Revoking 3rd Party Apps Access to Twitter
Every time you log into a website with your Twitter username you allow that site to access, not only your Twitter account, but also some of the information you hold there.
If there is an option I will always log in using Twitter over Facebook as Facebook holds so much more information about us.
I happily use Twitter as a log in option, but just know that it does leave your account slightly vulnerable. If anything happens to the site – it gets hacked for instance – that does leave you open to someone being able to access your account through there.
I have never had any trouble with that but just wanted to let you know.
It is partly why I go in and revoke access every now and then to all the places that I had authorised my Twitter account as a log in or access option.
It is really quick and easy to revoke access. I take you through it in a couple of minutes on this video.
Thank you Stacey! I had no idea how to do that, this was so helpful, I really appreciate this post.
