all requests, including the request for data access, are quickly confirmed and accepted.
Thus, this mechanism results in completely uncontrolled data access control. In order to be able to strictly control access to Facebook data related to all third-party applications, it is recommended that you do a good job of tweaking your application settings. Read on to find out how to do this.
View apps connected to Facebook
For proper viewing of Facebook connected apps and better control, I suggest you login from your computer . Use your browser and connect to the social networking site. Then proceed as follows:
- Log in to your Facebook account
- Click the Settings button and select the Apps & Websites option in the left sidebar .
- You will see all apps and websites that are logged in with your Facebook username and password.
In the Options section, you can click the Edit button in the Apps, Websites & Games section. Then you can change the way you interact with third-party apps through Facebook.

Instead, in the Applications and Websites section, you can see which services these are:
On the tabs, you will find the apps you are using and the apps you haven’t used for a long time. Not only that, but also what you deleted (to view history). Be careful who has access to your Facebook account then, because they can spy on your past activities in this way.
Disable apps connected to Facebook
For Apps and Facebook related websites , place them on the expired tab (s) . Then click the Show All button to expand the list of apps and websites. Now check and select all unused services. Then select the Delete and confirm option .
After that, go back to the Active tab and perform the same operation there, but with great attention . Yes, because this section contains applications that you have recently used. So if you turn them off, chances are the service on your computer, tablet or smartphone will suddenly stop working.
