How to check the apps you have given access to your Facebook account… and how to change permissions

A few weeks ago I was asking for help in qualifying to be considered for the Chase Mission Main Street Grant.  In order to vote, people had to have a Facebook account and they had to grant Chase permission to access their account.  This left many people wary and unwilling to help me out.

I totally understand that you don’t want a bunch of apps to have access to your feed and your friends… I  give very few permission myself.

However, it is possible to do so in certain situations and then go back in and adjust the permissions or delete the app altogether.  It is also a good idea to double check what apps have access to your Facebook account from time to time – you might be surprised at what you find!

I walked a few friends through the process and thought I’d do a short video to show you how to go in and clean up any permissions you are no longer wanting to grant.

Here it is – I recommend you go take a peek at your account and decide if you still want the apps on your list to be there.


Prefer a visual map instead of a video?  Here is what you do…
