When was the last time you checked your google account for applications you have given access and permission to at one point or the other?
You gave these sites and apps access to some of your Google Account data, including info that may be sensitive. You should check periodically and often to remove access for those you no longer trust or use.
It is not uncommon to grant third-party apps access to your gmail when you require their services. It is also not uncommon that most times you hardly ever get to use their services again. So why won’t you revoke the permission you gave these apps after they have served their purpose?
I don’t know why you won’t, but i can tell you why i don’t. It’s simple.
I always forget 😢😏🤦🏾♀I am so caught up in living that i forget such tiny checks are important to staying safe on the world wide web.
To check now, simply click this: https://myaccount.google.com/permissions – this takes you straight to the applications page that have one access or the other to your google mail/account.
P.S: Got other frequently used online services like twitter, zapier, facebook, etc? Go check apps you gave permission to now. That option can usually be found under settings, applications/security/permissions.
